REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD DRINK LEMON WATER

.Lemon water Boosts your immune system
Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is great for fighting colds.  They’re high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function. Potassium also helps control blood pressure.

 Balances pH

Drink lemon water everyday and you’ll reduce your body’s overall acidity. Lemon is one of the most alkaline foods around. Yes, lemon has citric acid but it does not create acidity in the body once metabolized.

 Helps with weight loss

Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet  lose weight faster.

 Lemon water aids digestion

Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials. It encourages the liver to produce bile which is an acid that required for digestion. Efficient digestion reduces heartburn and constipation.

 Is a diuretic

Lemons increase the rate of urination in the body, which helps purify it. Toxins are, therefore, released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.

 Clears skin

The vitamin C component helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps keep skin clear as well. It can actually be applied directly to scars to help reduce their appearance.

 Freshens breath

Not only this, but it can help relieve tooth pain and gingivitis. The citric acid can erode tooth enamel, so you should monitor this. I admit, I’m slightly worried about it.

 Relieves respiratory problems

Warm lemon water helps get rid of chest infections and halt those pesky coughs. It’s thought to be helpful to people with asthma and allergies too.

 Keeps you Zen

Vitamin C is one of the first things depleted when you subject your mind and body to stress. As mentioned previously, lemons are chock full of vitamin c
Tip:  Drink your warm lemon water in coffee cups that has coffee or tea stains.  The lemon water will help remove them.
Tip:  Grind the used lemon rinds in your garbage disposal to help deodorize it.Try and make drinking lemon water a health habit and get all the benefits that follow it.and don't forget GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINUOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT.
