8 Reasons to Start Your Day With Lemon Water

5. It helps detoxify the liver.
With more than 500 functions, the liver is a very busy organ. Its most important role is to filter blood of waste products, drugs, pesticides, and other poisons. The two-phase process needs bile to carry the neutralized toxins into the intestines for safe removal. Lemon juice is a powerful cholagogue, a substance that stimulates bile production and promotes the flow of bile into the small intestine. A morning glass of lemon water gently detoxifies the liver – and thus, the entire body.

6. It helps you lose weight.
The liver is an important fat-burning organ. It regulates fat metabolism, breaking down fats and shipping them out via the large intestine. A daily glass of lemon water stimulates fat loss and may also help rid your legs and other body parts of stubborn cellulite.

7. Better skin.
The detoxifying action of drinking lemon water will release impurities through every exit point (or detoxification channel), including skin. You may experience a mild bout of acne at first, but that will soon be replaced with healthy glowing skin.

8. Hydration.
Lemon makes water taste better, and if it tastes better, you’re likely to drink more of it. Plus, it’s virtually calorie-free. We recommend starting your day with a glass, but if you enjoy it, drink it throughout the day.
