As the saying goes: “When life gives you lemons, you should add them to your water!” Well, that’s not quite how the saying goes, but make no mistake, the health and beauty perks of lemon water are certainly not a myth.
For example, research from highly credible sources like The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that something as simple as adding a few slices of lemon to your water each day can do your body very good – from boosting hydration, to soothing a sore throat and improving immune health, to promoting healthy digestion and weight loss, to flushing out toxins, to boosting collagen and protein production due to its rich content of Vitamin C.
All the above understood, when making lemon water you will want to first make sure that your lemon water is properly diluted. So as a general rule of thumb, you should use at least half a lemon (sliced) in 8 to 10 ounces of cold or warm water. Also, there are a few best practices for drinking lemon water that will help you get the most out of each squeeze. To learn more about those recommendations and best practices, take a look at the helpful infographic below for 5 Easy Tips on How to Drink Lemon Water the “Smart” Way.
