Water with lemon against coffee
• Water with lemon against coffee
Happy people who live somewhere in the backwoods of northern Italy, the morning wake-rays caressing sun and birds singing. But the majority of the inhabitants of the metropolis - strong coffee. The bigger, the better. And often without a cup of refreshing beverage brain simply is not included. But what if instead of a caffeine drink warm water with lemon in the morning? The result has forced thousands of people to reconsider their routine.
Reviews about the benefits of water with lemon is not so long ago, just aroused the internet. The use of "tea without tea" has the potential to turn into a real cult with ardent supporters. "Viral" popularity of simple means could not get past the reporters. Even respected worldwide edition of Business Insider decided to check out the hype around the lemon drink empirically.
To this end, they agreed to a journalist for a month to start the morning than with your favorite coffee and a cup of warm water, which put a couple of slices of lemon and juice of 1/4 dissolved citrus. That's what the girl felt the effects "in their own skin."
1. Improved digestion and gone frequent swelling
This was the first effect, which Holly Smith (journalist) felt after just a few days after the start of "lemon marathon." For comments the journalist appealed to the gastroenterologist, and he confirmed: citric acid really "wakes up" the stomach in the morning, so that a good digestion is provided throughout the day. Furthermore, the combination of citric acid and a warm water has a mild laxative effect and a diuretic. And due to this morning puffiness and even the "bags" under the eyes go to lunch already. However, be prepared: have to run to the restroom and back.
2. The skin became purer
The fat luster bothered estestvoispytatelnitsu until the evening, and the already infrequent acne completely disappeared. Holly can not tell the difference, "amazing", but definitely noticed it in the mirror. Obviously, the reason for that were the improvement in digestion, which rid the body (and skin including) of all superfluous. So that girls with skin problems should take this life hacking note. Everything is cheaper than costly foams and serum.
3. Energy and vigor significantly increased
Like millions of other "early birds", before the girl could not think that he could survive without coffee until lunch. It turns out that this is possible. Already on the 10th day of the marathon avid coffee lover has reduced the consumption of drink almost three times and at the same time felt more cheerful than before. What it is to say "thank you" as the tonic properties of lemon and banal placebo effect. After receiving a warm portion of the water body "out of habit" I thought it was caffeine. A great way to wean myself to drink coffee buckets.
4. The common cold is faster and easier to
Around the middle of lemon marathon Holly picked up the flu. Even a well-earned sick girl did not stop his experiment, but on the contrary - to increase the "tea without tea" consumption doubled. After a couple of days, the journalist was back in the ranks. A reasonable explanation for how and why plain water with lemon helped better than tablets received from the therapist: a warm drink increases the outflow of mucus and thereby facilitates the symptoms of cough and "downtrodden" the nose. In addition, it saves from the characteristic heat dehydration. A vitamin-C helps the immune system fight off viruses.
5. Money in your wallet at the end of the month clearly increased
We rarely counted in that costs us the habit. Especially harmful. But the same coffee - is not free (unless you do not work in the progressive office). And if you drink 4-5 cups a day, and the amount accumulates considerable. At the same time, a lemon is enough for 3-4 days. So at the end of the month the money saved can be yourself with something to please with a clear conscience. Trifle, but nice also!
