I’ll try this first, as the pain is still on its first onset though its been five days now that I noticed the thickening of the joint (base of the left thumb). Sometimes, the thumb won’t move especially upon waking up in the morning. I plan to consult a physician actually this morning, however, after I’ve read this article, I guess I have to try something herbal first. I’ll inform you of the outcome maybe after a week. Thank you very much!

  • I drink warm water with lemon in the afternoon after lunch and not in the morning, is this okay too? I just can’t skip my coffee early in the morning it’s a habit.

  • Is it possible to lose weight by drinking warm water with sliced lemons everyday?

  • Yes the Kaffir lime tree would have a very similar effect as lemon.

  • I would only drink the lemon water in the morning and once more in the evening but not all day. That could have a negative effect on your teeth.

  • Antibiotics can upset the gastrointestinal track. I would consider taking Probiotics. The lemon water could irritate if there is inflammation present.

  • Yes the lemon water has Vitamin C which is beneficial for the kidneys.

  • That it wonderful. Lemon is alkalinizing in the body.

  • No you don’t have to boil it to a high temperature. It is more pleasant to drink warm not cold.

  • If it is pure fresh squeezed lemon it would work but usually bottled juice contains added sugar and preservatives so it would not be the same as fresh squeezed.

  • I would not suggest store bought lemon juice. If you were to fresh squeeze it and keep it in the fridge be sure to drink it within the same day.

  • I would suggest using a straw to drink the lemon water. Your teeth may be low on minerals so very sensitive.

  • No, the peel is good for you as well. Just make sure they are organic so you are not getting pesticides from the skin.

  • The best time seems to be in the morning on an empty stomach.

  • Every one is different so just get started and see how it works for you.

Pectin in lemon juice reduces bloating nausea and pain. Lemon juice reduces cholesterol formation in liver.

  • Yes, I would not drink it, you may have some inflammation in the stomach.

  • There must be something else going on unless you are intolerant to lemon. Lemon would not cause kidney stones.

  • Is Lemon water good for Fatty Liver ?

  • Hi, thanks for good info. I just began lemon water. Bought some lemon juice but later researched and found it is high in sodium. However, I mix it with water thus cutting down the 550mg per cup on the label. May move to squeeze own lemons. Question: I also learned that chicken bone broth is good. Wondering how soon after lemon water I should take the bone broth? thanks

  • I completely agree with cleansing the digestive system. I visit my daughter every other month and she always starts her morning with a cup of lemon juice (with 1/2 cup of orange for flavoring). I do it also and by the second day I have the best bowel movement. Never knew I could.

  • That’s great news! Thanks for sharing.

  • You must use fresh squeeze lemons. I would suggest lemon juice in the morning and chicken/ bone broth in the evening. In order to make bone broth whether from chicken, fish or beef you need to gently simmer the bones for at least 12 hours, do not use store bought/package. A crock pot is great for doing this as you can leave it on low over night.

  • Yes, definitely!

  • Absolutely not!

  • I would drink the lemon water first and them sip a couple of liters of water throughout the day.

  • Yes, you could use lime instead of lemon.

  • Lemon may help by reducing acidity in the body. Often still muscles are from too much acid. You could also try some magnesium to relax the muscles.

  • I would suggest 1 cup in the morning is sufficient. I would not drink it all day long.

  • Yes, you can drink it in the evening instead of the morning. In the morning it helps to wake the body up and get things moving.

  • I am drinking lemon juice first thing in the morning empty stomach for more than 15 years and know its benefit.

  • It seems there are more questions than answers here. Well, lemon is one of the most popular and versatile citrus fruit. Lemon (Citrus lemon) is a species of small evergreen tree in the flowering plant family Rutaceae. The tree’s yellow fruit is used for culinary and non-culinary purposes in Uganda and throughout the world. Lemons are a rich source of vitamin C, providing 64% of the Daily Value in a 100 g serving. Lemon fruit is a gift from God! Lemon juice is an effective way to reduce weight because it increases the body’s metabolic rate. Lemon water is simply the juice from lemons mixed with water. NB: lemon water is one glass of water mixed with the juice from half a lemon. Some people are asking if lemons should be diluted or not before consumption. Lemons are a popular fruit that people from different corners of the world use in small quantities with water (warm water is better) with herbs and spices. They are rarely consumed alone, due to their intense, sour flavor. Lemons are vitamin C rich citrus fruits that enhance your beauty, by rejuvenating skin from within bringing a glow to your face. Other health benefits of drinking warm lemon water is that it paves the way for losing weight faster, once more, lemon is an excellent and rich source of vitamin C, an essential nutrient that protects the body against immune system deficiencies. It balances to maintain the pH levels in the body. Lemons contain pectin fibre which is very beneficial for colon health and also serves as a powerful antibacterial. It is also a great source citric acid, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. It helps prevent the growth and multiplication of pathogenic bacteria that cause infections and diseases. It helps reducing pain and inflammation in joints and knees as it dissolves uric acid. Drinking warm lemon juice early in the morning helps flush out toxins and aids digestion and encourages the production of bile. Additionally, lemon water contains other beneficial substances, and is a source of plant compounds called flavonoids. These flavonoids have antioxidant properties that appear to help protect your cells from damage. Rinse your mouth with clean water after drinking a glass of lemon juice. In case you are allergic to lemon juice, do not drink it. If it gives you pain, do not take it. Overall, lemon is good for your health. More importantly, I thank God, who created the lemons for us. And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food (Genesis 1:29).

  • I have been drinking 1 glass of warm lime water with 1 tsp raw organic honey from beginning of last year. To my stunned surprise, I didn’t fall even little sick also with cold and cough for one time also throughout the entire year. That is a record for me as in the last 25 years, I have been unfailingly, regularly falling sick with Bronchitis cough and cold at least 2 to 3 times per year , as I have a weak, compromised immune system. But after taking this mixture quite regularly for whole of last year, I came right to the December month without falling even once sick also with that terrible Bronchitis , or even with ordinary cough and cold also. My weight has also remained stable at a lower value without going up.

  • Just curious as to why you don’t mention the benefits of lemon juice in battling kidney stones. My doctor recommended this after 2 severe attacks. I have been drinking lemon juice for the last 15 years with no kidney stone recurrence.
    Also why do you recommend drinking it warm? Does being chilled diminish its effectiveness?

  • Hi Marlene, Will boiling the water first and adding the fresh squeezed lemon destroy any of the nutrients because the water is boiled? Tks

  • I noticed slight vagin*l bleeding after drinking lemon water, why is this happening? Can somebody enlighten me? 🙁

  • Since the 28th of January, I have been drinking the warm water, a dash of apple cider vinegar,1/2 fresh squeeze lemon juice and honey and it is delicious. I have experience less inflammation and better elimination. I have changed my eating habits. I feel so good. I am glad I started. I will continue.

  • I don’t understand why the lemon juice needs to be warm. Doesn’t the stomach make the temperature equal to that of the body once it’s been there for a few seconds (as long as your not chugging it down)?

    Also, why fresh squeezed? Organic lemon juice that isn’t pasteurized isn’t any different, is it? Perhaps it has a tiny difference because it’s freshly squeezed but considering the cost (60 cents each for organic) and inconvenience of using whole lemons makes the alternative much more appealing, to me.

    I drink lemon juice all day, every day along with my psyllium husk capsules I take every three hours. Trying to find time at work to squeeze lemons isn’t practical.

  • A really good article…just one question what would be the best time in the morning to consume it for optimal effects..I wake up at 4am btw.

I would not suggest drinking lemon water all day long, morning or morning an evening is sufficient. Psyllium is best before bed or first thing in the morning half an hour before food. I do find psyllium is better with warm water.

  • Hi Marlene
    Thank you for sharing this very important information. Yes God is awesome He has supplied us with all of our needs. We either choose to use it or ignore it. Thank you for your patience in replying to repetitive questions. I had started using lemon in my water way before we could Google anything and I would get the burning sensations in my stomach, so I stopped. Recently I started using lemon and water again. I googled the subject and found your article on how to use it properly. This is my 3rd day of using it and already I am seeing a great difference in my skin tone. I rinse my mouth out with water immediately after drinking the warm lemon water and this helps to take away the sensitivity in my teeth. Thank you and may God bless you!

My best solution has been to ensure I drink plenty of water (still do). But I started drinking hot lemon water (I call it lemon tea) every morning and I have BMs every day, I’ve never had that! And then all of a sudden I realized I’m not having the body pain I’ve been having as a 8hour a day desk worker, (Hatha yoga stretching, helps but I’m not consistent) I’m consistent and I enjoy starting my day with lemon tea and the benefits are life altering! It’s only been about 3weeks but it’s my new way of life! I expect it will only get better and better!

  • Thank you so much for a great article and for taking the time to answer everyone’s questions. My one quick question which hasn’t been directly asked….what about using lemon essential oils? Could I use a couple of drops instead of a fresh lemon?

  • What if I slice the lemon into peices without peeling the back, and boil it for like 10-15 minutes will it still produce a positive result?

  • Hi Faith
    Once you boil food, fruit, vegetables, etc, you change the molecular structure and benefits. So boiling your lemon slices will definitely impact your results. If you like your morning drink to be hot, we recommend that you boil the water first and then add your lemon slices.

  • By starting your morning with a cup of coffee, you will have already increased your body’s level of acidity and dehydration. This will definitely impact the benefits compared to starting your day with lemon water.

  • Warm lemon water helps relieve morning sickness and is safe during pregnancy when taken in moderation. Excessive lemon intake could cause heartburn, dental problems, and, if on medication, could result in drug interactions. It is always best to check with your obstetrician.

