Do you have digestion woes? Heartburn, constipation, gas, or bloating?
Contrary to what you may think, this could actually be from low, not high, stomach acid resulting in difficulty digesting your food. Most importantly, the undigested food causes gas to build and put pressure on the valve between the stomach and the esophagus (the tube that food goes down). As a result, as the gas builds it pushes open the valve and now you’ve got acid where it shouldn’t be, in the esophagus, which causes heartburn. A half of lemon (as long as you can tolerate that) in warm water first thing in the morning may be a simple remedy to get the digestive juices flowing and skin glowing.
Lemons in water benefits:
First, it increases acid in the stomach to break down food and decrease indigestion, gas and bloating.
It also cleanses and stimulates the liver and helps thin the bile, which is great for constipation. Your liver does a lot of detoxing during the night so first thing in the morning is the best time to move these toxins down and out. The warm water with the lemon juice helps to gently detox your body each and every day. Amazingly simple and effective.
