Also helpful in enhancing liver function, digestion process, and body metabolism. And even if this recipe is tough to be prepared in the morning, best is to go with lemon tea with just a pinch of tea leaves and 1 teaspoon of sugar boiled in water along with a pinch of black salt and ¼ of a lemon squeezed in it after straining in a cup. The tea perfectly balances the pH level in the body and so, lessens the toxins.
