There is nothing as important as water. This is what we are mainly made of! And water is the next thing after air that keeps us alive. It is essential to control the amount of water you consume daily.
Experts say that what we need to feel good and healthy is to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. In the summertime the number of glasses may increase since we tend to sweat a lot more in hot weather conditions. The problem with most of us is that we drink liquids, such as soda, tea, and coffee. But these beverages dehydrate us even more. They quench our thirst only for a short period of time without hydrating our body and our inner organs start suffering. People get used to sweet drinks containing sugar or sweeteners, flavors and other chemicals that taste good but are extremely harmful. Water does not smell, it does not taste, either. This is why people keep forgetting to drink their water throughout the day. Squeeze some lemon to make plain water tasty and fragrant and you will see that drinking 8 glasses a day is not that difficult. Plus, there are other benefits of lemon water. Here they are:
1. Better Digestion
Lemon water is one of the safest ways to help your body get rid of toxins. Once your body is clean and detoxified, your digestive tract will start its work in a different, much better way. People whose digestive tract is not healthy often suffer from bloating, nausea, and heartburn. Lemon water solves the problem. Warm lemon water mixed with a drop of honey can be consumed by those who are trying to lose weight and often feel sweet cravings.