  • Lemon water is very healthy but if taken in excess, lemon can cause dental problems, heartburn, and can conflict with medication.

  • Organic unpasteurized honey is healthy but it is still sugar. Sugar will never help one lose weight. Your best bet is to begin each day with warm lemon water, eating a healthy diet of good quality protein, fruit and vegetables, 8 – 10 glasses of water, limiting your grains, starches and sugar.

  • We highly recommend that you see your family physician to discover the source of your pain. Kidney stones and liver problems, if that indeed is your issue, can be very serious and should not be self-medicated.

  • The problem with this is that lemon can conflict with some medication so we recommend that you discuss this with your doctor and/or pharmacist before adding this to your daily regime.

  • Thanks Vicki. That is a great testimonial for others on our site. Thank you for sharing!

  • Drinking warm lemon water can be very beneficial but is not a cure for any disease or serious condition. We always recommend that you be under the care of a medical practitioner when dealing with such issues.

  • Drinking warm lemon water cannot take the place of prescribed medication. Changing your diet, lifestyle, stress levels, and adding exercise, meditation, etc will all benefit your body and well-being. The source of your thyroid imbalance needs to be addressed and monitored by a medical professional. The thyroid plays a major role in regulating many functions of the body and is a vital hormone gland.

  • Thanks Ashley. Great advice!

  • For the benefits suggested in this article, it is important to use real lemons and warm, clean water taken first thing in the morning before coffee, tea, or food. It can’t hurt to do this in the evening unless you are consuming an excess of lemons throughout the day.

  • From what we know, warm lemon water in the morning should not affect your calcium levels but it is best to check with your medical practitioner. Please note, lemons are a rich source of many vitamins and minerals including calcium.

  • Since you are not boiling the lemon in the water, it should not affect the vitamin c content, and if it does, that effect should be minimal.

  • Your best benefits are derived from having warm lemon water first thing in the morning. It is a great way of rehydrating after many hours of sleep. We would recommend that you start with the warm lemon water followed by your litre of bulk water as your body requires. Pushing too much water into your body at one time can negatively impact your kidneys and/or bladder. Honey is still sugar so may alter the benefits.

  • Lemon juice with hot water first thing in the morning helps in bowel movements

  • Hi Divya
    Everything I read tells me that warm lemon water is beneficial for morning sickness BUT we never advise anyone to defy doctor’s orders and, remember, we are each unique and react differently. Try having the warm lemon water mid morning, so not on an empty stomach. If it causes vomiting, then lemon water may not be for you at this time. Wishing you a very healthy baby!

  • Hi Geeta
    Warm lemon water can be good for your hair internally as well as externally.

  • Hi Debbie Particularly if you are using the skin, please make sure that you are using only organic lemons. Otherwise, as long as you aren’t boiling the lemons, go for it!

  • Drinking warm lemon water will help alkalize the body and cancer causes the body to be extremely acidic. Lemon water would be only a tiny piece of the puzzle of things that could improve your body’s terrain if cancer has been diagnosed. It would not be considered a “cure”.

  • No problem, Safaa!

  • Hi Sharon
    The first thing is to see your doctor. Are you hypothyroid? Your thyroid is only one factor that can stop you from losing weight. Once thyroid issues have been ruled out, you may wish to see a Registered Nutritional Consultant. Check out healthhouse.ca in Markham, ON

  • i drink warm lemon water every morning on an empty belly but i don’t see changes to my belly,am i doing it wrongly or is it that different people react differently to it?

  • Hi Hannat
    Drinking warm lemon water is a great way to improve your health. If your belly is due to a digestion issue, warm lemon water can help. On the other hand, if your belly comes from eating too much sugar, that may be a sign of Metabolic Syndrome.

  • Hi Stela
    Warm lemon water in the morning can be very helpful if you are experiencing morning sickness. Always check with your doctor first.

  • Hi Penelope
    It can help dark spots but it always depends on the cause of the symptoms. Warm lemon water will help to alkalize the body so if the dark spots are due to acidity, it can help.

  • Hi Julua
    We always recommend that you begin a new regime slowly. You could start with half of a lemon (even a quarter if you are very sensitive) and see how your body responds. You can then increase the amount of lemon you are adding according to taste and response.

  • Hi Alex
    Start by adding the juice of 1/2 a lemon to 1 cup of warm water.

  • Hi Jed
    It is always best that you take your medication with simply water. If your doctor approves, you could drink your lemon water an hour or two after taking your medication.

  • Hi Rita
    Unless your doctor says otherwise, there should be no harm in drinking warm lemon water.

  • Hi Andre
    A cold glass of water with lemon & honey (lemonaid) would be very refreshing throughout the day. As discussed in our article, drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning can have many health benefits including weight loss. Honey is sugar, although a healthier version if it is non-pasteurized and organic. Many versions of honey have no honey in them and are only sugar. Sugar is never beneficial for weight loss. We recommend simply lemon and warm water first thing in the morning.

  • Hi Mary
    It can help if your acne is due to acidity. If it is a response to food that you consume like chocolate or cheese or toxicity in the body, it may help but lifestyle changes should also be considered.

  • Hi Jenna
    Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar is excellent. It can’t hurt to add it.

  • Hi Annelise
    We are referring to warm water (not hot water) with a half a lemon squeezed into it. Great question!

  • Hi Pressman
    Warm lemon water is an excellent way to improve your health but not a solution to any diagnosed infection or disease.

  • Hi Adithya
    I always wait at least an hour after my warm lemon water before drinking tea or coffee.

  • Hi Belinda
    Good for you!! Stopping 15 cups of coffee daily is an amazing feat. Lemon water is great but too much can irritate your teeth. Try rinsing with warm water after you have your 3rd or 4th mug. It sounds like you are on the right track towards losing weight and feeling better.

  • Hi Dave
    Adding ginger, even turmeric, is great, Ginger & turmeric are excellent anti-inflammatories. For some, starting slowly works better so simply drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning is a huge step towards good health.

  • Hi Kaycee
    That is great! Remember to stay well-hydrated. Drink lots of good quality water throughout the day.

  • Hi Travis
    The juice sounds great. We just aren’t certain that it has never been heated, causing it to lose nutrients. If you are drinking it with warm water and seeing results, that is great. I still prefer fresh, organic lemons and good quality water.

  • Hi Liz
    You have stumped me on this one. It doesn’t sound like anything that I would want to drink, especially first thing in the morning.

  • Hi Francis
    Warm water is easier on your stomach first thing in the morning. Cold water needs to be warmed in your tummy so causes the body to have to do some work. Some of us do not do well with cold drinks.

  • Hi Mir
    Are you seeing benefits from cold lemon water? Try warm water instead and see if you notice a difference. Warm water is easier on our stomachs first thing in the morning.

  • Hi Sara
    I hope that you are seeing benefits from your morning warm lemon water. Weight loss is never, fast. The pounds are slow to come on and slow to come off and require many lifestyle changes to be successful. Try the registered nutritionists at The Health House in Markham, ON

  • Hi Jenny
    Half a lemon is perfect. Squeezing the lemon the night before and keeping it in the fridge ready for the morning should not be a problem.

  • Hi Ann
    If you are using the skin, please make sure that the lemon is organic. I can’t see why freezing the lemon before using would be more beneficial than using a fresh whole organic lemon.

  • Hi Trini
    Try 1/2 of a fresh lemon squeezed into one cup of good quality warm water. Drink it after waking and enjoy!

  • Hi Gideon
    It will definitely help cleanse the urinary system but is not the solution for a bladder or urinary tract infection.

  • Hi Rita
    By squeezing lemon into warm water, you are diluting it. It definitely could have a positive effect on mouth odour.

  • Hi Carlos
    Squeeze one half of a fresh lemon into one 8 oz glass or cup of warm water and drink it first thing in the morning.

  • Hi Saika
    If you aren’t concerned about weight loss, you could add a small amount of non-pasteurized organic honey.

  • Hi Odibeze
    If you are referring to the skin, using lemon with the skin is great as long as the fresh lemon is organic.

  • Hi Chinmayi
    We suggest 1/2 of a fresh lemon squeezed into an 8 oz cup of warm water first thing in the morning. It is very good for digestion.

  • Hi Tracey
    Please check with your doctor. During a flareup, lemon might irritate.

  • can lemon treat heart burn and can it make one to stop snoring?

  • As you can see from the comments it does help with many issues. Try it and let us know what happens!

  • Hi Hannat, yes some people do react differently. The may be some other issues that need to be addressed.

  • I wouldn’t boil the lemon as you could destroy some of the Vitamin c. Just add some hot water to your cup with 1/3 cup of cool water.

  • Part of the benefit of lemon and water is to help get the acids out of the body. Drinking coffee is putting your body into a very acidic state. If you didn’t drink the coffee you would get more benefit from the lemon water.

  • Positive effects is what is reported!

  • No honey, you would be defeating the purpose of the lemon water and adding sugar to you diet which will not help with weight loss.

  • Lemon juice can be very helpful for both kidney stones and supporting the liver and digestion.

  • Hi Linda, I would suggest you ask the doctor that prescribed the medication.

  • That’s wonderful! Thank you for sharing our experience.

  • I think you find a lot of benefit by drinking lemon water.

  • It will help to make some positive changes to the entire body which could certainly help your skin and maybe eye pressure as well.

  • Lemon water will help to adjust the pH of the tissues which will help you body to absorb more nutrient that the thyroid needs.

