Lemon water has countless benefits, but you get them only if you drink it the right way. Usually, people make some small mistakes while consuming it. So, in this article today, Dietitian RituPuri of ESIC Hospital, Central Government Hospital, is telling you about some such mistakes, which people do while drinking lemonade-
Drinking too much
It is seen that most people like to drink lemonade at the beginning of their day. Since the metabolic rate of the body is high at that time and in such a situation, if lemonade is drunk, then it benefits health. However, during this time you should pay special attention to its quantity. Drinking a glass of lemon water early in the morning is enough if you do not drink more than two glasses of lemonade at all. Lemon is acidic, and hence its excessive consumption can cause acidity problems in the body. Not only this, but it also increases the chances of getting acid reflux.
Making lemonade in cold water
Some people consume lemon squeezed in cold water during the test. It may sound tasty to drink, but in reality, you do not get enough benefits of lemonade by doing so. Therefore, always try to prepare lemonade with the help of lukewarm water at least in the morning.
Add lemon only
This is a common mistake that most people make. Usually, health-conscious people just squeeze lemon in water, but you should not do this. Along with lemon, you must also add honey to the water. Mixing honey in lemonade helps in balancing its pH level. Also, it makes it taste better and it does not feel sour to drink.
Drink lemonade throughout the day
Some people have the habit that they drink lemonade at the beginning of the day, but also consume lemonade several times a day. But excessive consumption of lemonade is also not considered good for health. This can give you a problem with tooth enamel. It would be better if you consume plain water coconut water, buttermilk or other types of detox water during the day.
So now whenever you drink lemonade, avoid repeating these little mistakes.
