You should always start the day out with a cup of warm water and the juice of half a lemon,according to the experts,  because the benefits are just too good to ignore. Lemons are known to have many health benefits, such as diuretic, digestive aid, benefit to liver enzymes and treatment for urinary tract infections. Lemons are also known for their use as a weight loss aid because lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser.
If you have minor upper respiratory illness, then you can warm lemon water with honey and it will help loosen congestion. Lemon juice assists in the destruction of certain toxins within the gastrointestinal tract.

Lemon added to water is a diuretic, assisting the body in getting rid of extra fluid. This process rids the body of wastes, lowers blood pressure and cleanses the kidneys and urinary system, including the ureters and bladder. In a study of Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, the findings show that lemon is a great aid against inflammatory polyarthritis and arthritis.
Lemons are rich in vitamin C and flavonoids that work against infections like colds and flues. Lemons have been known through the centuries for their ability to aid the body to fight diseases.
Lemon juice, being a natural antiseptic medicine, can participate to cure problems related to skin, such as acne and eczema problems. Lemon juice is said to give a glow to the skin, which makes your skin look healthier.

    Oh wow. I am sold!! I also have a lemon tree but the lemons are huge and pithy and ‘they bite’ so we leave them for the cockatoos. Maybe they know the health benefits:) I will go buy some instead. Would limes be just as good, do you know?

      Lemon and lime are very similar, but lemon contains a little bit more nutrition. Otherwise they are very similar so you can use lime instead of lemon.
