Most people laugh at me when I tell them I drink lemon water. Nutritionist Kimberly Snyder quickly pointed out that it is because most don’t focus on the healing properties of foods, and I completely agree! I have been buying lemons for years and squeezing them into my water. I love water by itself, but there are so many health benefits associated with drinking water with lemon.
Lemons alone are packed with a variety of vitamins and minerals, like potassium, calcium and vitamin C – when you combine it with water, you have somewhat of a super drink! Squeezing lemon in your water helps rid our bodies of impurities, cleanses the blood and boosts our immune system. It also stimulates the liver and improves the digestive system. When toxins are removed from our bodies, we have more energy and our skin becomes clear and vibrant. Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning is especially beneficial because it helps stimulate and get our bodies off to a good start.
