I usually recommend people consuming lemon squeezed into water around 15 minutes before a meal, ideally firstly in the morning before any consumption of food and continued throughout the day before each meal if desired.
Lemon assists with the digestion of foods due to it’s acidity which stimulates the secretion of digestive juices.
Lemon is a good source of vitamin C and is considered a low FODMAP food.
Warm lemon water is indicated also for people suffering with cold symptoms, sore throats, tonsillitis or bronchitis.
It is also considered a tonic for the gallbladder.
Lemon water is also a great recommendation for people who dislike the taste of water and who struggle to hit recommended water intake targets.
