I’m a firm believer in taking care of your body and treating it with respect. If you want to look and feel healthy, then you need to act healthy! There’s no magical pill or anything of that nature. What I can say is that something comes close to a magic pill and that’s consuming lemon water. I’ve been drinking lemon water for years now and thankfully, it’s paid off quite a bit.
Before I get into the benefits which I’ve reaped by drinking lemon water all day, I want you to know all the benefits of doing so first. Yes, I’ll be getting into the lemon water detox and everything that goes along with it!
What Are The Benefits of Lemon Water?
Honestly, I don’t know where to begin here. There are so many benefits to drinking lemon water that I can’t even begin to tell you. I’m going to share about a dozen of the benefits that I can personally attest to having benefited from each one of them.
Most people look at this and think, it’s so simple, how can it be a healthy internal cleansing concoction? I start my day with this drink literally every morning and I wouldn’t change a thing about it. Some people have traded in their coffee for hot lemon water.

Natural or Concentrate?
The first thing that I want to cover is how important it is to go for real lemons versus lemon concentrate. Due to the fact that many natural vitamins and minerals get lost during manufacturing, you’ll want to stick with natural lemon only if you want to reap the benefits of them.
