Why not distilled water? I always thought it was better than spring water.
Something else you can do is use lemon essential oil (make sure it is labeled for human consumption) instead of lemon juice. Lemon oil is cold-pressed from the aromatic rinds of lemons, not the fruit. It is pH neutral as it does not contain citric acid and is safe for the teeth enamel. As well, it is more potent than lemon juice; it takes 3,000 lemon rinds to produce 1 kg of lemon essential oil. The oil is absorbed into the liver easier than the juice, making for a better detox regimen.
Lemon essential oil will help increase your energy level and mental clarity so try adding a drop to your bottle of water before you go to the gym and it will give you a lot more energy (don’t add it to a plastic bottle as the oil will degrade the plastic). Lemon oil is also great if you ever deal with heartburn, acne, urinary tract infections, gallstones, kidney stones, or respiratory issues.
The Secret Ingredient in Lemon Essential Oil
The lemon essential oil contains 68% d-limonene (which is not present in the juice). Limonene is a widely distributed, natural, non-toxic compound found in citrus fruits, spices, herbs, and some conifer essential oils. It is a powerful antioxidant believed to boost the body’s natural defenses. It has been shown to activate enzymes in the liver that are part of the detoxification processes which take toxic compounds present in the liver and convert them to non-harmful or less harmful versions. These “toxins” can range from caffeine to ibuprofen.
D-limonene is also being studied for its properties in relationship to cancer cells. Limonene has been proven in humans and in animals to have chemopreventative and chemotherapeutic benefits, causing no toxicity to humans—even at huge doses. It has been found in numerous animal and human studies to help stop cancer in its three stages: initiation, promotion /progression, and metastasis. Not only does limonene stop cancer growth from starting and prevent existing cancer growth from spreading but it has also been shown in animals to regress existing tumors.