  • Fantastic! Congratulations on the changes you have made!!

  • Hi Michelle, I would only use a fresh squeezed real lemon not a juice mixture. Yes you can drink lemon water before bed.

  • Great, let us know your results!

  • Yes, in fact it will help to prevent you from getting calcium stones.

  • Yes, that would be a good way to break the fast.

  • Hi Sharon, exercise will boost your metabolism.

  • 8 ounces of warm or cool water and half of a fresh squeezed lemon.

  • Squeeze half a fresh lemon into 8 ounces of cool, warm or hot water. Enjoy!

  • Is it more preferable to use ripe lemon or unripe lemon, can it be used to lose belly fat after delivery and can it be taken when taking antibiotics?

  • hi Marlene. I’m 30years old I’m weighing 94kg. what should I do to loose weight at least up to 75kg?

  • Hi Vestine
    In order to lose weight, each of us needs to look at more than just the calories we consume. We need to change our diet, our lifestyle, become more active, remove some of the things that cause us stress, make sure we are getting enough sleep, etc. A check-up with your doctor to make sure that you have no health challenges and a visit to a certified practitioner that can take your history and guide you on how to much the right changes would be a great place to start. Check out healthhouse.ca to work with a Registered Nutritional Consultant.

  • Hi Prisci
    Fruit is always best after it ripens. Check with your doctor first to make sure lemon is not contraindicated with your particular antibiotics. Always preferable to take probiotics during and after antibiotics. Warm lemon water is a great place to begin. Cutting sugar from your diet is important to lose belly fat.

  • Hi Keykey
    Yes, room temperature will work just as well!

  • Hi Shuvo:
    Warm lemon water on an empty stomach can minimize the formation of kidney stones, help eliminate small stones, and minimize belly fat.

  • Hi Nicolene
    I am not sure about your reference to “lemon juice”. If your skin feels like it is burning when drinking the warm lemon water or consuming lemons, you may be allergic to lemons. In that case, you shouldn’t eat or drink lemons. It is always good to check with your physician.

  • Hi Charlie
    Room temperature is fine.

  • Hi Melinda
    It can be tap water but I always prefer to use purified or reverse osmosis water.

  • Hi Eugene
    You can definitely add mint but please remember that honey is still sugar. At night before bed is fine.

  • Hi David
    Lemon water can help alkalize the body. If the body is acidic, it will leach calcium from the bones to alkalize it. The excess calcium can create kidney stones as it moves out of the body. When the stones are small, lemon water and water, in general, are important to help flush them out of the body.

  • Any water will work but it is always preferable to use clean, healthy water.

  • Hi Maryamawit
    Yes, drinking it in the evening before bed can be beneficial as well.

  • Hi Fritz
    1/2 a lemon with 1 8 oz glass of water

  • Hi Pamela
    Instead of lemon juice, it is much better to use 1/2 of a fresh lemon in a 8 oz glass of warm water.

  • Hi Karen
    Thanks for sharing. It sounds like your lemon water is helping you clear out excess mucous first thing in the morning.

  • Hi Leona
    1/2 fresh lemon squeezed into 8 oz of warm water first thing in the morning.

  • Hi Maryjane
    Losing weight always involves making changes – in diet, exercise, lifestyle, stress levels, etc. When you make healthier choices, you are more likely to feel better, have more energy, and begin to normalize your weight.

  • Hi Dorothy
    Drinking warm lemon water in the morning can be helpful in many ways. For a specific health issue, it is always best to see your doctor.

  • Hi Rahi
    Drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning is not a recipe for losing weight but has many healthy benefits for everyone whether their weight is too high or too low.

  • Hi Simrankaur
    Warm lemon water first thing in the morning can be beneficial for most of us and is not a recipe for weight loss. It can help normalize weight as one of its very many benefits.

  • Hi Jermaine
    It helps alkalize the body so could help improve your skin. If you are concerned, try starting with a 1/4 of a fresh lemon, or less, in an 8 oz glass of warm water.

  • Hi Elizabeth
    Lemon water is not a “cure” for any disease or condition but is one way to begin making healthy changes that can improve your state of health.

  • Hi Dina
    Honey is still a sugar so it is always best to drink the warm lemon water without sweetener. If you do add 1 tsp of honey, make sure it is unpasteurized, raw, organic honey. Otherwise it may contain no honey, just sugar. Thanks for sharing your success.

  • Hi Laurie
    1/2 fresh lemon in 8 oz warm water is best.

  • Hi
    It is best to use fresh lemon. Bottled juices are heated so lose many of their ingredients’ nutrients.

  • Hi Edgardo
    Lemon is acidic outside of the body with a PH of about 2. Once it is digested, it becomes alkalizing. Check it out. Test your urine with PH strips before drinking lemon water. After you start drinking lemon water every morning, start testing your urine.

  • Hi Ariana
    Not all Essential Oils are certified as safe taken internally. To be safe, it is preferable to use a fresh lemon.

  • I’ve been drinking lemon water first thing each morning for about 2yrs. Just one slice in hot water which I add a squeeze of honey. I have lost about 10lbs without dieting. It also helps my Crohns symptoms. I then rinse with water so as not to harm my teeth with the acidity from the lemon. I swear by it.

  • Hi Nicole
    Try drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning and see how you feel. Once you feel better, you may have more incentive to quit smoking.

  • Hi Uche
    It can’t hurt. Try it and see if you find that changes are happening.

  • Hi Dharmendra
    It is always best to do a natural drink or supplement away from a pharmaceutical medication by at least an hour. If you don’t need to take your thyroid medication first thing, you may want to start with the warm lemon water, wait 15-30 minutes and then have your cold water followed by your medication in about 30 minutes, as directed by your physician.

  • Hi Moire
    We are recommending warm lemon water as a drink and not to be applied directly onto the skin. By changing the PH of the body, you may find an improvement in your skin. We are each unique so respond differently.

  • For most, one glass of warm lemon water in the morning with nothing added is all that they need to see favorable changes. You can drink it more often throughout the day as long as it doesn’t irritate your teeth or your stomach.

  • Hi Ann
    Try it and see what benefits you achieve. It doesn’t work the same way for everyone.

  • I have learned a lot about hot lemon water. Thanks for your time Marlene. Hope this will help me too.

  • You are welcome! As you can see many people have had good results with lemon water.

  • Wow, that’s great! Thank you for sharing your experience!!

  • Yes, the lemon water will not cause you to lose weight if you do not need to.

  • Hi Anupaddu
    It is always worth trying. Please let us know how you do!

  • Hi Heidi
    If you wish to continue drinking your 1-2 cups of coffee per day, wait at least an hour after your lemon water. Lemon water will help to alkalize your body while coffee will acidify it. Coffee may have a negative effect on some of its benefits.

  • Hi Kellie
    Luke water is fine. Cold water is hard on your digestive system.

  • Hi Jazz
    That is an interesting way to do this. I would think that if you can consume 2 lemons undiluted, you would be fine with warm lemon water which should be much less acidic to the stomach. Thanks for letting us know about the benefits that you have seen.

  • Hi Raina
    As long as your doctor does not disapprove, try it and please let us know how you do!

  • Hi Hanie
    Many of our readers have commented that it has helped them reduce belly fat. We all respond differently but give it a try and please let us know your results.

  • Hi Jibran
    Warm lemon water, as you describe it, may be very beneficial. My question to you, though, is where is your protein? Protein is an essential part of any diet. If you have difficulty adding protein into your diet, you might want to try a consultation with a registered nutritionist The Health House in Markham, ON

  • Good for you Ronda. Please let us know!!

  • Hi Kimberly
    Have you or your dental professional noticed any dental enamel breakdown? If not, and you are simply concerned, you can rinse your mouth with plain water after each cup of lemon water. You could also cut back to lemon water once or twice a day.

  • Hi Ress
    Lemon water will not cause you to lose weight if you do not need to lose weight. Enjoy!!

  • Hi Lance
    It sounds like warm lemon water first thing in the morning could be very helpful to you. Are you drinking enough water throughout the day? Please check with your doctor about your swollen ankles if you do not see improvement.

  • Hi Ayobami
    My first question is whether you have been checked by your doctor for constant chest pain. If you are cleared, then you might try warm lemon water and see if you find an improvement.

  • Hi Carolyn
    Have you seen your doctor about your hernia? Your doctor’s recommendations always come first. Once your hernia is taken care of, lemon water can be very helpful in losing weight.

  • Hi Lourembam
    Warm lemon water may be very helpful to people with kidney stones and may help preventing future stones.

  • Hi Rani
    Are you being treated medically for the stomach ulcer? Did your doctor give you a list of foods that you should avoid? If lemons are not on that list and if you want to try having warm lemon water, try starting with just a squeeze of lemon in 8 oz glass of water. If it doesn’t irritate your stomach ulcer, and you see improvements, you can slowly increase the amount of lemon that you use.

  • Hi Marlys
    Bottled juices have to be sterilized so they are boiled in hot water. This causes a loss of nutrients which would change the benefits that you would achieve.

  • Hi Patti
    Lukewarm or warm water are preferred. 1/2 a squeezed lemon into 8 oz of water.

  • Hi Shaz
    We suggest that you take your warm lemon water at least an hour away from medication. If your Synthroid has to be taken first, then wait an hour and drink your warm lemon water.

  • Hi Prasad
    Not a problem but you can try having a glass of plain water immediately after your lemon water. Perhaps the lemon water is helping your body to let you know that you are dehydrated.

  • Hi Vineeth
    Whatever time you wake up, and stay up, is the best time to have your warm lemon water.

