I have been reading that drinking lemon water every day has health benefits. (Digestive, loads of vitamins etc) does anyone do this and does it work?

Does this mean, water with a slice of lemon or is it something that you buy pre-made? I am not a big water drinker, but can handle it better with lemon. I love lemon!

You squeeze 1/2 a lemon into warm water and drink it every morning preferably 15 mins before you eat.

Drinking this is supposed to help your digestive issues including heartburn, help your lymph system, boost your immune system and keep your skin clear!

It should be warm if you want it to help flush out your system.

If it is cold it will sit in your stomach....or at least that is what I've read.

I do love LEMONS!

It really does help but watch for the teeth! Lemons are actually alkaline once they hit your stomach but they are acidic (obviously) on the teeth.

Can you put sugar in it?

Cold lemon water sounds better than warm lemon water to me...

Dh does while he's dieting (only God forbid, don't call it dieting!{insert eyeroll blinkie here} It's only to be referred to as "cutting back for awhile."

He says it really helps.

You get use to the warm water. I know it sounds weird but it's almost like drinking herbal tea every morning.

I have been doing it for years. 8 oz of hot water and 2 tbls of lemon juice. Seems to start my day off better.

My urologist ordered me to add lemon juice to my water several times a day to help prevent the formation of kidney stones. I am so sick of lemon, but it's worth preventing the pain! I've been doing it for 2 years and so far, so good!

The acid in the lemon juice isn't good for your enamel. My dentist told me to rinse well after drinking lemon juice and I should be okay.

I love warm water with lemon.

Styxgrl-I would add sugar. I know it seems like it would make it better but I think the sugar would counteract the benefits of just having the lemon water. That's just my personal opinion based on no science or facts.

I do. Everyday
I have a Meyer Lemon tree so it makes it easier for me to have lemons all the time

When I was doing the 17 Day Diet about a year ago, drinking a cup of hot lemon water was part of it. I did it every morning. It is supposed to help with digestion. I did loose a good bit on this diet. I attribute the lemon water as part of it.

Does it have to be fresh lemons or can it be lemon juice from a bottle?
