Drinking Lemon Water In The Morning Has Many Health Benefits

Our bodies can become quite acidic if our diet is highly processed and we don't eat enough fresh fruit and vegetables. By drinking warm lemon water in the morning it will help your body become more alkaline and result in having less health problems in the future.

Making lemon water is very easy and it is best taken first thing in the morning. Start by making a jug full so you can drink it through out the day. By adding half a lemon or lime to a liter of water everyday you will be removing toxins from the body. You can easily add more lemon or lime juice if desired.

You might want to look out for lemons that are organic, which do not contain any pesticides on the skin. Finding these types of lemons will ensure that you are not absorbing harmful chemicals into your body.

Sugar Free Lemonade.

Lemonade is a great drink to make during the hot summer months, but can contain a whole lot of sugar, which is not good for your health. By adding a sugar alternative such as stevia, you can still enjoy a glass of lemonade.

Stevia is a herb that is very sweet and is three hundred times sweeter than normal sugar. It also has no calories which is great for people who are trying to lose weight. This herb is also beneficial for candida suffers and diabetics. You can buy it in a powder form and can last a long time as you only use a very small amount.

Here is a recipe that I usually follow to make my sugar free lemonade.

Sugar Free Lemonade Recipe.

1 - 2 organic lemons.


Chilled Filtered Water

Ice Cubes


Wooden Spoon


Firstly squeeze lemon juice into jug, you can use a juicer or squeeze it by hand, then you can start to add 1/4 teaspoon of stevia to the jug, you may want to add more depending on the sweetness that you prefer. Then add filtered water to the jug, followed by ice cubes. Remember to give it a stir with a wooden spoon and enjoy.

As you can see, there are many benefits of drinking water with lemon to cleanse the body and improve overall health.

      Is it true that drinking lemon water regularly is not good for a lady that has not given birth, that it will affect her womb. How true is this?

      Lemon water has helped me maintain my weight in the past and I too use and like stevia. I didn't know you could make your fresh lemon water ahead of time and put it in the fridge, but I will have to try it. Great hub - thanks for sharing!
