Benefits of drinking lemon water every morning

1. If your metabolism is slow you can jump start it with a glas of lemon water in the morning. Best if you can drink at least 3 cups a day.

2. It increases your potassium levels. Potassium is an element that is essential for cell function and metabolism, transmission of nerve signals.’ Potassium lowers your blood pressure, when low on potassium you might experience muscle cramping and perhaps irregular heart rate. Fresh coconut milk is an excellent source for potassium.

3. Animal studies have found that the citrus flavonoids in lemon may protect the liver against toxins and reduce fat in the liver, which means protecting against fatty liver disease.’ Your liver is the body’s natural mechanism for flushing out toxins.

4. The vitamin C in lemon juice will support your skin to look younger.  Higher vitamin C intakes were associated with fewer wrinkles a study showed. Vitamin C is a nutrient that can fight off free-radical damage and for that it can protect the skin from damage and early aging.

5. Lemon water helps to digest food. ‘The citrus flavonoids in lemon increase the acid in the stomach in breaking down food, which may improve overall digestion. It is recommended to drink the water warm to provide the greatest digestive benefits. Aiding digestion is especially important as we get older, because the amount of acid in our stomach declines with age.

Celebrities and naturopaths won’t start their day without drinking a glass of lemon water.
