(NaturalNews) The benefits of drinking warm water infused with lemon has been touted by many as a healthy way to kick-start the day. Beginning the day in this manner has been embraced in Ayurvedic (literally meaning "life" and "knowledge") philosophy, a way of life that focuses on interconnectedness, balance, and an overall harmony between thoughts, action and feeling that fosters emotional and physical healing.(1)(2) However, one does not have to subscribe to every detail behind this way of life to reap the benefits; many people simply enjoy knowing that sipping warm lemon water has many health benefits.

The incredible health benefits of drinking warm lemon water

According to Dr. Joel Kahn, an integrative cardiologist and clinical professor of medicine, starting the day with this soothing drink has several health benefits. He says, " . . . if you can only make time for one ritual that will improve your health, let it be this: start the day out with a mug of warm water and the juice of half a lemon."(1)

For starters, lemons are loaded with vitamin C, which plays a role in everything from boosting the immune system to providing people with clearer skin.(1) Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, flushing the body of free radicals that can damage cells and lead to conditions such as cancer and arthritis, plus it's essential for cell and tissue growth.(3) Additionally, when toxins are purged from the blood, the skin is not as prone to blemishes and wrinkles.

The potassium content of lemons also makes this drink an ideal choice to help heart health since potassium helps regulate the heart's electrical activity.(3)

Furthermore, lemon juice is known to keep the urinary tract healthy. Dr. Kahn explains that lemons increase the urination rate in the body, and that frequent urination can help flush out toxins and lead to a healthier urinary tract.(1)

As for the water aspect, it's essential for any person seeking optimal health. About 60 percent of a person's body weight is comprised of water, which is necessary for organs and cells to function effectively.(3) Drinking more of it helps the body manage its natural state.

Warm water helps to ensure a properly-functioning digestive system by it stimulating the digestive tract so that toxins are loosened and removed.(1)

So what are you waiting for? Start the day with warm lemon water to boost your overall health and keep your body functioning at its best.
