Warm water on its own is very soothing to your system, but adding a squeeze of lemon can help flush out toxins from your body due to the pectin they contain. Helping with constipation and diarrhea – woo-hoo!

This concoction can help sooth colds and flus, especially if you add a bit of honey too.

Adding grated or sliced ginger to your lemon water can really help as an anti inflammatory. It’s said to help with arthritis induced problems, including minor aches and pains. This wonderful root also helps with a whole lot of stomach issues as it soothes the tummy, making you feel happier from the inside out.
