Benefits Of Drinking Lemon Juice For Athletes

Drinking lemon juice can be very beneficial to the body. Making it a daily routine can be helpful in keeping you healthy. The healthier you are, the more time you can train in the gym and the less down time you are forced to spend from that nasty flu or cold.

Benefits of Drinking Lemon Juice (With Water)

Benefit 1: It Boosts Your Immune System

Lemons are high in vitamin C, which strengthens the immune system. Drinking lemons in liquid form (lemon juice) allows quick and usable absorption when your body needs it. Drinking it often allows your body to utilize the vitamin whenever you have a deficiency, which you might be unaware of. Dont wait for sickness to let you know youre vitamin C deficient. You dont know when you need vitamin C, so taking it regularly will do wonders to prevent the sickness you didnt know you were going to get.  This proactive approach allows you to fight off illness BEFORE you get sick, not when youre already sick and its too late.

Benefit 2: Lemon Juice Makes You Look Good From The Inside

Lemon juice is used topically on the skin to help with pimples, wrinkles and to fade freckles. But taking it through a drink will make you look better from the inside out. It will give a healthy glow and radiance to your skin.

Benefit 3: It Provides Energy, Suppresses Appetite and Helps Fat Loss

Drinking lemon juice is a gentle, subtle way of losing fat without sacrificing any muscle. Even if its a few grams of fat a day, doing this daily will make a huge difference over a few months. 

Benefit 4: Lemon Juice Detoxes

Lemon juice aids the body in release of toxins in the blood and muscles. Furthermore, if you drink warm lemon juice and water first think in the morning, it helps you digestive system and allows your body to eliminate its natural waste easier and smoother. Think of lemon juice as the crowd control of your colon. 

Benefit 5: Healthy Alternative to Water 

Pure water is the healthiest thing to drink and should form the majority of all your beverage consumption. A squirt of lemon in your water once a day is a nice break from the boring taste of plain water, but wont have any negative health impacts as long as you dont overdo it (see tips and advice below). A squirt of lemon juice in water is also extremely low in calories. 

Benefit 6: Vitamins and Minerals 

Lemon juice has other useful nutrients that are good for the body and increase overall health as well. These nutrients include potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin A and pectin fiber.

Benefit 7: Anti-Bacterial Properties 

The antibacterial properties in lemon juice make it a good remedy for sore throats (and preventing them) and helping the fight against any other bacteria you arent aware of around you. Lemon juice is also antiseptic. 

Benefit 8: Heart and Physical Performance

Lemon juice thins your blood which is good for your heart, circulation and cardiovascular system. Your body will have an easier time and be more efficient in delivering nutrients to your muscles during training.

Tips and Advice

Be Tooth Smart

Drink lemon juice diluted in water. Lemon juice is acidic and can cause tooth decay, so dont drink it on its own and be sure NOT to drink it before or after brushing your teeth. As long as you do this, it wont have a negative effect on your teeth.

Dont Overdo It 

Lemon juice thins your blood, which is a good thing, but with too much thinning your blood wont be able to clot if you cut yourself and your blood will keep flowing, causing more blood loss than normal. One glass of lemon water (2-4 table spoons lemon juice mixed with water) daily is enough to get all the benefits of lemon juice, without thinning the blood too much.
