Why Morning Lemon Water Might Be Better Than Coffee

By Genevieve Cunningham

For many, there's nothing better than a soothing morning drink. Something warm and energizing -- this is what makes coffee so popular. But coffee comes with downsides. For some, it makes them too jittery. For others, it makes their stomach hurt. And yet for others, it's the staining of the teeth that they don't like. Luckily, there's another option -- perhaps a better option -- that can take the place of coffee and bring even more benefits into your morning and your life. If you're interested in a morning habit that might lead to better health, take a look at why lemon water may be just what you need.

It Kick Starts Hydration

A lot of people turn to water or soda or something caffeinated in the mornings. It helps them get moving and gives a burst of energy. But if you choose lemon water, you'll kick-start your hydration. Staying hydrated is very important for your overall health and well-being, but it's also really important for energy, focus, and general mind and body health. If you like something warm, just use hot water. If you're a soda drinker, throw some ice in your water. But it's never a bad idea to start your morning with water -- and a properly hydrated body. 

It Fights Inflammation

Lemon has been shown to help fight inflammation in the body. Why does this even matter? Because surprisingly to many, it's inflammation that leads to various kinds of illness, pain, and general decline in health. If we can keep inflammation at bay, we have a much better chance at staying healthy and pain-free overall. Start your day with lemon water to fight off current inflammation, prevent further inflammation, and to feel better in your body all day long. 

It Can Help the Immune System

Lemon -- and most other citrus fruits -- are packed with a very important vitamin: Vitamin C. This vitamin is absolutely crucial for our immune system, which is the system that fights illness and infection and keeps us well. If you can start your day off with a boost to the immune system, why not? Drinking lemon water over a long period of time may give you just a little boost to help you stay healthier longer.

Lemon water may take some getting used to. You might be used to strong coffee or something less bitter. But if you can adjust your taste buds and expectations, it can be a great choice. Give lemon water a chance in your morning routine, and you may stumble upon a morning habit that leads you toward better health starting today.
