Why it’s so good for you:

There’s a reason why so many of us wake up to a glass of warm lemon water! Lemon juice helps flush out toxins and aids digestion by encouraging the production of bile. It is also a great source of essential nutrients including citric acid, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.

Ginger has been used for over 2,000 years to help support digestion and treat stomach upsets, diarrhea, and nausea. The addition of ginger to this drink helps to soothe the stomach, reduce inflammation and provide a gentle pick-me-up!

Featuring:
James Colquhoun

I heard that drinking lemon juice like this has an acidic effect on the enamel of the teeth and causes decay? So to prevent this -
drink at room temp through a straw

Hi Georgia, yes, you are right. Lemons have acids which can damage teeth, as the enamel found on the surface tends to fade away. Hence, it is advised to consume it diluted and to use a straw so that the acid does not get on the teeth :) ~ Iris

Hi Patricia, simply grate the ginger finely on a chopping board. Then squeeze the ginger pieces in your hand, letting the juice of the ginger drip through your fingers and into the glass of water :) ~ Iris

I do CPTG Essential Oils and I have been using those in my detox. They are extremely powerful so just 2 drops of the ginger and lemon oil has been what i am doing and I feel amazing when I do this everyday!

Is this meant to be hot/warm water? Love the drink, have always struggled with straight lemon, but with ginger & honey = so good 😊
