But weight loss is not the only reason for drinking lemon water every day. Lemon juice is full of vitamins and nutrients, like vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium and fiber. If you are ready to drink lemon juice every day, make sure to mix it with water first.

This is necessary for our mind that our day starts with good and energetic thoughts and our body also needs healthy morning energy drinks like lemon water. You can start your day by drinking lemon water for many purposes.

What happens to your body when you drink lemon water?

Do you know what happens to your body when you drink a glass of lemon water every morning?

If you drink every morning a glass of lemon water on an empty stomach, this is what happens to your body.
We all have our morning habits, how we start the day and what we do first thing after we get out of bed. Some drink a cup of tea, others a cup of coffee, some first have breakfast, and others just storm out of the house leaving these things for work or maybe you are one of those who starts their day with a glass of water to jumpstart your metabolism?

Whatever your morning rituals are, if you drink a glass of lemon water every morning at empty stomach this is what your body reacts.

Every morning when you drink a glass of lemon water boosts your digestion, improve your metabolism and help your body flush out the toxins. That makes you feel lighter. Drinking lemon water daily can reduce your extra fat y releasing toxins every day from your body.


Here are some of the biggest benefits of drinking lemon water in the morning which will convince you to start doing it as well.

     Gives your immune system a boost

Lemon juice has a lot of vitamin C (not a spectacularly high amount, but 30-50 milligrams per lemon) which helps your immune system. Lemon water works as anti-oxidants which enhances the immune system. It also has antiviral and antibacterial properties which support to the immune system to build up new antibodies and fight up against diseases.  The drinking lemon water first thing in the morning gives the body a chance to absorb these vitamins effectively and can provide a little immune boost.

     Excellent source of potassium

Lemons are full of potassium they are great to keep your heart, brain and nerves running smoothly which reduces your stress. When you are stressed your vitamin c level will drop so drinking lemon water on a stressful day can help you to become stress free.

      Freshens bad breath

Have you ever rubbed a lemon on your hands to remove a powerful stench? It’s thought to neutralize odors. The same folk remedy may apply to bad breath caused by eating foods with strong smells like garlic, onions, or fish. If you drink a glass of lemon water daily after brushing your teeth in the morning than you can get rid of bad breath for the whole day.

If you are  having a problem of bad breath , people will avoid  talking to you  face to face that can lead you to a stressful situation so you don’t need to worry just brush your teeth twice a day properly and drink lemon water every day after brushing.

It will release all toxins and plaque from your teeth and make them fresh. Keep your breath sweeter by drinking a glass of lemon water after meals and first thing in the morning. Lemon is thought to stimulate saliva, and water helps prevent a dry mouth, which leads to remove bad breath caused by excess bacteria growth.

      It improves your digestive health

It is often said that a healthy digestive system is the cornerstone of good health. Lemons are the primary source of pectin fiber which is necessary for good digestion. For this, a glass of warm lemon water acts as the kickstart for your digestive system. Some people drink lemon water as a daily morning laxative to help prevent constipation. Drinking warm or hot lemon water when you wake up may help get your digestive system moving. Ayurvedic medicine believes the sour lemon taste helps stimulate your “Agni”. In Ayurveda, a strong Agni jump starts the digestive system allowing you to digest food easily and helping prevent the buildup of toxins.

      Balances the minerals in your body

Instead of energy drinks, rehydration salts and glucose electrolyte solution, lemon water is used as a highly efficient dehydration treatment.

When we exercise we lose minerals including sodium, potassium and chloride. Drinking water alone doesn’t rehydrate you, add a few slices of lemon in warm water it will balance the process of maintaining minerals in your body.

     Improves your skin Quality

Vitamin C found in lemons may help reduce skin wrinkling. People who consume more vitamin C have less risk of wrinkled and dry skin. However water improves skin is controversial, but one thing is certain. If your skin loses moisture, it becomes dry and wrinkle prone. Whether it’s better to apply moisturizer to the skin or drink more water isn’t clear, but UW health recommends drinking at least eight glasses of water daily to stay hydrated and rid the skin of toxins.

     Weight loss

You might have tired of hearing that drink warm water every morning at empty stomach that reduces your weight but you follow it some days and then leave because of no results. This is because you are supposed to take in a particular amount and you might have exceeded or undertaken it.  A study published in the journal of clinical biochemistry and nutrition showed that polyphenol antioxidants found in lemon significantly reduced week game caused by a high-fat diet in mice in addition ensued and resistance was improved, while the same results need to be proven in humans, anecdotal evidence is strong that lemon water supports weight loss. Whether this is due to an increase in water intake and fullness or the lemons remains to be seen.

