My new Obsession - Water with Lemon

By 17:35 ,

I've never been a big tea, fizzy drink or squash drinker (although I do love coffee), but after seeing so many people infusing water with fruits over the last few years I thought that would be something I would enjoy. So for the past few months I have been having lemon in my water and really enjoying it!

The best part about lemon water is that you can have it hot or cold. I tend to have a mug of hot water with lemon in the morning and evening and enjoy it with ice throughout the day.

Not only is this a great flavour but it is believed to have health benefits too! I find that this drink is every addictive and I tend to have about 8-10 glasses a day! I have found that my skin has been loving this and although I've never suffered with spots, I have found my discolouration and blotchy areas are reduced. This could be down to the lemon or maybe because I have been enjoying it so much my body has become more hydrated through a higher water intake. Either way I have noticed a difference and the benefits of enjoying drinking water.

Other believed benefits of Lemon water are:

  • Aids digestion
  • Boosts immune system due to vitamins
  • Detoxifying your body 
  • Helps weight loss by curbing cravings
  • Lemons are high in potassium
As I am not a health expert I do not know how valid these claims are. However, having lemon water is certainly better than grabbing a bottle of cola or high sugar drinks. It also tastes much more interesting than pain water and if you squeeze a little lemon juice in sparkling water, it tastes like a sharp lemonade! What could be better!
