The Benefits of Lemon Water

I received a question on our Facebook page about the benefits of adding lemon slices to your drinking water. Since I didn't really know the answer off the top of my head, I did some research. Here's what I found out:

Adding lemon slices to your drinking water can be beneficial for a few reasons, but none of them are very earth-shattering!

The benefits of adding lemon to your water are:
  • Better flavor - if you aren't particularly fond of water, and adding lemon slices help you drink more of it, then the benefit is obvious - more hydration!
  • Vitamin C - lemon juice has vitamin C in it, so adding it to your water increases your intake.
  • Weight loss - this one is sort of a stretch, but if you switch out regular soda or fruit juice for lemon water (or ANY water), you'll save a lot of calories.

Overall, adding lemon to your water doesn't hurt anything. As long as you are drinking water, keep it up!
