Lemon maple cayenne water is considered as a drink that cleanses the body. This is an instant way to reduce weight by following a near-starvation diet plan. This technique involves drinking of a cocktail of fresh lemon juice, maple syrup, purified water and cayenne pepper. Usually, the duration of this diet plan is 10 to 30 days. However, it can be reduced or extended keeping in mind your physical condition.
Recent studies show that the lemon juice and cayenne pepper both have anti-fungal, detoxification and immune boosting characteristics and that is why this drink helps to digest food, destroy bacteria and clean the internal system.
Moreover, lemon and pepper control blood sugar, improves circulation of blood and increase metabolism. The combination of these two natural elements along with water makes a very effective cleansing drink.
However, you must keep in sight the other side of the picture. There is also a school of thought which believes that this drink carries many side effects so one cannot have it in the diet plan. It can cause vomiting, dizziness, and the deficiency of nutritious elements in the body.
Moreover, it can increase joint-pain, headache and fatigue as you won’t be taking a regular diet. That is why it’s necessary to consult a nutritionist before incorporating this cleansing drink in your diet plan.
You can also reduce the danger of side effects by using organic lemons as the basic purpose of this drink is to remove toxic substances from your body so you cannot afford pesticides. Similarly, you should use Grade B organic maple syrup and filtered water. You must use very small amount of cayenne pepper in the beginning as your stomach won’t be ready to handle it immediately.
