Lemon helps in improving digestion (relieving symptoms of indigestion, such as heartburn, belching and bloating), metabolism and also it helps the body regulate the absorption of sugar from the food you eat everyday.

You can mix lemon and water in a bottle to take to work for example, this will also keep you hydrated through out the day. Or you can fill a jug with warm water with lemon inside at home or in the office too.
