Lemon and mint water is a healthy and invigorating alternative for those who struggle to drink enough water because they do not care for the taste. Even if you enjoy the taste of water, infusing it with this combo not only hydrates but also offers detoxing benefits.
Lemon water enhances immunity and boosts energy and mood. Mint leaves improve digestive health and help oral hygiene. When added to water, mint provides a touch of sweetness without the sugar. Both lemon and mint are excellent sources of vitamin C.
This refreshing and hydrating drink is perfect to enjoy first thing in the morning!
