We know that lemons are rich in vitamins and we also know that we should drink a sufficient amount of water. Well, if you are trying to lose weight and wash away the toxins in your organism, you should know that lemon water is a combination between the two that should not miss from your diet. But, why drink lemon water instead of just eating lemons or drinking their juice?

Even if lemons are packed with vitamins and minerals, like vitamins C and B, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and fibers, their juice can be quite harsh on your digestion and teeth enamel, due to its acidity. So it is best to dilute it with water, enjoying all the benefits lemons can give you, while staying hydrated as well. Here are the reasons why you should do so.

 

 

It keeps your immune system working properly

If you didn’t know, your immune system needs vitamin C to work properly and fight off any infections, viruses or bacteria that are trying to make you ill. Luckily, lemons have plenty of vitamin C, so drinking lemon water will keep you on the safe side. It will keep colds and flu away, together with a set of infections, promoting a great state of health. You may also make sure you drink this water especially when you are stressed, because stress affects negatively your immune system.

 

 

It feeds your brain and nerves with potassium

 

If the immune system needs vitamin C, your brain and nerves require potassium to work well. Also, your heart will benefit from the intake of potassium, keeping up the pace and functioning without a problem. Lemons have quite a high amount of potassium, higher even than grapes and apples.

 

 

It takes care of your digestion

  1. I pretty much hate lemons. I don’t like anything with lemon in it except lemonade. So, I could probably drink lemon water if its good for me. The first thing that caught my eye in your post was regarding potassium. I take a prescription that depletes my potassium and I have to get regular samples to see where my levels are, and that is usually followed by instructions on how to get more potassium.

    1. Hello Leahrae,

      Yes, drinking lemon water is really super healthy and if you really dislike lemon try to drink lemon water through a straw as it will not only protect your teeth from enamel damage but also the lemon taste will not be as strong. Its great you are keeping an eye on your potassium level as it is quite important for your overall health balance. Thank you and have a great day 🙂

  2. I’ve started taking lemon water for lunch nowadays. Cut two slices and let it steep in my thermos over the morning hours. By noon, the taste is just nice.

    I am trying to cut down on my carbs for lunch and eat primarily veges, meat and lemon water (sometime with honey). It makes me feel lighter and more energize to work actually. Definitely a cheaper and healthier version than all the sweetened lemon juices out there.

    1. Yes Cathy,

      You have made a great decision by drinking lemon water and honey is just the cherry on the top of the cake, as it will give your body even more vitamins. Your body will detoxify it self and you should notice more radiant skin appearance with stronger immune system.
