The most popular morning beverage on the internet right now is lemon water, however, is it truly as advantageous as some claim?
“It’s not entirely clear where this hack originated, but drinking lemon water is an old folk remedy thought to have evolved over time,” Melissa Mitri, RD, a Connecticut-based registered dietitian and nutrition writer, told Health.
Juicing and slicing a lemon into a glass of water is a fairly easy way to make lemon water. Lemon water is another excellent way to acquire a citrus flavour without adding any sugar, and it may be served hot, cold, or at room temperature.
While lemon water isn't exactly a new craze, its appeal has grown significantly in the last ten or so years.
Aside from being a fantastic way to increase your daily fluid intake, lemons are also a wonderful source of antioxidants, vitamin C, and trace levels of magnesium, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, and other nutrients. Experts concur that not everyone will benefit from the mixture's weight-loss properties.
“Lemon water is not necessarily better than regular water for weight management,” Samantha Turner, MPH, RDN, registered dietitian and owner of OakStone Health and Nutrition, told Health.
“There is no research out there that shows lemon water is superior to plain water for weight loss,” added Mitri. “Drinking more water, in general, is linked to enhanced satiety, weight loss, and a healthier metabolism.”
The acidic properties of lemon juice have been associated with a beneficial impact on the glycemic response, or the body's response to carbohydrate consumption in terms of blood glucose fluctuations.
