Hot Water with Lemon
Hot water and Lemon gives your immune system a boost – Lemons are packed with nutrients including vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber.
The vitamin C in lemons can help alleviate stress and fight viral infections and sore throats. Potassium is beneficial to heart health, as well as brain and nerve function.
Reduces inflammation and cleanses the system – Drinking lemon water regularly decreases acidity in your body and removes uric acid from joints. It enhances enzyme function, stimulating your liver and activating bile flow, which helps emulsify and flush out fat soluble toxins.
Skin blemish-free — The antioxidants in lemon juice help decrease blemishes and wrinkles.
Weight Loss — Lemons contain pectin fiber, which assists in fighting hunger cravings.
A potential drawback is that the citric acid in lemon juice could erode the enamel on your teeth. To prevent damage make sure the water is lukewarm, not steaming hot. You can also drink through a straw so it bypasses your teeth, and rinse your mouth with water immediately after drinking. Wait 60 minutes after drinking to brush your teeth.
There are myriad benefits to drinking more water. Adding a cup of hot water and lemon to your morning routine will help you do that.
