Improve your digestion with a glass of lemon juice. Lemon water has a chemical structure that is very similar to stomach juices. Adding lemon water to your diet can encourage your liver’s production of bile – an acid that is vital for digestion. It naturally loosens and eliminates toxins that have accumulated along the digestive tract.
Lemon water can also aid with bathroom trips. When you consume lemon water, when it reaches the the colon and stool, bile production is stimulated, ensuring that bowel movements are smooth. So much so that The American Cancer Society has recommended lemon water for cancer sufferers to aid with the simulation of bowel movements.
