4 Things You Should Know About Morning Lemon Water

Drinking water with lemon in the morning is part of many discussions in the last years, and almost every person tried this habit, at least for a short period.

However, there are still 4 uncleared questions which make people skeptical and wondered how this habit could have better results.

  1. How many lemons should I buy and consume?

Half a lemon daily in the water is enough. Regarding the quantity you could buy, 2 pounds is enough for 3 weeks. It’s important to keep the lemons in a fridge, because that way the lemons will stay fresh for a longer period.

  1. May I add sugar?

Of course NOT! The purpose of this habit is to cleanse the body and to feel better. Adding sugar will give the opposite effect. Some people couldn’t stand the tartness, so they add a spoon of honey, which has 64 calories. If you intake half a lemon with water, you intake only 10 calories. It’s up to you.

  1. How to protect the tooth enamel?

Some people believe that the lemon is harmful for teeth health. If you have sensitive teeth, try to use natural preparations and pastes, instead of expelling a particular type of food, more specifically the lemon. If possible, try to brush your teeth half an hour after drinking the lemon water or to rinse your mouth with big amount of water.

  1. What should I do if I don’t have time to drain the juice every morning?

The best alternative is to freeze the fresh juice into ice cubes. Then, all you have to do is to take one ice cube of lemon water and add it to a glass of water.
