7 Benefits of Lemon Water

| June 24, 2019 | 16 Comments

Lemon is so common, but yet so important for our health. The benefits of lemon can never be over emphasized. I was first introduced to lemon water when I found out about a diet called “Keto”. I also decided to read up on it, as you see lemon water is highly known for its usefulness in weight loss, but so many people do not know that it plays so many other more important roles in the body some of which have been listed below.

7 BENEFITS OF LEMON WATER

1.ENERGY BOOSTING

When you consume lemon water, the scent helps relieve anxiety and depression through the calming effect it has in your nerves. Additionally, when its juice gets into your digestive tract, it provides your body with energy.

2. JOINT PAIN REDUCTION

Joint and knee pains are quite common these days due to the daily increase in health issues in the society. Lemon water can help in reducing pain and inflammation in the joints by dissolving uric acid in the affected area.

3. PREVENTS THE GROWTH OF BACTERIA AND VIRAL INFECTIONS

A pathogenic bacterium causes infection and diseases. Lemon water boosts your immune system, as it is a major way to fight against viral infection and protect your body from the multiplication of these bacteria.

4. SPEEDS UP DIGESTION AND METABOLISM

Consumption of warm lemon water first thing in the morning daily flushes out toxins, speeds up digestion thereby increases the rate of metabolism and helps the body in the production of bile.

5. STRENGHTENS THE LIVER

Warm lemon water flushes out toxins by enhancing the functions of enzymes when they are diluted. It provides energy and strengthens the liver, but the best part is that it keeps your liver stimulated.

6. SMOOTH BOWEL FUNCTIONS

Constipation and diarrhea are often caused by the clustering of waste products in our body; lemon water prevents this by helping the process of the elimination of these waste products and enhancing bowel movement.

7. PREVENTION OF WRINKLES AND ACNE

Lemon water contains antioxidants that helps in decreasing and preventing wrinkles, acne, blemishes, and reduces the appearance of scars when applied to the affected spots. Because of its detoxification effects, consumption of lemon water leaves your skin radiant and glowing.

    Wow! Some benefits I had not been aware of – very much something I should incorporate into my daily life. I am not great at drinking enough water as it is – so the added flavor and health benefits may help!
