4 Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water

Starting your day with a slice of lemon in a glass of water instead of coffee or tea can benefit your body in so many ways. There are so many benefits associated with drinking lemon water and here are just a few of them.

Hydration

It’s recommended to drink 8 glasses of water each day, but this is super challenging for many of us. If you don’t like the taste of water on its own, add a slice of lemon to enhance the flavor and this will encourage you to drink more throughout the day.

Improves Your Skin Quality

The Vitamin C found in lemons can help reduce skin wrinkling and with all the water you are drinking this will keep your skin hydrated and looking soft and supple.

Aids Digestion

Drinking lemon water in the morning can help prevent constipation and it also helps get your digestive system moving. It will allow you to digest food more easily and it helps prevent the build-up of toxins.

Freshens Breath

Have you ever chopped an onion or a clove of garlic and the smell lingers on your hands? Well, if you rub your hands with lemon the smell will be removed. The same remedy applies to drinking lemon water for your breath after eating foods with strong odors. The lemon stimulates saliva and the water prevents a dry mouth, which can lead to better breath.
