  • Rich in Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that can help treat scurvy and potentially avoid colds. While there is still debate on whether vitamin C helps avoid colds, it has been shown to shorten colds for individuals.

  • Good for Skin

There may even be some evidence that vitamin C helps with skin health. It's a vitamin closely linked with collagen, which helps with skin elasticity. There are also flavonoids in citrus, which are thought to help with skin issues.

  • Boosts Immune System

Folate and vitamin C found in lemons can potentially boost your immune system. If you're concerned about getting a cold as the temperatures change, consider adding lemon water to your diet.

  • Aids Digestion

Many people have added lemon water to their morning routine, as it potentially helps with digestion. Usually, people will drink it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. It has been shown to help slow down the digestion aging process when people drink lemon polyphenols (antioxidants found in lemons).

  • Prevents Kidney Stones

Lemon juice's acidity can help keep kidney stones away, as it can break down calcium buildup. Additionally, drinking sufficient water may help wash out kidney stones.