     Prevent  kidney stones

The citric acid in lemons may help prevent calcium kidney stones. Increased intake of citric acid decrease your risk of getting new calcium stones. Drinking lemon water not only helps you get more citric acid, but also the water you need to prevent stones. Having half cup of lemon juice provides the same amount of citric acid you would find in prescription verities.

     Sleep better

Drinking lemon water before bed can help boost the necessary nutrients and minerals in your system; also it could add to your balance your body’s vitamins. Lemon water can also increase your energy level the next day because it helps repair your muscles and joints and alleviate your hormones. When you regularly drink lemon water before bed, it can help you sleep better, thus making you more energetic. Throughout the day our body needs water to stay hydrated. Drinking lemon water before bed can help replenish and re hydrate the water that you lost throughout the day, other than that it will help your muscles work efficiently through proper circulation. Your muscles will not be sore when you wake up.

Detoxify and changes mood

When lemon water increases your energy levels, it will help oxygenate your body which will boost your mood. You will not dread waking up in the morning because you will feel recharged and face the day with a happy smile.  People frequently breathe and intake toxins throughout the day by pollution, fried foods, alcohol, smoke, dust and makeup etc.  Which can make us sick, Luckily for us , having lemon water can get rid of the body’s toxin. Also it will help your body to detox overnight. Though you might need to go to bathroom several times.

Honey and lemon water

Drinking honey and lemon water in the morning is good for your health. It removes excess water from your body that helps to initiate the digestive system. But it may not be help mantra for losing weight because it’s just help to excrete the excess water which reduces your weight by 1 or 2 kg after excretion but at the end of the day you will regain the same weight by drinking water and eating food. Hence honey with lemon water is not a fitness mantra for weight loss but absolutely it is good for your health. It helps to remove extra water from your body. Drinking lemon water with honey can help in hypertension also.  If you use honey with lemon water then don’t mix honey with hot water. Always mix honey in warm water. If honey lemon water gets cold before drinking don’t heat it up because it will lose the all nutrients of honey and lemon.

Side effects of lemon water

Lemon water contains high amount of vitamin c which can make your mouth sour and can affect the enamel of teeth.  Excessive drinking of lemon water can make your teeth sensitive. We suggest you to drink lemon water with straw so that while drinking lemon water, the water cannot touch your teeth. If you do not have a straw drink and hold some fresh water for a few seconds and throw out after drinking lemon water.

Excessive drinking of lemon water can increase the amount of acid in your body because it contains citric acid. We suggest you to not drinking lemon water if you have acidity.  Just drink half lemon in a glass of water to fulfill your digestive need which requires enough amount of vitamin c if you don’t have acidity problem.

How to make lemon water properly

We all are making and drinking lemon water since our childhood but are you making it properly?  Some people drink sweet lemon water or other salty. Here we are going to discuss about lemon which is full of nutrition’s, are we taking the full of it. 99 % of people directly squeeze the lemon in a glass of water and through the remaining lemon.  If you are doing the same then you are not taking the full nutrition of lemon.

Here are some easy steps to make lemon water properly

1.    Firstly take a fresh lemon (prefer organic lemon) and wash it properly. Chop the head of lemon which can contain pesticides.
2.    Now grate the lemon peel with the help of the grater.  1 lemon peel has more nutrients than 10 lemon juice. Just grate the upper layer only, inner layer of peel may be bitter.

3.    The outer peel of lemon contains 5-10% more vitamin C than juice inside it. Along with this peel can easily remove toxins from our body so never waste it again.
4.    Now take a glass of water at room temperature. Squeeze the same lemon in water after cutting it into two parts. Now add that lemon zest (grated peel) into the water.
5.    Mix it thoroughly. You can add ice cubes as your requirements. It is much tastier and refreshing as well full of vitamin.
You can just cut the lemon into slices and put them in warm water in a glass of water for 2-3 minutes. 

If you have a sour throat problem you can add honey to lemon water. Drink fresh lemon water every day and flush the toxins out of your body.

Now on, always make lemon water like this, whether you would like to add sugar or salt you can add as per your taste. But if you are thinking about losing your weight then doesn’t add sugar in lemon water because it not only reduces the effects of lemon on our body but also increases our weight. Salty lemon is best in summer for rehydration.
