Should you have lemon drink in the morning or before sleep?

Should you have lemon drink in the morning or before sleep?A lot has been said lately about the lemon detox diet. The lemon detox consists in drinking lemon juice mixed with water and either maple syrup with a cayenne pepper, for a week or 10 days. Using lemon detox diet, you’re guaranteed a total cleansing effect. But, for many people it's hard to managed to put up with this extreme regime. So, for those ones, who find the lemon detox diet too hard to follow it's recommended more gentler lemon detox. It consists of drinking the juice of half a lemon, diluted in warm water.

There are two contrary opinions on when to drink warm water with lemon juice. Some people advice to use hot lemon drink in the morning, because morning is the time, when bodies are in a natural cleansing phase, so it is a good time to consume cleansing foods and juices. At the same time, others are going to say that you should drink it every night just before going to bed, because the body cleanses while at rest, so drinking the lemon water at night makes more sense, as it supports our inherent ability to detox.

Anyway, lemon is not only a vitamin C rich citrus fruit and an immune system booster; it also acts as blood purifier and improves the body’s ability to get rid of toxins. When taken regularly it acts as a tonic to the liver and stimulates it to fulfill its daily digestive and cleansing functions. So, it's recommended to be disciplined and regular. There is no completely right answer when is the right time for lemon drink. Try drinking the lemon juice water in the morning for a month and then switch to the second option to understand what alternative is better for you. Maybe you will like it so much that you will have a drink in the morning with breakfast and at night just before sleep.

Hi
I just finished my first Master Cleanse program, Stanley Burroughs Lemonade Diet. I went for 21 days, never having a uncomfortable moment because I researhed as much of the fast before I started because i new it would be good for me and my family. For those that have been there and know now what the body is able to hold on to, congratulations on doing the cleanse. All the chemicals we eat from store bought stoes are killing us, slowly. We'll all die around 80, and the chemical companies know this. They are rich at our expense. They have made millions of dollars adding chemicals to our diet and will die rich, while we will die poor. What a shame that we all can't die without diseases created by pharmacys, perscriptions, additives, preservators, fertilizers. My chioce today is not buy manmade food products, read natural cures by Kevin Trudeau, do regular master cleansers and fight back in this life time by being an example tat "I'm sick and tired of being a guinea pig, and I'm not going to be one anymore"
