Benefits of Drinking Warm Lemon Water Every Morning

June 13, 2013

A squeeze of lemon into warm water every morning has more lasting effects than one might think...

  • Cleanses the system: juice from fresh squeezed lemons act as a diuretic and help flush the system (ie they make you pee a lot). The citric acid in lemons also stimulate the liver, which also detoxifies your body
  • Skin: the antioxidants and vitamin C in lemons help give you a glowing complexion. In addition, it's alkaline level helps kill the bacteria responsible for acne. 
  • Immunity. The vitamin C does more than give you a beautiful complexion. Vitamin C as well as potassium work to strengthen the body's immune system   
  • Hydration: the lemon water combo help to hydrate and replace fluids used by your body's operational functions
  • Weight loss: the high levels of pectin fiber found in lemons help curb hunger cravings. 
  • Fresh breath: the tart lemon flavor freshens your breath and relieves gingivitis

  1. I do this every day, but I make an entire pot and take it to my desk and make sure it is gone by the end of the day. In the summer months, I chill it and add a pinch of sweetner for a cool, brisk lemon shot all day long. For dinner, freeze this in ice cube trays as great flavored additions to your summer cooler and last, splash some sugar, honey and champagne and freeze sheet pan breaking up ice crystals every hour for a wonderful fresh summer sorbet. Healthy and refreshing! When you are done with the lemons, toss them in olive oil and sea salt and throw them on the grill until they have great char marks. Top on fish, salads, or chicken for an unexpected fantastic Cali-Med summer zest of flavor. Celebrity TV Chef, Porter Brooks
