Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water

Adding lemon to water not only quenches thirst better than any other beverage, but it also nourishes our body with vitamins, minerals and trace elements which we absolutely need. Lemon with water can be considered the best natural energy booster. When we wake up in the morning, our bodily tissues are dehydrated and are in need of water to push out toxins and rejuvenate the cells. In other words, this homemade “lemonade” helps eliminate internal toxins, regulating proper kidney and digestive tract functions by forcing them to work as smoothly as possible.

Here is a list of the Health Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water:

  • Lemon is a rich source of vitamin C, an essential nutrient that protects the bodies immune system

It is so healthy to have a glass of warm water and lemon juice right in the very start of your day.  It’s best to use purified or spring water.  Lemons have so many healing effects as well as cleansing the body. Take it from me, and my last dentist appointment it is very important that you know not to let the lemon juice come in direct contact with your teeth, it can ruin the enamel.  I highly suggest always diluting lemon, and rince after drinking.  Enjoy!
