Lemons are citric fruits that are often used in cooking. They help give food a bit of zest and can really bring some dishes to life.

Usually very sour, lemon is not often used as a drink on its own but is often used to give drinks a bit more flavor. One such example is lemon water, and it also has various health benefits.

it is best to drink warm lemon water. Just take a fresh lemon and squeeze some into the water. How much you want to add is entirely up to you. You might want to squeeze the lemon into an empty cup first and then strain to prevent seeds and other items from getting into your drink.

Benefit #1: Boosts Immunity

All around us is a microscopic world of organisms that are too small to be seen by the naked eye. They live on our skin, in the air, and even on our food. For the most part, these organisms are quite harmless but there are some that can make us quite ill. The good news is that our immune system helps protect us from these.

As effective as it is, though, our immune system needs as much support from us as they can get. This includes eating the right foods, particularly those that are rich in vitamin C. The vitamin is well known for its ability to boost our immune system, and there is plenty of it in lemon water.
