Improves Digestion

Lemons are high in fibers, minerals and vitamins that help to loosen the toxins in the digestive tract, and relieve symptoms of indigestion like bloating, constipation etc. Be sure to include the zest of the lemon (a good source of fiber) in your drink if you want to use it as a digestion aid.

Drinking lemon water is a safe way to neutralize excess acidity in the body, and maintain the right pH. To know your pH level, either ask your doctor or use pH strips to test your urine or saliva. If you have excess acidity, and you need to alkalize with lemon water, it’s advisable to get pH strips at home to enable you stay within the recommended range.
