7 Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water

If you’re not drinking a glass of lemon water to start your day every day, then you should consider starting right now.

There are numerous health benefits to this drink and it can prevent a number of problems, restore the body, and eliminate toxins. However, there are more benefits to lemon water than this. Let’s take a look at a few of those so that you can see and understand how this is something you should consider adding your own daily routine.

1.) Reducing Inflammation

Inflammation has been tied to so many different illnesses, so reducing it would only mean better health. By drinking lemon water, you can decrease the acidity in your body and remove the buildup of uric acid, which occur regularly in inflamed areas, such as the joints.


2.) Dropping the Pounds

If you are trying to lose weight, then this is a benefit you will very much enjoy. Lemons have an ingredient in them called pectin fiber. They actually help your body and mind fight hunger cravings so that you won’t find yourself wanting foods as much.

3.) Cleansing Your System

As toxins build up in your body, they can wreak havoc on your systems. They are direct contributors to inflammation and they just make you sick.   The worst part is toxins come from everywhere: the foods you eat, the environmental chemicals you are exposed to, and even the toiletries you use. Lemon water will actually improve enzyme function in the liver, and this allows the liver to properly flush toxins from the body.

4.) Improves the Skin


Lemon water contains powerful antioxidants, and these will help to improve your skin by:

  • Diminishing wrinkles
  • Improving the look of scars
  • Reducing age spots
  • Diminishing acne

Lemon water can actually just make the skin look radiant.

5.) Aids in Digestion

The lemon juice in lemon water will actually aid in digestion. That’s because it encourages your digestive tract to increase the amount of bile it produces and this bile is key to properly breaking down foods.

6.) Boosting Your Immune System


Lemons are chock full of vitamin C, and that means drinking lemon water will actually help to improve your immune system. This will reduce the chances of getting sick from things like the common cold.

7.) Improving Mood

The scent of lemon can actually help calm the nerves.  Drinking lemon water and breathing in that scent is a great way to start the day. You will enjoy an energy boost and you can expect an improved mood. Lemon water can help reduce the effects of both anxiety and depression.

As you can see, there are numerous different benefits to drinking lemon water, and this is honestly just the beginning. Lemon water can also reduce pain in the joints, maintain proper pH balances in the body, work as an antibacterial, and replenish body salts after you have worked out.

For these reasons alone drinking lemon water could be a great option to add to your daily routine.  Preferably, you should drink it right when you wake in the morning, but as long as you get it in sometime during the day, you’ll be reaping the benefits.
