We all know that many people around the world drink lemon water – first thing in the morning, immediately after they wake up. But, unfortunately there are also many people who can’t stand the (sour) taste. But, that’s a bad thing, because the super-healthy lemon is loaded with healthy nutrients and it can provide many health benefits. Just take a look at the article below and find out more about this.
The experts also say that you should drink lemon water every day, because lemon juice is loaded with antioxidants, protein, vitamins B and C, flavonoids, phosphorus, potassium, carbohydrates and volatile oils. This super healthy juice has many properties, such as: antibacterial, antiviral and immune-building properties. It will also help you boost your immune system and fight infection due to high levels of bioflavonoids, pectin, limonene, citric acid, magnesium, calcium and vitamins.
