Lemonade is, for many of us, synonymous with hot summer days and keeping cool. But, as a delicious and nutritious beverage that can be easily made at home, it deserves wider acceptance.

The benefits of lemon + water are well known. Here’s a look at the real benefits of drinking lemon juice which have been demonstrated by scientific studies.

Seven Benefits

  2. Kidney health: in some studies, citric acid is believed to reduce the risk of kidney stones, and may help to prevent their formation.
  3. Vitamin C: the vitamin helps your body to absorb other nutrients, including calcium and iron. It’s also good for your skin health.
  4. Anti-cancer: the vitamins and bioflavonoids in lemon juice have demonstrated antioxidant and anticancer properties in some studies.
  5. Digestion: the acids in lemon juice are known to help your body’s digestive processes, and can help you overcome constipation as well as settle a queasy stomach.
  6. Keeping cool: drinking lemon juice in lemonade may just help you perspire more, which in turn will help you stay cooler in hot weather – no wonder it’s a summertime fave!
