Here’s my supercharged lemon water for consuming first thing in the morning! And if you’re already drinking your lemon water upon arising, then high five! You’re doing your liver a huge favor and it will reward you with longevity.
The Secret Ingredient
For many years I’ve taken organic sulfur crystals (MSM) dissolved in water to support in oxygenating the body and help ease general aches and pains.
As a fairy gardener, I’ve shoveled a ton of mulch in my day and as a badass, I’ve always appreciated a challenging work out, so if you’re the same and would like some support for your joint and connective tissue health, I find the sulfur crystals magical and help me tremendously with recovery!
And a bonus side effect: MSM is also great for your skin, hair and nails – YES!!
Although MSM has an unappealing sulfur’ish taste to it, um, since it is sulfur, adding it to the lemon water with honey makes it much more palatable!
Visit my Products page to see the 3 pack of MSM crystals I purchase to save money.
Adding an Extra Potent Punch
To amp it up even more, on occasion I may grate 1/2 inch or more of fresh ginger into the water. No need to peel the ginger since when you’re done you’ll simply strain the water into a new glass.
And remember, simply squeezing a lemon in 16 oz of water is a delicious way to start your day, nourish and revitalize your liver from it’s nightly work, hydrate and provide valuable minerals for your body, with or without honey and MSM!
And yes, my kids were coming in and out the backdoor towards the end of this video – hopefully it wasn’t too distracting and you still gained some insight! ?
