The Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water
Many people enjoy adding a little lemon to their water because it adds a touch of flavor to an otherwise tasteless glass or bottle of water. However, many people are unaware of the many benefits associated with lemon water beyond just the simple taste boost. For example, lemon water is great source of vitamin C, which may help to fight off colds and may reduce the risk of other health problems such as heart disease and low blood pressure.
The advantages of this simple and tasty drink do not stop there. Lemon water also:
Has been linked to improved skin quality, as a study published by the American Society for Clinical Nutrition showed that people who consumed more vitamin C have less risk of wrinkled and dry skin.
May aid in the digestive process and has shown to help people avoid constipation and other digestive problems
Freshens breath because lemons neutralize odors and have been known to limit the growth of bacteria, which can cause bad breath
May prevent kidney stones because lemons contain citric acid, which has been shown to break down calcium that can cause kidney stones
Anyone who enjoys lemon water or wants to try it after learning about its benefits can enjoy this beverage hot or cold. Hot lemon water is a great alternative to coffee or tea in the morning, while a cool refreshing glass of lemon water can hit the spot during a hot summer day. Ginger, cinnamon, and even mint can also be added to lemon water for a unique flavor.
