Water and lemon juice: the benefits
Drinking this mix in the morning has many benefits. First of all, it hydrates the body, gives energy and stimulates diuresis. Lemon juice, in fact, has a diuretic effect, detoxifies the liver and regulates the intestinal activity, in case of both constipation or diarrhea.
Thanks to the high content of vitamin C, this drink strengthens the immune system and helps to prevent the flu. Finally, lemon water helps to lose weight, because this fruit contains pectin, a substance that controls appetite and gives the felling of satiety.
Lemon water: recipes
The classic recipe is very simple to prepare: simply add the juice of half a lemon to a cup of hot water (not boiling, otherwise it would compromise the content of vitamin C) and drink the mix as if it were a tea.
If you can not tolerate the lemon acidity, you can try and add honey. In this way, it will also become an excellent remedy against cough, sore throat and colds.
In summer, instead, you can make a detox lemon water. You just need to put some lemon slices in cold water and let sit overnight.
Finally, if you need a natural remedy to digest, we recommend a mix of water, lemon and baking soda. Add to a glass of water the juice of a lemon and a teaspoon of baking soda. Stir and drink immediately.
