Can lemon juice reduce belly fat?
Beginning your day with a glass of lemon juice can be one of the best remedies to eliminate belly fat. A stressed liver cannot burn fat effectively; lemon helps detoxify your liver and helps it function properly. Drinking warm water with honey and lemon can do wonders for your health in many other ways.

Lemon water is one of the very first detox water recipes created, and it seems to be everywhere you look on the Internet these days.

Besides being really yummy with its sweet and tangy flavor, lemon juice has many health benefits associated with it.

In this article, we will discuss the benefits of lemon water, explore how to make it, then we’ll supply you with some yummy lemon water recipes to get you started.

What is Lemon Water?

Lemon water is simply the juice of a lemon mixed with water.

It can be served hot or cold and is generally not sweetened, it all depends on your own personal preferences.

Special Tip: Lemon water is perfect to take with you and sip all day as a delicious, healthy, weight loss treat.

To make it easier to take on the go, I recommend a portable Fruit Infused Water Bottle. They’re worth the $10-20 investment in your health!

Benefits of Lemon Water

In addition to the many benefits of drinking water, like a faster metabolism, there are also specific benefits of drinking lemon water, (1)

Lemons contain flavonoids, which are plant pigments that are known to have strong antioxidant properties. That means they help protect your cells from damage. (23)

Lemons also contain important vitamins like Vitamin C and potassium. A diet rich in potassium can help lower your blood pressure, and studies have shown people who eat lots of potassium have up to a 27% lower risk of heart disease and strokes (456).

Key Point: Lemon are full of nutritious ingredients, especially vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant. It also contains potassium, which helps support heart health.

Here are 5 important benefits of lemon water:

#1. Assists with Weight Loss

How does water help you lose weight? Studies have shown that drinking water naturally boosts your metabolism, and drinking a glass of hot or warm lemon water in the morning has become a healthy daily habit for many people to assist with overall weight loss. (7)

And not only is it an effective diet water, it tastes wonderful, too.

Drink the juice of one lemon in one cup of warm water first thing in the morning (on an empty stomach) to increase your lemon water weight loss levels.

Key Point: Studies have shown that water naturally boosts your metabolism.

#2. Helps Aid Digestion

Acids in lemon water have been reported to slow the digestion processes, which helps you with better absorption of the nutrients passing through your system.

The slower absorption rate helps moderate insulin spikes and improves utilization of the available nutrients in your food.

Key Point: The acids in lemon water helps slow digestion, which increases nutrient absorption.

#3. Helps Cleanse Your Liver

Water is the key component of any detox diet plan, and a lemon water cleanse is a great way to ensure you drink lots of it.

In addition to the healthy benefits of lemon cleansing water, the enzymes may help stimulate liver functions and aid in the elimination of wastes from your body.

A lemon water cleanse will also suppress your appetite so you are more successful and have fewer cravings while on your lemon detox or cleansing plan.

Key Point: The enzymes in lemon water help stimulate liver functions, which aids in detoxifying your system.

#4. Boosts Your Immune System

Lemon water is a good source of vitamin C and other nutrients, which help in improving the strength of your immune system.

Vitamin C is one of the easiest ways to boost your immune system because it helps neutralize free radicals associated with aging and disease.

One lemon contains a whopping 187% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C. (8)

It also helps increase your energy levels due to the presence of other essential vitamins and minerals.

So next time you’re feeling less than great get some into your diet, your body will feel better faster and will help shake off some of that exhaustion that comes with the common cold and flu.

Key Point: Lemon water contains high amounts of vitamin C, which helps support a stronger immune system.

#5. Improves Your Skin Condition

The antioxidants in lemon juice not only help to reduce blemishes, but it also helps to minimize wrinkles, too.

It can also be applied to scars and age spots to reduce their visibility, and because lemon juice is detoxifying your blood, it will maintain your skin’s radiance.

We especially love how the vitamin C from naturally firms up skin, during weight loss exercise is key to toning up skin, but when you can’t make it to the gym, or you feel you need a little extra help with saggy skin turn to the firming powers of lemon water.

Key Point: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant found in lemons, which helps firm your skin.

