Jessica Mae: Why Lemon Water is Good for You

Why Lemon Water is Good for You

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 :)
