Seven reasons you should drink lemon water everyday

Here are seven reasons why you should drink lemon water on a daily basis:

Assists digestion- Acid aids in food digestion. That's why our tummies are so stuffed. Lemon acid may be especially useful in augmenting stomach acid levels, which tend to decline as we age.

Maintains hydration- We don't drink nearly enough water. Every day, a glass of lemon water is a simple way to start your day off correctly. How do you know when you've drunk enough? Your urine has an almost colorless appearance.

Weight-loss friendly- We are beings that follow routines. Consider the effect of switching from orange juice or a cappuccino in the morning to lemon water. Not once a month, but rather 20 times a month — multiplied by 10 years. You'll be grateful afterward.

Prevents oxidation- Lemons, like many fruits and vegetables, contain phytonutrients that assist your body fight illness. These phytonutrients have strong antioxidant properties that protect cells from oxidative damage, the same process that causes rust.

Provides a healthy dose of vitamin C - By juicing half a lemon into your water, you may add 6 calories to your diet. In addition, you'll get more than a sixth of your daily vitamin C requirement, which is necessary for cell defense and damage recovery.

Provides a potassium boost- Potassium is vital for your body's healthy functioning. It is essential for nerve-muscle communication, nutrition and waste transport, and blood pressure management. Potassium may be found in high concentrations in fruits and vegetables.

Helps prevent kidney stones- Lemon water can aid in the prevention of kidney stones in those who have low urine citrate levels (a form of citric acid). Increased fluid intake also aids in the prevention of dehydration, which is a major cause of kidney stones.
