The Health Benefits of Lemon Water
Lemon juice and peel have cleansing properties which can help rid the body of unwanted toxins. This fab fruit is high in Vitamin C which protects the cells that make up the immune system and neutralizes free radicals that can cause ageing and disease. It may also help you lose weight & suppress your appetite.
Feeding your body with foods which contain essential vitamins and minerals improves your body’s ability to process foods better over time.
Citrus flavonoids in lemon water act as a super digestive tonic, which can also help to suppress your appetite (say goodbye to sneaky snacking!)
Citrus flavonoids aid in helping to prevent fat storing in your liver, decreasing likelihood of cardiovascular disease, aiding in the assimilation of food and help to decrease your fat levels. Lemon water can also help to calm mild indigestion or an upset stomach.
DETOX AND CLEANSE
Drinking lemon water (especially after meals) may help to lower the number of toxins in your body. It improves your bodies enzyme function and liver’s ability to filter unwanted junk.Toxins enter our body from a variety of sources such as the air we breathe to the food we eat (so they’re pretty inescapable). The amount of urine is increased when drinking lemon water, but by drinking lemon water this means that urine will also contain citrate. Citrate can stall toxins which can build in the form of crystals in the body. The Citric acid found in lemons enhances your body’s ability to naturally flush out these unwanted toxins, meaning its the perfect choice if you want a detox drink!
Alkalinity is a process of neutralising acid in the body. When certain acids buildup, there can be lots of annoying side effects such as an upset stomach and acid reflux.
Lemon Water is a useful (and safe!) way to manage your body’s ph levels and will help you to achieve a healthy alkalinity. Some of the potential benefits of this are improved bone health, reduced muscle wastage and improving your cardiovascular health.
