Lemon water is High in Vitamin C
Lemon water is a powerhouse of vitamin C, defending your heath and boosting your immune system. Lemon water effectively fights off bacteria and harmful viruses from your body. You’ll notice less colds and illness. It’s important to drink lemon water every morning to maintain these great health benefits.
I have only been drinking lemon water for two weeks and I haven’t felt sick or sluggish. You usually feel tired or sluggish when you body is trying hard to fight off a cold or virus. Lemon water has boosted my immune system, I’m not tired during the day.
Lemon Water is High in Potassium
Potassium is a mineral that maintains your heart, brain, and more. If your body is low in potassium, you could hurt your long term health. Lemon water is a great source of potassium that will benefit your entire body and help you feel energized throughout the day. Most American’s don’t get enough potassium, especially if you eat out a lot and aren’t eating enough fruits and vegetables. Lemon water can be a convenient form of potassium to start your day.
Balance your PH levels with Lemon Water
Drinking lemon water is the top choice for balancing the body’s PH levels. You can go from a high acidic body to a neutralized balanced PH by drinking lemon water. You’ll reduce the acidity with alkaline. Keep in mind that you need to do this every day to gain the health benefits. If you could go one morning drinking lemon water instead of coffee, I promise you’ll love it. The lemon water helps “wake you up” and helps reduce inflammation and the high acidic content in your body. This leaves me feeling refreshed in the morning.
Lemon Water Reduces Inflammation
If you’re looking into an Anti-Inflammatory diet, lemon water should top the list. This type of popular diet helps reduce the acidity in your body. For example, coffee is very acidic and lemon water is very alkaline. It’s known that if your body is out of balance, either being too acidic or too alkaline, it causes health problems. Most Americans are too acidic that’s why I’m recommending lemon water as a great start in the right direction.
Natural Pain Reducing Drink
As mentioned above about inflammation, I want to talk about pain associated with inflammation. My significant other has many problems with pain because he has a titanium rod installed in his leg from a broken bone accident, he suffers with pain in his leg in the base where screws were installed. Ouch. He’s usually in need of ibuprofen in the morning to manage his pain. I told him to try the lemon water and he hasn’t needed his ibuprofen since drinking lemon water in the morning, every morning. He also refills his bottle of lemon water twice during the day. How incredible. He also couldn’t have ibuprofen because he’s having surgery soon and ibuprofen is a blood thinner. You can’t use ibuprofen before surgery for safety.
Cure Respiratory Diseases
Lemon water is amazing for treating and curing respiratory diseases. If you know anyone with asthma or someone who suffers with mild bronchial problems, please tell them about lemon water.

Since I’ve been drinking lemon water every day I noticed my little belly bloating has gone down. My abs look meaner and leaner too.

Basic Lemon Water Recipe
- Wash four lemons
- Pour 8 cups of purified water into a pitcher
- Thinly slice your lemons and add them to the water
- Stir and refrigerate up to two days
Lemon Water Recipe for Water Bottles
This is how I make my lemon water so I can easily take it with me in water bottles. This helps me refill and drink lemon water throughout the day at work.
This will make 2 days worth of lemon water to store in your refrigerator. Make lemon water every two days to keep it fresh!
- You will need 1 lemon and 2 bottles of purified water
- Cut the lemon in half and twice, making four slices.
- Cut off the ends – place them aside
- Cut the lemon slices into tiny triangles – each slice should be cut in half at least 5 times. (you may need to drink a sip of each water bottle to fit the lemon slices in)
- Place the lemon slices into the bottles of water
- Take the ends we set aside and squeeze the juice into the two bottles
- Place the caps back onto your bottles and give them a quick shake
- Place the lemon water in the refrigerator for at least three hours
You can refill your water bottle throughout the day and immediately drink because the lemons will still be in the bottle.
I love taking my cold bottle of lemon water with me on my drive to work. I drink it in the morning at work and it really has improved my health in these past two weeks. Please try drinking lemon water! You’ll love the benefits as much as I do! Please share my article or images on pinterest.

Hi Jen, thanks so much for an in depth article about lemon water! I started drinking it 5 days ago and didn’t think much of it (it’s part of a new health plan), and already I’m looking in the mirror and feeling my skin thinking, “wow!” I can’t believe how it looks and feels already.
Yay! That’s great news Cherie. Yes, my skin glows after drinking lemon water. My fiancé says it reduces his leg pain. Win win! Alkalize the body.
Hi! i lived here in the philippines, can I use Calamansi instead of lemon? it is more cheaper but also rich in vit c… pls reply
I recommend lemons because of the PH level.
What about lemon concentrate in bottles will that work also
I’m not sure if they put preservatives in those plastic lemon bottles I see at the store. I would only use fresh lemons. I have a lemon tree in my backyard and there’s no way I would ever use those concentrate bottles.
Hello Jen, Thanks for the information !
By the way, As i Live in India , what other things should i do to help improve my skin and fight against the Sun and pollution here ? Thanks
I recommend always protect your skin from the sun and wind. Wear hats, sunglasses or use an umbrella. Drink teas because they contain antioxidants. Moisturize the skin everyday, most important use a protective oil like rosehip seed or even coconut to keep a protective barrier on the skin, great for polluted air.
