4. Detox Your Liver
Lemons naturally contain acidic qualities that help eliminate harmful bacteria and food build up within the digestion tract. Our livers help filter out unwanted organisms in our bodies. Lemon juice helps the liver flush out toxins found in the body, and it’s a natural healer in itself! One way to re-set your system is by adding in some activated charcoal with an optional sweetener such as maple syrup or stevia. The charcoal works in order to trap the toxins in your body, causing the body to eliminate them naturally. Try out this activated charcoal smoothie bowl for a healthy treat!

Lemon water provides clean energy for our bodies, and the zesty zingy flavor helps perk up our appetite and mood! The warmth from the water is very soothing and creates a calmness within the body. The citrus flavor provides the bolt of alertness and focuses for you to take on your day!
