    Starting your day off on the right note is very important. That’s why you should drink a tall glass of lemon water first thing each morning.

    Lemon water detoxifies you from the inside out, boosts your energy levels, and gives your organs the jumpstart they need to run healthily and smoothly all day long. According to Well-Being Secrets , the vitamins and antioxidants in lemon water fuel your body and prepare it for a full day’s work. Lemon water is also alkalized, which assists in keeping your organs and circulatory system in balance and working at their optimal levels.

    Per Life Hack, people who weigh less than 150 pounds should squeeze half a lemon into a room temperature tall glass of water. If over 150 pounds, use an entire lemon’s juice. If the taste is too strong for you, you can dilute it a bit with a little more water or a touch of honey.

    One of the most important nutritional factors of lemons is Vitamin C. It’s an antioxidant and cofactor for the absorption of other nutrients such as iron. The rest of the nutritional components of lemons that allow it to combat so much in the human body are folate, potassium, magnesium, Vitamin B6, and thiamin.

    Here are a list of other benefits you might not know.

    1. Gives your immune system a boost.
    Vitamin C is like our immune system’s jumper cables, and lemon juice is full of it. The level of vitamin C in your system is one of the first things to plummet when you’re stressed, which is why experts recommended popping extra vitamin C during especially stressful days.

    2. Excellent source of potassium.
    As already mentioned, lemons are high in potassium, which is good for heart health, as well as brain and nerve function.

    3. Aids digestion
    Lemon juice not only encourages healthy digestion by loosening toxins in your digestive tract, it helps to relieve symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, burping, and bloating.

    4. Cleanses your system
    It helps flush out the toxins in your body by enhancing enzyme function, stimulating your liver.

    5. Freshens your breath.
    It also helps relieve toothaches and gingivitis. Because the citric acid can erode tooth enamel, either hold off on brushing your teeth after drinking lemon water or brush your teeth before drinking it.

    6. Keeps your skin blemish-free.

    The antioxidants in lemon juice help to not only decrease blemishes but wrinkles too! It can also be applied to scars and age spots to reduce their appearance, and because it’s detoxifying your blood, it will maintain your skin’s radiance.

    7. Helps you lose weight.

    Lemons contain pectin fiber, which assists in fighting hunger cravings.

    8. Reduces inflammation.

    If you drink lemon water on a regular basis, it will decrease the acidity in your body, which is where disease states occur. It removes uric acid in your joints, which is one of the main causes of inflammation.

    9. Gives you an energy boost.

    Lemon juice provides your body with energy when it enters your digestive tract, and it also helps reduce anxiety and depression. (Even the scent of lemons has a calming effect on your nervous system!)

    10. Helps to cut out caffeine.

    I didn’t believe this until I tried it, but replacing my morning coffee with a cup of hot lemon water has really done wonders! I feel refreshed, and no longer have to deal with that pesky afternoon crash. Plus, my nerves are thankful.

    11. Helps fight viral infections.

    Warm lemon water is the most effective way to diminish viral infections and their subsequent sore throats. Plus, with the lemon juice also boosting your immune system, you’ll simultaneously fight off the infection completely.

    12. Helps Cleanse Your Liver

    Water is the key component of any detox diet plan, and drinking it is a great way to ensure you drink lots of it.
    In addition to the healthy benefits of lemon cleansing water, the enzymes may help stimulate liver functions and aid in the elimination of wastes from your body.
    It will also suppress your appetite so you are more successful and have fewer cravings while on your detox or cleansing plan.

    13. It Prevents Kidney Stones
    The citric acid in lemons may help prevent calcium kidney stones. UW Health recommends increasing citric acid intake to decrease your risk of getting new calcium stones. Drinking lemon water not only helps you get more citric acid, but also the water you need to prevent stones.
    Having 1/2 cup of lemon juice provides the same amount of citric acid you’d find in prescription varieties.

    14. Helps To Deal With Asthma
    Lemon juice is rich in the essential Vitamin C, which has been linked in affecting asthma in children.

    Research shows that a low intake of Vitamin C produced an increased risk of asthma during childhood.
    Keeping up a good intake of Vitamin C, which is found in lemon water and other citrus fruits, can help to supplement a medically-arranged asthma treatment plan.
