5 Teas for balance, purification and feeling good
Warm lemon water
Although lemon is quite acidic, it is a miraculous detox nutrient that leads to cleansing when ingested. A dose of lemon juice in the morning cleans the digestive system and kidneys, almost like giving them a good wash, without being absorbed by the intestines. This juice, which initiates digestive movement, simultaneously increases the absorption power in the intestines, called peristalsis, creates intestinal contractions and thus helps keep you regular.
Recipe: Every morning, fill two-thirds of a large glass with room-temperature water and the rest of it with boiling water. Squeeze half of a lemon into it and add a teaspoon of honey. Adding this mixture to your morning routine will not only be refreshing but also give you more energy and help balance your system.
