Vitamin C – lemon juice boosts the immune system
Organic lemon juice is rich in vitamin C. This is what gives lemon water its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and the boost to the body’s defences. However, vitamin C is very sensitive to heat, so drinking cold lemon water is also beneficial.
Be sure to buy organic fruit & vegetables to avoid pesticides and chemical fertilisers that are commonly sprayed on commercial supermarket produce. We love (Flannerys, Parkwood Fruit & Veg) just to name a couple.
Detox and deacidify the body
It’s hard to believe, but lemon has an alkalising effect. This, at least, is the basis of the acid-alkaline theory. A glass of lemon water will restore your acid-alkaline balance if you have eaten over-acidified foods or stimulants. Lemon water also has a slightly diuretic effect and can help to discharge harmful and toxic substances through your urine.
Lemon water hydrates the body
Lemon water supplies the body with vital fluids and minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium as well as traces of iron and vitamin A.
Lemons can help with weight loss
Lemon juice facilitates weight loss due to its many beneficial effects: besides deacidifying and detoxing the body, it also aids digestion. It is an added tool, along with plenty of exercise and a healthy diet.
Aids and improves digestion
Warm lemon water helps the stomach to break down food and also stimulates the formation of bile in the liver. By gently regulating digestion, lemon water can help with both constipation and diarrhoea. Lemon juice contains a high level of citrate – which can prevent the formation of kidney stones and gallstones.
