    Boosts hydrochloric acid production
    Natural diuretic
    Antibacterial properties
    Aids with gastric upsets such as heartburn and indigestion
    Purifies the blood
    Promotes healthy liver enzyme levels
    Promotes circulation in the liver
    Helps dissolve uric acid in the joints
    Acts as a natural solvent for calcium deposits, kidney stones, pancreatic stones, and gallstones
    The vitamin C nourishes and rejuvenates your skin from the inside, bringing you a healthy glow

    Energy Boost & Hydration
    Citric acid in lemon is highly electrically active, and pure water acts as a conductor to deliver electrolytes directly to your cells. It’s liken to a liquid sunshine burst that boosts cell energy and nourishes your adrenals for a clean energy output that sustains you throughout your day. This is why lemon water is so effective with helping people kick the coffee habit. Coffee is dehydrating and stresses your adrenals. Although you’re temporarily energized, this kind of dirty energy is actually very draining and depletes your body’s energy reserves.

    I just heard it would help reduce belly fat! It's something I am trying to include in my diet.

    It wont reduce belly fat. However, I drink a ton of water and have started putting mint and lime in it just to switch things up, it tastes good and refreshing.

    your mandated chlorine residual means that your water almost certainly contains trihalomethanes which can cause cancers..

    I suggest active carbon filtration at a minimum. I can sell you a whole house filter for 2K+...

    I think that plain water is a good detox. You could add something for flavor but I don't think it would be better than water.

    How on earth are you increasing stomach acid production while simultaneously increasing pH levels? Also the blood purification bit.. seriously??

    Wait, so coffee is a magic weight loss agent too now? Because, I don't know about you, but my energy reserves are glycogen and fat. How many calories worth of fat does one cup burn through?

    The claim (from the woo-mongers) is that lemon magically raises the pH of BLOOD, not the stomach. Although how a small amount of lemon juice is going to affect the pH of my carbonate-buffered blood is beyond me. In fact, it would be very worrying if true, as I like my blood to be at the correct pH (hence why we have the buffering system in the first place).

    Has anyone been consuming water with lemon, mint and ginger or anything similar? Or anyone tried cinnamon tea?
    is it making any difference?

    Was the person telling you about detox water overweight?-- because I usually find its the fat ones who swear by it. I have yet to have a person who has sucessfully lost weight and kept it off try and convince me to try this gimick.

    If anything these types of drinks will increase your water intake and that has a positive impact on your weightloss goals. Its not the detoxifying ingredients like lemon, mint, ginger or cinnamon. They won't do anything for you though if you arent also at a caloric deficit. Go ahead and add them, they wont harm you but dont expect them to act like magic weightloss beans.

    I drink lemon water, orange water. etc. I drink it to hydrate as I do with plain old water. I use it because I only drink water, coffee, and tea,(for the most part), so it just adds a little flavor. It's not some kind of magic potion that will benefit you in any real way...adds a little vitamin C to water but nothing significant.

    Quoting stupid and incorrect statements and agreeing with them makes you just as bad as the person who copy/pasted it.

    Belly fat is caused by fat, which is caused by eating at a calorie surplus, not toxins. So even if you could detox with lemon or mint or ginger (you can't) it would do nothing for the fat.

    To lose belly fat, eat less and move more.

    Drink [lemon/ginger/mint/cinnamon/whatever] water if it tastes good to you. Staying hydrated (from the water) is good for overall health.

    eat fewer calories than are required for you to maintain your current weight and rock your nutrition...that's all there is too it...there are no magic potions...there are no magic pills...time of day doesn't matter...how many times per day you eat doesn't matter...green tea and cinnamon in your water doesn't matter.

    All that matters is that you are eating fewer calories than are required for you to maintain your weight...and I personally put a premium on nutrition as well. It really is that simple...there is no need to complicate what is not at all complicated.

    How exactly does a HIGHLY acidic food (lemons have a pH of 2.5) promote an alkaline pH?
