We often hear health experts say that drinking a glass of warm water with lemon every day early in the morning is good for our health. Here’s why:

Water is extremely good for your health as it is the best way to keep the body hydrated, and it helps flush out harmful toxins.Lemon is a good source of many nutrients like calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and vitamins A, C and B-complex as well as pectin fiber, proteins and carbohydrates. Lemon’s citric acid and strong antibacterial, antiviral and immune-boosting powers also help keep you healthy.
To easily reap the benefits, just squeeze the juice from half a lemon into a glass of purified, lukewarm water. If you want, you can add a little honey too. Drink it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, and wait 30 minutes before eating your breakfast.

Here are the top 10 health benefits of drinking lemon water.

1. Improves Digestion
Several components in lemon stimulate your liver to produce more bile needed for healthy digestion. Also, lemon assists the digestive system in flushing unwanted materials and toxins out of the body.

A daily glass of warm lemon water helps relieve symptoms of indigestion, such as heartburn, belching and bloating.

It also prevents constipation and diarrhea by promoting smooth bowel functioning. The American Cancer Society recommends this healthy drink to cancer patients to help stimulate bowel movements.
