One of the oldest rituals of ‘morning people’ worldwide is to have a warm glass of water with lemon first thing in the morning. It is the best way to get a lot of antioxidants, and multiple vitamins like B and C, and carbohydrates and potassium in your body. Quite a few people use it to reduce weight and everyone swears by this method. But only a few people know that it also helps improve immunity and digestion, while reducing your binge eating as it controls cravings.
And if all this wasn’t enough, lemon juice also happens to be extremely beneficial for the following 13 ailments:
1. Acne Treatment
