Lemon water is the best thirst quencher there is but this is not the only good thing about it; lemon water is packed with vitamins and minerals that are good for your body. If you have a glass of lemon water first thing after you wake up, you will get a huge energy boost.

The following are some of the reasons you should drink lemon water right after you wake up:

Balances the pH Levels

Lemons are acidic but did you know that they are alkaline once they get into the body. The minerals in lemons alkalize the blood and this balances pH levels.

Immune Booster

Lemons have plenty of vitamin C that fight colds and can also be used to control asthma and other respiratory conditions. Lemons also have potassium that stimulates brain functions and controls blood pressure.

Better Skin

The high vitamin C and antioxidant content in lemons help the skin to fight wrinkles and blemishes and other forms of skin damage. Vitamin C plays a vital role for beautiful glowing skin and its alkaline nature prevents acne.

Good for Weight Loss

Lemons have a type of fiber known as pectin fiber that eliminates hunger cravings. Studies have demonstrated that people who keep up an alkaline diet lose weight faster.

Improves Food Digestion

Lemon juice helps the digestive system to remove surplus materials from the digestive tract by breaking them down and supporting the liver to make more bile.

Warm lemon water is also good for bloating, indigestion and heart burns.

How to Make Lemon Water

Use lukewarm purified water as cold water is processed slowly by the body. Just squeeze half a lemon (fresh) into a glass of lukewarm water and drink it first thing when you wake up.
