We don’t use lemons nearly enough. Most of us only remember lemon juice when it’s time to bake something, and it’s certainly not a thing that could be associated with health or body care in any way. At best, we just use it as an agent to prevent our avocados and apples from browning, when in reality it can do much much more for us.

Asides from being the main ingredient in various DIY skin care recipes, lemon juice can be of major help when it’s included directly in your diet. For example, did you know that drinking a glass of water infused with lemon juice can improve your health immensely over a period of time? Simply squeeze a half of a lemon into a glass of cool water — don’t add any sugars to it —and drink as is.

By doing this every day you’ll be:

Providing yourself with numerous vitamins and nutrients, as well as energizing yourself for the day. For example, vitamin C improves your immune system, vitamin B helps with your energy levels, riboflavin helps in cell reparation processes and calcium, magnesium and phosphorus strengthen your bones and teeth.

This also extends to your body metabolism, since lemon water improves both digestion and the process of breaking down elements in the liver, improving the function of both.

It’s easy to see how you’ve been missing lemon water in your diet all this time, right?
