Drinking a glass of lemon water every morning has many health and beauty benefits. It will rejuvenate and cleanse your body, give you a glowy complexion and make you lose weight too! All you have to do is pour some lukewarm water into a glass, cut a lemon in half, squeeze it and add a few drops of juice (about one or two teaspoons). But don’t expect overnight results. You need to drink it regularly to see the benefits.
Lemon contains minerals like potassium, calcium and magnesium and high levels of Vitamin C. Because of that, it boosts your immune system preventing and treating infections, helps healing wounds and diminishes allergies. It also has antioxidant properties.
Lemon water improves digestion by helping our livers to produce more bile and relieves digestive problems such as heartburn, bloating and constipation. It also cleanses the body by helping eliminating toxins and waste products. This is not only good for the body, but for your skin as well. In fact, getting rid of toxins will give you a healthy, glowy and not sallow complexion.
Because of its detoxifying properties, lemon water is also said to help lose weight. However, if you want to lose a few pounds quickly, this won’t do it. The effects are long term and you still need to eat healthily and exercise.
