18 Health Benefits of Lemon Water

Written by: Chinenye Molokwu and WorthyToKnow.com

As weight loss and other trends grow, lemon infused water is growing more and more popular, especially within the alternative health community. Drinking lemon water can still offer valuable health benefits. Here are some legitimate health benefits of drinking lemon water.

1. Cut down on Sugar Intake
Replacing just one daily soft drink with a water flavored with half of a lemon saves you 38 grams of dietary sugar and over 130 calories. Choosing lemon water once a day can help you maintain a healthy weight, decrease blood sugar fluctuation and reduce your risk for future health problems like diabetes.

2. Increase vitamin C intake
Water soluble vitamin C is not a nutrient that your body can make or store in any way, but it’s so important to good health. A key factor in the growth and repair of cells, vitamin C maintains teeth, bone, cartilage and muscles tissues while giving your immune system a real boost. It helps immensely in the wound healing process, too. Just one glass of water infused with half a lemon provides nearly a third of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C.

3. Relieve bad breath
A mouth rinse with lemon juice and water has been a known remedy for decades, at least. The stark acidity and antiseptic properties of lemon help to combat bacterial growth in your mouth. Lemon is an effective agent against sulfuric compounds as well, neutralizing garlic and onions. Simply drink a glass of lemon water after every meal to keep your breath fresher the whole day, though.

4. Avoid Anemia
Anemia is a condition in which the blood lacks vital iron that helps carry oxygen to all parts of the body and organs. Though heme iron, the kind typically found in meat and fish, is easily absorbed, many still struggle with fatigue, shortness of breath and the constant feeling of being cold that comes with anemia.

5. A boost to losing weight
The activation of bile acid receptors increases the number of calories you burn. Lemon contain nomilin, a phytonutrient shown to activate bile acid receptors in mice. Nomalin has been shown to promote lower body weight, blood sugar and insulin levels in treated mice when compared to their counterparts in the control group.
A glass of lemon-infused water can go a long way on your journey to weight loss.

6. Aids in Digestion
Your stomach juices and lemon juice are very similar to each other. Drinking lemon juice first thing in the morning helps loosen and flush out the toxins that fill your digestive tract. It will also help you with your morning bowel movements, infuse your stool with water while hydrating your colon and stimulating your bile production. Lemon juice actually helps people with heartburn, indigestion or bloating problems.

7. Gives Your Immune System a Healthy Boost
Lemon juice has a high vitamin C content; this important vitamin helps you fight off the seasonal onset of colds and flu. Lemons also help your body absorb more iron from the various foods that you eat.

8. Hydration
The effects of dehydration of the human body are not pretty; dehydration can be painful and deadly. Most people reach this state because they don’t drink enough water because plain water gets boring after a while. Drinking lemon water throughout the day will keep you hydrated without boring you. Add a zip of lemon to your plain water.

9. Energy Booster
Drinking a glass of lemon water before you have breakfast will give you an instant boost of energy, and will start your day off on a bright note.

10.  Rejuvenate Your Skin
Free radicals are the cause of wrinkles and the aging of your skin. Lemons contain antioxidants that stop this free radical damage. The vitamin C in lemons helps your skin maintain its elasticity, which prevents wrinkles from forming. This also helps decrease unsightly blemishes on your skin.

11. Reduces Inflammation
Uric acid builds up in your body and causes inflammation. Drink lemon juice to flush the uric acid right out of your joints.

12. Alkalizes Your Stomach
Lemons are very sour, but they are one of the best alkalizing foods on our planet. An overabundance of acid can cause a range of health problems from inflammation to Alzheimer’s; with obesity, cancer and diabetes some of the direst problems of too much acid. Lemon water neutralizes these acids.

13. Cleansing and Purifying
Lemon water flushes out toxins that build up in your body. These toxins can cause a lot of damage to your cells, tissues and every organ in your body. Lemon juice is a diuretic that helps keep your urinary track free from toxins while changing the pH levels to stop bacterial growth. People who suffer frequent urinary tract infections would benefit greatly from a daily routine of lemon water.

14. Antiviral and Antibacterial
Lemons have both antiviral and antibacterial properties that help you fight off the common cold, sore throats, and influenza. If you drink lemon water daily then you may not ever see these illnesses at all.

15. Mucus Fighter
It is true that milk increases mucus production. Drinking lemon water to start your day will help loosen mucus and allow you to have dairy for breakfast. Drinking lemon water all day will help keep your mucus free throughout the day.

16. Brain Booster
Lemon juice contains high levels of magnesium and potassium, both wonderful for nerve and brain health. Lemon water may also help fight off depression and help you beat stress. Creating mental clarity and higher focusing ability, lemon water makes a perfect drink for students or people with overly stressful jobs.

17. Fights off Some Cancers
Cancer loves to grow in an environment rich in acids. Because lemon juice neutralizes these acids, alkalizing your body may help stop cancer cells from growing, and may help prevent some cancers from even starting.

18. Lose the Caffeine
Many people find that once they start drinking lemon juice on a regular basis that they are content to start off the day with a glass of lukewarm lemon water. This drink will give you the energy boost that coffee or tea once did, without the caffeine buzz that goes along with it.
