How and When to Drink Water with Lemon:
For this purpose, use warm purified or spring water. Take half a Cup of warm water without sugar and squeeze in there at least half of lemon or lime. Better to use a special juicer (to get the most juice with minimal effort). You can also use lemon essential oil.
You need to drink water with lemon first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Some recommend a drink of water one hour before meals for maximum results.
Health Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water:
1. Cleanse the Liver, Kidneys, and Blood:
Drinking a glass of lemon water in the morning can help flush toxins from the body by improving enzyme function. Their powerful antiseptic properties will make you feel better over time, to provide you with more energy.
2. Aids in Weight Loss:
Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. Studies have shown people who maintain a more alkaline diet; do in fact lose weight faster. I personally find myself making better choices throughout the day, if I start my day off right, by making a health conscious choice to drink warm lemon water first thing every morning.
3. Proper Functioning of the Nervous System :
Water with lemon aids in proper functioning of the nervous system (as lemon has a high content of potassium). Depression and anxiety are often the result of low levels of potassium in the blood. The nervous system needs a sufficient amount of potassium to ensure sustainable signals to the heart.
4. Balances PH:
Lemons, once digested become alkaline even though they start off acidic. Introducing alkalizing foods for the body can reduce inflammation and maintain PH levels for a well-functioning body.
5. Promotes Healing and Overall Health:
Vitamin C and Vitamin P found in lemons promote healing and improves capillary permeability and overall blood flow. The ascorbic acid in vitamin C promotes wound healing and when vitamin C travels through the body it neutralises any free radicals. (Free radicals can interact with the healthy cells, damaging their membranes which can lead to inflammation).
