Four reasons why you should drink lemon water every morning!

 

 

Health is very often easier to achieve that we believe and far less complicated than we make it out to be. I believe that good health comes from the things you do everyday. Changing the things you do everyday can help you reach health goals faster . One of the healthy habits I encourage my clients is to have is a mug of warm water with freshly squeezed lemon in the morning. Simply use half a fresh lemon per mug and pour warm water and sip ideally through a straw.

Lemons are a rich source of nutrients, they including vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fibre. 

Drinking lemon water in the morning could bring about a wide range of benefits.

1.Reduces inflammation.

Drinking lemon on a regular basis, may help decrease the acidity in your body. It is also believed to removes uric acid in your joints, which is one of the main causes of inflammation.

2.Aids digestion.

Lemon water encourages healthy digestion. Lemons contain citrus flavonols that are believed responsible for lemon’s traditional use as a digestive tonic. Lemon water is traditionally understood to support digestive hydrochloric acid in the stomach which helps aid digestion. 

3.Healthy Skin

The antioxidants and vitamin C in lemons may help to decrease blemishes and wrinkles too. Vitamin C and other antioxidants in lemons are believed to combat free radical damage. Antioxidant intake can help minimising wrinkles. 

4.Immunity 

Lemons are high in the antioxidant vitamin - vitamin C, which is well known for its supportive role in healthy immune function which may reduce the risk of respiratory infection. Lemons also contain saponins which show antimicrobial properties that may help keep cold and flu at bay. Vitamin C also enhances iron absorption in the body; iron plays an important role in immunity.

 

Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning can also help people reduce their caffeine consumption which has many benefits for the body. Not only are the benefits of lemon water endless, it’s one of the most substantial yet simple changes you can make for your health.

It is important to note that Lemon juice can damage the enamel of your teeth, so I encourage clients to sip it through a straw.
