6 Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water
1. Improves Skin Quality
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, and one squeezed lemon provides about 21% of the recommended daily value.
2. Aids in Digestion
Drinking a warm cup of lemon water first thing in the morning activates your digestive system, helps your stomach acids break down food when you do eat, and can act as a gentle laxative.
3. Supports the Immune System
While some contest this, many others say that vitamin C helps boost your immune system.
4. Prevents Kidney Stones
Lemons have high citric acid content which helps prevent the formation of calcium-based kidney stones.
5. Improves the Flavor
A simple way to improve the flavor of plain or bad-tasting water (I always order water with lemon at restaurants).
6. Alkalizes the Body
Many say that although lemon juice is acidic, once metabolized in the body it helps alkalize the body, which helps prevent and fight foreign organisms and even cancer.
