What Is Lemon Water?

Lemon water is nothing but lemon juice infused with water. Though you can drink it plain with add ons, I like to spice it up a bit by adding ginger, honey and a pinch of salt. Usually it is popular as a early morning drink as it is good for our digestive system but you can also drink it in-between meals or as an after meal drink too.

1. Lemon Water For Digestion:

I can confidently say that this lemon water is a very very good remedy for indigestion. I have used it plenty of times as a remedy for indigestion and it always works. If you are suffering from indigestion, try consume foods that are easy to digest like rice porridge, idli, etc along with lemon water to see good results.

2. Lemon Water is Hydrating:

Starting the day by drinking water is one advise that I have been hearing from my young age and adding lemon to it only increases the benefits. Drinking water first thing in the morning hydrates our body after 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Drinking plain water in the morning can be difficult for some people, for them adding a bit of lemon and ginger can make it easier to drink.

3. Lemon Water For Liver Detox:

Drinking plenty of water in any form helps flush out the toxins from the body and helps liver function at it’s best. Lemon water is very hydrating but to consume as a detox drink, try to consume it without any sugar even honey. You can spice it up with other spices like ginger and cardamom if you prefer.

4. Lemon Water Improves Immunity:

Our body uses antioxidants rich vitamins to boost immunity and vitamin C tops that list. Since lemons are rich in vitamin C, drinking lemon water helps improve immunity. Within a few weeks of regularly consuming lemon water, you will see marked improvement in your immunity levels.

Lemon juice has wonderful anti inflammatory properties and drinking lemon water can prevent and treat inflammations really really well. If you are suffering from any pain or inflammation, drink a warm cup of lemon water without any sweetener added to it.

Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C, it help increases immunity which in turn prevents common illness like cold and flu. As your immunity level goes up, you will find that you rarely get cold and flu anymore.

Lemon juice freshens our breath really well. Especially if you are suffering from bad breath, drinking lemon water can help. Since lemon water freshens our breath, it also greatly helps with nausea too

8. Lemon Water For Weight Loss:

Drinking adequate amounts of water and keeping our body hydrated can greatly aids in weight loss and lemon water does just that. But it is not a miracle drink that will aid drastic weight loss.

For permanent weight loss, it has to be accompanied with regular exercise and calorie controlled healthy diet. Sweetened lemon water has around 40 calories for every 100 ml and can be included in a diet plan.

9. Lemon Water For Healthy Skin and Hair:

Any food that keeps the digestion in peak health, is rich in antioxidants, helps remove toxins and keeps the body hydrated will keep our hair and skin in peak health and lemon water does just that. We can also use it externally for our hair and skin care too.

Any citrus scent will uplift our mood and energize us. Since I suffer from travel sickness, I prefer to carry a fresh lemon with me and whenever I smell it, I feel energized. Drinking lemon water also does the same thing.

Though I love lemon water and was having it for a few days regularly in the morning in empty stomach, I started having slight stomach irritation as lemon is highly acidic. If you find yourself getting stomach irritation, drink lemon water in between meals like I do. Also drinking of too much acidic drinks like lemon water can erode the enamel of our teeth so have it in moderation.

  • You can have this lemon water either hot or cold. I like it cold during hot summer months.
  • You can make a big batch and store in the refrigerator.
  • Here in India, the lemon we get normally is more sharp and acidic, so if you are finding it difficult to drink in the empty stomach, drink only in between meals.

    Hi Ramya, I am already trying out your horsegram and garlic drink in morning on empty stomach and can see that it helps in fat burning! I am thinking of alternating lemon and horsegram drink. So in winters, do I need to make it fresh everyday if I want to drink it hot or do I make and store in refrigerator and heat in on stove before drinking?And I am wondering why you did not squeeze the lemons?

    Hi Ramya! I am curious to know the name of your village. I live in Singapore. I would love to visit your place during my next trip. I have a request for you. Can you suggest remedies to turn grey hair to black hair? If there is no permanent remedy, can you suggest a natural, long – lasting hair dye without henna as an ingredient. Henna only makes my hair orange colour and dry. Cheers!Sundari
