Fad diets and health fads come and go but one that has stood the test of time is the benefits of drinking lemon water. For many years proponents of drinking fresh lemon juice with pure, warm water have claimed that those taking regular doses of this mixture enjoy some amazing health benefits.
Lemons are filled to the brim with Vitamins. C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. (Fun fact: they contain more potassium than apples or grapes!). So a regular glass of water with lemon juice helps to keep the bodies vitamin C levels topped up – which is great news for those who suffer during cold and flu season. Secondly warm lemon water is said to aid in digestion – making it the perfect drink to accompany morning cereal.
Just remember that lemon juice can be hard on the enamel of your teeth so it’s important to dilute it with water of any temperature. Drink it first thing in the morning, and wait 15 to 30 minutes to have breakfast to receive full benefits.
Lemons are also very detoxifying. They help digestion system to eliminate toxins from the body thanks to pectin fiber. Aside from aiding in digestion a warm lemon juice and water drink can also help reduce inflammation of joints which makes it a favorite with those who may suffer from arthritis or similar conditions.
Those who enjoy the drink also claim that it has almost miraculous effects on the skin – keeping it elastic and helping to maintain a youthful appearance free of blemishes. It also helps maintain the health of the eyes and can assist in fighting eye problems.
The ideal mixture should use one teaspoon of fresh lemon juice in a medium sized glass
