We all know how many people often make a characteristic face when they eat lemons. You know the tight, puckered lips and squinted eyes.
You’d think that means that I’m missing out on all the wonderful effects that lemons bring to the table but you’d be wrong. When you combine lemon with a glass of hot water, like I do every morning, a large part of its tart flavor is handled by the water.
IS LEMON WATER GOOD FOR YOU?
Lemon water is extremely refreshing and energizing; plus, it’s a great metabolism booster. One of the most abundant nutrients in lemons is vitamin C.
A single cup of fresh lemon juice packs 187% of vitamin C RDA (recommended daily allowance)
Lemon juice is also rich in potassium, magnesium and copper.
But, there’s one common mistake most people do when it comes to lemons – they throw away the rind! Lemon peel is actually the most nutritious parts of the whole fruit.
If you are preparing your lemon water by squeezing some lemon juice and mixing it with some hot or cold water, you’re doing it the wrong way.
Even though it seems quite simple to mix two ingredients, it’s actually more to it than you think. Here we give you clear directions on how to make the perfect cup of lemon water to start your day with.
The Ideal Lemon Water Recipe
Take out a couple of fresh, preferably organic lemons.
Slice them as thin or thick as you like.
Squeeze some of the sliced lemons into the water but not all.
Grate some of the zest of these squeezed slices into your drink.
Place the remaining un-squeezed slices in your blender bottle, mug, or travel cup.
Fill to the brim with either boiling hot, or ice cold water.
LEMON WATER FOR THE WIN
As mentioned above, lemon water offers a wide range of health benefits. For one thing, it’s highly acidic, which promotes healthy digestion. Plus, it slows down absorption of food, conserving insulin stores in the body and ensuring optimal food processing.
Moreover, lemon water prevents waster retention and boosts metabolism.
Lemon water is always the winning combination. Start your day with a glass of it and boost your health on many levels! If you find this article useful, don’t forget to share it with your friends and family, as you might help someone in need. Thanks.
