At the last day of Ramadan, after a month of fasting for 18 hours a day, Alina Islam, a certified nutritionist wrote a short post about the vegetated state she was in for this whole month and what she was dreaming about eating. The fasting period left her feeling like a lemon, and the funny thing is that her most shared advise is drinking lemon water.
On the internet you can find hundreds of recipes and posts regarding lemon water; Alina is adding and sharing another one from her personal experience because many people don`t have a clue about the benefits of regular consumption of this drink.
What you should do is boil some water, let it cool on room temperature, and then add some freshly squeezed lemon juice in it (from half or ¼ of a lemon). Drink the lemon water on an empty stomach, before breakfast.
The benefits from consuming lemon water:
- Helps constipation
- Removes acne and skin marks

- Helps reduce weight (for better results, add some cayenne pepper to speed up metabolism)
- Helps with constipation
- Removes fat
- The inflammatory properties of the drink help relieve joints pain
- Restores pH balance
- Helps with indigestion
- Restores electrolytes lost during exercise
Regular consumption of lemon water will bring incredible benefits to your overall health. In no time, your skin will be radiant and the entire organism will be in better condition than ever.
