Lime-Water-PhotosAdopting healthy habits like eating healthful foods and exercising can seem difficult, but sometimes it can be quite easy. There are some health tips and wellness habits we can easily change in a day’s time to improve our health absolutely. Things like drinking water with lemon are easy to implement and can provide many health benefits.

In addition to offering mind-boosting hydration, lemon water provides immune-boosting vitamin C and antioxidants. It is a great way to wake up and an excellent way to wind down your day. It’s low in calories and is a good source of potassium and pectin. Perhaps best of all, lemon water is easy to make and lemons are easy to find.

Benefits of drinking warm lemon water include:

1. Immune-boosting benefits of vitamin C help ensure your body can fight off illness.

2. Despite lemons being acidic, they can help keep your pH balance in check.

3. Pectin fiber is great for your colon and digestive health.

4. Encourages the production of bile.

Adding warm lemon water to your daily routine is a small and simple step towards better health. It doesn’t require any expensive additions or restrictions, merely adding a tasty fruit to your daily hydration.
