Have you heard of the benefits of lemon juice water? Let’s see how reliable this information is. Do nutritionists really recommend drinking lemon water, or are they just rumors? First of all, we note that ordinary clean drinking water itself is good for the body. Every person who does not suffer from serious illnesses is advised to drink 1-2 liters of water per day. Of course, the water must be really clean. That is why, for prevention, it is better to conduct a chemical analysis of the water that you drink regularly.
Why lemon water is good for you
The beneficial properties of water with lemon are known: it normalizes metabolism and even speeds up metabolism, lowers blood sugar, cleanses the liver and kidneys, and normalizes lymph flow. According to some reports, lemon juice even slows down the aging process somewhat, since it reduces high blood pressure and strengthens the immune system.
Doctors advise drinking water with lemon juice in the first days after the onset of a cold, as well as to treat poisoning or hiccups. Lemon with water even helps to bring down the temperature a little: for this you need to drink 200-300 ml of water with lemon juice before bed.
Why lemon water is harmful
You yourself know that lemon juice contains citric acid. True, the concentration of acid is usually very small, so if water with lemon has some kind of harmful effect on the body, then in very specific cases.
Citric acid is a corrosive acidic environment. It can damage the teeth at high concentration. So if you have dental problems, you shouldn’t consume lemon juice regularly to prevent erosion and enamel breakdown. However, even here there is a solution: you can drink water with lemon through a straw. This will save your teeth and still be able to drink a healthy and tasty drink.
Lemon juice water is not suitable for people with gastrointestinal problems. If you have increased acidity, then citric acid can only aggravate everything. There will be little benefit from it, but a lot of harm. So if you don’t want to get gastritis, drink plain water.
Citrus fruits, including lemon, are contraindicated for people who suffer from various forms of allergies. However, such patients usually know very well themselves that they should not drink lemon or orange juice. After all, otherwise you can quickly earn swelling or hives.
This list practically exhausts all the contraindications of water with lemon. All other people who do not suffer from dental disease, gastritis or allergies can be advised to drink clean drinking water with lemon juice. Let’s now discuss when is the best time to drink lemon water.
When is it better to drink lemon water
It is difficult to give a large number of recipes for water with lemon juice, because it all comes down to simply adding lemon to the water. But this is a very healthy drink, and it can be prepared quickly: you only need clean drinking water and lemon.
Above, we have already described how water with lemon is useful. Lemon contains a large amount of vitamin C, phytoncides and other useful microelements: carotene, thiamine, riboflavin, etc. At the same time, clean drinking water does not destroy these useful substances in any way, and they directly enter our body.
Nutritionists advise drinking lemon water on an empty stomach. Then this drink will have the maximum healing effect. For example, you can drink lemon water in the morning right after waking up. Thus, you will kill two birds with one stone: first, make up for the lack of water, and also take in the beneficial elements that are contained in lemon.
Remember that drinking lemon water after meals is not very beneficial. It is better to drink water 30-40 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner. In this case, you can add lemon juice to the water. It is very important that the water is clean, that is, it does not contain harmful impurities. If you are not sure about your tap water, you can order the delivery of clean drinking water from the “Vody Zdorovya” company. Do not prepare water with lemon in reserve: the substances contained in lemon juice quickly break down and lose their beneficial properties.
