Why a dash of lemon in your water could make you happier, healthier and even lighter

5 reasons to drink hot lemon water

1.Better Digestion
The citric acid in lemon can improve absorption of aluminium hydroxide. Drink it before you start your fast to also boost digestion.

2. Detoxify

Even though lemon is acidic, its combination with warm water wakes up the liver and flushes out toxins.

3. Soothe The Tummy
Had a big curry for iftar? Make yourself a warm cup of lemon water and sip slowly before dawn this Ramadan. The flavonoids in lemon juice will reduce acidity.

4. Support Weight Loss
Lemon juice is becoming a superhero natural remedy. This citrus liquid also contains pectin, a soluble fibre, that has been known to act on weight loss.

5. Cure Heartburn
Sipping on hot water with lemon and a spoonful of manuka honey balances the calcium and oxygen levels in the liver and instantly cures heartburn.
