4 Reasons to Drink Lemon Water

If you can only make time for one ritual that will improve your health, let it be this. Start the day out with a mug of warm water and the juice of half a lemon. It’s so simple and the benefits are just too good to ignore:

1.       Boosts your immune system. Lemons are high in Vitamin C and Potassium. Vitamin C is great for fighting colds and potassium stimulates brain and nerve function and helps control blood pressure.

2.      Helps with weight loss. Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight cravings.

3.      Aids digestion. The warm water serves to stimulate the intestines. Lemons are also high in minerals and vitamins that help to loosen toxins in the digestive tract.

4.      Clears skin. The vitamin C helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps clear the skin as well.
