Lemon Water
« on: August 05, 2020, 12:34:06 PM »
Squeezing a lemon into a glass of water provides a number of health benefits.  I tried it a few years ago after reading an article on the training routine of a professional stuntman.  Within a few days my joints felt better and my flexibility improved.


  • Aids in digestion 
    Acid helps break down food. Thatís why thereís so much of it in our stomachs. The acid in lemons may be especially helpful in supplementing stomach acid levels, which tend to decline as we age. 
  • Helps you stay hydrated 
    Most of us donít drink enough water. A daily lemon water habit is an easy way to get your day off on the right foot. How do you know if youíre drinking enough? Your urine is almost clear. 
  • Weight-loss friendly 
    Weíre creatures of habit. Ponder the impact of replacing your morning OJ or latte with lemon water. Not just once, but perhaps 20 times a month ó and multiply that by 10 years. Your waistline will thank you.
  • Prevents oxidation 
    Like all produce, lemons contain phytonutrients, which protect your body against disease. These phytonutrients have powerful antioxidant properties, which prevent cell damage from oxidation, the same mechanism that causes rust. 
  • Supplies a healthy dose of vitamin C  
    Juice half a lemon into your water and youíll add a mere 6 calories to your diet. Plus youíll get more than a sixth of your daily vitamin C, which is needed to protect us from cell damage and repair injury. 
  • Provides a potassium boost
    Your body canít function without potassium. Itís necessary for nerve-muscle communication, transporting nutrients and waste and blood pressure regulation. Fruits and vegetables are important sources of potassium. 
  • Helps prevent kidney stones 
    Lemon water helps prevent painful stones in those deficient in urinary citrate (a form of citric acid). More importantly, increased fluids help prevent dehydration ó a common cause of kidney stones.

I put lime in my water every meal. It allows me eat much more food and it doesn't leave me feeling sluggish if its a heavy meal.
