The Benefits of Lemon Water

 

We all know the importance of drinking water for our health, but did you know occasionally adding a splash of lemon to your glass of water provides these health benefits?

  1. Aids digestion – As we age, the acid in our stomach that aids in digestion declines. The acid from the lemons can supplement our natural stomach acids.
  2. Disease protection – The phytonutrients in lemons help fight chronic illnesses, prevents cancer, and strengthens the immune system.
  3. Great source of vitamin C – The juice of half a lemon added to your water provides more than a sixth of our daily vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential to protect our body from cell damage and to repair injury.
  4. Hydration and diet aid – Drinking lemon water each morning instead of orange juice will save more than 3,000 calories a month. Adding lemon may also help reach the recommended 6-8 glasses per day to stay hydrated.

The next time you waiter asks what you would like to drink, just say “Water with lemon, please!”

Tracy can be found giving engaging speeches & seminars throughout Vancouver where she is fast becoming the authority on elder care in the home.
