My mom has been telling me to drink water with lemon in it for who knows how long now. Never really gave much attention to it. I like lemon water, for instance, at restaurants I always order a water with lemon. I guess it just seemed like too much work to cut up my own lemon at home! But they are so packed with natural vitamins and minerals, so why not?
So I finally went to the store to get my own lemons, to make my own lemon water. I also did a little research myself. Here is what I found...
-Lemon water is a good body cleanse. It removes toxins from the body and strengthens the liver and naturally, a good liver makes for a better body.
-Lemon water helps with weight loss. For instance, it helps with not having cravings.
-Hot lemon water can soothe a sore throat and help bring down a fever.
-Boosts your immune system.
-It has been shown that it "can lead to a loss of anticancer activity".
-Lemon has been used to treat allergies and other infections.
There are so many other reason why lemon water is good for you. I just find new studies of natural medicines and remedies so interesting. Again I can thank my mother for that :)
