It’s important to start your morning in the best way possible for both your body and mind – drinking warm water with lemon has so many benefits, there’s no reason NOT to try it. I’ve been drinking hot water and lemon everyday for the last five years and I absolutely love it.
Here are the top 9 reasons to start and a video for your viewing pleasure:
The Benefits of Warm Water and Lemon:

I love lemon & water but don’t often do it with hot or warm water. Sounds like a miracle drink. :]

I’m the same, I struggle drinking the warm or hot water, but can do it with the cold
great post. I love drinking lemon water in the morning. I really notice a benefit to my skin when I am consistent with this habit.

I love drinking lemon and water, I used to hate it because I’m not a huge fan of lemon so had to dilute it loads but now I’m used to it, I think I prefer lemon water because it’s so refreshing!
I drink it every morning! So good and refreshing. One tipp I would like to add: drink it with a straw! Otherwise I notice that my teeth start to hurt in the front after a few days.
I wonder…must it be fresh squeezed lemon juice..or can it be Realemon…from the bottle?
ReaLemon is not. Why would you drink sodium benzoate or sodium metabisulfite? That’s what’s in it. Keep a bunch of lemons in your fridge- I cut one up and put in a glass container – makes it easier on sleepy mornings.
It should be REAL lemon, as in freshly squeezed. That Realemon product, contains all sorts of other ingredients used as preservatives that negate the 9 benefits listed above.
I drink a lot of water and lemon – but surprisingly have never tried hot water with lemon. Does chilled water with lemon have the same effects?
I have heard many benefits of drinking water with lemon but didn’t know that it has the effect of mood-enhancing! Thanks for sharing!
Yeah, I like it too but the dentist says it is not good for your teeth.
Does anyone know why it has to be exactly lemon juice in hot water? Why not a regular glass of water, with a citrus fruit “on the side”, and perhaps some tea? Or any other combination or way…? Why is the precise combination of lemon juice in hot water considered to be better? To me, it’s a bit strange…although I do like to drink water in the morning when one is dehydrated after a nights sleep.
After me questioning the combination I did a search and found this article where a doctor comments on warm water and lemon: http://www.shape.com/healthy-eating/diet-tips/ask-diet-doctor-hot-lemon-waters-real-benefits
I’ve been meaning to give lemon and hot water a go for ages now.
You’ve finally persuaded me I need to start drinking if now!!
I always drink cucumber and lemon water, but I never drink it warm. I’ve tried and warm water is too hard for me to get past.
Can you provide medical citations for any of these claims? Lemon water is bad for your teeth. Your liver does a fine job of “detoxing” your system without any help. If your body is out of pH balance, you’d better head to an ER. Citations, please?
I am always so lazy to do this in the morning and reach straight for the eggs! I will start tomorrow!
I’ve been doing this for a couple of years now and it has been wonderfully beneficial, I rave about it to everyone who will listen! I used to get really nasty colds 1-2 times a year, now they just last for about 4 days & are really mild. The immunity benefits alone are worth it.
A clue regarding teeth: dont swish the lemon water through your teeth, just knock it back so it doesn’t touch the teeth. x
I always try to start off my day with water and lemons, I feel like it gives me a much better start to the day 🙂

I started to drink warm water with lemons last year because my dietetics recommended to me. And it truly helps to get rid of some pounds extra 🙂 In the beginning, I found it disgusting, but now I can’t imagine a morning without it 🙂 Love! ♥
Nice video! Where is that robe from? It’s absolutely gorgeous! 🙂 xx
Wow,it sounds convincing so I would try it 😉
Love to drink warm water and 4 drops of lemon essential oil from young living.
It definitely has to become part of my healthy routine 🙂
I love this post! I’ve been drinking warm water with a full lemon juiced every morning for a while now and feel amazing. I can really tell a difference and love that you wrote about it!
I drink lemon garlic gingir.honey and apple cidar with warm water daily morning. It was prescribed some 1400 years ago by prophet Muhammad Mustafa (S.A.W.S). I had a cardiac complication some 10 years ago.went through Engo plasty.later I still had some complications.So I started drinking it.Whish has been very fruitfull all through this period..If any one want its preperation formula.contact me through my email
great send me the reciepe pleas:):)
I’ve been drinking warm lemon water in the morning for about a year and I love it! It’s so refreshing and although I haven’t noticed all the benefits you wrote, my immune system certainly got stronger and my skin clearer!
Thanks for sharing this beautiful list. I also recommend everyone to try this out. 🙂
I’ve been doing this for the past 2 years and love it. To reduce the acid on my teeth I drink it with a straw and also swish my mouth with a mixture of water and baking soda after, which neutralizes the acid.
A real time saver is I put a few lemons through my juicer and freeze the lemon juice in ice cubes. I take one and toss it in warm water.
I’m the same, I struggle drinking the warm or hot water, but can do it with the cold
A lot of people swear by this. I should finally give it a try since Im also starting out with the Fit Girl Guide tomorrow to shes off some lbs. thanks for the video!
Have made it a part of my morning routine! Love lemon and water 🙂
I am even trying to grow my own lemons. No fruits as yet, but I am hopeful.
Has anyone of you an idea, if drinking hot water with lemon right before the morning coffee might have any negative effects on the stomach or digestion?
I tried it out the other day, but somehow I got stomachache when I had my coffee after drinking the lemon-water. It would be such a pity, because I really don’t want to give up my morning coffee 🙁
I drink my coffee right after and have not had any effects from doing this.
How long from the hot water&lemon and the breakfast?
30 mins minimum
The excellent nutritionist from Natural Grocers among others has said room temperature or warm.
I love this post! It definitely has to become part of my breakast 🙂
Love this!!! I always drink hot water and lemon in the morning so this is great to hear 🙂
I would recommend adding a tablespoon of honey to this combination of (real) lemon + hot water, which here in India, is widely advocated by Nature Cure/Nature Remedies/Home Remedies activists. Have you tried ever?
yes! or agave syrup:)
Do it every morning! And it is definitely incredible!
Lots of love, xx
I love this kind of tips !
I will try 🙂
Great post! I am also a huge fan of lemon juice and use it in cooking all the time. Here is my post on how to always have lemon juice on hand! It’s ideal and always tastes fresh squeezed.

Yes, this is wonderful for many things! One tip from my dentist (who isnt’t crazy about me doing this) is to swish with water and wait 20 minutes before eating anything hard or brushing. Apparently the lemon makes tooth enamel more prone to damage.
I drink lemon (lime) water every morning, but I use cold water in summer and hot in winter
Definitely good for the body & skin but extremely bad for your teeth.
Please, please heavily recommend for people to use a straw!!
Thanks for sharing amazing benefits of drinking warm water with lemon in the morning. I will definitely try to make it habit. Because it seems it has so many health benefits. It is another good way to increase water intake.
After drinking warm water with lemon in the morning, I always flush every day. Thus, keeping my waste excreted every day compared before that I seldom do it.
it is necessary to drink a lemon warm water every morning I think. and I do it really. thanks your tips and it is helpful
Curious…my cousin is allergic to lemons. Would limes have similar benefits?
