Welcome back to my blog my beautiful greeny apples. How is everyone doing this morning?
On today’s selfcare post, I will be talking about the benefits of lemon water in the morning and as well as myths about lemon water.
This issue was raise on one the page I followed on instagram and decided to share with everyone and also be able to agree with all these informations because I have been drinking lemon water in morning as part of my cleanse and detox drink.
First I will talk about the benefits and also the myths of lemon water in the morning. This is a must read to know more about health benefits of lemon.
Benefits of lemon water in the morning
The temperature of the water taken in the morning aids digestion by flushing out the digestive system of toxins in the morning and rehydration of the body. Adding lemon juice to warm water helps digestion because the greatest lemon water benefit is the water temperature.
The liver is always active during sleep and time for the body to restore and regenerate. Drinking enough water, especially in the morning, ensures the body performs these Jobs effectively.
Immune system boost with Vitamin C
Lemon contains vitamin C not a high amount. a quarter cup of lemon juice contains 31 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C and 3 percent of folate and 2 percent of potassium — all for around 13 calories. A whole raw lemon contains 139 percent of the recommended daily vitamin C intake and has 22 calories. Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning gives the body a chance to absorb this vitamin to boost the immune system.
By helping flush the body and improve digestion, lemon water can lead to cleaner skin. It also contains vitamin C which is needed for Collagen production for smooth and healthy skin.
Maintaining Healthy Weight
There is evidence that drinking water especially lemon water, first thing in the morning can help maintain a healthy weight. Researchers found that drinking enough water increased metabolism.
Myths and things that lemon water won’t do
Drinking enough water and adding a little amount of vitamin C boost like lemon are good ideas, but they are not magic and some claims about the benefits of lemon online have no genuine or scientific backing.
Balances Ph Level
Lemon water only affects the pH level of urine and not the pH level of blood which means some food can leave alkaline or acidic ash in the body. Urine pH level is different from blood pH level.
Above all, water is great source of detoxifying and cleanses.
