We all know that warm water and lemon is good for health and the benefits get doubles when they are mixed. Here are some of its benefits:
1. Helpful for digestive system
A glass of warm lime water on an empty stomach early in the morning helps to clean the gastrointestinal tract. Digestion improves, heartburn is reduced and it helps in the process of elimination.
2. Detoxifies liver
Lemon juice has citric acid, which helps the enzymes to function better. It also stimulates the liver and aids in detoxification.
3. Works on your pH level
Experts say lemon can help change the pH balance of the blood and can also help in dealing with urinary tract infections.
Lemon has citric acid, the nutrients and minerals in it are alkaline in nature. Citric acid is not a strong acid and so, is easily removed from our bodies by elimination processes like perspiration. Lemon, however, stimulates the formation of calcium carbonate that neutralises other strong acids in the body.
4. Strengthens your immune system
Citrus foods are a storehouse of vitamin C and the vitamin is known to fight colds and is good for your immune system. Lemons also have potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function and controls blood pressure.
5. Freshens skin
Vitamin C is great for youthful skin, because it helps in the production of collagen. Warm lemon water removes toxins from the blood stream. Also, diluted lemon juice, when applied to blemishes, can actually help lighten them.
6. Fight against bad breath
Lemon juice battles bad breath by keeping bacteria away.
7. Helps weight loss
Lemon juice in the morning fights food craving. It has been found earlier that people who maintain an alkaline diet tend to lose weight more quickly than others.
8. Avoid excess of lemon
Do not use excess of lemon. Just because one lemon helped you lose two kilos, squeezing four in your juice will not help you lose weight. Lemon has corrosive properties too and your tooth enamel may suffer.
