A honey lemon and water mixture has been used for centuries to heal people and prevent many diseases.
Taken separately, each of these substances is well known to have healing properties.
Honey is a nice sugary type of natural nectar. I just love it.
And I really like organic honey that comes directly from a friend of mine who is a local producer.
Honey has long been associated with powerful antibacterial properties.
And these properties can reinforce your immune system.
Overall, it does speed up the healing process in the body.
Why add lemon to honey?
However, in the remedy that we feature in today’s post, we add a great fruit to it, that is lemon.
Originally, lemon is a tropical fruit.
It has a high level of vitamin C.
And we all have heard how good this vitamin is for the proper functioning of our immune system.
So think how good will it be if we mix both honey and lemon with some water and make our own daily drink?
What you’ll end up with is a sweet and little bit acidic mixture consisting of both ingredients.
And the mixture will amplify both honey’s and lemon’s properties.
Basically, each ingredient of our beverage will amplify the property of the other ingredient.
What more do you want?
Think of this a little.
You wake up a bit tired.
And you have a nice drink of a homemade naturally sweet and acidic substance.
You wait for 10 to 20 minutes.
Your body starts to feel better. And your day starts with a body full of energy ready for the storm ahead.
But there is even more to this.
If you drink this beverage for a long time, say for one year continuously, then you’ll improve your overall health and managed to defeat many potential health problems.
Below I describe just 8 of these healing properties of my wonderful beverage.
How to prepare the honey lemon water drink
Here is how to prepare this great honey lemon drink.
- Take 1 cup (237 ml) water
- Get 2 teaspoons (14 g) of organic honey
- Buy 1 medium lemon
The drink preparation
First, start by juicing the lemon. Slice the lemon in a half with a knife.
Now, use a juicer to extract 2 teaspoons (which is about 10 ml) of juice. Please note that you better use an organic lemon for the drink.
Second, bring the water to a boil. To do so, just pour 1 cup (237 ml) of water into a small saucepan.
Heat the water on high until it comes to a boil but ensure that the water does not boil.
We would advise to use bottled or filtered water.
Now, add the honey and lemon to the warm water.
Stir slowly the mixture to help dissolve the honey.
The drink is ready for you to drink.
By the way, this is enough for one glass, but you can make plenty for the week and just warm it up in the morning. you just need to multiply by 7 days for the ingredients. Enjoy a healthy drink.
Honey lemon to reinforce your immune system
So the combination of the two ingredients complements each other.
They both arm you with a stronger and more reactive immune system.
By drinking a mixture combining lemon with some nice honey, then you should dramatically reduce the risk of infection, colds or even the one that we all hate, that is flu.
Honey lemon water to improve your energy levels
Drinking honey and lemon water enhance your energy levels. (3)
By drinking this substance, your energy levels will be boosted.
In fact, if you absorb it daily, then you’ll not need caffeine anymore.
You’ll only enjoy caffeine once in a while like me.
I only drink caffeine over the weekend for the taste, and not for staying awake anymore as I am full of energy.
Honey and lemon for weight loss
Eating lemon or drinking its natural juice stimulate bile production in your body.
This results in better nutrient absorption by your metabolism.
And at the same time, when you absorb honey, you allow your body to soothe your stomach.
As such, you help your stomach producing more mucus.
And more mucus means a more effective elimination of toxins.
Honey lemon mixed with water for glowing skin
Honey does stimulate your body collagen production in the skin.
On the other hand, lemons clean your blood of toxins.
Lemon and honey to prevent urinary tract infections
Honey is a powerful diuretic.
And when used in conjunction with lemon the effect are de-multiplied.

Lemon has an amazing ability to destroy bacteria.
But it has a hidden feature that very few know about. It does clean your oral cavity.
As such the combination of both substances in a mixture can prevent oral problems, including bad breath.
Lemon juice and honey to make your body alkaline
One of the important thing that we all need to watch out for is the right regulation of our pH (alkaline) levels.
Enjoying the right level of alkaline will make your body work better.
The lemon-honey mixte with water can prevent a number of diseases including one of the worse one, that cancer.
In this post, I have provided you with some great tips about lemon honey and water drink.
I seldom get flu in winter, and I think it is because of this beverage that I prepare myself at home.
It tastes good and has a great positive influence on my body.
So, I felt compelled to share it with you today so that you can reduce the amount of medication you take and start a healthier lifestyle.
This beverage will help your immune system, support weight control, enhance your energy levels, provide with nicer skin, and allow you to feel better.
So what are you waiting? Go and get some honey, water, and lemon and make your own beverage.
Back to you
It is clear that you cannot hope for a better type of preventing remedy.
You need three main things, water (am sure you have this at home), lemon (you can get some from your local shop), and a little bit of honey (which, again, you’ll find at your local shop).
So there is no excuse really. Get the ingredients and start leaving a healthy lifestyle.
I can ensure you that you’ll no be disappointed.