  • Hi Tariq
    If you have a blood pressure monitor at home, try taking your BP before and after taking the warm lemon water. Try doing this for a few days and see if your blood pressure goes down or up afterwards. If it goes up each time, stop the lemon water. Otherwise, give it a few weeks and see how you do.

  • Good question Deb. Bottled juice and the juice in the plastic lemon must be sterilized before it can be sold. This requires boiling and that will reduce the nutritional, in particular, the vitamin c content of the lemon water.

  • Warm lemon water has many benefits including changing the PH of the body. PH levels can be a problem in infertility. Try it and see what results you achieve. Please let us know.

  • Hi Christy
    Splenda is high in fructose which we would never recommend. If you need to sweeten the warm lemon water, a little honey would definitely be a better choice.

  • Hi Tangelee
    If you do not need to lose weight, lemon water will not cause you to do so. Give it a try!

  • Hi Mandy
    Try having the warm lemon water every morning and see what happens!

  • Hi Sudha
    Those are great results. Thanks for sharing!!

  • Hi Ullika
    This is a new one for us. Thanks for sharing!

  • Hi MJ
    Yes it can be frozen without losing its benefits. Before using the lemon cubes, let them thaw and warm first.

  • Hi Kevin
    We are all so different that this is a difficult question to answer. You will only know by experimenting with both. You may wish to alternate the days or drink them an hour apart every morning or even add Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar and the Wildflower honey to your warm lemon water.

  • Hi Mike
    Yes, unless it irritates your stomach or your teeth.

  • Hi Mariela
    Our suggestion is for using lemon water first thing in the morning. 1/2 lemon with 8 oz of warm water. If you don’t like lemons and want to substitute limes, give it a try and see what happens.

  • Hi Cleo
    Half a lemon in 8 oz of warm water. Enjoy!

  • Hi Gowri
    Yes, you can drink it at night after dinner. It is best on an empty stomach, particularly first thing in the morning.

  • Hi Octavia
    Yes, room temperature water is fine.

  • Hi Samantha
    You can drink it throughout the day unless the lemons irritate your teeth or your stomach.

  • Hi Ruth
    We recommend lemon water but you can definitely try lime water and see how it goes.

  • Thanks for sharing James.

  • Hi Glenda
    Try and see how it goes.

  • Hi Frederick
    Lemon juice in bottles or cartons are sterilized in boiling water so nutrients are lost. We prefer 1/2 fresh lemon in 8 oz of (ordinary) water.

  • Hi Denise
    Are you drinking enough water throughout the day? I could possibly see too many lemons causing irritation but unlikely to cause an infection. Check with your doctor.

  • Hi Yolanda
    Benefits are different for everyone. Try having warm lemon water daily and check your blood pressure. Please let us know.

  • Hi James
    Warm or room temperature water are preferred. Cold water has to be warmed by the stomach so can be hard on your digestion.

  • Hi Sara
    Lemon water can be helpful to prevent kidney stones. We are not sure if it can help with CKD. Drinking water is important. You can try adding lemon.

  • Hi Favour
    Boiling lemon will remove some of the nutrients. We suggest adding 1/2 fresh lemon to 8 oz of warm or room temperature water.

  • Hi Fateh
    Fresh lemon in room temperature water first thing in the morning is fine.

  • Hi Zoi
    Room temperature water is fine.

  • Hi Chris
    We can’t recommend warm lemon water to cure any disease but you can definitely try and see what benefits you feel.

  • Hi Kay
    Warm lemon water is great for the immune system. It can have some pretty amazing benefits. With a fatty liver, it all depends on the cause and usually demands more lifestyle and diet changes as well. Working with a registered nutritional consultant is a great way to begin changing your health. Check out the nutritionists at The Health House in Markham, ON

  • Hi Yolanda
    Warm lemon water is great for the immune system and wouldn’t be contraindicated with chemotherapy. A healthy immune system is important in fighting all cancers. Best of luck with your treatment & recovery!

  • Hi Gary
    1/2 lemon and 8 oz of warm water

  • Hi Ajay
    Warm lemon water is great for the immune system. With a cold, you also may want to try adding ginger. Definitely while you have the cold to help the immune system do its job.

  • Hi Williams
    Warm lemon water is great for the immune system and as long as you are not allergic to lemons, helpful with allergies. You will only know it affects you by drinking it every morning on an empty stomach.

  • Hi Noeline
    Lemonade is generally cold and has sugar in it and could even come from a mix or a bottle. That would not do the same job. We are recommending 1/2 fresh lemon in warm or room temperature water on an empty stomach.

  • Hi Parvati
    We never tell you not to take prescribed medication. Please let us know how you did with the lemon water.

  • Hi Tim
    We haven’t heard of any negative effects unless someone finds that the lemons irritate their stomach or teeth. If you don’t need to lose weight, drinking lemon water will not cause weight loss.

  • Thanks for sharing Mark. You must be thrilled with your results! Keep it up!!!

  • Hi Raju
    Fresh lemon in warm or room temperature water can improve many areas of your health. Cold water is hard on the digestive system. Warm lemon water can be very beneficial for the liver.

  • Thanks Karen. I am happy that you are benefitting from our articles and the comments from our readers. Pharmaceutical laxatives can be very harsh on the colon and are usually recommended to be taken for a short time. Some herbal products cause the colon to turn a very dark colour which is not harmful but can make diagnosis difficult when having a colonoscopy or xray.

  • Hi Celeste
    Yes, you can drink this throughout the day unless too much lemon irritates your stomach or your teeth. You may wish to rinse your mouth with plain water after each cup.

  • Hi Samah
    You will only know by giving it a try. Please begin with about 1/4 of a fresh lemon in warm water, sipping it slowly on an empty stomach. If you have no irritation, you can then increase to 1/2 of a fresh lemon and enjoy!

  • Hi Debbie
    The problem with real lemon is that it contains preservatives. The body does not recognize chemicals or preservatives as healing.

  • Lemon by itself can be irritating to the stomach and your teeth. By squeezing 1/2 a fresh lemon into 8 oz of warm water, this can be prevented.

  • Hi Akash
    It isn’t lemon juice but fresh lemon in warm water. It can definitely help your digestive system, including acidity and gas.

  • Hi Jean
    It depends on which make of essential oil and whether it is safe to be taken internally. You may wish to contact the company for the answer to this question.

  • Hi Joshua
    Thanks so much for sharing all of your information with our readers. Much appreciated!

  • Hi Inara
    Green tea does have caffeine so may interfere with sleep. Honey is still sugar so if you are trying to lose weight, it is best to have your warm lemon water with no honey.

  • Lemon juice may have preservatives and also may be boiled causing it to lose nutrients. There is nothing like fresh lemons.

  • Thanks for sharing, Andrea. Very encouraging for our sceptics!

  • Hi Boni
    No guarantees. Only by trying will you know if you achieve the benefits that you these benefits. It may take persistence and patience.

  • Hi Sarah,
    Fresh lemons please! You do not want to ingest the preservatives in bottled lemon juice or lose the nutrients due to the heating process.

  • Hi Nithya
    Warm lemon water will not cause weight loss if you have no weight to lose. Enjoy!

  • Hi Rebecca
    Warm lemon water on an empty stomach in the morning can help with belly fat reduction but the most effective way to lose it is to cut sugar from your diet. The two together can bring incredible results!

  • Hi Janice
    Our recipe calls for 1/2 a fresh lemon in 8 oz of warm water (not 18 oz unless you want to dilute it to prevent stomach or teeth irritation).

  • Hi Chris
    1/2 fresh lemon to 8 oz warm water. Whenever juicing, the recommendation is always to drink it right away or refrigerate it and have the other half the following day. The longer it sits in the fridge, the fewer nutrients that remain.

  • Hi Deepu
    As we have heard from many of our readers, it can help you reduce your weight. Remember, changing your diet, lifestyle, exercise, and stress levels are also great important to help you lose weight.

  • Hi Donna
    It is always best to take medication by itself, either an hour before or after your lemon water.

  • Thanks Gene. Our recommendation is 1/2 fresh lemon to 8 oz of warm water.

  • Hi Becky
    You can try it but start slowly with a small piece of lemon in 8 oz or more of warm water. If you experience zero irritation, then you can slowly increase the size of the lemon until you are having 1/2 lemon with 8 oz or more of warm water. If you do experience irritation, than you may not be ready for lemon water at this time.

  • Hi Irene
    Have your lemon water at least 20 minutes before breakfast. You notice that I said lemon water, not lemon juice. So, yes, 1/2 fresh lemon in 8 oz of warm water.

  • Hi Kudakwashe
    Give it a try. It takes time and patience to sometimes achieve the specific benefits that you desire. You will only know by doing it.

  • Hi Antony
    1/2 fresh lemon to 8 oz of warm water

  • Warm lemon water on an empty stomach in the morning can help reduce weight and belly fat but cutting sugar (and bread) out of your diet will help speed up the process.

  • Hi Mamta
    You may want to begin by having them at least 20 minutes apart. Once you know how the warm lemon water makes you feel, you may wish to try to have them together.

  • Hi Enbee
    It is best to wait at least an hour after the warm lemon water.

  • Hi Lyka
    Our recommendation is 1/2 fresh lemon to 8 oz warm water (not boiling water). Unless your lemons are particularly large, you may want to start having more than 1/7 of a lemon daily.

  • Hi Bhim
    1/2 fresh lemon (not lemon juice) in 8 oz warm water on an empty stomach in the morning. Lemons have slightly more Vitamin C than Limes – nutritionally they are a bit different. There is no problem combining the two and seeing how you feel.

