Nowadays due to poor lifestyle and food, weight gain has become a common problem. In order to control the weight, people try different methods. Some are doing gym, walking, running and some are trying to reduce their weight through dieting. At the same time, there are some people who are trying to reduce their maximum weight through home remedies. A very common home remedy is drinking lemon water. Often people put lemon in warm water and drink it on an empty stomach in the morning. But the question is whether there is really any benefit by drinking lemon mixed with warm water. Let’s know…

Drinking hot water with lemon is a myth

Lemon contains vitamin C. Drinking this makes our immune system very strong. Along with this, our digestive system also improves. But the question is whether drinking lemon mixed with warm water melts body fat. For your information, let us tell you that this is just a myth. According to the news published in Navbharat Times, there is no such thing that if you drink lemon in hot water daily, then your body fat gets reduced. Drinking a few drops of lemon in hot water reduces fat, this is just a myth. So the question arises whether we should not drink water after adding lemon to it?

Drinking lemon water benefits the skin

Drinking lemon in hot water keeps the skin hydrated. Also the skin starts glowing. It contains vitamin C due to which wrinkles are reduced. And there is no dry skin.

It is also not right to drink honey mixed with lemon water.

Surprisingly, Ayurvedic experts believe that this combo can be harmful for your health. According to Ayurveda, the nature of hot water and honey are opposite to each other. It can cause disease for the stomach. Drinking this can also cause digestive problems. There may also be a rash. The taste of lemon is sour, slightly sticky and sticky and hot in effect. On the other hand, honey is sweet, heavy and dry in taste and cool in effect. A mixture of honey and lemon promotes healing, but Ayurveda recommends using both with any hot substance (including hot water) as this changes their natural properties, which in turn is not good for our digestive and immune systems.

There is no benefit of drinking hot water with lemon in it.

Drinking hot water and lemon does not reduce your weight. It’s also possible to swap sweet tea or coffee for honey-lemon-water to reduce calories. There are some people who squeeze lemon into boiling water, let it cool, and then drink it. This is not advisable because Vitamin C is heat unstable and sensitive to light. Its potency weakens with heat and the more you expose it to light. The sooner it starts spoiling.
