Today our blog is all about the benefits of drinking lemon water as part of our series of blog posts on healthy eating and drinking.
It’s important we all look after our bodies as much as we can, especially as we’re getting older and many small changes can help reduce the risk of developing diseases and other troubles later down the line.
Drinking fresh lemon water each morning is a great change to make to your diet. It allows you to get your essential daily portion of vitamin C and lemons are a good source of folate, potassium, calcium and magnesium.
It can also help relieve or prevent digestive problems, heartburn and stimulate better digestion in general.
Lemons are antiseptic and drinking lemon water can have a cleansing effect on your liver and kidneys. They also have antibacterial properties, so if you have a sore throat then, drinking warm lemon water can really help.
Drinking lemon water is also said to be good for your skin thanks to the high vitamin C content.