How To Make Lemon Water

How To Make Lemon Water

It’s not difficult at all to make basic lemon water, you just need two ingredients: lemon and water.

Simply add the juice of one fresh lemon to warm or cold water.

You want fresh squeezed lemons for maximum results, don’t get those little squeeze bottles from the store, they have no nutritional value and most of them contain harmful preservatives and chemicals.

For time saving methods simply squeeze lemons and freeze the juices in an ice cube tray, then you can pop a cube in a glass or mug of water for a fast boost of vitamin C.

If lemon juice is too strong for you , make a more mild version, cut the lemon into thin slices and drop them in your water.

You can also try some of our lemon water recipes below, we added other yummy ingredients to keep your taste buds happy.

Cucumber Water: The World’s Most Popular Detox Drink

Cucumber water has been around for a very long time – years before the infused water craze began.

Water with cucumber has been served at day spas and health clubs all over the world for decades, mostly due to its health benefits and great taste.

Not only is this simple recipe yummy, but cucumbers look oh so pretty when sliced and placed neatly in a pitcher of water and ice.

In this article, we’ll discuss cucumber benefits, review the benefits of cucumber water, and then I’ve also included 5 different cucumber water recipes to add some variety and give you some recipe ideas.

What is Cucumber Water?

Also known as cucumber infused water or cucumber detox water, the basic cucumber water recipe is just two ingredients: water and cucumber.

But don’t let its simplicity fool you; it tastes great.

Special Tip: Cucumber water is perfect to take with you and sip all day as a delicious hydrating treat.

To make it easier to take on the go, check out our Recommended Fruit Infused Water Bottles or see our list of the Top 5 Best Seller Fruit Infused Water Bottles.

With one of these infuser bottles, you can refill the water over and over again and the flavor of the cucumbers will still infuse into the water. It’s worth the $10-20 investment in your health!

Cucumber Benefits

Cucumbers are one of the most underrated ingredients around, even though they have so many health benefits.

They’re made up of mostly water, which makes them a perfect component of a cooling detox drink.

They’re really low in calories and high in fiber, which makes them a great addition to your diet during weight loss because they’ll fill you up and help you feel more satisfied.

Among its many health benefits, cucumbers are a great source of vitamin B, rich in potassium and magnesium (which may help to lower blood pressure), and have even been known to fight cancer.

They contain an anti-inflammatory flavonol called “fisetin” which studies have shown to help improve brain health.

Cucumbers are a know antioxidant, and also contain polyphenols called lignans, which may help to lower your risk of certain types of cancer including ovarian, breast, and prostate cancer.

Is cucumber a fruit? Yes. Cucumbers are part of a gourd plant family called Cucurbitaceae and are considered a “cylindrical fruit”. They grow on vines and come in three main varieties: slicing, pickling, and burpless.

Benefits of Cucumber Water

There are a lot of health benefits of cucumber water. To start, water helps flush and detox your body, it keeps you feeling more full so you don’t eat as much, and even helps increase your metabolism.

If you’re trying to lose weight, drinking water is one of the easiest things you can do to give your efforts a boost.

Second, cucumbers are what’s known as a “superfood”, which basically means they’re very nutrient rich and good for you.

They also taste great with almost any fruit in fruit infused water recipes.

When you put these two healthy ingredients together, the cucumber water benefits are extraordinary.

How to Make Cucumber Water

Making cucumber water is pretty simple:

  1. Slice a cleaned, peeled (or unpeeled depending on your preference) cucumber into 1/2 inch slices.
  2. Combine cucumber slices in water, and type with ice. Allow to marinate for at least an hour. (For best results, allow it to marinate overnight in the refrigerator.)

The cucumber slices will float, so it’s important to top with ice to keep them submerged.

To avoid having to use ice, try purchasing a fruit infused water pitcher that holds the cucumber slices in an infusion chamber. They work great, the large pitchers look fantastic on a dinner table and encourage your family to drink more water, and the travel bottles help keep you hydrated all day long.

You can refill the pitcher or travel bottle several times before it starts to lose flavor.

You can even eat the cucumber slices if you like, but discard your batch after 24 hours.
