The health promoting benefits of lemons are powerful. It has been known for centuries that lemons contain powerful antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting components. Lemons don’t just smell delicious and make your skin soft, they are a great digestive aid and liver cleanser.
Lemons are full of goodness. They contain citric acid, magnesium, bio-flavonoids, vitamin C, pectin, calcium and limonene, which all supercharge our natural immunity so that our body can fight infection.
They are considered one of the most alkalising foods you can consume. On their own, they are acidic. And you probably been told this many times. But in the body, lemons are alkaline; once metabolised, the citric acid does not create acidity. The minerals in lemons are what helps to alkalise our blood. A lot of people suffer with acidity (from eating too much sugar and grains), and by drinking warm lemon water they can reduce overall acidity. Warm lemon water draws uric acid from the joints, which reduces the pain as well as the inflammation which many people suffer with. Warm lemon water also encourages regular bowel movements.
So what do you say? Are you going to start having warm, organic lemon water first thing in the morning?
