10 Reasons To Start Your Day With Lemon Water

Updated: Jan 16


1. Stronger Immune System

Lemons are a rich source of Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps to increase white blood cell production which attack bacteria and viruses.


2. Reduces Inflammation

Outside of the body lemon is acidic, but when metabolized it becomes alkaline. This helps to decrease the acidity in your body and remove uric acid from joints.


3. Reduces Risk of Cardiovascular Disease

According to research, an increased intake of Vitamin C reduces the risk of death due to cardiovascular disease by 70%.


4. Sharper Brain Function

Lemons are high in potassium which stimulates brain and nerve function and increases alertness.


5. Improved Digestion

Lemon juice helps the liver to produce bile, an important chemical needed in digestion.


6. Helps Lose Weight

Lemons are high in pectin fibre which helps to fight hunger cravings. Also, according to research, the polyphenols found in lemon juice reduces body fat accumulation which significantly reduced weight gain.


7. Improved Hydration

Adding lemon juice to water enhances the flavour which encourages you to drink more water.


8. Radiant Skin

Vitamin C helps reduce wrinkles and blemishes by purging toxins from the blood.


9. Boosts Energy Levels

Because lemon juice aids digestion, improves circulation and provides many other valuable nutrients, you will experience more energy.


10. Fresher Breath

The strong antibacterial properties in lemon juice neutralizes odours.


HOW TO MAKE LEMON WATER


To make lemon water, simply squeeze half a lemon in 8oz of tepid water and enjoy. Wait approximately 20 minutes before eating. Be sure to use a straw as the acidic nature of lemons outside of the body can erode the tooth enamel. Take care of yourself and I'll see you in the next one.
