- It Is Miraculous In Losing Weight: Today there are so many articles published throughout the websites that claim that lemon is miraculous when it comes to burn fat which is not true. Yes it does help burn your fat but not as effectively as it has been represented throughout the websites. In the year 2003 a study published in Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism reported that when lemon water is paired with a balanced and nutritional diet then it can be more beneficial than taking it alone. Lemon water doesn’t burn your fat but it’s just that if you take lemon water rather than juice or soda then you will consume lesser amount of calories.

You will be amazed to know that a lemon contains only 1-2 grams of fibers. This amount of fiber is not enough to do something extra in your body.
- It Fights Cancer: It has been said that intake of lemon juice alkalizes your body that stimulate the pH of your body and cancer cells can’t thrive in alkaline environment. This is only a misconception; studies have shown that cancer cells have the ability to nurture themselves in alkaline environment as well.
