Not everyone may know this, but drinking a glass of lemon water in the morning has many benefits for your health.
Lemons are rich in antioxidants and contain much-needed vitamins and minerals.
I usually drink orange juice in the morning, but after seeing this, I definitely need to think about switching to lemon water.
Here are 11 reasons why you should drink a glass of lemon water every morning.
1. Treat acne
Lemons can help prevent acne, according to some experts.
Note: don’t use lemons to treat major acne problems that include open wounds.
2. Protect against kidney stones
Lemons contain potassium, which raises oxygen levels in urine, which in turn prevents the buildup of kidney stones.
According to the Global Healing Center, lemons can prevent kidney stones and other kidney problems.
3. Strengthen the immune system
Lemons strengthen the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system, and help find and kill pathogens.
4. Fight obesity
Lemons contain several vitamins that regulate blood sugar. They also contain pectin, a fiber that controls hunger. Lemons also help the digestion process.
Doctor Shilpi Agarwal recommends squeezing a lemon in water, or adding lemon slices to water.
According to her, this will help you absorb more vitamin C. “Adding vitamin C to your diet is a great way to boost energy and fat burning,” she says.
5. Soothe an aching gallbladder
Lemons help reduce the pain of a sore gallbladder. Drink a glass of lemon water when you need some relief.
6. Ward off colds and the flu
The vitamin C in lemons is a natural antioxidant as well as an antibacterial. When you start feeling sluggish, drink a glass of warm lemon water.
7. Strengthen fingernails
Lemons strengthen fingernails and reduce the appearance of white spots.
8. Relieve inflammation
Lemons contain ascorbic acid, which has anti-inflammatory and wound-healing effects.
Drinking hot water with lemons is a classic cold remedy that most people have tried. Lemons have antibacterial and antiviral properties. And they also help combat inflammation in the nose and throat.
9. Lower blood pressure
Lemons help the body combat dehyration, which can lead to high blood pressure.
10. Soothe sore muscles
If you have sore muscles and joints after a good workout, drink a glass of lemon water to relieve the pain.
Lemons are rich in potassium, which helps regulate the body’s water-acid balance and fluid balance. Potassium also has a positive effect on the heart and it regulates renal and nerve functions. Additionally, potassium also lowers blood pressure.
11. Reduce wrinkles
Lemons help increase collagen in the body, which otherwise decreases as we age. Thus, they reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
If you don’t like to needlessly take medicine, definitely try drinking lemon water in the morning.
