Flush out unwanted materials in the body
By drinking warm lemon water, the organs that detox your body are as follows:
- The skin removes accumulated crystal waste products through sweating
- Through exhalation, the lungs rid the body of carbon dioxide, a byproduct of breathing
- The lymphatic system, part of the body’s circulatory system, helps rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials
- The kidneys filter out excess salt and waste from cell metabolism, in addition, to regulating water fluid levels
- The liver inactivates and removes substances we ingest, including food additives, harmful minerals, toxic medication, and excess hormones
- The colon, also known as the large intestine, rids the body of leftovers from digestion in the form of solid waste.
Relieve tooth pain
As per medical research drinking warm lemon water relieve tooth pain to some extent but it may also cause enamel erosion if taken regularly. I recommend diluting the lemon juice with a full 8 ounces of water to lessen the acidity. You can minimize risk of enamel erosion by drinking juice through a straw so it bypasses your teeth.
After drinking the acidic lemon water, rinse your mouth with regular water as soon as possible. Alternatively you can chew sugar-free gum after drinking lemon water: this helps you produce more saliva, which helps neutralize the acidity in your mouth. Never brush your teeth for one hour after consuming lemon water.

If warm lemon juice water mixed with honey is taken regularly early morning, the overweight can be reduced. You can lower the glycemic index of a meal by 20-40% just by adding a few teaspoon of lemon juice to your meal. warm lemon juice also lowers the insulin response to carbohydrates, and slows down the time it takes a meal to leave your stomach – key to dropping weight.
