Lemon juice is commonly known for its digestive health benefits and as a weight loss aid. Antioxidants found in lemons can help cleanse the digestive system and liver, which can, in turn, help your body release toxins and shed extra pounds. Whether you’re on a weight loss regimen or not, adding lemon to your diet is a great way to lose or maintain weight

Lemons stimulates the metabolism and kicks your body into high gear. Rather than reaching for a cup of coffee in the morning, which does little in the way of benefiting your body, reach for a lemon juice shot instead. Not only does it give you an extra calcium boost in the morning, but it will turn on your digestive system and energize your whole body for the day ahead.

Get Alkaline !

A body that is alkaline is a body that is in perfect balance in terms of acidity. A body that is too acidic is toxic, and can cause all kinds of uncomfortable symptoms, from energy loss to acne to weight gain.  Simply adding a squeeze of fresh lemon juice makes your warm or cold water alkaline  which helps to  flush the body of toxin causing acidity and balancing pH levels in the body. When your body’s pH levels are in balance, you have more energy, clearer skin, and can maintain a healthy weight.
