Health Benefits Of Lemon Water

Published 5/14/13

What Is Lemon Water?

Lemon water is simply a cup of water, either hot or cold, that includes some fresh squeezed lemon juice in it. The amount of water and lemon juice can vary per the consumer’s preferences. The recommended concoction is one-cup of hat or warm water with freshly squeezed juice from one-half of a lemon, or 1-tablespoon of pure lemon juice. The body’s metabolism can receive a bigger boost if a pinch of ground cinnamon or ground ginger is added to the glass of lemon water.

Lemon Water Benefits

The main benefits of lemon water present themselves when the beverage is consumed first thing in the morning. The lemon water stimulates the digestive system when it is consumed with nothing else in the stomach. This improves the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food and drinks consumed throughout the day.  The lemon in the water cleanses the palate as well as flushing wastes and toxins out of the kidneys and liver. The lymphatic system receives a boost from the lemon water, which also improves the body’s ability to remove wastes and toxins from the body. Additional benefits of lemon water include boosting the immune system with over 30-milligrams of vitamin C and improving weight loss efforts by improving the body’s ability to absorb calcium by increasing acidity in the digestive system. Calcium absorption enhances the body’s ability to lose weight because calcium is stored in fat cells and the more calcium in fat cells the easier it is to burn those fat cells.

Lemon Water Detox

The purpose of the lemon water detox is to cleanse the body, lose weight, and improve overall health. The detox calls for consuming nothing else but water, pure organic lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and natural maple syrup for 7-14 days straight. The lemon water increases the acidity of the digestive system allowing for improved digestion and the removal of wastes and toxins in the kidneys and liver. The cayenne pepper boosts the metabolism, which also improves the body’s detoxification process. Whenever the detoxification participant feels hungry they should concoct another lemon water detox beverage to curb the hunger pains. This detoxification process will not only present a physical challenge but also an intense mental challenge as the cravings for food, drinks, and sweets will be nothing short of practically unbearable.