  • Hi Ebehiagorua
    Usually hyperthyroidism causes weight loss and hypothyroidism results in difficulty losing weight. Warm lemon water (not lemon juice) should help you in either case.

  • Hi Sandii
    I would think that the amount of liquids would be restricted. Warm lemon water could be very helpful but just be sure that the amount of fluid going into the body doesn’t exceed the amount of fluid passing out of the body.

  • Great article. Thanks

  • Hi Teekay
    With pharmaceutical prescriptions, the word “cure” is used. With natural remedies, we give the body the nutrients or tools that it needs, clean things up in the environment, and the body removes the symptoms that it uses to tell us that something is wrong. Drinking warm lemon water will improve the body’s health. Only by drinking it daily will you really know what changes will happen.

  • Hi Glenda
    I would think that it would help unless the acidity in the lemon irritates whatever is causing your dry mouth. Try it and please let us know.

  • Hi Tina
    Drinking warm lemon water by itself cannot reverse an autoimmune condition. An autoimmune condition is the body attacking itself. This always involves a toxic terrain – as if your house is really clean but the basem*nt is full of garbage. Eventually, it will affect the entire house. There many changes that you need to make to work on trying to reverse any autoimmune condition. It would be wise for you to work with a Registered Nutritional Consultant. Check out our nutritionists at: The Health House in Markham, ON Consultation in person or on line.

  • Hi Niba
    That sounds fine to me.

  • Hi Leonard
    That should be fine.

  • Hi David
    I am not sure what you mean by lemon tea. What we are recommending is 1/2 of a fresh lemon squeezed into warm water. Warm or room temperature water is preferred.

  • Hi Michael
    Cold water is hard on the digestive system – it can shut it down. Warm or room temperature water is much better.

  • Hi Anik
    Cold water is too hard on the digestive system. Drinking it after dinner can slow down or impact the digestion of the food that you recently eat and for most people, it is the biggest meal of the day. Always use warm or room temperature water. If you can only drink the warm lemon water in the evening, try and see how it goes but only on an empty stomach so at least 60 to 90 minutes after dinner.

  • Hi Dee
    Not lemon juice but 1/2 of a fresh lemon squeezed into 8 oz of warm water.

  • Hi Judy
    Real Lemon juice has preservatives so will not have the same effect. We are trying to clean up the toxicity in the body.

  • Hi Linda
    Stevia is fine. Honey is ok as long as you are not trying to lose weight.

  • Hi Jay
    Lemons can be hard on the teeth and gums. That is one of the reasons that we recommend it diluted in warm water. You can also rinse your mouth with plain water after the drink. If you would like to start once a week, see how it goes. If it isn’t irritating to your games you can slowly increase how often you drink it.

  • Hi Lori
    Cold or ice water shuts down your digestive system. Can you tolerate room temperature water?

  • Hi Teekay
    Lemon juice is higher in Vitamin C than lime juice but lime juice has many nutritional benefits as well. If you don’t like lemon juice, try lime and see how it goes. The benefits may not be the same but it is still a good thing to do for your health.

  • Hi Subair
    As long as the water isn’t cold when you drink it, that would be fine.

  • Hi Subair
    Yes, you can mix hot and cold water as long as it is warm or room temperature when it reaches your stomach. It can help with belly fat. If you belly fat keeps increasing, you may be consuming too much sugar or bread or starch. Cutting out these things can also make a big difference.

  • Hi Stella
    Warm lemon water should be fine. You can test your blood before and after to be sure.

  • Hi Joe
    Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, natural remedies will not cure or claim to cure any disease. It does, however, help detoxify and de-acidify the body helping the body to begin to heal itself.

  • Hi Claudia
    It can only add to the benefits. Keep up the good work!

  • Hi Paul
    Warm lemon water can improve the functioning of your entire digestive system. Make sure that it doesn’t irritate the hemorrhoids. It shouldn’t but we are all unique.

  • Hi Idrees
    Drinking warm lemon water can be very beneficial to helping the body heal itself. If you need more help, you may want to consult with a Registered Nutritionist. Try contacting

  • Hi Bhaskar
    If you are allergic to lemons you should not eat or drink anything with lemons. Are you also allergic to limes? If not, you can try warm lime water – 1/2 lime to 8 oz of warm water.
    If the lemons irritate your stomach, that usually isn’t a true allergy. You may want to start with only 1/4 or 1/8 of a lemon with the 8 or more oz of warm water. Warm or room temperature water is fine just not cold or ice water.

  • Hi Timmy
    Not that we know but check with your doctor.

  • Hi Artemio
    Yes, it would be very beneficial. Not lemon juice but 1/2 a fresh lemon in 8 oz of warm water on an empty stomach.

  • Thanks Esther. We really appreciate you sharing your success.

  • Hi Carrie
    1/2 a fresh lemon to 8 oz warm water. Good luck!

  • Hi Alisha
    Cold or ice water shuts down your digestion so the benefits would not be the same.

  • Hi Madu
    It is important not to drink it cold – it will shut down your digestion. Boiling the lemon will also destroy some of its nutrient content. The longer the drink sits in the fridge, the fewer vitamins. So, the benefits will not be the same.

  • Hi Noy
    It is important to check with your doctor to see exactly what is going on. You may have a rheumatic or arthritic condition. Regardless of the condition, drinking warm lemon water every morning on an empty stomach can be very helpful. Also, gentle movement daily; like walking, swimming, tai chi or qicong or feldenkrais can be extremely helpful.

  • Hi Amit
    Please check with your dentist to make sure that lemons won’t be too acidic during your treatment. The recommended recipe is 1/2 fresh lemon squeezed into 8 oz of warm water in the morning on an empty stomach.

  • Hi Artemio
    Yes it could be very helpful.

  • Hi Eugenia
    Please remember, it is lemon water, not lemon juice. Sea salt is very healthy. You can try it and see how it helps.

  • Hi Rita
    Warm lemon water can be very helpful in gently removing toxicity from the body allowing the body to heal itself. You may notice increased elimination which is a good thing unless it is something like explosive diarrhea. Generally, there should be no negative side effects.

  • Hi Paul
    We recommend 1/2 fresh lemon in 8 oz of warm (not hot) water. Raw honey (unless you are trying to lose weight) and cinnamon would make an excellent addition. Apple Cider Vinegar is terrific too. My only warning would be not to make this drink too acidic or it could have adverse effects on your stomach or teeth.

  • Hi Bindeeba
    I believe that you are referring to high blood pressure. Warm lemon water can be very helpful. Something that you are eating daily can be complicit in this issue. If you are dizzy and falling down, especially first thing in the morning, please see your doctor and find out if the two are related or what else could be going on.

  • Hi Stella
    Warm lemon water and ginger could be very effective. Ginger and turmeric are great additions when there is inflammation in the body. Lemons are alkalizing to the body so also a benefit to those with arthritis.

  • Hi Aditya
    Usually salt would be added if you have problems hydrating. In that case, good quality grey celtic sea salt can be very helpful.

  • Hi Eddy
    Sounds perfect to me.

  • Hi Chiboss
    1/2 lemon with 8 oz warm water

  • Hi Chinedu
    Lemon alone can be too acidic for your teeth or stomach if just squeezed without diluting it with warm water.

  • Hi Alexa
    Try it and see.

  • Hi
    A few days of warm lemon water should not have made that kind of difference. Actually, it should have been cleansing. You can rarely tell what is going on after just one cycle.

  • Hi Philip
    It may be helpful for you to see a registered nutritional consultant to help guide you with respect to changes in diet, lifestyle, exercise, stress etc. Try contacting The Health House, Markham, ON

  • Hi Swuppa
    Warm lemon water every morning will not result in weight loss for those that do not need to lose weight. Enjoy your drink!

  • Hi Rosalinda
    Lemon juice in bottles and RealLemon do have preservatives which you wouldn’t use when trying to cleanse your body. The best results will always be from 1/2 of a freshly squeezed lemon in warm water.

  • Hi John
    Yes. Warm lemon water is very cleansing for the liver.

  • Warm lemon water will not cause weight loss if you do not need to lose weight. If you are concerned, you may also add organic unpasteurized honey.

  • Hi Jamie
    It all depends if the essential oils brand that you are using is guaranteed to be safe taken internally. I have tried it but there is nothing like 1/2 a fresh lemon. It even tastes better.

  • Hi Ishwar
    Warm lemon water, not lemon juice, on an empty stomach first thing in the morning can be very cleansing for the liver. The second part of your question is more difficult to answer. I am not sure if you are talking about after a drink the previous evening or alcoholism.

  • Hi Enoch
    No, it wouldn’t Black tea is full of caffeine which is not healthy and many brands have other additives as well.

  • Hi Rahma
    Warm lemon water, not lemon juice, is not a cure for any disease. It is a great way to help the body cleanse and move towards healing in a gentle and safe manner.

  • Hi Kya
    Although lemon is considered to be an acidic fruit, it is alkalizing to the body when taken internally. Generally, protein and carbs are acidic to the body. Vegetables and fruit (and minerals) are alkalizing. The question is why are you alkaline? Generally a desirable urine PH is 6.8 to 7.2. If your PH is higher, you should check with your healthcare provider to see what is going on.

  • Hi Katherine
    1/2 fresh lemon squeezed into warm or room temperature water (not hot). How quickly it takes effect depends on your body. Fast is not always best. Gentle and effective are preferred.
    Drink and enjoy!

