Benefits of Lemon Water

I use to consider myself a “fake” coffee drinker because a cup of coffee was only right for me if it had a lot of creamer and sugar. I also figured that I only drink coffee because I needed something warm to drink at my desk at work in the morning. These last few weeks I have been replacing coffee with hot lemon water. Lemon is such a great morning pick me up. Not only does it taste pretty good, it has many health benefits.

Listed below are 10 benefits of lemon water:

  1. Helps maintain the pH balance of the body

  2. Helps with weight loss

  3. Rich source of Vitamin C, Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus & Magnesium

  4. Boost the immune system

  5. Promotes digestion and increases the metabolic rate

  6. Helps fight respiratory tract infections and sore throats

  7. Provides electrolytes to the body

  8. Helps reduce joint and muscle pain

  9. Helps the body detox

  10. Protects the skin against damage

Do me a favor. The next time you think about getting a cup of coffee first thing in the morning, replace it with lemon water and reap the benefits.
