It’s all about lemon juice.
Hey, I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. I simply learned this trick accidentally, so I decided to tell you to do it on purpose. After all, you might be like me and have water spots on your glasses and toxins in your liver. Not to worry – there’s a lemon for that.
Not sure if you have toxins in your liver? (And everybody looked down as if to examine their liver and check for toxins.) I can just about guarantee we can all use a good liver cleanse. We all breathe in toxins when we’re outside or when we’re around chemicals of any kind, and surely we’re ingesting them – even if we are very careful about what we eat.
Oh no!! Our livers are toxic! Relax. Our livers are made to process out toxins. Our world simply gives them a little more than they can handle sometimes. A lemon-liver boost is just what the doctor ordered.
For me, this happened literally. One of my natural doctors suggested that my liver and immune system would benefit from drinking lemon juice in a glass of water each day. It sounded easy enough – plus, I love that this is such a super inexpensive de-tox option. So I started adding lemon juice to a glass of water once or twice each day.
How’s the taste? Well, pucker up. I don’t add sugar (because wouldn’t that just defeat the purpose?) so my lemon juice water is quite tart. Now that I’m used to the taste though, I find it to be rather refreshing and I’ve started to crave it each day.
And then. Then!!!!!! I noticed that when I rinse my glass afterward, all the spots that had been hanging out were wiped away. Just like that. So it would appear that lemon juice cleanses my liver and my drinking glasses at the same time because it’s just so efficient and awesome like that.
Here. I took a picture of two drinking glasses to show you the difference. I considered also putting two livers side by side so we could all see the effectiveness of drinking lemon water but wouldn’t you know it. My camera battery died. Seriously. That’s the only reason I didn’t stage that picture. The only reason.
What have we learned here today?
- Laura has hard water.
- Our livers love lemons.
- Lemon juice beats hard water stains.
So here is my advice to you today (and tomorrow): Add about 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice to a 12 ounce glass of water. Drink it down. Do this once or twice or three times each day. Feel confident about this lovely boost you are giving your liver – helping it to do its job for you more effectively. And then watch as your drinking glasses become more sparkly each time you drink your lemon water.
After all, as they always say, if life gives you lemons – go cleanse your liver. Or your drinking glasses. Or both. At the same time. Rock on.
Ever tried drinking straight lemon water? How do you like it?!
