5 Reasons You Should Drink Lemon Water Every Day

Lemon juice adds flavor to so many different foods not only does it taste good but it turns out lemons are extremely good for you too. Water is essential to leading a healthy life; you should be consuming half your weight in water in ounces. For example if you weigh 130 pounds you should be consuming 65 oz of water daily. Now we are learning that we should be adding fresh lemon to our water daily. Why should you be drinking water with lemon? 1. Rich in Vitamins and Minerals First off lemons are packed with vitamin C and strengthen the immune system. Starting your day with a good punch of vitamin C has your immune system intact for whatever you may face that day. Lemons contain a large amount of potassium too, 80 milligrams in fact. So next time you have a muscle cramp and don’t have access to a banana drink your lemon water instead. 2. Weight Loss Lemons support weight loss; recent studies have shown that since lemons contain pectin a soluble fiber that helps with weight loss, drinking lemon water can help you hit your goal weight. Of course with a healthy diet and exercise program that is. It also curves your appetite so you won’t have the midday cravings you are used to. 3. Detoxes the Body Why do you think lemon water is all you consume while on the Master Cleanse because lemon detoxes the body. Lemon is a natural detoxifier; lemon water helps detox the liver by creating more bile which is necessary for digestion. Lemon juice also controls the flow of excess bile and makes sure it doesn’t damage the digestive tract. 4. Beautiful, Healthy Skin Lemon juice is good for your skin and has anti-aging properties. Since lemon detoxes the body it allows proper cell regeneration. The acid in lemon juice contains antioxidants which help get rid of toxins and free radicals that harm the skin. 5. Balances PH Lemons balance the PH levels in our bodies. Even though we think lemons have high acidity, they are actually an alkaline food that balances our body’s PH. With so many good reasons to drink lemon water daily I urge you to drink lemon water for 21 days and see what kind of results you see. You will most likely feel better, have more energy, lose a little weight and have great looking skin. Let me know what you think after you try lemon water for 21 days.
