Can I Drink Lemon Water With Honey?
Hello doctor. I’ve read that it’s best to drink lemon water without added sugar. Is this true for honey too? thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically no negative reaction will occur if you mix lemon water with sugar. Nutrient content in lemon water will not be reduced by this mixture as well as the benefits of lemons for the body. The same thing applies if you want to mix lemon water with honey.
Sugar or honey will only add to the calorie content in lemon water, so if your goal is to consume lemon water to lose weight, then mixing sugar or honey into the lemon water you drink will increase the number of calories that enter your body and decrease weight the body will not occur if the incoming calories remain a lot. However, there are no specific restrictions for mixing sugar or honey in lemon water. You also need to know that although lemon water does have more nutrients than water (lemon water has a high vitamin C content), research shows that lemon water consumption does not have a higher benefit for weight loss than regular water consumption.
Note that lemon water has acidic properties, so it is recommended to mix lemon juice with plain water (so it is not too acidic). If you have certain diseases in your stomach, consult your doctor first before you consume lemon water regularly.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