  • Hi Dorcas
    Yes! It should be fine with both.

  • Hi Solly
    That all depends on your diet, lifestyle, exercise, and stress levels. Warm lemon water will definitely help but does not work alone if we continue old habits.

  • We grate lemon rind, squeeze the juicy flesh in a teapot full of water, let it soak overnight & drink it as the first thing in the morning with a little warm water. Does this meet the minimum Vitamin C intake requirement per day?

  • Lemon water is it good before or after brushing the mouth with toothpaste

  • Hi, I have been taking lemon in the morning for a year now, my face seems to be smoother, could this be effects of the lemon?

  • Hi Anthony
    Yes, it could be!

  • Hi Olayinka
    Either way would be fine.

  • Hi Arijit
    Sounds good. The minimum RDA requirement is only 60 mg but that is not nearly enough. !/2 lemon daily would not be sufficient for all of your vitamin C requirements but is a great start.

  • Hi Kanak
    Anything that you do to benefit your health will be helpful. Warm lemon water every morning will definitely improve your health in many ways.

  • Hi
    Wait at least 15 minutes. Everyone’s results are different but you should notice some changes within the first few weeks.

  • Hi Limib
    Yes it does. Cutting sugar out of your diet will also make a big difference in the reduction of belly fat.

  • Hi Shelley
    The best benefits are achieved on an empty stomach although having it after breakfast will help you digest your meal.

  • Hi Debbie
    That would be a question best answered by your Pharmacist.

  • Hi Ameenah
    Once we squeeze the juice from the fruit and let it sit longer than a day or two, the benefits are less because nutrients are lost.
    Limes are excellent too but they are lower in Vitamin C content and the nutrients are not the same.

  • Hi Onyeka
    Ginger is also an excellent addition – for digestion and inflammation.

  • Hi Neetha
    Lemon by itself can be very acidic to the teeth and stomach. It is much safer to dilute it in water.

  • Hi Chel
    It is always best to take medications by themselves. If you can wait 15-20 minutes, have your drink first otherwise have the medications and wait 15-20 minutes before having your drink. As you see changes, you can discuss lowering your medication a little bit at a time with your doctor’s help and advice.

  • Hi Rita
    The most accurate test for h pylori is a breath test at a lab.

  • Hi May
    Lemons are higher in vitamin C than limes and the nutrition content differs as well. Limes are also very healthy so would be beneficial if you prefer limes to lemons.

  • Hi Joel
    1/2 fresh lemon in 8 oz warm water on an empty stomach at least 15-20 minutes before food.

  • Hi Rey
    Cold water shuts down digestion which is why we recommend warm or room temperature water.

  • Hi Raje
    Warm lemon water will not cause weight loss unless you need to lose weight. It is excellent to improve digestion. You may be underweight because you are not digesting, absorbing, or assimilating your food and nutrients.

  • Hi Oluwaseyi
    The longer it sits after cutting the lemon open, the fewer the vitamins so the benefits diminish as well.

  • Hi Elaine
    1/2 fresh lemon squeezed into 8 oz of warm water.

  • Hi Elaine
    Reconstituted lemon juice has preservatives and loses vitamins when it is sterilized. The benefits would definitely not be the same.

  • Hi Godwin
    Lemons, once digested, are alkalizing to the body but when first consumed are acidic so can be very irritating to the teeth and stomach, particularly if you have an ulcer. Heal the ulcer first. After that, you can try a small amount of fresh lemon diluted in a large glass of water and see if it is irritating.

  • Hi Patti
    Yes, you absolutely can!

  • Hi Aidee
    Adding ginger to your warm lemon water is not a problem. Ginger is great for the digestion and for inflammation. Adding cucumber would also not be a problem. Drinking water all day long is great. BUT, the problem arises if that is all that you are consuming. Your body needs protein. This type of weight loss is water and muscle loss. If you lose muscle, when you start to eat food again, your metabolism will be slower and you will regain the weight but what you regain will be fat, not muscle. That is one of the main reasons why we tend to get heavier with every diet that we try. There are no quick fixes. Eating a healthy diet including good quality protein, veggies, and fruit, cutting out sugar and starch, no fast foods, no late night snacking, exercise, drinking water…. still the best way to shed those pounds.

  • Hi Nzekwe
    Unfortunately, lemons alone will not cure serious infections which should not be left untreated. Once the infections are gone, they can, however, help to prevent future ones.

  • Hi Rajan
    Unless specified, lemon water should not be contraindicated but I wouldn’t take it at the same time as your medication. Warm lemon water, diet and lifestyle changes, all contribute to Cancer and disease prevention.

  • Hi Twahera
    If you must, please take your medication first and then wait at least 20 minutes to an hour before having your warm lemon water. Or, if you do not need to take your medication as soon as you wake up, you could have your warm lemon water and wait at least 15 to 20 minutes before the medication.nThe reason I suggest waiting longer if you take your medication first is because sometimes enzymes from certain foods can conflict with absorption or efficacy of some pharmaceutical drugs.

  • Hi Shiva
    I need a little more information. I get digestive problem which could definitely be helped by drinking warm lemon water but am not sure what you mean by Mng Flush.

  • Hi Rahmah
    Yes, of course, unless it irritates her teeth or stomach. To begin, try giving her 1/8 or 1/4 of a fresh lemon squeezed into 1/2 glass of warm or room temperature water and see if she likes it.

  • Hi Yuber
    Not necessarily. You can squeeze a small whole lemon into one glass of warm, not hot, water unless it irritates your teeth or stomach.

  • Hi
    If you are waiting 20 minutes, the lime won’t affect what you are drinking afterwards. I suggest that you stop the hot milk because dairy creates mucus in the body and is not well tolerated by most adults. Interestingly, we are the only animal that drinks the milk of another animal after two years of age.

  • Hi Tina
    It is important to stay away from food and drink that irritate Crohn’s. Ginger can be very healing during a flareup so you can substitute ginger, if lemon is irritating. You could try a small amount of lemon squeezed into a large cup of warm water and see if it is irritating. If not, go ahead and have your lemon water with or without ginger. Lemon juice, on the other hand, can be very aggravating at this time due to the additives and sugars.

  • Hi Heidi
    Thanks for sharing. Wishing your husband a speedy recovery.

  • Hi Gale
    The only way to know how you will respond is to try small amounts and see how you feel. If you are ok with apple cider vinegar, you should also be fine with warm lemon water. Please remember to only use a fresh lemon, not a bottled juice. Warm water is much gentler to the digestive system than hot water.

  • Hi Suz
    Try the lemon water first and see if you see benefits on your skin.

  • Hi Cyril
    The magnesium in the lemon can be very beneficial to balance blood pressure.

  • Hi Lucy
    The high quantity of vitamin C in the lemon can be very helpful in reducing the symptoms or shortening the length of a cold.

  • Hi Abdedamola
    Warm lemon water will help with weight loss but it is not a crash diet.

  • Hi Joe
    1/2 freshly squeezed lemon in 1 cup of warm water.

  • Hi Nish*tha
    Lemon concentrate will always have preservatives/chemicals in it so is not going to make you healthier. We only recommend using fresh lemons.

  • Hi Daniel
    Bad breath often comes from undigested food in the stomach. Warm lemon water is great to help with your digestion.

  • Hi Joy
    Drinking warm lemon water will help with weight loss but it is important to also add changes to your diet, lifestyle, exercise routine, and stress levels. It is impossible to change everything at once. Warm lemon water every morning is a great way to start and slowly add changes that will support your desire to lose weight. You may need the help of a nutritional professional. Try contacting us at
    The Health House, Markham, ON

  • Hi Mary
    No, please. Splenda is high in fructose which can actually cause weight gain. The only sweetener we would recommend would be unpasteurized honey and that only if you do not wish to lose weight.

  • Hi Pankaj
    One glass every morning on an empty stomach.

  • Hi Mavie
    It should be a great way to start your day and not interfere with your treatment. Wishing you health!

  • Hi Pankaj
    Warm lemon water on an empty stomach every morning can be very helpful to reduce belly fat. Also cutting out sugar from your diet would make a huge difference.

  • Hi Mohammad
    I am not sure if you are just taking lemon juice or actually drinking warm lemon water using 1/2 a fresh lemon squeezed into warm water.
    Adding ginger or garlic, if this is your preference, should be fine.

  • Hi Dev
    1/2 fresh lemon to 1 cup of warm water. Adding some raw, unpasteurized honey is fine unless you are trying to lose weight. Our only requirement is that you have it before food by at least 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Is it ok to eat a Grapefruit straight after drinking warm Lemon juice?

  • Can lemon Orange can be squeez in jug and keep it for refrigerator cold for using some days before while using it little by little ?

  • Hi Benson
    That sounds like a great and refreshing drink but if you are looking for health benefits, fruits (and vegetables) lose their nutritional value daily after you slice them open. Your best results will come by slicing the fresh lemon, and orange, if you like, and squeezing it (them) into a glass or cup of warm or room temperature water and drinking them at that time on an empty stomach.

  • Hi Asad
    Grapefruit is an interesting fruit. It is contraindicated with many pharmaceutical drugs. It is also a bit acidic so the lemon followed by the grapefruit could irritate your stomach and definitely might be too acidic for your teeth in combination with the lemon water. But, on the other hand, if you aren’t bothered by that, you can eat the grapefruit right after the lemon water.

  • Hi Jennifer
    Lemon juice, if not from a fresh lemon, will not have the same nutritional content. It will have been processed so will lose nutrients and it may also include additional ingredients. I don’t see a problem using the warm guava leaf water.

