Survey: Water and Lemon in the Morning

It is believed that a glass of water w/ half a lemon (or lime) squeezed into it, first thing in the morning (at least an hour before breakfast) increases the activity of certain detoxification enzymes in the liver.

Do you do it? If yes, where did you hear about it and when did you start? If no, is this the first time you've heard of this or had you hear it but just have never done it?


  1. I drink water with lemon throughout the day. However, I start my day with a shot consisting of 2 Tbsp of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with $ Tbsp of Water. I started this practice to make my body more alkaline but I have noticed that my skin has been very clear over these past several months.

  2. Just water and lemon is good. But for proper liver function, fat emulsification/digestion. I find the whole lemon drink even better There are so many benefits including immune function enhancements, skin health, hormonal balance, cellular health and detoxification.

    Give it a go.

    the only changes I'd make to the recipe now are as follows:

    1) Increase water content to 1.5 cups
    2) Use fish oil or coconut oil and NOT flaxseed oil.

    It's a super tasty drink. Give it a try! :-)
