When life gives you a lemon, goes the saying, you're supposed to make lemonade.

But research advises that you should rather squeeze the lemon, mix it with warm distilled water and then drink the liquid twice a day.

Warm lemon water serves as the perfect "good morning" drink because it aids the digestive system and makes the process of eliminating waste products from the body much easier.

Lemon water also prevents constipation and diarrhoea and ensures smooth bowel functions.

Lemon, a fruit popular for its therapeutic properties, helps promote your immune system and thus protects you from most infections. It is also a blood purifier. Lemons are Mother Nature's antiseptics.

Lemon water works wonders for people with heart problems because of its high potassium content. So, if you know what is good for you, you will make it a part of your daily routine.

Due to the digestive qualities of lemon juice, symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, bloating and belching are relieved.

The lemon is a wonderful stimulant to the liver and is a dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons, liquefies the bile and is very good for treating malaria.

Sufferers of chronic rheumatism and gout will benefit by taking lemon juice, as will those who suffer from uterine haemorrhages, rickets and tuberculosis. In pregnancy, lemon water helps to build the baby's bones.

As a food, owing to its potassium content, lemons will nourish the brain and nerve cells. Its calcium builds the bony structure and makes healthy teeth.

Magnesium, in conjunction with calcium, has an important part to play in the formation of albumen in the blood.

Lemons are useful in treating a number of ailments, including asthma, biliousness, colds, coughs, sore throats, diphtheria, influenza, heartburn, liver complaints, scurvy, fevers and also rheumatism.

The energy you get from your food comes from the atoms and molecules of energy in the food. A reaction takes place as cationic food enters the digestive tract and encounters anionic digestive enzymes. To explain further, an ion is part of a molecule con-atom or a group of atoms that carry an electrical charge. Ions which carry negative charges are anions.

Lemons are considered to be anionic, having more anions (negatively charged ions) of energy as compared to cations (positively charged ions) in their atomic structure. Lemon is one of the only foods on the planet that has more anions than cations in its atomic structure.

Lemon water should be taken by anyone who can tolerate it. That is, if the person is not allergic to lemons. Fortunately, very few people have a true allergy to lemons.

If there are no active ulcers, then all adults and most children should drink lemon water.

Lemons are natural strengthening agents to the liver enzymes when they are too diluted. The liver can make more enzymes out of fresh lemon juice than any other food element. It helps to fix oxygen and calcium in the liver because it regulates blood carbohydrate levels, which affect the blood oxygen levels.
