Lemon water

img_8729Lemon water is a simple yet, powerful drink. Sipping warm lemon water helps your body with digestion and hydration.

Interested in kicking up this simple drink’s health benefits up a notch? Add some freshly grated ginger for a little bit of a kick and some additional health benefits. Ginger helps act as an anti-inflammatory, and can help ease bloating. Ginger is relatively inexpensive for a decent sized piece. Buy a hunk the next time you are at the grocery store, and keep it in the freezer for longer shelf-life.

Feeling a little under the weather? Take this drink a step further and add a dash or two of cayenne pepper and honey. The cayenne pepper and ginger help toxins out of the body, and in turn will help keep colds to a minimum or at bay. Honey also has a slew of health benefits when used in a regular diet. Honey has the ability to reduce risk of some cancers, heart disease, and ulcers. It also acts as an anti-bacterial,  and can help reduce sore throats and coughs. If you use local honey, you can also help minimize seasonal allergy symptoms.
