Lemon Juice

An avid drinker of water, I’ve learnt adding a squeeze of fresh lemon juice can add a refreshing spin on an old favorite. When I started drinking a glass of lemon water more regularly, it was after learning it helps with digestion, little did I know just how many more benefits there are.

Digestion
Lemon juice is said to encourage healthy digestion by loosening toxins in your digestive tract, but have a cup of warm lemon water and it could also be used to help relieve symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, burping, and bloating.
Cleanse
It helps flush out the toxins in your body by enhancing enzyme function, stimulating your liver.
Skin
The antioxidants in lemon juice help to not only decrease blemishes, but wrinkles too! And because it’s detoxifying your blood, it will get your skin looking more radiant.
Potassium Power
Lemons are high in potassium, which is good for heart, as well as your nerve functions and brain.
Slim
Lemons contain pectin fiber, which assists in fighting hunger cravings.
Fresh
It also helps relieve toothaches and gingivitis, so it helps eliviate bad breath, but because the citric acid can erode tooth enamel, I would suggest you brush your teeth before drinking it.


It’s important to dilute the lemon juice with water, as it can be hard on the enamel of your teeth. Drink it first thing in the morning, and wait 15 to 30 minutes for your body to get what it can from the lemon water, before having breakfast.

  1. I tend to be so much more alert in the morning after a cup of lemon water, lemon tea, or lemon in a smoothie. It's a real game changer for my entire day.

  2. Dont really put it in my tea much, but with winter around the corner (and more tea drinking), that should change, but a squeeze of lemon in my water and smoothies is now standard. (^^ ,)
