One woman named Crystal Davis from the USA made a decision to consume hot water with lemon and honey each morning on an empty stomach for a whole year as she wanted to know what will happen to her body.
She used to purchase honey and lemon drinks in the pharmacies when she had a flu. It helped her a lot, but she was very skeptical when she took this challenge. It tasted really different to drink real lemon juice. It has been much healthier and better, than the powder form bought in the pharmacies. Crystal was wondering if hot water with lemon and honey can do miracles to her body as everyone claimed.
Now she is very happy as she haven’t had a cold for a whole year, nor stomach flu, or any other diseases, even though she sometimes feels like catching something, but it never happens. She even started taking this drink with her everywhere, even when she travelled. She didn’t even need coffee in the morning as this drink provided her with energy and made her feel happier in the morning. It took her an hour after waking up to see again, before. People even started telling Crystal that she is much more comfortable to be around.
