4 Health Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water

By Brandi Swieter

Water is really the only drink people should have on a daily basis. It has no calories or sugar and promotes health in a number of ways. Those who do not like the taste of plain water can spruce it up some by adding lemon to the beverage. Lemon water actually provides some health benefits of its own, which makes it worthwhile for people to drink it this way more often.

Improved Digestion

The atomic structure of lemon juice is similar to that of the stomach’s digestive juices. Because of this, lemon water helps to increase functioning within the stomach. This means improved digestion and and even improving symptoms of an upset stomach. Lemons help to promote better absorption which can mean taking in more nutrients from the foods you eat, and less bloating.

Freshened Breath

Water alone never seems to do much for breath, but adding lemon, a strong-scented fruit, to the mix is bound to freshen up breath quickly. The citric acid found within the fruit helps to stimulate the salivary glands within the mouth. This will help to fight off bacteria which in turn can make the breath smell much better than before.

Reduced Weight

Drinking lemon water instead of other sugary beverages is a great way to help reduce weight and keep weight off from here on out. While plain water is the best drink when trying to start a weight loss journey, the plain taste makes it unappealing to many. Adding the lemon is an easy fix to get people to drink more water and achieve the goals they’re trying to meet.

Rejuvenated Skin

Poor skin is something many people suffer from. Whether the skin is dry, cracked, or simply appears aged, people can drink more lemon water to help rejuvenate it and get a more healthy, youthful look. The Vitamin C found in lemons offers antioxidant properties that work to fight off anything bad in the body that can make the skin age faster. Consuming more Vitamin C will have many advantages for the skin and other areas.

Anyone looking to improve their health should start by adding more water to their beverage list. Plain water is typically said to be the best, but lemon water is also a great option with plenty of benefits. Consume either more often and see the changes your body starts making.
