According to MayoClinic You've probably heard that lemon water is an all-purpose remedy, capable of doing everything from making a sore throat feel less sore to curing cancer (a claim for which there is no scientific evidence whatsoever).
After all, water is the human body's best source of hydration, and lemon juice is rich in vitamins, including vitamin C and folate, and minerals like potassium.
You'll have clear skin.
The vitamin C component as well as other antioxidants help decrease wrinkles and blemishes and it helps to combat free radical damage. Vitamin C is vital for healthy glowing skin while its alkaline nature kills some types of bacteria known to cause acne.
It can be applied directly to scars or age spots to help reduce their appearance. Since lemon water purges toxins from your blood, it would also be helping to keep your skin clear of blemishes from the inside out. The vitamin C contained in the lemon rejuvenates the skin from within your body.
Your weight will be regulated.
Many people inculcate the habit of drinking lemon water because it is believed to promote weight loss. Given its high liquid content, it does make you feel full for a longer period.
Hence, it can help you consume fewer calories also, lemon juice is naturally low in calories. Replacing sugary soda with fresh lemon water is a healthful way to reduce calorie intake, which is a positive step toward healthful weight management.
Your risk of developing kidney stones is reduced.
Citrate, a salt in citric acid, binds to calcium and helps block kidney stone formation. Citrus fruits and juices are a known natural source of dietary nitrate. Of all the citrus juices, lemon juice appears to have the highest concentration of this kidney stone-blocking salt.
Your digestive system will improve.
The acid helps break down food. That’s why there’s so much of it in our stomachs. The acid in lemons may be especially helpful in supplementing stomach acid levels, which tend to decline as we age.
That is why some people drink lemon water as a daily morning laxative to help prevent constipation. Drinking warm or hot lemon water when you wake up will help get your digestive system moving.
