Kourtney Kardashian wrote a blog post on her website on May 16 on why adding lemon to your water — hot or cold — is so good for you. “Ever wonder why spas always put lemon in drinking water? Experts say that 8 to 12 ounces of filtered water with fresh lemon first thing in the morning will help jump-start your metabolism. It also helps detox your liver. Moreover, the citric acid in lemons helps with digestion and reduces muscle and joint pain, while the vitamin C helps fight against infections like the common cold and the flu. Pretty impressive for just one fruit!”

Kourtney continues: “I like to start my day with a cup of hot lemon water. The zesty smell helps wake me up — and it’s a good option if I’m trying to avoid caffeine. I also noticed that I drink more water throughout the day when I add lemon — so I keep fresh slices in my fridge at home.”
