Most of my clients know that I'm a big lemon water drinker. Im not talking about that artificial stuff lemon juice in a bottle. Trust me it is not the same. I'm talking about " cutting board, fresh lemon sliced by your favored IKEA knife" lemon water. Especially in the morning before I start my day of teaching and training. For many benefits, but Im only gonna name 5 reason that many people on the fitness lifestyle can relate to help you see its beauty of a lemon in yo life.
If you are like me, water can become plain and boring. Especially when you have the sniffles, it actually help you drink water better to avoid dehydration , which can happen very quickly if you are not careful. Prep for this fall/ winter- You're welcome,lol!! A kick of zest from a lemon can change all of that. I usually cut up a lemon and use it in my tumbler for a day. If you are a bad water drinker, purchase a small tumbler and toss a lemon slice inside with your water. It will remind you to drink that zesty water.
2. Improves your Skin
Nobody would pass on a beauty wonder like this, unless you are crazy. Lemons have the antioxidant vitamin C that helps reduce the sign of wrinkles. A published study in the well known American Society for Clinical Nutrition concluded that people who consumed more vitamin C have less risk of wrinkled and dry skin by focusing on removing toxins from the skin and keep the skin hydrated.
Lemon water can get the gears moving in the AM. by removing toxin build up & dare I say it...keeps ya pooping by helping the body from experience constipation. #thankmelater
4. Weight loss
Water in general takes a win in this area. But it brings me back to reason 1. on the list. By adding lemon to your water intake, it helps you to drink more, creating the full sensation when drinking water with a meal.
Again, these are just a few. Remember too much of something is not always a good thing either and everything is not for everybody. If you are unsure always consult your medical practitioner.
