Crystal Davis lives in the United States, and she decided to drink hot water with lemon and honey every morning on an empty stomach, for a whole year. She was curious to see what kind of changes will occur in her body.
At the end of this experiment we can freely say that she was positively shocked. And here in this article we will present you her confession:
“Until a few years ago I used to buy these lemon and honey drinks in the pharmacies when I had the flu. Of course, they helped me a lot, but I must admit that I was a bit skeptical when I took this challenge. However, it is quite different to drink real lemon juice. It is so much better and healthier than the powdered one you buy in the pharmacies.
And now I can say that I am very happy. I haven’t had a cold for a whole year. Also I haven’t had a stomach flu or any other disease, even though I sometimes felt as if I would catch something, but it did not happen. In fact, I was so amazed with this drink that I started taking it everywhere with me, even when I traveled somewhere.
Also, I have become a morning person and have no need for coffee. I have more energy and feel happier in the morning, which was not the case. Before it took me an hour after waking up to actually see again. People around me say that I am now much more comfortable to be around.
I generally use half a fresh lemon and a teaspoon of organic honey in a classic cup. To prepare this potion, first you need to boil the water, and leave it to cool a bit, so that the honey can dissolve. Now pour the lemon juice and drink this drink immediately after waking up. Note that sometimes the lemon juice can be more or less acidic, therefore if the lemon is too sour feel free to add some extra honey to this drink to improve the taste. Also, if half a lemon is too much for you, then in the beginning you can use quarter of a lemon, until you get used to.”
Here are some of the benefits of drinking this tea in the morning:
Protects against infections
Since this is the first thing you do in the morning, we can freely say that this drink stimulates the digestive system and moisturizes the colon, so you will have no problem with constipation. It also acts as a diuretic, it cleanses the urinary system and protects your body from infections.
Lemon helps the liver to produce more bile, so that the body can easily break down complex food and extract all the useful ingredients. Honey has antibacterial properties that protect against any infections. Also, it helps in the production of mucus in the stomach and release of toxins from the body.
