I start every morning with a glass of water with half a lemon squeezed into it. It's a super easy habit to pick up, and has loads of health benefits. Here are a few...
- It balances your body's pH level. Although lemon is an acidic food, it turns alkaline when metabolized, helping to purify the blood.
- It keeps your skin clear and glowing. Lemons contain Vitamin C, which helps with wrinkles and blemishes.
- Lemons can also relieve symptoms of indigestion, such as heartburn, bloating, gas and cramping. Drinking lemon water regularly will aid in the cleansing of the bowels, which helps eliminate constipation and diarrhea.
- Lemons have an antibacterial property, so they can help get rid of a throat infection.
