2. Better hydration
Proper hydration is the key to good health. Generally, you should drink between 91 and 125 ounces of water a day. Some may come from food, but the rest must be intentionally drunk. Water is not very exciting to drink alone, and some people do not like the taste of running water.
Adding lemon to the water is thought to enhance the taste enough to encourage people to drink more and thus to hydrate better.
3. Get enough vitamin C
Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant with many health benefits. It can only be obtained through food because our body does not synthesize it alone. Receiving the recommended daily dose of Vitamin C can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and high blood pressure. Vitamin C is good for the skin and binds to free radicals that accelerate aging.
Vitamin C may even reduce the duration of the cold, but studies in this regard are contradictory. It certainly can’t hurt. Lemons are not the richest in vitamin C, but they are still a great source. Adding it to your water regularly can only help you reach the recommended daily dose of 60 mg daily.
