Lemons are a nutritious fruit packed with vitamin C and a host of antioxidants. Consuming lemon water has ample benefits, including kicking the digestive system into action, fighting off infections, and boosting the immune system.
Health experts say that you could get rid of belly fat by drinking lemon juice for 7 days. You can have this in the morning, on an empty stomach, at least 20 minutes before breakfast.
Aids in Digestion
Drink a cup of lemon water on an empty stomach in the morning to ease bloating, gas, and constipation. Lemon contains minerals that promote healthy digestion, alleviate heartburn, and stimulate healthy bowel function by reducing bloat and stimulating bowel movements.
Promotes Weight Loss
Evidence suggests lemon water may help shed those stubborn pounds. The tart citrus flavor makes lemon water more refreshing and easier to drink than plain water, and this could encourage people to drink more fluids. It also curbs the appetite, hydrates, and helps prevent binges on sugary sweets.
Encourages Liver Detox
Lemon can help remove toxins that, over time, accumulate in the blood and may cause a wide range of health issues. Symptoms of toxin overload include constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, nausea, aches and pains, and even memory loss. Lemon water assists the liver in cleansing the body of these damaging invaders.
Bacteria or lingering food particles can cause bad breath. Lemon water can help alleviate many causes of bad breath by neutralizing the odor from foods like onion and garlic. It also stimulates saliva production, which helps flush the mouth of food and bacteria. A dry mouth can also cause bad breath, so staying hydrated with lemon water can prevent this issue.
Boosts Immune Function
The abundance of vitamin C in lemon provides a powerful immune boost and increases electrolytes to help support the immune system when the body is fighting off infection or illness. Lemons also contain bioflavonoids, which fight free radicals that can cause inflammation and blood vessel damage. Add lemon juice, honey, and ginger root to a cup of hot water for a potent immune-enhancing drink.
