In summer, many girls like to drink lemon water, because it is refreshing and anti-aging. However, regarding lemonade, there are many people who use it incorrectly, which makes lemonade not only taste bad, but also greatly reduce the effect. This article will tell you how to properly make a glass of lemonade.

1. Choose fresh lemons

The fresh lemon scent is particularly strong. Dried lemons have a less intense aroma, and dried lemons have less vitamin C. Before use, rub the lemon with flour, then rub the skin with a handful of salt to remove the residual pesticide and wax, and finally rinse with water twice.

2. Lemon slices

Fresh lemons should be cut into 2-3 mm thin slices with the peel, because the peel is also healthy, and drinking it in hot weather can quench your thirst. A normal-sized lemon can be cut into about 15-20 slices.

3. Refrigerate lemons for two days

After slicing, put it into an airtight container, add honey, add cold water to submerge the lemon slices, cover the container, and store in the refrigerator for about two days. Slicing and refrigerating is better than cutting on-the-fly!

4. The water temperature should not exceed 70℃

The water temperature is more suitable at 60-70℃. The water used to make lemons is too cold to excite the aroma of lemons; if brewed with hot water, it is easy to destroy vitamin C, and more bitter substances are dissolved, affecting the taste and nutrition.

5. 200ml lemonade a day

Citric acid is strong and should not be consumed in large quantities. Generally, drinking a glass of lemon water (200 ml) a day is almost enough, and put 2-4 lemon slices in a glass of water. If you think it is too sour, you can add honey to reconcile it, usually a small spoonful is enough, no more and no less.

If you want to use lemonade instead of boiled water to quench your thirst, the taste must be light. A large slice of lemon with peel can be soaked in 1 liter of water, you can drink 3 to 4 small cups, usually brewed 2 to 3 times.

When you can't drink the lemon flavor, you can replace it with a new lemon. The resulting lemonade is neither sour nor bitter.

6. One lemon lasts a week

About 1000-2000 ml of water should be added to a lemon, according to personal preference for acidity. A lemon can be drunk for about a week, and the nutritional value will be seriously shrunk if left too long.

The vitamin C in lemons is easily oxidized after encountering the air. It is best to drink the prepared lemonade as soon as possible. The unused lemon slices should be refrigerated in time.

There are many benefits of drinking lemon water, such as:

1. Improve digestion

Drinking lemon water can promote digestion in the stomach. When your digestive function is not very good, you can drink some lemon water to promote the secretion of gastric acid and make food easier to digest and absorb.

2. Clear stool

People who drink lemon water for a long time have a relatively clean intestine, which is not easy to cause constipation.

3. Supplement with vitamin C

Lemonade contains a lot of vitamin C and P, which not only can supplement the vitamins needed by the body every day, but also promote the production of collagen in the skin more easily, making people look younger.

4. Eliminate free radicals

Drinking more lemon water can effectively eliminate free radicals in the human body, prevent cancer, maintain a healthy body, and create a more energetic mental state.

So, drink more lemonade and be the most beautiful girl.
