Har börjat med en ny god vana

Jag har läst att det är sjukt bra att dricka ett glas vatten med färsk citron i så jag har anammat denna trend och kör nu varje dag med det. Läs de 12 anledningarna som fick mig att börja:

1. Boosts your immune system

Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is great for fighting colds. They’re high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function. Potassium also helps control blood pressure.

2. Hydrates the lymph system

This cup of goodness helps start the day on a hydrated note, which helps prevent dehydration (obviously) and adrenal fatigue. When your body is dehydrated, or deeply dehydrated (adrenal fatigue) it can’t perform all of it’s proper functions, which leads to toxic buildup, stress, constipation, and the list goes on. Your adrenals happen to be two small glands that sit on top of your kidneys, and along with your thyroid, create energy. They also secrete important hormones, including aldosterone. Aldosterone is a hormone secreted by your adrenals that regulates water levels and the concentration of minerals, like sodium, in your body, helping you stay hydrated. Your adrenals are also responsible for regulating your stress response. So, the bottom line is that you really don’t want to mess with a deep state of dehydration(2)!

3. Enhances Mood

Lemon energizes you and it enhances your mood. The energy a human receives from food comes from the atoms and molecules in your food. A reaction occurs when the positive charged ions from food enter the digestive tract and interact with the negative charged enzymes.

Lemon is one of the few foods that contain more negative charged ions, providing your body with more energy when it enters the digestive tract. The scent of lemon also has mood enhancing and energizing properties. The smell of lemon juice can brighten your mood and help clear your mind. Lemon can also help reduce anxiety and depression.

4. Detoxes the Liver

According to NaturalNews.com, the citric acid in lemons helps maximize enzyme function, which stimulates the liver and aids in detoxification.

5. Aids in Digestion

Not only will this killer combination relive indigestion, it will also help flush you out. It encourages the liver to produce bile which is an acid that required for digestion. Efficient digestion reduces heartburn and constipation.

6. Balances pH

Drink lemon water every day and you’ll reduce your body’s overall acidity. Lemon is one of the most alkaline foods around. Yes, lemon has citric acid but it does not create acidity in the body once metabolized.

7. Helps with weight loss

Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet (see #6) lose weight faster.

8. Acts as a gentle, Natural Diuretic

Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials because lemons increase the rate of urination in the body. Toxins are, therefore, released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.

9. Clears skin

The vitamin C component helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps keep skin clear as well. It can actually be applied directly to scars to help reduce their appearance.

10. Freshens breath

Not only this, but it can help relieve tooth pain and gingivitis. The citric acid can erode tooth enamel, so you should monitor this. I admit, I’m slightly worried about it.

Alright I know I said 10 but lemons are so incredible I had to share 2 more reasons to start your day with warm lemon water!

11. Stress Relief

Vitamin C is one of the first things depleted when you subject your mind and body to stress. As mentioned previously, lemons are chock full of vitamin C.

12. Whole Body Health

Lemons and limes are high in potassium. Potassium is an important mineral that works with sodium for smooth electrical transmission in the brain and nervous system. Depression, anxiety, fogginess, and forgetfulness can often be traced to low potassium blood levels. That same nervous system needs potassium to assure steady signals to the heart. So your heart health is improved from the lemon water’s potassium(3).

* Don’t use bottled lemon juice as it can contain sulphites which a lot of people are allergic to and well, are just plain unhealthy.

Fortsätter i dålig sits

Hej på er. Jag är så irriterad på mig själv! Har inte riktigt kommit på fötter ekonomiskt sätt och jag var tvungen att höja summan på bankkontot så att säga. Julklappar till vänster och julmat till höger, kontot tryter! Pratade med en kompis som har samma problem men hon löser det genom att söka jobb så hon får en extrainkomst. Nåväl, det vill inte jag göra. Jag har sagt det förr och jag säger det igen – jag älskar mitt jobb!

Jag har fastnat på en låt, Eminems och Rihannas låt The monster, jag spelar den på repeat hela hela tiden! Den är så vansinnigt bra!

Sweeeeettttt

Glad lucia hörrni! Jag ska spendera denna fredag den 13, lucia, på en fin restaurang med ett par fina vänner till mig. Det ska bli jättemysigt!

Men jag läste nyss en glad nyhet till alla flygresenärer! SAS plockar bort förbudet mot helt avstängda telefoner och surfplattor vid start och landning. Flightmode måste fortfarande vara på men telefonen går att använda. Det är så skööönt! Jag har alltid tyckt det har vart dumt att ha den avstängd så om jag ska vara ärlig har jag den alltid på flightmode, jag har aldrig haft den avstängd. Och det säger jag med gott samvete nu när förbudet plockas bort!
