Let’s go over the eight benefits of drinking lemon water daily.
Reduce Fat in Your Liver
If you drink lemon water regularly, you may be able to reduce the amount of fat in your liver. The phytonutrients in lemon water can help improve hepatic steatosis, which is a condition characterized by an accumulation of fat in the liver.
Lemon water can help dissolve the fat in the liver. Other things that can help reduce the fat in the liver include a low-fat diet or a ketogenic diet. Adding lemon to your water may help speed up the process.
Drinking lemon water can help reduce cholesterol. This is because lemon water can help increase the flow of bile through the bile ducts and help remove some of the excess cholesterol that’s backing up in the system.
Help Lose Weight
Lemon water does not directly help you lose weight, but it can indirectly help you lose weight by reducing insulin resistance. Studies on animals have shown that phytonutrients in lemon water stimulate and significantly lower blood sugars, which can lead to weight loss.
Lemon water has been shown to lower insulin levels, which can lead to weight loss. Because lower insulin levels make it harder for fat cells to store energy. If you’re wondering how to lose weight, start by looking into ways to lower your insulin levels.
According to a recent study, lemon has an anti-aging effect. The study found that, on average, animals given lemon water lived three weeks longer than those that didn’t. This might not seem like a long time, but if you started drinking lemon water on a regular basis for the rest of your life, it could add up. The study also found that lemon water extended the life of the microbiome, the friendly bacteria that live in the gut.
Helps Inhibit Cancers
I’m not going to tell you that drinking lemon water is going to cure your cancer, but it’s something that could help inhibit it. In test tube studies, it was found that certain phytonutrients in lemon water were able to kill cancer cells in the tongue, lung, and colon.
Helps Prevent Kidney Stones
You may be able to prevent kidney stones from forming by increasing citrate levels in the body. Citrate binds with oxalate, which is a common component of kidney stones. Lemon water may help increase citrate levels.
Great Source for Vitamin C
Lemon water can give you vitamin C, but only if the lemons have not been heated. When you buy lemon juice, it is normally pasteurized, and the problem with vitamin C is that it is sensitive to heat. It gets degraded and destroyed with heat, so when you get bottled lemon juice, you are getting very little vitamin C. But if you get your vitamin C from an actual lemon, let’s say you just take a lemon and squeeze it into water, one lemon can provide up to half of your daily recommended vitamin C. Vitamin C is so good for the immune system. It is good to prevent bleeding gums. It is good to prevent spider veins. It helps form collagen. It helps keep your arteries from becoming damaged.
The last benefit of lemon water is in its phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are compounds that occur naturally in plants, and they have a variety of health benefits. Lemon water contains a few different phytonutrients, including three that are particularly beneficial for improving hemorrhoids, leg sores, circulation, spider veins, and varicose veins. In fact, one of the phytonutrients in lemon water is being tested as a potential treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. Lemon water is also very antibacterial, with antiviral and anti-fungal properties.
You should add lemon to your water regularly. I would also add apple cider vinegar to your water. I would recommend adding the juice of one whole lemon or just a couple teaspoons, but be consistent and include it in part of your liquids every day.
