Lemon Water | Why You Should Drink it Every Day

Why I Drink Lemon Water

When I wake up in the morning I always grab a mug, heat up some water, and squirt half of a lemon into the mug. I drink this every morning, and every night. It’s my routine because it’s really good for me, and I inspire you to do the same! Here are some concrete health reasons why you should drink warm lemon water every day.

Rid Your Body of Toxins

Lemons are really good at flushing out toxins in the body, so that’s one of the reasons I stick to it every day! Drinking warm lemon water helps activate your digestive system which will keep everything flowing smoothly throughout the rest of the day.

Get Your Nutrients

Lemons are also full of healthful nutrients such as potassium, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and of course vitamin C – which is an essential nutrient that protects the body against immune system deficiencies. This pretty much means that lemons help protect you from getting a cold or flu during flu season. Since winter just started, this is the best time to consume your lemon water!

Keeps Your Skin Fresh

Your skin can also benefit from drinking warm lemon water. Since lemon juice helps rid your body of toxins, it can actively clear your skin! It helps prevent the formation of wrinkles and acne thanks to the nutrients in lemon. Not only that, but you can use it in a homemade face scrub. I personally use a mixture of salt, tea tree oil, grape seed oil and lemon juice to cleanse my blackheads. Want whiter teeth? Mix lemon juice with baking soda, and you’ve got yourself a beauty remedy there too!

Makes You Smarter

Drinking lemon water can also aid in oxygenating the brain and increasing brain function. Lemons do this by regulating the carbohydrate levels in the blood. Lemons are also high in antioxidants which aids in this as well. It improves brain speed and concentration, and also improves memory.

Replenishes Your Body After a Workout

Drinking lemon water after a workout can help replenish your body’s salts after a strenuous workout. This can reduce muscle soreness and can quicken your recovery time. Lemon water helps to alkalize the body, so it can reduce the lactic acid in your muscles that causes the soreness.

Helps You Lose Weight

Lemons contain something called pectic fiber, which helps relieve the sensation of hunger. Not only that, but pectin is actually a fat blocking soluble fiber which can reduce your body’s ability to absorb and store fat. This means your body will let dietary fat digest and pass through your body before it absorbs it. Which means, bye bye saddle bags!

Reduces Inflammation

If you’re having body aches or muscle pains, drinking lemon water on a regular basis will help reduce pain. If your joints or muscles are inflamed, the flavonoids in lemons are said to lower your body’s levels of interleuken-8 which is a natural inflammatory chemical in the body.

There are many more health benefits of drinking lemon water, but these are the ones that appealed to me the most so these are the reasons why I drink it every day – morning and night! So start the new year off right and start drinking warm lemon water. One glass before you eat and before you head out for your morning cardio, and one glass after your nightly workout!
