Crystal Davis is young woman from United States who decided to drink combination of hot water, lemon and honey, every morning after she wake up in the morning, on an empty stomach. She consumed this beverage in period of 1 year. She had intention to see what changes will appear at her body.
One year later of this experiment she explained that she was positively shocked. Below you can read her confession:
“Until a few years ago I used to buy these lemon and honey drinks in the pharmacies when I had the flu. Of course, they helped me a lot, but I must admit that I was a bit skeptical when I took this challenge. However, it is quite different to drink real lemon juice. It is so much better and healthier than the powdered one you buy in the pharmacies.
Back on the subject, I decided to drink hot water with lemon and honey for 12 months, every morning on an empty stomach. I was wondering if this drink can do miracles to my body as everyone claimed.
And now I can say that I am very happy. I haven’t had a cold for a whole year. Also I haven’t had a stomach flu or any other disease, even though I sometimes felt as if I would catch something, but it did not happen. In fact, I was so amazed with this drink that I started taking it everywhere with me, even when I traveled somewhere.
Also, I have become a morning person and have no need for coffee. I have more energy and feel happier in the morning, which was not the case. Before it took me an hour after waking up to actually see again. People around me say that I am now much more comfortable to be around.
I generally use half a fresh lemon and a teaspoon of organic honey in a classic cup. To prepare this potion, first you need to boil the water, and leave it to cool a bit, so that the honey can dissolve. Now pour the lemon juice and drink this drink immediately after waking up. Note that sometimes the lemon juice can be more or less acidic, therefore if the lemon is too sour feel free to add some extra honey to this drink to improve the taste. Also, if half a lemon is too much for you, then in the beginning you can use quarter of a lemon, until you get used to”.
Some of the benefits of drinking this tea in the morning are:
Protects against infections
By drinking this remarkable combination right after you wake up in the morning, it will stimulate your digestive system and moisturize the colon, or in other words, you will have no problem with constipation. Additionally, this potion also acts as a diuretic and will cleanse the urinary system and protect your body from infections.
Lemon will help the liver in producing more bile, and on that way your body more easily will break down complex food and extract all the useful ingredients. Thanks to the antibacterial properties of honey, it will protect you of any infections. In same time, this mixture will help the production of mucus in the stomach and thus will flush out the toxins from your body.
Your skin will be shinier and healthier
Lemon is extremely beneficial for your skin, and in same time helps the blood cleanse. Moreover, it will stimulate the production of new blood cells. The combination of water and honey has antibacterial effect and in same time stimulates the production of collagen. This mixture will rejuvenate your skin, as well.
