Do you want the secret to a flatter stomach?
It’s simple… LEMON WATER!
Lemon water has been around for ages, yet people fail to realize its tremendous benefits to your overall health. For starters, lemons are filled with so many nutrients like vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and fiber. Basically, a lot of good stuff for your body. Adding lemon to your water gives a new twist to staying hydrated throughout the day. I have listed some of the benefits of lemon water below. Pay attention to them as these simple benefits can help kick-start your life into a healthy direction (:
1. Flattens your Tummy
DISCLAIMER: Drinking lemon water will not instantly flatten your tummy, however overtime adding in consistent workout regime and clean diet to drinking lemon water everyday will help you lose weight. Why? Lemons have pectin fiber in them, which assists in fighting your hunger cravings.
2. Gives you energy
Lemon water gives your body energy as soon as it enters your digestive tract. In fact, research shows that the scent of lemons has a calming effect, too.
3. Keeps your skin acne-free
The antioxidants in lemon water decreases your pimples. When you add baking soda and lemon juice together you’re creating your own skin care regime as the two together works wonders for your face. Applying this combination to scars and dark spots will help in reducing their appearance giving your skin a radiant glow.
4. Helps with digestion
Drinking lemon water loosens the toxins in your digestive tract, so if you’re “backed up” drink a little bit of lemon water and your system will get back to normal in a jiffy. In addition, lemon water helps to relieve symptoms of indigestion like heartburn, burping and bloating.
5. Freshens your breath
Smelly breath? Don’t worry just drink lemon water. Be careful however, with brushing your teeth immediately after drinking lemon water due to the citric acid, which can erode teeth enamel.