  • Hi Alfonso
    Cold water is hard on the digestion which is why we recommend warm or room temperature water.

  • Hi Neera
    If you enjoy the taste, there should be no problem combining the two.

  • Hi Aakanksha
    I have never heard that one! There are no hormones in warm lemon water.

  • Hi Showkat
    I am not sure if your acidity is your PH or acidity in your stomach. If it is stomach acidity, the lemon water could irritate that. I would recommend that you see a Registered Nutritional Consultant to help you with food recommendations and supplementation suggestions. Please check out our clinic at: The Health House in Markham, ON

  • Hi Diana
    It should be fine but I would start with just a squeeze of lemon in warm water and see how the baby responds. If there is no problem, you can gradually increase the amount of lemon that you add until you are at 1/4 or 1/2 a fresh lemon. Congratulations on the birth of your baby!

  • Hi Patson

  • Hi Voight
    Warm lemon water (fresh lemon not lemon juice) can definitely help the process but you also need to look at your diet, stress level, lifestyle, etc. Drinking 8-10 glasses of clean water is also very important. As you make changes, you may want to start with walking and eventually go back to running.

  • Hi Muhammad
    Both men and women can benefit from drinking warm lemon water on an empty stomach. We do suggest warm water, not hot. Boiling the lemon can cause it to lose many nutrients.

  • Hi Psalmer
    No problem with the skin on. You may want to wait until it cools down a bit before adding the lemon slices.

  • Hi Rosa
    1/2 fresh lemon and 1 cup of warm water. This can help begin the process but it is important to also look at your diet, exercise, stress level, etc.

  • Hi Florence
    Food is not like medication. It will change the environment in the body but is not a 7 or 10 day prescription. If you have a serious infection, you would need to have that looked at by a doctor.

    Since green tea has caffeine, I wouldn’t combine it with the lemon water. Have your lemon water first and wait 20 minutes before having your tea.

  • Hi Zazhota
    Drinking lemon with warm water won’t cause gastritis but it can irritate it.

  • Hi Temitope
    Lipton tea has caffeine so you don’t want to combine it with the lemon water for health benefits. Otherwise, adding lemon to your tea makes a great drink.

  • Hi Jessi
    I would suggest that you drink your warm lemon water in the afternoon at least an hour after eating or in the evening so as not to conflict with your medication.

    Good question! It doesn’t have to be warm – room temperature would be fine. Cold water shuts down digestion and hot water can reduce the efficacy due to nutrient loss.

  • Hi Thonia
    Trial and error. I would try to apply it on a tiny area that isn’t inflamed and see if it makes a difference before you start applying it all over.

  • Hi Tony
    Warm lemon water can help with kidney stones. We are recommending one cup on an empty stomach. You shouldn’t lose weight unless you are overweight.

You may be surprised by the number of changes that you see.

  • Hi Aaron
    Unless you are allergic to lemons, you should not experience any side effects. Sometimes as we cleanse, we may experience short term fatigue, headache, or other cleansing symptoms. If they are uncomfortable, drink less lemon water or start slowly with just a slice of lemon in warm water.

  • Hi Usha

    Warm lemon water can help you lose weight but it takes more than warm lemon water to lose 10 pounds. It is important to change the things that put the weight on in the first place and to examine your diet, exercise regime, stress levels, etc. Lemon water can definitely help but it is not a weight loss diet and will work differently for each of us.

  • Hi Karamjeet
    As discussed in our article, lemon water on an empty stomach, daily, can increase your metabolic rate causing you to burn more calories.

  • Hi Rahul
    The only way you can know if it will work for you is to try it – drinking lemon water changes the PH of your body which can help. Also, it is important to know if your hormones are balanced and if any of the food you are eating is contributing to the problem, like caffeine, chocolate, saturated fats, and anything you may be allergic to, etc.

  • Hi Noneluna
    Thanks for sharing. Please let us know how it goes.

  • Hi Nette

  • Hi Secilie
    Warm lemon water on an empty stomach can help reduce belly fat because it improves your digestion and increases your metabolic rate. If you don’t have excess fat other than in your belly, you should not get thinner by drinking lemon water.

  • I am loving this, there s a lot of information we are learning from. Thanks alot Marlene

  • its really effective…

  • Sounds like you have had some good experiences!

  • What I do is to slice a lemon into a bottle and add water to it. Can this help for weight loss?

  • Hi Ozy
    Lemon water is great to help with weight loss but you will also want to make sure that you improve your diet, cutting out sugars, bread, processed foods, etc.
    Losing weight involves making a lot of changes but the lemon water is definitely a great start.

  • I believe you would get greater benefit by squeezing half of a fresh lemon into the water rather the just the slices.

  • Hi Marlene. I currently take cider vinegar every morning in warm water. In your opinion do you think lemon juice has more benefit than Cider vinegar.

  • Hi , I am facing bloating since one month, could you let me know the solution, thanks

  • Hi Rana
    Since the only information you have given is “bloating”, the possibilities are endless but may I suggest that your digestive system may need help; ie, 1. Digestive Enzymes: especially those that contain Hydrochloric Acid and Bile that you would take at the end of the meal; 2. Chewing your food slowly; ie 50 chews per bite; 3. Avoiding foods that you are allergic or intolerant to, particularly dairy but also wheat, corn, sugar; 4. Ensuring that your bowels are moving 2-3 times per day; ie one meal in, one meal out. Warm Lemon Water on an empty stomach in the morning can also be very helpful. Of course, since you have only been experiencing this for one month, you may wish to consult your physician if this continues or worsens.

  • Hi Carol
    Apple Cider Vinegar is great for your digestion. Lemon water may have more benefits than simply digestion due to its high vitamin C content. Try alternating them and see which you prefer.

  • Hey Marlene,i boil my lemon slices with water then allow it to cool,is it advisable.

  • I wouldn’t suggest boiling the lemon as you may reduce the Vitamin C content. I would just use warm water instead.

  • Hi Marlene,
    I have been taking lemon water, first thing in the morning, for the last four days. Every time I take the drink, it seems to trigger migraines and headaches. Any advice?

  • I don’t know what other health issues you may have but if your liver is toxic or if you have gallstones the lemon may be stimulating the liver too much. Try drinking the lemon only 2-3 times a week with a quarter of the lemon instead of half.

  • How soon after the lemon water can I take my other supplements (multivitamin, D3, Vit C, Fish Oil and Magnesium)? I know to wait an hour before RX meds.


  • About 15 minutes however multi vitamin and fish oil should be taken with food not on an empty stomach.

  • Hi. I take lemon juice during night before going to bed. Is it good. Thanks.

  • Will lemon water remove or detox away insulin and or other diabetic oral medication(s) from the body?

  • Hi Harry
    No, warm lemon water will not detox or interfere with medication (unless you are instructed not to have lemon when taking that medication). It will, however, help with the toxic effects of medication on your organs; ie liver and kidneys. My one piece of advice would be to take your medication at least one or two hours after your lemon water or one hour before.

  • Hi Annet
    No problem taking it before bed. I would suggest that you rinse your mouth after drinking it to make sure that lemon’s acidity doesn’t sit on your teeth during the night.

  • Hello,
    My name is chandresh, 39 years old and I have a history of HTN since past 9+ years. Recently I have got angioplasty 2 months back. At present my weight is 92.3 as per digital weighting machine. My father is suffering from cancer right now and when I was just getting knowledge about I read about benefits of lemon with warm water in the morning. Dr. Told me to loose weight around 10+ kg if possible without stressed diet. pls suggest me can I start this lemon juice for this under my present condition where my medicines are to be taken. If yes, will there be any side effects.

    Pls guide.

  • Hi Chandresh
    There should be no side effects from drinking warm lemon water on an empty stomach. In addition, for losing weight, it is important to cut right back on sugar and starches, particularly bread, cake, cookies, muffins, etc. A balanced diet that includes lots of colourful vegetables (raw or cooked) with chicken, fish, turkey, fruit, sweet potatoes, healthy oils like olive oil and avocados – preferably three meals a day with no snacks – will help you lose weight. Also movement – even a 15 minute walk every day would also be very helpful. And, of course lots of good quality water – 8-10 glasses daily.

  • Hi,
    Can we combine lemon and honey in warm water and have it on empty stomach in the morning.

  • I would not suggest adding honey to the lemon water. The sweetness will trigger and insulin response which will not be good if you want to lose weight. The lemon water will help your digestion, liver and pH.




  • Hi Francis, you can drink lemon water once per day everyday if you like. Yes, it is best to squeeze half of a fresh lemon into 8 ounces of cold, room temperature or hot water. Enjoy!

  • hi marlene,
    I’ve been taking lamon and ginger water every monring and at night and in the first week, I saw dirt on my panty liner and later I’m seeing slimy discharge with light blood stains every time i go to the loo..is this normal and should I continue to drink lemon and ginger water?
    What is it doing to my body now.

  • I have been taking Lemon & Honey warm water in the empty stomach for the past 3 years, do digestive problem, am very active , skin looks good, improves my over all defence mechanism. I never had even a simple cold since started drinking the same.

  • That’s great to hear! I would consider just have the lemon water without honey. The honey could affect your blood sugar and insulin levels.

  • Hi Libby, it sounds like the lemon and ginger water is doing some cleansing. I assume you mean this is a vagin*l discharge. The body does use the uterus as a means of elimination. If there is no discomfort I would continue on but reduce to one drink per day. If this is a rectal discharge it could also be a cleansing reaction but it also could be an irritation to the bowel if you have bowel issues such as IBS, Colitis or Crohn’s in which cause I would stop.

