Beneficial To Kidney Health And Other Advantages Of Drinking Lemon Water

Lemon water is rich in sugars, vitamin C, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, niacin, and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, and iron.

Drinking some lemon water every day can supplement the nutrients the body needs.

Lemon water can prevent spikes in hunger thanks to its blood-sugar-balancing pectin (a type of soluble fiber) and hydrating mojo, says Neville. If you’re still snacky after a meal, mix 1 cup of warm water with the juice of 1/2 lemon and a pinch of lemon zest (feel free to add a drizzle of honey).

New research also found that drinking lemon water can prevent the formation of kidney stones, which is very beneficial to kidney health.

After the minerals in the urine crystallize and accumulate inside the kidneys, kidney stones can occur.

Citric acid helps prevent kidney stones

The citric acid in lemons may help prevent kidney stones. Citrate, a component of citric acid, paradoxically makes urine less acidic and may even break up small stones.

Lemon juice contains citric acid, however large amounts may be needed to increase your urine’s pH.

Lemon water contains a lot of citric acid, which can inhibit mineral crystallization, thereby reducing the incidence of kidney stones.

In addition, lemon water is rich in vitamin C, 100 grams of lemon juice contains about 39 mg of vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant, with anti-oxidation, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and other functions.
