I’ve recently started drinking lemon water daily and I have already began to notice the changes in my body. Your entire life you are told to drink more water and sometimes it’s just not that easy to do. There are days when I wake up craving all eight glasses of it and there are days when I hardly notice that I haven’t had any. Ever since I have added lemon water to my daily routine I have already seen changes in my skin, weight, and energy. They may not be big changes but they are big enough for me to want to share why you should start drinking lemon water daily too.
One of the best ways to go about this is to start each day off with a full glass. Skip your coffee, tea, milk, or juice at least until you have had 1 full glass of lemon water. Not only will this encourage you to drink more throughout the day, but the morning is the best time to drink a full glass if you want to get your metabolism going. Check out below some of the reasons why I drink lemon water daily and why you should start doing it too.
Improve Your Immune System
Lemon water helps to produce more white blood cells, which are essential to help your immune system work properly. You also get a healthy dose of Vitamin C daily which fights off colds and the flu virus.
Keep Your Body Hydrated
Lemons enhance the flavor of water which helps encourage you to drink more. Drinking more water hydrates you and boosts your energy.
Reduces & Helps Prevent Inflammation
If you drink enough lemon water daily it will help to reduce the acids in your body, including uric acids which is a main cause of inflammation in your joints.
Increase Your Metabolism
Drinking lemon water is a great way to boost your metabolism, which is why it also promotes weightless.
Detoxify Your Body
Lemons are a diuretic which increases urine production and results in your body flushing out many toxins.
Clear Up Your Skin
The antioxidants in the Vitamin C help to fight skin damage caused by free radicals (damage caused from smoke, pollution, or dust). It will give you younger, smoother, healthier, and wrinkle free skin.
