    I have to take a thyroid medication as soon as I wake up. The instructions on the bottle indicate that vitamin C should not be consumed for several hours.

    Jessi

  120. Can I put the lemon with hot green tea or should I drink lemon with hot water first then do my regular teA in the morning?

  121. Thank you for the information.
    I don’t squeeze the lemon.. I boil waer with the lemon + the peelings. Is there any harm?

  122. Lemon juice with warm water is very good, I have been taking it for more than 6months ago, I noticed some changes in my body system,my blood test was great, I recommend it for people.

  123. 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.

  124. 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.

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

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

  127. 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.

  128. 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.

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

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

  131. The homeopathic remedy will absorb in the mouth. I would wait at least 15 minutes before drinking the lemon juice so that it doesn’t negatively affect the remedy.

  132. Lemon juice has many beneficial effects and I am sure it will help as it will encourage the liver function and change the environment of the intestines to help break down your fats.

  133. I would not drink that much in one day. Just one half a lemon in one cup of water twice per day is enough.

  134. Yes you could mix lemon and lime. You could drink it cold or room temperature if you prefer.

  135. You would not get the above results by adding it to your smoothie but it would be a good flavor.

  136. I would continue what you are doing. I think 1 teaspoon would be enough in a mug with water.

  137. I would suggest just the lemon, do not add honey as this will stimulate an insulin response.

  138. Yes, but just pay attention to see if it bothers the baby or not. Some food and drink that the mother has can affect the breast milk and the baby may get upset digestion.

  139. Lemon water stimulates your digestion, liver and function and creates a more alkaline environment it the small intestine. Your enzymes need an alkaline environment to work properly. When you digest your food properly you will get the nutrients you need and then your body will lose the extra weight.

  140. No just have the lemon, do not add sugar and salt or tequila. Yes fresh lemon is excellent for calcium kidney stones

  270. 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

  271. 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.

  272. 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.

For the past 2 years now I have been drinking lemon tea with honey and a little slice of ginger to taste (sometimes) every morning. I can tell you I have no stomach issues at all. No more pills to help me digest. Please note this will not happen overnight, it takes time and true discipline. I peel my lemons, slice them into wedges and pop them in the freezer. Every morning I take out 2 wedges and my honey, warm water and good to go. Hopefully this helps someone out there. Peace and Love , All is well

  306. 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).

    You can mix it which is disgusting so I recommend you squeeze the lemon and drink that and then drink a cup of coffee. Give yourself a moment to sit down to do this. Occasionally it seems to be enough to just drink the lemon or eat the cut up fruit but mostly not.

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.
