Looking for a simple and easy way to kickstart your immune system along with giving your body a boost of energy? Having trouble with joint pain or inflammation? Are you searching for a more natural and safe way to lose weight? Then drinking lemon water on a daily basis can possibly help along with some other healthy benefits. Forget about lemonade, when it comes to your health lemon water is better. A fresh squeezed lemon with its juice put in water will provide an abundant amount of nutrients which includes vitamins C and B-complex. Just like bananas, lemons contain an excellent source of potassium. Lemons also have a good amount of iron, magnesium and calcium in them. That’s all fine and good but how does that benefit your health and well-being? I’m about to give some interesting facts on how that’s possible.
Lemon juice flushes toxins out of your body which aids in cleansing your system. Flushing toxins in the body’s digestive tract will aid in digestion keeping the digestive tract healthy. Lemon juice is also good for the health of the heart because of the lemon’s high level of potassium. The flushing of the toxins in the digestive tract from the lemon juice will help to relieve symptoms of indigestion. Keeping your body free of toxins will most likely guarantee a healthy functioning liver. Besides stimulating the liver, drinking lemon juice in water will energize your body. Uric acid which is located in the joints is one of the main culprits of joint pain and inflammation. Drinking lemon water will most likely decrease and remove the uric acid in your joints if consumed on a regular basis. The amount of vitamin C in lemons and its high level of acidity slows the digestion of carbohydrates which results in keeping you feel fuller for a longer period of time which means that consuming lemon juice in water is a safe and natural way to control the appetite. If you can control your appetite in this manner, you will most likely be able to lose weight.
Some individuals and experts will recommend that you drink lemon water first thing in the morning prior to eating your first meal (breakfast) but due to the fact that everybody is not on the same schedule, it can be consumed at anytime of the day as long as you drink it and wait at least 20 to 30 minutes prior to your next meal in order to receive the full benefits of the lemon water. Never add sugar or sweeteners to the lemon juice before drinking it because the sugar combined with the lemon juice’s acidity can wear down on the enamel of your teeth. Always dilute the lemon juice with water. Your teeth will be fine as long as you remember to dilute the lemon juice but you can also use a straw to drink it if you’re highly concerned about your tooth enamel being affected by the lemon juice’s acidity. Everyone might not desire to drink it this way because of its sour and tangy taste but sometimes a sour taste in your mouth can be good when it comes to the benefit of your health.
