I make sure to drink 8 ounces of water every morning before I eat anything to give my body a chance wake up and start the detoxifying process. I feel like I am starting my day off hydrated and my organs get a chance to wake up – sometimes I drink more…. But what if I added a shot of olive oil and lemon?
According to Step for Health, taking 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil and Lemon every morning when you wake up helps your body in many ways!
I’ve talked about the health benefits of Olive Oil; it’s an anti-inflammatory, an antioxidant and it’s a healthy fat – monounsaturated. So, taking a tablespoon every morning – on an empty stomach and wait 30 minutes before eating – is another way to give yourself a dose of healthy goodness!
Here is a short summary of the olive oil/lemon juice benefit – you can read more here
- acts as lubrication for the digestive mucous and activates the gallbladder and liver
- protects the heart with anti-inflammatory properties and healthy fatty acids
- may help with joint pain if taken consistently
- detox your body and help you feel more refreshed in the morning.
Every person is different and wouldn’t it be great if you added this routine and it made a difference in how you feel? I want to find out!
I always try to eat as much Olive Oil as I can during the day but taking a tablespoon in the morning would get me a head start.
If you try this, let me know how you feel. I am going to start to do this, I know my body will love it.
Here’s to a healthy life!
Ciao for now,
