Drinking warm lemon water is perfect for when you have a sore throat as it helps fight off the flu. Lemons have natural antibacterial properties such as citric acid, calcium, magnesium, Vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene (Strange, 2016). Now, it doesn’t have a direct impact on weight loss, rather it replaces any energy drinks you may be having, and provides you with the nutrients and minerals you need to lead an active lifestyle. The high fibre content also assists in your weight loss journey as it can offer satiety.

 

Vitamin C plays a huge role in many health benefits, mainly due to its antioxidant, anti-atherogenic, and anti-carcinogenic properties. It even helps support asthma and other respiratory symptoms, and it improves the uptake of iron in the blood which is vital for a strong immune system. (Organic Facts, 2018).
