1. AIDS DIGESTION

Acid helps break down food. That’s why there is so much of it in our stomachs. The acid in lemons may be especially helpful to help supplement stomach acids, which decline as we get older.

2. HELPS YOU STAY HYDRATED

Most of us don’t drink enough water. A daily lemon water habit is an easy way to get your day off on the right foot. How to know if you’re drinking enough? Your urine is almost clear.

3. IS WEIGHT-LOSS FRIENDLY

We’re 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 — and multiply that by 10 years. Your waist line will thank you.

4. PREVENTS OXIDATION

Lemons contain phytonutrients, or substances that protect your body against disease. These phytonutrients have powerful antioxidant properties, which prevent us from oxidizing or essentially rusting from the inside out.

5. SUPPLIES A HEALTHY DOSE OF VITAMIN C

Juice half a lemon into your water. You’ll add a mere 6 calories and get more than a sixth of your daily vitamin C — needed to protect us from cell damage and repair injury.

6. PROVIDES A POTASSIUM BOOST

Without this mineral, your body can’t function properly. It’s necessary for nerve-muscle communication, and transporting nutrients and waste. Potassium also can counter some of the effects of salt on blood pressure.

7. HELPS PREVENT KIDNEY STONES
