Here’s a great way to “get things moving downstairs” in the morning that won’t make you wiggy for the rest of the day like coffee will. It’ll wake up your digestive system before eating breakfast and get you ready for the day, so to speak. Most people who try it swear by it.
Ready for this amazing secret recipe?
Hot water + lemon
That’s it. Put on the kettle, slice a piece of lemon, pour. Simple enough to add to the busiest schedule and oh-so worth it.
The warm water applies mass to the digestive system kicking it into action. Also, warm water will leave the stomach quicker than cold water since the body doesn’t have to expend energy warming it up first. The lemon is added since it actually aids the bowels in eliminating waste more efficiently and it will give you a good dose of micronutrients to boot.
It’s a simple trick, used for centuries and worth adding to your repertoire.

Some tips as below:
1. An excellent tip.I used the lemon drink since 2 month and it boost my energy and is a great cleanse.I bought this book The Complete Master Cleanse by Tom Woloshyn,excellent book to read, it consist of lemon,maple syrup and cayenne pepper.It detox,ridding your body of parasites,flushing the colon,lose weight,alleviating allergies,increasing energy.It has improved my health considerable,a worth while book to read.
2. Yes, l have tried that too, its great, but not for long time. Our body needs aching too. After a little while we need another old trick. Have sour apple and a glass of cold water, the results are the same .Then switch it for warm water, one spoon of honey, and a full spoon of apple cyder vinegar—-A few days into of the above, you go back to the lemon with water. Its a routine and our body has a variety, like we all need in different ways…
3. I’ve tried this before. I generally resort to it when I am having a ‘detox‘ period from coffee and tea. I find it is a nice break from caffeine and its simplicity is what makes it great. I even bring it in a thermos to school (student) and because we are only allowed with water in the classrooms, the teachers don’t seem to mind. I would really recommend this to everyone and if you want to know where I first got the idea: It was an episode of friends “The one Where they’re going to party” where Chandler and Joey and Ross go to the coffee house after a night of trying to party like they were young again. Chandler, tired after a long day, asks gunther for some hot water with a little lemon instead of coffee. This was sort of a wierd influence, but hey… whatever works.
4. Absolutely a fantastic idea. The lemon cleanses, the hot water soothes your stomach and whole body overall. I drink it on a daily basis along with a couple cups of Green-tea on a daily basis as well. I have heard of this recipe for years and years but only started it since 2005. I drink this on a daily basis, if I don’t I get headaches, I feel bloating and I miss the cleansing feeling this that comes with it, I guess my body got use to it, since I have been doing it for a few years now on a daily basis,as I write this email, I am having a cup right now, it also help with digestion.
