If you begin your day with a glass of lemon water, you will help every system in your body work properly. Although lemon water has become quite popular recently, a lot of people don’t prepare it in the right way to get the benefits from this morning ritual.
Drinking warm lemon water the first thing in the morning does provide your body with certain important nutrients, but if you use the lemon together with its peel you’ll get even more nutrients and benefits.
Another thing you might do wrong when preparing your morning lemon water, is squeezing the lemons instead of boiling them. This method of preparation will help you obtain all important benefits from lemons.
Here’s the right way to prepare warm lemon water:
- 20 oz. of water
- 6 lemons
- Organic honey
Slice the lemons and add them in the water. Boil for three minutes and remove from heat. After the mixture cools a bit, remove the lemon slices from the water. You can even let the lemon stay in the water overnight and then strain it the next morning to have it as a cold beverage.
Add some honey to taste in the liquid, and mix well. Drink one glass, and keep the rest of the liquid in a glass bottle.

These are just some of the health benefits you’ll get by drinking this simple, yet powerful drink as a first thing in the morning. Don’t forget to keep the peel when slicing the lemons, as this will help you get these benefits.
