We are all aware of the health benefits of lemon. Many of us have a morning ritual and consume the lemon in a combination with water. It is incredibly refreshing; it boosts your metabolism, and gives you the needed energy for the entire day.
Lemon is packed with magnesium, copper, and potassium.
Furthermore, it is an amazing source of vitamin C. A single cup of fresh lemon juice contains 187% of vitamin C, which is the recommended daily serving.
However, if you think that preparing lemon water is easy and simple, you are terribly wrong!
Most people think that they know how to prepare lemon water properly: they just squeeze the lemon and add some hot or cold water, but that is not all.
Moreover, numerous people throw away the lemon peel without knowing that it is one of the most nutritious parts of this fruit.
Today, we will reveal the proper way of preparing lemon water:
- For best results, make sure you always use organic lemons.
- Initially, cut them into thin slices and squeeze some of them, not all, into the water.
- Next, grate the zest of the squeezed slices into the water.
- Then, place the un-squeezed lemon slices in a blender, and fill it with boiling hot or ice cold water.
