By adding some lemon water to your regular routine, you may find that you have an easier time fending off illness thanks to lemon's immune system-boosting properties.
"One lemon provides about 20 milligrams of vitamin C, which is about 20% of the daily recommended amount," "Vitamin C is helpful for the immune system and acts as an antioxidant."
According to 2012 research published in the journal European Urology, an estimated 8.8% of adults will experience kidney stones in their lifetime.
"If you have certain types of kidney stones—oxalate kidney stones—the citrate in lemon water will help break up the stones and help to dissolve them," Galvin says.
"Drinking lemon water in the morning acts as a laxative when you drink it warmed," says Trista Best, RD, a dietitian
"Hydration itself improves skin quality. You can buy all the creams and serums, but if you aren't hydrating from the inside out
you'll never get the optimal skin results you're looking for. When your skin is adequately hydrated, it can keep your skin plump and prevent signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles,"
According to a 2017 review of research published in the journal Nutrients, the vitamin C found in lemons can also promote collagen synthesis, helping your skin look younger and healthier over time.
