Thanks to celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Miranda Kerr, Jennifer Aniston and Beyonce, the benefits of drinking hot water with lemon have become somewhat of a trend these days. However—not to show up my girl Jen An—hot water, lemon and I have been intimate since my college days.
Outside of me and celebrity detox fame, hear what experts have to say about the benefits of drinking this hot citrus latte.
- Helps Digestion – A big proponent of the hot water with lemon habit is that it flushes out your liver of toxins. Although acidic, lemon helps boosts your digestives track and its ability to process food.
- Creates a Healthy Glow – By helping improve digestion and ridding the body of toxins, lemon water can also lead to cleaner skin. It also contains Vitamin C which is needed for collagen in the production of smoother, healthy skin.
- Keeps You in Your Skinny Jeans – Researchers in Germany have found that drinking the combo in the morning can help boost metabolism.
- Gives Immunity – No, we are not talking about Top Chef here. Lemons contain Vitamin C and by drinking hot lemon water first thing in the morning it allows the body the chance to absorb these vitamins which directly can boost immunity.
