1. It gets things started
When you wake up in the morning, all your organs are just waking up too and lemon water provides the jumpstart they need for proper functioning. This is especially beneficial for your digestive system for which the lemon water acts as a reminder to eliminate the waste from the body.
2. Super soft skin
If just drinking water can do miracles for your skin, can you imagine what lemon water that is filled with supercharged antioxidants do for you? It keeps your skin hydrated and plump, giving you that enviable healthy glow (You can throw away that highlighter now).
3. Energy booster
Lemon water will give you all the benefits of an energy drink without the side effects. It does an amazing job of balancing the electrolytes that your body loses through sweat as you go about your day.
The citric acid found in the lemons help eliminate harmful bacteria from your body and also flush out the toxins that only do you harm by sitting in your body. Lemon water is like a warm bath for your liver, it loves it and keeps it in tip-top condition.
5. No more feeling under the weather
People who drink lemon water on a regular basis have fewer chances of catching a common cold or the flu. This is because of the vitamin C in lemon which will make your immune system stronger and will build up a wall against viral infections.
6. Overall health
One of the most underrated minerals that our body needs is potassium. This is found in abundance in lemon which is useful in keeping your heart healthy, brain, kidney and even muscular functions.
7. Weight loss
The pectin fiber present in the lemon will reduce your food cravings which will help you on your journey of weight loss. It also boosts metabolism making it easier for you shed a few kilos with just minor changes to your lifestyle and diet.
