Weight Loss and Other Benefits With Honey Lemon Water

I had once read an article long back about detoxification. The article was so complicated and difficult to understand, that I felt as if detoxification was some kind of surgery. Even funnier was the fact that the article kept mentioning some kind of secret decoction that was being used for detoxification.

It was after these many years that I realized that detoxification was a simple process of detoxifying your body of all the toxins that get deposited in your intestinal linings. And when I got to know about the secret decoction which was nothing but lime water, I couldn’t stop laughing at myself.

That’s right! Honey Lemon water is that secret decoction that can help you get rid of all the toxins in your body. Lemon itself is a very useful compound, but when combined with Honey, the benefits just go endless.

We all know that drinking water in the morning is a great way to start your body’s functions. But at the same time adding one tablespoon of honey and a little bit of lemon juice in luke warm water can give a lot more of health benefits. This glass of warm lemon honey water every morning can improve your health by detoxifying impurities from your body and also cleanses your body. This is the secret decoction I was talking about earlier.

Lemon and honey both contain antibacterial, antioxidant properties which boost the immune system. Combination of lemon water with honey is effective in reducing weight very fast. It is recommended to drink this preparation everyday, first thing in the morning without brushing or gargling. Taking this mixture everyday in an empty
stomach will help you reach your weight loss goal. And if you want faster results you can drink at night before going to bed as well.

To make the mixture all you have to do is, in a glass of warm water add the juice of half a lemon and one tea spoon of honey to it. Mix well and drink it immediately.

Now lets take a look on what all other benefits does lemon honey water have:

1). Boost Immune System:

The lymphatic system is an important part of our body. As per an experts a dehydrated lymphatic system is one of the leading causes of illness. Lack of water and essential fluids in the lymphatic system can make you feel sluggish, fatigued, lead to constipation, disturbed sleep, high or low blood pressure, stress and lack in mental function. So drinking this mixture early in the morning gives your lymphatic system a boost and hydrates the entire system.

3). Cleans the stomach and improves the functioning of the colon:

Human body needs cleaning for better functioning, just like machine does. Whenever we eat we are not only taking in nutrients, but we are also ingesting toxins and other substances that can be harmful for us. The undigested food and dead bacteria can coat the inner lining of the stomach and intestinal walls. This builds up toxins  leads to bloating and diseases.

By drinking honey lemon water in the morning, these toxins are washed out of the stomach and intestine, leading to a cleansing of the colon as well, which results in helping your body absorb nutrients more efficiently.
