Top 8 Reasons To Use Lemon Water + Salt


I’m the Senior Nutritionist at Optimal Health & Wellness and I’m thrilled to be meeting you.

Today I want to give you my Top 8 Reasons why lemon water + salt can be such an important (but simple) part of your daily routine.

Your health and energy levels for the day largely depend on what you eat in the morning. A glass of warm lemon water with salt can serve as your morning routine trigger – while also giving you a healthy, energetic and refreshing leg up on your day.

Recipe: 1 half a lemon squeezed into 16 ounces of room temperature (or warm) purified water. Never use tap, and never use cold water. (Cold water actually slows digestion).Add a ¼ teaspoon of unrefined, untreated sea salt and stir until dissolved.

(Our personal favorite is Pink Himalayan salt which you can get from Amazon for about $10 here )

Health Benefits of this delicious and easy to make drink...

1. Revitalizes and Improves Your Mood by Reducing Anxiety and Depression

After waking in the morning, cortisol typically spikes by about 50% in the body.

Cortisol can be detrimental to almost all of the body’s processes and can have serious consequences such as heart disease, obesity, depression, and interference with cognitive abilities such as memory and learning.

Salt is known to reduce cortisol and adrenaline, two dangerous stress hormones.

Additionally; the Vitamin C in lemon is a natural stress reducer.

2. Aids Digestion:

Daily consumption treats indigestion issues like bloating, belching, heartburn, etc.

It treats constipation by helping in waste elimination.

Many digestive disorders take place because of poor pH level. Lemon water helps restore pH level and aids digestion.

3. Strengthens Immune System:

It has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties which fight harmful bacteria, fungus, and viruses that cause diseases and infections.

Its antioxidant property also help eliminate toxins from the body.

4. Improves Oral Health:

Its anti-bacterial property eliminates mouth bacteria which is responsible for causing bad breath.

It soothes toothaches and many oral diseases like gingivitis.

It also helps in teeth whitening as lemon is a natural bleaching agent.

5. Promotes Urine Production (Natural Diuretic):

It prevents urinary tract infections. Being a natural diuretic, it increases urination and hence, eliminates bacteria which causes urinary tract infections. It is effective in the prevention and treatment of kidney stones as it contains citric acid, which naturally breaks down kidney stones.

6. Maintains pH Balance:

It is an effective way to restore your body’s pH levels. A pH level above 7.0 is alkaline and below 7.0 is acidic. Lemon is acidic, but when it goes inside our body, it turns alkaline and salt is alkaline in nature. Your body should be more alkaline than acidic. Maintenance of pH balance is important as poor pH balance can cause health issues like digestive problems, skin diseases, osteoporosis, arthritis etc. Proper pH balance helps in nutrient absorption, digestion, toxin elimination, etc.

7. Improves Mineral Absorption:

Our body needs minerals for overall health. It cannot produce these minerals on its own so these have to be supplied to our body through food or supplements. Proper absorption of minerals is necessary for performing important functions like maintenance of pH balance and healthy nervous system, acting as a co-factor for enzyme reactions, formation of bones and teeth, metabolic stimulation etc. Lemon water with salt helps your body to more readily absorb these vital minerals and nutrients.

8. Great Detoxifier:

It helps cleanse your system by removing unwanted toxins that otherwise accumulate in your body. The result is visible in the form of reduced weight, glowing skin and better digestion.

Wishing you good health through wise nutrition,

2 Little-Known “Simple Secrets” to Achieving
Thick Hair, Strong Nails and Beautiful Skin.

Hey there. I’m Jennifer, Senior Researcher here at Optimal Health, and I agree with you. Brittle nails, thin fragile hair and unhealthy-looking skin are bad enough on their own. But when they combine to make you look older than your age (both to yourself and others)... well, that can feel horribleespecially when you’ve tried to turn it all around and nothing’s worked!

So I’m really excited that you’ve stopped by today, because I’d like to clear up a big misconception about beauty—and show you that beautiful hair, stronger nails and radiant skin can easily be yours again.

Most people believe that having gorgeous hair, nails and skin is purely a result of genetics (“she must be descended from fashion models”) or lifestyle choices (“she must never go out in the sun”), but here’s the truth:

While genetics and lifestyle influence the look and quality of your hair, skin and nails on a general level, the root causes of your struggle against lifeless skin, thinning hair and brittle nails on a day-to-day basis come down to 2 little-known factors that your dermatologist or cosmetologist might not even know about:

  1. You must maintain healthy keratin levels
  2. You must maintain a healthy balance of essential nutrients in your body

Seems almost shockingly simple, doesn't it? Well here’s something even more shocking! In the next few minutes, I’m going to show you how a natural ingredient has been shown to effectively STOP these factors dead in their tracks—and even REVERSE their effects—so your hair becomes fuller and shinier, your nails become stronger and your skin once again glows.

But before I get to that, let’s take a closer look at the 2 factors and what must happen to stop hair loss, brittle nails and bad skin:

#1 - You Must Maintain Healthy Keratin Levels

Keratin is the protein that makes up the outer layer of human skin, as well as the key structural component of hair and nails. Along with proteins collagen and elastin, keratin gives skin, nails and hair their strength and resilience, and draws nutrients from the underlying tissue called the dermis.

If the dermis lacks nutrients, keratin levels drop and the outward signs of aging begin. Hair and nails become brittle, and skin turns blotchy and dull. So it would seem to be a simple enough matter of just eating the right nutritional foods—but that’s where the next part comes in.

