Lemons are packed with nutrients, including vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber.
I started to squeeze some lemon in my water after learning how good it is for your skin and seen I break out so much so often these days, I decided what the heck, so every time I go to the market or walking on the street and see a vendor with lemons, I’m stocking up like crazy. All I do is squeeze one lemon and sometimes half in a glass of water and voila! Right now I have a bunch of them in my fridge just waiting to be squeezed. It is soooo very refreshing, omg! I just can’t get enough.
Here are a 6 benefits of drinking lemon water:
Lemon juice not only encourages healthy digestion by loosening toxins in your digestive tract, it helps to relieve symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, burping, and bloating.
2. Cleanses your system.
It helps flush out the toxins in your body by enhancing enzyme function, stimulating your liver.

Lemons contain pectin fiber, which assists in fighting hunger cravings. I started to travel with lemon water lately and I’ve notice how much it cuts my appetite, whenever I feel a little hungry I just drink up. As we speak there’s a tall glass on my desk.
4. Keeps your skin blemish-free.
The antioxidants in lemon juice help to not only decrease blemishes, but wrinkles too! It can also be applied to scars and age spots to reduce their appearance, and because it’s detoxifying your blood, it will maintain your skin’s radiance.
