Water with Lemon – What’s the Hype?

Lately there has been a lot of hype in the health industry about the benefits of drinking water with lemon.  Particularly, a glass of warm water with the juice of half a lemon squeezed in first thing every morning.  (Trust me…this takes some getting used to). 

So what’s all the fuss about?  And will a daily lemon water help your Virtual Assistance business? Research shows, it might.

Check out some of the ways chugging that glass of lemony liquid can benefit your biz:

  • PAUSE PAIN:  A daily dose of lemon water combats pain.  It can be torture to sit through a work day if you experience joint pain, toothaches or even a sore throat.  Lemon water is a natural anti-inflammatory that can help reduce pain in muscles, joints and inflamed tissues, leaving you feeling tickety-boo and helping you meet the demands of your business.


  • COMBAT COLDS:  Lemon water can stop a cold in it’s tracks, BEFORE it knocks you into bed rest and missing work.  With high levels of  potassium, calcium, magnesium and other electrolytes and antioxidants, this is one beverage that fights infections, soothes sore throats and strengthens your immune system so you won’t have to miss a day or a deadline.


  • BRING BEAUTY:  Oooh – la – la.  Did you know your morning sips of lemon water can enhance your skin?  Vitamin C increases collagen production and prevents pesky wrinkles.  Lemon water can also assist in weight loss by acting as an appetite suppressant, causing you to eat less and feel full longer.  Want beautiful breath too?  Lemon water kills yucky bacteria in the mouth and can assist with gingivitis and freshen your breath.  Feeling beautiful increases confidence – and increased confidence is good for business.


  • BOOST BRAINY-NESS:  The potassium in lemon water can strengthen brain and nerve function, lifting feelings of depression and helping you feel more alert.  Lemon water is a pretty great choice to help you breeze through your busy days, feeling sharp and boosting your mood.
