Some of the amazing health benefits to warm lemon water:
Fresh lemon juice helps to cleanse the bowel by flushing out the waste more effectively and stimulates the release of gastric juices which aid digestion.
Lemon juice can also help the relief of bloating and heart burn symptoms.
Supports Immune System
Lemons are full of vitamin C which helps the body to fight colds and the flu.
They are high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function. Potassium also helps control blood pressure.
Vitamin C from lemons have a anti-inflammatory effect and is used as complementary support for asthma and other respiratory symptoms.
Balances PH Levels
Lemons are one of the most alkalizing foods for the body. They are acidic on their own, but inside our bodies they’re alkaline (the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized).
Lemons contain both citric and ascorbic acid, weak acids is easily metabolized from the body allowing the mineral content of lemons to help alkalize the blood.
Disease states only occur when the body pH is acidic. Drinking lemon water regularly can help to remove overall acidity in the body, including uric acid in the joints, which is one of the primary causes of pain and inflammation.
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) which found in abundance in lemons, promotes wound healing, and is an essential nutrient in the maintenance of healthy bones, connective tissue, and cartilage.
As noted previously, vitamin C also displays anti-inflammatory properties. Combined, vitamin C is an essential nutrient in the maintenance of good health and recovery from stress and injury.
Cleanses The System
Lemon juice helps to flush out unwanted toxins because lemons increase the rate of urination in the body.
Therefore toxins are released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy. The citric acid in lemons helps maximize enzyme function, which stimulates the liver and aids in detoxification.
