👉🏽 DO YOU START YOUR MORNING WITH LEMON WATER?⁣

✅SUPPORTS BILE PRODUCTION:⁣⁣
Lemon water contains certain constituents that can encourage the liver to produce bile which is an acid that is required for digestion (Hecke et al., 2012). Remember, proper bile flow is important for thyroid health! ⁣

🍋HELPS EXCRETE OXALATES:⁣
Lemons are rich in citric acid. This compound prevents stone formation by two mechanisms. First, it binds with urinary calcium, thereby reducing the supersaturation of urine. In addition, it binds calcium oxalate crystals and prevents crystal growth (Li et al., 2019). ⁣

🛡GLUCOSE CONTROL?⁣

In one study, lemon polyphenols decreased Insulin levels in rats that were fed a high fat diet to the same level of those rats that were fed a LOW fat diet. In addition, Leptin level decreased, although this was insignificant (Jung et al., 2006). It may also slow down the rate of carbohydrate absorption.  ⁣ ⁣

💥TAKEAWAY:⁣⁣
If you enjoy lemon water in the morning, keep drinking it (with a straw to avoid destroying enamel on your teeth). Lemon water is a useful tool in our wellness quest!⁣⁣
