I have been drinking lemon water since I pregnant my first baby. I usually did not like to drink or eat anything that taste sour. However, for my first pregnancy, I craved sour food, fruits, and drink. So, I squeeze some lemon juice into my warm water cup and drink in the morning and that made mine morning sickness gone during my first trimester of pregnancy as well. I see some benefits of lemon water and I continue drink it every morning until now.
Lemon is a natural energizer, it hydrates and oxygenates the body so it feels revitalized and refreshed. Also, drinking warm lemon water in the morning is natural way helping loose weight, helps brighten skin tone, and detox liver. Preparation is really simple and easy in just a minute.
