1. Lemon water is the perfect way to hydrate, purify, and revitalize your body each morning. By adding freshly squeezed lemon juice to your water you “revot” the water and revitalize it.

Consider an early morning ritual of squeezing half a lemon into 16 ounces of your water upon waking. This deep form of hydration will alkalize and awaken your mind and energize your body for the day. Better still, boil your water and save in a covered jar overnight, this will allow the water to settle before drinking (avoid drinking the bottom part). While you can use lemon juice to super charge your water, try adding a teaspoon of turmeric, crushed ginger and garlic, cucumber, or herbs in your water this little trick will not only help recharge your water and alkalize your whole body with a bit of flavor but it will also help cleanse and stimulate your organs which will make them feel and function better.
