Benefits of Lemons
Hot lemon water helps stimulate the body’s immune system and prevents illness in the most natural way possible. This is because lemons are rich with Vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that plays an important role in causing resistance against many diseases. Antioxidants can prevent or slow the damage that free radicals cause to the cells in our bodies.
Free radicals are waste substances that are generated from our bodies and are unstable and highly reactive to our cells. If the body becomes overwhelmed with its ability to regulate free radicals, a condition known as oxidative stress will occur.
Oxidative stress has been linked to inflammatory diseases, heart disease, cancers, and diabetes.
The hot temperature of the water, along with the Vitamin C will help in reducing coughs and loosening the thickness of mucus-forming bacteria. Another benefit to drinking hot lemon water is that it can be a natural aid to helping you regulate, or even lose some weight, if that is a goal of yours.
The timing of your intake can help boost your results too, so it’s important to have a strategic approach to your consumption. Drinking hot lemon water in the morning is the best time for losing weight.
This is because warm water raises your body temperature, which increases your metabolism. Your metabolism is naturally higher in the morning as opposed to later in the evening. So it’s best to begin your day with an extra boost and start burning more calories early.
