1. Fights Viral Infections

One of the best ways to fight off the viruses that cause colds and the flu is by drinking lemon water each morning. Lemons are naturally antiviral, anti-bacterial, and antiseptic, which means they can stop most infections, including viral infections, before they start.


2. Improves Digestion

If you suffer from any type of digestive problem, including heartburn, reflux, or nausea, then you can benefit from lemon water. Lemons help our bowels remove waste and prevent constipation, which is a great way to stop toxins from getting “stuck” in the colon.  You might think that an acidic lemon is the last thing you need when you have indigestion or heartburn, but lemons turn alkaline once they are consumed, so they will help reduce the amount of acid in the stomach.


3. Stops Kidney Stones

If you have ever had a kidney stone, then you know how excruciatingly painful they can be. Worse, once you develop a kidney stone, they tend to come back again. You can stop this by simply drinking a few glasses of lemon water during the day.
