The answer isn’t always a pill. Indeed, unnecessary medication puts your liver, kidneys and stomach under strain that could otherwise have been avoided. This is why we often turn to natural remedies to provide prevention or cure.

In fact, something as simple as a cup of water with some lemon juice in it could help prevent, or even treat, a huge range of health issues.

Bad breath, dry skin, stomach ulcers and weight issues are just a handful of issues that can be alleviated by frequently sipping on some warm lemon water, especially as winter sets in.

Why? What wizardry goes on inside a lemon that gives it so many benefits?

It’s simple, really. A lemon is packed with vitamin C, which is incredibly important for maintaining good health. There are also a host of other vitamins and minerals that perform various roles.

And, of course, it’s entirely natural. It won’t put your body under stress and there’s no limit on how long you can take it for. It’s basically a win, win, win, win, win.
