Why you should drink LEMON WATER

Why you should drink LEMON WATER

#1. Your Immune System. It is full of Vitamin C that gives your immune system a boost!

#2. Potassium! Lemon water is full of potassium, which is good for you muscles as well as heart health and brain and nerve function!

#3. Cleanse. Helps flush your system of toxins by enhancing enzyme function and stimulating your liver!

#4. Your mouth. Helps with toothaches, gingivitis and and freshen your breath!

#5. Your Tummy. Aids digestion and helps with heartburn, bloating and burping!

#6. Weight Loss! Lemons contain pectin fiber, which helps combat cravings. 

#7. Reducing inflammation. If used regularly, lemon reduced the level of acidity in your body and removes uric acid in your joints, which is a main cause of inflammation!

#8. Your skin. Lemons are full of antioxidants, which help decrease blemishes and wrinkles!

#9. Helps fight infections. Warm lemon water is not only soothing for a sore throat, but also helps fight viral infections. (Not to mention the immune system boost mentioned above!)

#10. Energy and mood enhancement! Lemon gives you an energy boost and helps reduce anxiety and depression! 

*Tip- while I like my lemon water iced, the health benefits are increased when drinking it with WARM water. (Try adding it to hot tea!)