#2 - You Must Maintain a Healthy Balance of Essential Nutrients in Your Body

When it comes to maintaining a healthy balance of vitamins and minerals in the body, most people believe that just eating a “balanced diet” is all that’s needed for overall health and vitality, including radiant skin, lustrous hair and strong nails.

But here's the thing.

While our bodies are designed to extract and absorb nutrients when they’re delivered in a natural state through fruits, vegetables and protein, few of us have the time—and budget—to consistently shop for good-quality, nutritionally rich foods and prepare them every day unfailingly in the right combinations that support a “balanced diet.”

Think about what you ate last week. Was it organic and nutrient-rich? Was it full of whole grains and foods rich in fatty acids? Did you eat enough protein? Did you eat enough veggies and fruit? Do you know whether you had enough of one vitamin or another? Did someone at the office have a birthday and insist you have a piece of cake—and blow the whole balance?

Now, think about your schedule. Did you make enough time last week to prepare every meal yourself so you knew exactly what was going into each one? Did you grab takeout or a microwave meal and just trust it would be as healthy as advertised? Did you miss your alarm and grab a donut while rushing to work?

Add in the everyday toxins of our environment, food additives, preservatives and health-affecting physiological factors like stress and the idea of the “balanced diet” tends to be exactly that. It’s a great idea. It’s even achievable once in a while, but the larger reality on a daily basis is that most of us are vitamin-deficient nearly all the time…

…and we won’t know that our bodies are vitamin-deficient until we start to see outward signs.

Our bodies are incredible survival machines and will do anything and everything to live longer. That’s our biological prime directive, meaning your body doesn’t care whether you have luxurious hair, radiant skin or great nails. When nutrients are low, your body will take the nutrients needed to enrich the dermis and use them for vital functions like your heart health, digestive tract and nervous system...

...and your hair, nails and skin pay the price!

Your skin becomes dull and blotchy. Your hair becomes brittle and lifeless, and begins to fall out, and your nails break. Over time, nutrient deficiency becomes a roller coaster, and deeper issues set in.

Your energy drops. You feel depressed and anxious. You begin to approach the mirror with dread, and you feel awkward, self-conscious and embarrassed in social situations. It all keeps snowballing, year after year, until your overall health begins to break down...

…and you find yourself realizing the big ugly problem:

It’s always going to be an imperfect, uphill struggle to live a nutritionally perfect life, and unless you can “short-circuit” your body’s “survival programming,” your body will continue to rob itself of nutrients and you’ll never have the hair, skin and nails that you want and deserve.

So what if you COULD stop this process?

What if you could maintain the right level of the right vitamin to counteract nutritional imbalance and maintain healthy keratin proteins to turn back the clock on your skin, hair and nails?

If you could do that, you could essentially keep your body in a more vitamin-sufficient state—24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Can you just imagine how much more beautiful you’d look—and feel—if nutritional deficiency was no longer robbing you of thick hair, strong nails and radiant skin?

Well, there is a way to fix this vitamin deficiency, promote lustrous hair, grow stronger nails and return to glowing, youthful skin.

The solution works on a deep, cellular level, but it also works on the surface. So the results are immediately visible—and long-term.


Great—because this is only just the beginning!

The solution you’re about to discover only takes one minute or less to implement. So there’s absolutely NO REASON why you have to be a victim of a vitamin deficiency that so many needlessly suffer through.

Introducing the “Beauty Nutrient”... Biotin

Part of the B complex group of vitamins, Biotin has been proven to improve the beauty, strength and vitality of your hair, skin and nails by delivering beauty-specific nutrients that rid your body of the vitamin deficiencies that damage your appearance.

Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled research on Biotin deficiency, published by the Albon Skin Institute Research Center along with the University of California, demonstrated the significant effect Biotin can have regarding hair loss and skin health when compared to a placebo group.

These results were pooled together with results from a separate study showing that Biotin also had a great impact as treatment for diabetes, and all findings were published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

Specifically, after 90 days of supplementing with Biotin twice per day, test subjects in the Biotin group significantly increased hair growth by 65% on average, compared to the placebo group. They also noted overall hair volume, scalp coverage and thickness of hair.

These results demonstrated significant reduction of hair loss and improved hair growth, as well as an increase in hair quality in just 90 days.

After 180 days, participants reported additional growth along with hair shine, skin moisture retention and skin smoothness.

These results were not accomplished by every brand of the supplement, but rather only when a quality-source Biotin supplement was taken.

The Secrets Behind the Power of Biotin...

The effects of Biotin work via two separate pathways:

  • First, Biotin builds healthy proteins in the body by metabolizing carbohydrates, amino acids and fats.
  • Second, by helping build healthy keratin proteins, Biotin continually builds and supports lustrous hair, youthful skin and stronger nails.

And here’s where the “feel better” bonus part comes in. Because Biotin plays a critical role in helping your body metabolize food faster, you also feel more energized and energetic, and you exude that youthful glow again.

Now, think about this ingredient in light of the 2 factors mentioned earlier.

By naturally boosting vitamin levels and metabolism for healthy keratin proteins, you’re unlikely to continue seeing handfuls of hair in the shower drain. Broken and brittle nails will be things of the past, and so will blotchy, dull skin.

You’ll continue to look better and feel better day after day, and the whole transformation happens amazingly fast!

Now, you could go out and do your own research to find a top-quality provider of Biotin supplements. You could spend your money and time purchasing supplements from various suppliers. You could sort through stacks of studies to determine the most effective dose and to ensure that the other supplements deliver the optimal levels as per the studies. You can spend weeks or months and hundreds (if not thousands!) of dollars doing all that — all of which wastes time, energy & money and delays your progress!
