A glass of lemon water in the morning is the best hydration drink that helps to keep the body hydrated as it provides the necessary electrolytes. It starts your day off right, giving you the liquid your body craves after a night’s sleep.
Bad breath or mouth odour is primarily caused by bacteria, either in the mouth, throat, or digestive tract. Just brushing your teeth isn’t going to be enough to address the problem.
Tulsi and lemon are excellent mouth fresheners and oral disinfectant which prevent mouth odour. Their freshness lasts for a very long time. Mint Tulsi destroys more than 99% of the germs in the mouth and this effect can last all day.
The healthier digestive function is a must to ensure an energetic day. Drinking warm Lemon water when you wake up may help get your digestive system moving, prevent constipation and also have a positive impact on liver functions.
Lowers stress levels
Tulsi has positive mental benefits in addition to physical. Vitamin-C and other antioxidants in Tulsi, apart from repairing damages done by free radicals, also reduce the stress caused by these oxidants. They lower blood pressure, soothe the nerves, reduce inflammation and thus help in stress management.
Reduce uric acid levels
Tulsi is a great detoxifier and diuretic and helps to reduce the uric acid levels in the blood which causes gout, back pain, nausea, and vomiting.
How to prepare
Take a glass of warm water(30-40 degrees) and add 3-4 mint Tulsi leaves. Keep it idle for 5 minutes for the mint taste from the leaves to be mixed with the water. Squeeze half a lemon’s worth of juice into it. Optionally add a teaspoon of honey or stevia to it. Drink it first thing in the morning, and wait 30 minutes to have breakfast. This will help you fully gain the benefits of Lemon water and Tulsi, which are listed above.
