We have all heard it somewhere or the other that drinking warm water with the juice of one lemon, is beneficial for health. Here is delving into the reasons…

Helps your digestive system
Warm lime water on an empty stomach early in the morning helps stimulate the gastrointestinal tract. Digestion improves, heartburn is reduced and it helps in the process of elimination.

Detoxifies liver
Lemon juice has citric acid, which helps the enzymes to function better. It also stimulates the liver and aids in detoxification.

Works on your pH level
The acidity in our body can be harmful and lemon water can help reduce this. Though lemon has citric acid, the nutrients and minerals in it are alkaline in nature.

Strengthens your immune system
All citrus foods are a storehouse of vitamin C. This vitamin is known to fight colds and is good for your immune system. Lemons also have potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function and controls blood pressure.

Clears and freshens your skin
Experts say that vitamin C is great for youthful skin, because it helps in the production of collagen.

Battles bad breath

Aids in weight loss

Do not overdo the lemon bit

Note to remember: Adding a little honey to your lemon juice makes it more palatable and also battles phlegm and helps rid your body of mucous.

Never: Use bottled lemon juice. Only the natural lemon is beneficial.

Always: Rinse your mouth with plain water after you drink lemon juice.
