Homemade Health Tonic Costs PENNIES!
There’s no shortage of so-called health tonics out there.
What IS hard to find is one doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. And even MORE importantly, actually delivers on its many promises.
Today, I’ll share a potent health elixir you can make at home for pennies.
It’s incredibly hydrating. Which is a fantastic start. But the benefits go way beyond that.
This tonic can improve digestion, boost immunity, and protect brain power.
And you’ll likely laugh when I reveal what this powerful elixir is…
I find lemon water to be extra refreshing… but it’s SO much more than that.
To start with, water alone is life. Literally. We’re made up MOSTLY of water.
- boosts energy levels,
- supports brain function,
- promotes good digestion,
- lubricates joints,
- prevents kidney damage,
- delivers oxygen throughout the body,
- supports youthful skin and
- helps maintain blood pressure.
You get the picture. You LITERALLY can’t survive without it.
But simply tossing some sliced lemons in SUPERCHARGES your water in several critical ways…
- The citric acid in lemons AMPLIFIES the digestive benefits of the water by promoting the production of digestive juices. And in one study, drinking lemon juice increased gastric emptying by 1.5 times over water alone.
- Plus, lemon in water BOOSTS water’s brain benefits. In fact, the flavonoids in lemon peels are so powerful that they can improve cognitive deficits in people with Alzheimer’s.
- Lemon water is loaded with vitamin C, which SUPPORTS your immune system.
Lemon water isn’t a cure-all, of course. But it IS an easy and inexpensive way to supplement your overall health and longevity plan.
To make lemon water, slice up a (preferably organic) lemon. Drop the slices into a pitcher of water and let it steep in the refrigerator for a few hours.
For a stronger lemon taste, give the slices a little squeeze. And for the MOST powerful punch of flavor AND benefits, save the peel and zest a bit into your glass right before drinking.
P.S. This “healthy” drink is killing seniors (SCARY!).