  • Nice article and I’d prescribe you drink a glass of warm lemon water before each dinner on the off chance that you need to shed pounds.

  • Thanks for sharing!

I want to ask what is the nutritional approach to correcting hormonal inbalance.

  • Hi David, first we would have to find out what hormones are out of balance. This can be done through a consultation. We can provide hormone testing if we feel that is necessary. Consultation can be done in person or by phone/Skype/WhatsApp depending on where you are located.

  • I would suggest drinking the lemon water in the first thing in the morning and a couple of hours after dinner. 1/2 a fresh squeezed lemon in 8 ounces of water. I would also include a brisk walk every day.

  • HI Sailas, lemon water is very good for the kidneys and kidney stones. It will provide Vitamin C need by the kidneys and will help to break down stones.

  • If you boil the lemons you will lose some of the beneficial nutrients.

  • I don’t see why not.

  • If there has been a history of constipation it may be getting the bowels movement. If not then it may not be appropriate for you.

  • Lemons are actually very good for the kidneys.

  • Hi I have been reading this article and all the comments. I only started drinking water and lemon this week. I didn’t know what was best way to do it so what I have been doing is slice fresh lemon and adding 3 slices in cold water. I can see huge benefits already within 5 days.
    So after reading all these comments I’m thinking now that I would benefit from squeezing half a lemon in a glass of water rather than a huge beaker?
    Could someone please advise me if this would be okay to do?
    First thing in morning on an empty stomach squeeze half a fresh lemon in a glass of warm water and then the rest of the day sip on my bottle of water with my sliced lemon in?
    I want to know the best way to do this to get best results.

  • Hi Shadab
    Lemons can be acidic to the stomach so if there is any possibility that you have an ulcer, lemon water would not be a good choice. A visit to your doctor may be the best place to begin.

  • Hi Daniel
    Pure lemon juice can be very acidic, particularly to the stomach and to the teeth, which is why we recommend that you dilute it by adding it to water.

  • Hi Abdulrahman
    If you are 47, diabetic, and having chest pain, you need to see a doctor or go to the ER.

  • Hi Shama
    Lemon water is healthy for healthy kidneys. So, it all depends on what is going on with your kidneys; kidney stones, kidney failure, kidney disease?

  • Hi Mec
    If one has a stomach ulcer, they shouldn’t drink lemon water. It would be too acidic.

  • Hi Laurel
    Yes, it has to be a fresh lemon. Lemon juice in a container has been heated and sterilized so many of the nutrients are gone.

  • Hi Deborah
    Yes, the usual dose is 1/2 lemon in 8 oz of water water.

  • Hi Abe
    Achalasia is a swallowing disorder and one of the foods that is on the “to avoid” list is citrus fruit. Lemons are citrus fruit. I wish you well.

  • Hi Marlene, first of all. Respect that you keep on responding on all the questions from 1 article for years. To each and everyone. I changed my routine from 4.30 waking up. Taking a glass of lemon juice, warm.

  • Thanks Hans. I appreciate your message. Best to you!

  • Hi Sahil
    Without knowing your history or food intake or lifestyle, it is very difficult to know why you are underweight and low in energy and appetite. Lemon water will not hurt you and will help with your digestion which could improve your appetite. You will only know if you try it. I suggest having a complete checkup with your doctor to rule out any medical conditions. If there are no abnormalities, it could be very helpful for you to work with a practitioner who can guide you as to changes that you can make. You can reach us at healthhouse@healthhouse.ca for a consultation with one of our practitioners in person or online.

  • Hi Vanessa
    It sounds like you are seeing positive changes so it is definitely a great idea to keep going. The only way to know how your body will respond is by trial and error. Lemon or Lime? Whichever works best for you! Thanks for sharing.

  • When using lemon you can squeeze the fresh juice from it and poor the juice into a cup and add warm water you can boil the water to become warm by letting the water cool down to 96 degrees however it can help you lose five pounds in a month or more in two months for both sex however it help you to clean out your liver from yucky color to it good shade of color ? but you can not add honey to it of it won’t help you lose weight just eat veggies in the morning from 10:00 am to 11 for a snack and to go for a walk for an hour a day or twice a day to help you get your body back in to shape do 20 minutes of sit up and push up daily to help you how ever eat meat twice lunch and dinner and breakfast in the morning like ceral and toast and bananas and fruit

  • Goodday Marlene
    I would like to know if drinking 100% lemon juice bottle… Will produce same results as the squeezed lemon fruit..

  • I got through about half of the comments so if I am repeating something, I apologize. Lemon water is also great for blocking the formation of kidney stones. I grew up in southern California where we had an abundance of fresh lemons. When I got stationed in North Carolina lemons weren’t as readily available and so I started getting kidney stones. You can take a prescription of Potassium citrate or just use the real thing. https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/5-things-can-help-take-pass-kidney-stones-2018030813363

  • Hi Marlene

  • Thank you for your input! Fresh lemons are great for kidney stones.

  • I would suggest half a fresh lemon with 8 ounces of water.

  • I have recently begun to take warm lemon ? in the mornings after I wake up and I have started to see changes. Thank you for this article.

  • Hi Mommyoftwo
    Thanks for sharing your positive experience with drinking Lemon Water and for your suggestions. For many of us, having protein in the morning is important because lemon juice cereal toast and fruit without protein can spike your blood sugar.

  • Hi Lulu
    We are happy to hear that this has helped you.

  • When we should drink it before doing exercise or after doing exercise?
    And how much amount of honey and lemon juice we should add in hot water

  • Does it have to be fresh squeezed? Can you use lemon juice from a bottle? Also, will it help or hurt if I am intermittent fasting?

  • Hi Paul
    Juice from a bottle has much fewer nutrients because the bottle has to be sterilized. The benefits will not be the same. If you are doing intermittent fasting, you need to wait the 12-16 hours before you have your Lemon Water.

  • Hi Jahnvi
    1/2 a lemon to 8 oz of water. You can drink it before or after exercise, whichever feels better to you. Honey is still seen as sugar to the body so as little honey as you need to make it taste the way you like it. If you are trying to lose weight, it is best not to add any sweetener.

  • Please ma am just 17years old do you think,I can take lemon juice to burn my Belly fat, and some people also said that lemon damages the womb,and so that’s why am scared of taking it,so please ma I need your advice, please ma here is my number 07017318738.i will be waiting for your reply.

  • Does Lemon/Lime flavored water have the same effect? as I’ve been drinking the bottled flavored water and seeing a difference I am defiantly going to the toilet more then I was feel less hungry and less bloated… but would using fresh lemons have a better effect?

  • Hi Jade
    Lemons have more Vitamin C than Limes but both have many nutrients. Bottled waters and juices need to be sterilized so lose most of their nutrients during that process. To get the full benefits of lemon or lime water, squeeze 1/2 of a fresh lemon or lime into 8 oz water. Fresh lemons are preferable – organic ones even better.

  • Hi Patience
    The only down side of drinking lemon water, unless you are allergic to lemons, is that it can irritate your stomach or the enamel on your teeth. By rinsing your mouth with water, after drinking the lemon water, you will eliminate the acid on your teeth. If you have no negative symptoms or allergic reactions, enjoy your lemon water. The best way to burn your belly fat is to eliminate sugar from your diet and drinking the lemon water.

  • Are those benefits will be the same if instead of warm water I use not so cold water. This is my water for the whole day, i just refill it and drink.

  • Yes, you can use whatever temperature of water you prefer.

  • Good day ma
    Please is it advisable for someone on drugs to be drinking lemon juice

  • Lemon juice is a food so it won’t hurt you.

  • lemon juice is a great healthy choice
    I can’t start my day whithout it

  • Thanks for sharing!

  • I really love this

  • Drinking 2 glasses of hot water in the morning on an empty stomach is said to prevent a number of health issues like headaches, constipation, indigestion, kidney stones, hypertension, blood sugar etc. However, consuming 6 – 8 glasses of warm water daily are sufficient enough to keep the body, hair, and skin hydrated and get the overall health benefits.

  • Hi Ankita, I always recommend drinking half you body weight in water. Example: if you weight 150 divide by 2 is 75, divided by 8 equals 9 eight ounce glasses of water per day and if exercising you can add more.

  • Dear Marlene,

    As I was reading through your article that describes the importance of drinking lemon water empty stomach with warm water to reduce belly fat. It is true that this remedy works this way. However as someone asked if mixing sugar in it will be feasible, I would recommend not to include sugar at all! Yes, sugar will spoil the benefits as it will give you calories. If your aim is to loose weight then why consume unwanted calories?

    Also it will be sufficient to squeeze only a half of the lemon in a glass full of lukewarm water. Squeezing a whole lemon will make it taste bitter – sour. So I suggest only use half of the lemon in each serving.

    You have written a wonderful article and hope people will contribute more to it with knowledge and experience by means of helpful comments. Thank you.

  • I have been taking lemon warm water every day and I notice my lips is getting darker..
    Does lemon water damage the womb.
    Lastly between local lemon and foreign lemon which one is more harmful..

  • Not sure why your lips are getting darker other than you may be absorbing more nutrients. This is food so certainly should not damage any part of the body. Best to buy organic lemons.

  • Hi Cammy, good points. Do not add sugar, this will defeat the purpose and yes half a lemon is sufficient.

  • Thank you very much for your beneficial article and answers.
    I would like to ask if lemon juice beneficial for gout as it is alklizing agent? And how is The method? Many thanks.dr samir abdel-rheem
