Lemon water has a great reputation for being an excellent drink first thing in the morning, but you really know why? it’s not only a nice picture, but it has incredible benefits for your body! Read on to find out.
Alkalinizes the body
Research suggests that our bodies can function better and fight disease more efficiently when we eat an alkaline (non-acid) diet.
Although lemons are naturally acidic, you know they can really help reduce acid in our bodies? Incredible, right?
Lemon water can also help prepare your body for breakfast. This is because lemon juice can increase the production of enzymes, which help the body break down food.
Lemons are full of vitamin C, which helps keep the immune system strong and helps us recover from colds and flu faster.
Like I said before, lemons are loaded with vitamin C. This supervitamin also plays an important role in keeping skin young and vibrant.
How to make your own water with lemon
- Fill a large cup with warm (but not boiling) water. If you decide to boil the water, let it boil for 2 to 5 minutes to cool it a little.
- Add the juice of 1/2 lemon and stir to combine. Avoid the use of bottle lemon juice, as it often contains preservatives.
- Add a few slices of fresh lemon for extra lemon flavor.
- Drink slowly and enjoy.
