Most people know that lemon water is good for you. It’s full of vitamin C and great for your overall health. Especially as we come upon another flu season, we need our immune systems in tip top shape.

And while it may be good to drink a big glass of water with lots of fresh, organic lemon juice, this is what they didn’t tell you.

1. Lemon water can help cure acne.

Drinking lemon water boosts your immune system and helps you digest food. This helps clear up acne.

2. Lemon water helps you lose weight.

One of the great benefits of lemon juice is that it helps your body normalize blood sugar which is a big help in losing weight.

3. Lemon water helps prevent kidney stones.

In some people at least. Lemons contain a ton of potassium which makes citrate levels in urine higher, disabling stone formation.

4. Lemon water helps prevent gall stones.

Same concept as above, really.

5. Lemon water helps with GERD.

It may seem counterintuitive since lemons are so acidic, but lemon juice in water actually helps settle your stomach acid and makes a good, natural replacement for tums.

6. Lemon water helps with nausea.

The simplest, but a really effective natural remedy for nausea and vomiting is lemon juice. It’s especially recommended after vomiting because freshens the mouth immediately and reduces the possibility of recurrence of nausea. In this case, you should make lemon juice with less water than the classic lemonade contains and do not drink it all at once, but in small sips. Since it is totally safe, it is useful to relieve nausea during pregnancy.

Bet you thought we were going to tell you bad things about it, huh? It goes to show that even some of the health benefits of lemon water are glossed over.
