Restores pH Balance

It is important to maintain a slightly positive alkaline state in order to fight off cancer and other illnesses. Although acidic to taste, lemons are one of the most alkaline of foods and help to push our bodies to the required pH alkaline state of around 7.4.

Detoxification

Fresh lemon juice added to a large glass of water in the morning is a great liver detoxifier and cleanses the kidneys and the digestive system. It helps the body in the removal of toxins and provides you with a great overall detox.

Indigestion and Constipation

Lemon has been proven to aid in digestion as it keeps bad bacteria at bay. Add a few drops of fresh lemon juice on your food, and it will aid in digestion. Or drink the juice of 1 freshly squeezed lemon in a glass of lukewarm water after each meal. The lemon acid stimulates the production of stomach acid.

Lemons also help with regularity. Add the juice of one lemon to warm water and drink first thing in the morning.

Weight Loss

Adding lemons to your water can make you feel fuller as well as reduce the development of Type 2 Diabetes. Lemons contain pectin, a soluble fiber that has been shown to help with weight loss. Also, lemons can literally slow down the absorption of sugar into the body.
