Lemon Water Health Benefits

The fresh smell of lemon always lead me to a good start of anything! Actually drinking lemon water have heaps of health benefits. I first started drinking WITHOUT knowing any of the benefits and purely just because I wanna make a good habit to consume enough water to stay hydrated, so I thought adding some lemon juice in my H2O will give it a more refreshing taste hence would wanna drink it more frequently.

I've only come to know of lemon water's benefit only after I Google for it thinking that it will have downside to health. I was proved very wrong! I started with 3 slices of lemon in warm water (Without Sugar) drinking it 3 times a day. It was so addictive that I started squeezing half a lemon in my daily drinking bottle (1.5L) and eventually a full lemon per 1.5L now and drinking almost 3 bottles (4.5L) through out the day. I didn't feel any difference for the first few days, but when the weekend comes, I noticed my poo is starting to change from dark to very light color. This is when I know the lemon juice is starting to take action, cleaning my body removing all the acids. I've never felt any better from then onwards! I started to feel more energetic, even after a tiring day, I could still hold up for the evening without a problem, no more complaining of sleepy and tired!

↑  Here I added a piece of lime to give it a little bit of sweetness, but NOT always!

This is a brilliant, simple and a very cheap way to boost your health and immune system. Just squeeze fresh lemon juice in your daily H2O (I also throw the lemon wedge in my water after squeezing) and drink! Actually not only mineral water, I add lemon juice and wedge to green tea too! Though the taste isn't as what you expect, but its still nice! You guys who is reading this should definitely try it! It works for me, and I hope it will for you too! I've read in some forum, people said drinking too much lemon water will erodes teeth enamel. Some people suggest drinking it with straw, and some said to rinse your mouth after drinking. I'm not very sure of the problem because I've been drinking lemon water coming a year, other than giving me a better health and lifestyle boost, I've got no complaint!

Let me know how it affects you if you started drinking or if you're already a lemon water drinker! Happy Drinking !
