During the month of January I decided to start my day with a glass of lemon water before having my coffee. Like many people, I begin my day with a good old cup o’ joe. I am one of those people who has very little interest in even entertaining the idea of giving up coffee so this was not what this experiment was about. There are several benefits of drinking lemon water including the following:
- It Aids in Digestion: acid helps breakdown food hence there being so much in our bellies naturally but as we age we produce less of it so lemon water may help.
- Helps get you Hydrated: many of us dont get enough water as is so having a glass first thing in the morning starts you off on the right foot.
- Prevents Oxidation: lemons contain phytonutrients that protect out body against disease. These substances have antioxidant properties for the body.
- Vitamin C Boost: vitamin C helps protect us from cell damage and repair injury aside from giving us a immunity boost.
