I’m an avid drinker (of water of course) and was refreshing to learn a new spin on how to drink it. I was first introduced to the concept of drinking lemon water when I read an article on infusing water, After learning a few benefits of lemon water I started drinking a glass every morning, here are 5 benefits you didn’t know about.

2. BOOSTS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Think of your body like a car, Lemon juice is full of Vitamin C which is in this context our immune systems jumper cables. The level of vitamin C in your system is one of the first things to plummet when you’re stressed, which is why experts recommended popping extra vitamin C during especially stressful days.
3. REDUCES INFLAMMATION
If you make drinking lemon water a routine, it lowers the level of acidity in the body which is where disease starts, and removes uric acid in the body which is one of the causes of inflammation.
