One habit I discovered several years was waking up and immediately having a cup of hot water with the juice of half a lemon, a sprinkle of Himalayan pink salt and a teaspoon of grated ginger.
Lemon juice health benefits
Lemon is a powerful alkalizer, flushing toxins out of your body and regulating your pH levels. Also known as the power of hydrogen, pH is used to measure the level of toxicity in your body. This acid build up is connected to 2 factors, bad food and high stress. Removing it has many benefits, including improved digestion and cleansing the liver, boosting the immune system and increasing the flow of blood and reducing inflammation (see this article about inflammation and depression). For more info on pH, check out the site mindbodygreen.com.
Lemons are also a high source of vitamin C as well as B-complex vitamins and copper, iron, magnesium, calcium, all of which are essential for your brain to function efficiently (Source).
Himalayan pink salt health benefits
Himalayan pink salt is loaded with 84 essential minerals which the body can absorb. These include magnesium, the 4th most abundant mineral in the body which helps in reducing stress, alleviating anxiety and improving sleep (Source). Like lemons, it also regulates your pH level, extracting acid from the body and especially in the brain (Source).
You might find it hard to find this in supermarkets so I’ve included a link .
Ginger health benefits
Now I’ll admit I’m not a huge fan of Ginger, but I can’t deny its power. As well as having strong anti-inflammatory properties, it also improves the absorption of minerals, complimenting the lemon and salt. You can pick up ginger in the fruit a veg aisle in a supermarket, but alternatively you can buy it online .
The boost this drink gives will promote a healthier you and may aid in overcoming any distress you might be experiencing.
I hope this helps and please comment and share if you think it might help any one.
