The Ultimate Morning Drink: What Should You Be Drinking First Thing in the Morning?

The best thing you can possibly do first thing in the morning is drinking a glass of warm lemon water! It's an excellent way to get your body going. It's like putting gas in your gas tank. It goes to fuel and lubricate your different internal systems. You want the water to be warm so that it’s not a shock to your system first thing in the morning. Plus, warm water is easier for your body to digest. The lemon will help get your digestive system ready for the coming meals.

You see, lemons contain vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory effects. Antioxidants are compounds that help protect the body’s cells from damage. By reducing cell damage, antioxidants reduce the risk of many health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer. Antioxidants get rid of free radicals, which are harmful, disease-causing compounds in the body.

The antioxidants and flavonoids in citrus fruits can improve heart health and metabolic health markers, including glucose tolerance, insulin sensitivity, and fat metabolism. Vitamin C is also also important for immune system function, wound healing, and helping the body absorb iron from foods.


A lack of water in the body is a common cause of kidney stones. Some studies suggest that drinking lemon water may help treat kidney stones. It is most effective when coupled with conventional therapy. Kidney stones are a buildup of minerals that collect in the kidneys. They're usually made up of calcium oxate and is usually treated by a compound called citrate. An increase in the amount of citrate in the body can prevent kidney stones from being formed. Lemon water contains high amounts of citrate. Drinking more water can help prevent kidney stones.


Drinking plenty of water has benefits for a multitude of things but here are just a few:

  • Weight loss: It can increase feelings of fullness and boost metabolism slightly, which can help with weight loss.

  • Mental health: It can optimize mood and memory.

  • Digestive health: It can help relieve constipation.

  • Exercise performance: It can improve athletic performance.

When you wake up in the morning you’ve just gone without water for about eight hours, so it’s important to turn things around and start up the flow of water again. What you don’t want to do is leave out the water and go along with your day, having breakfast and other beverages before addressing your need for water.
