Water is extremely essential to our body. In fact, our body and brain is made up of 80% and 70% water, respectively.
When you wake in the morning, your body is normally already 2 cups dehydrated. Hence, you need to consume water regularly to provide your body with energy, reduce food cravings, and increase your concentration.
Moreover, drinking 2 cups of filtered water is much more beneficial compared to tap water, which is loaded with antibiotics, chlorine, hormones, and other metals that directly enter your system.
The impure tap water can lead to various health complications, as it weakens the immune systems. An acidic environment of the body can also lead to feelings of fatigue, low energy, digestive complications, weight gain, among other side effects.
Therefore, it’s advisable to always take pure water, along with fresh organic vegetables. Alkaline water filtration systems can also be very beneficial, though they’re quite expensive.
Here’s a recipe for the morning alkaline water:
What you need:
- Himalayan pink Salt – 1 teaspoon
- 1 organic lemon, washed, cut into eighths
- 1 pitcher of clean filtered water
Add your lemon pieces into the pitcher of water, and then add your Himalayan pink salt. Leave it on overnight at room temperature.
When you wake up in the morning, drink 2 glasses of this mixture.
Note: Never use this drink if you have high blood pressure!
