Flavonoids have light bitter and sour lemon itself with a hot day drink more thirst. The remaining lemon can be coated with some honey in the incision, wrapped with plastic wrap, can be stored in the refrigerator for three days.
2, water temperature is more suitable for 60~70degC.
If the water is too cool, the fragrance is not easy to get out. As with immersion in boiling water, bitter substances will have more dissolution, such as hesperidin etc..

Lemon peel, including other orange peel, contain some of the bitterness of flavonoids, are also beneficial ingredients, a touch of bitterness, and Sour mix. When the weather is hot, drink more to quench their thirst.
5, add a little honey or sugar into the lemon water will taste better
However, light sweet lemonade contains about 5% sugar, a cup of sugar honey water (200 grams) containing energy of 40 thousand cards. If you drink two cups, the equivalent of eating 1/4 Steamed Rice bowl, so it should be limited when the people who need to control the weight. In addition, hyperacidity people only need to try to soak a little light lemon water you can drink, because a small amount of citric acid is beneficial to the repair of gastric mucosa.
For indigestion people, in pale lemon water with a thin piece of ginger, it is great to promote the secretion of digestive juice and benefits. Do not add sugar pale lemon water without sodium, almost does not contain energy, and contains potassium, a small amount of vitamin C and a small amount of flavonoids, very suitable for hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease and gout in patients with chronic daily drinking.
6, sealing preservation can be postponed
The lemon can be easy stored in normal condition. The main problem is lemon surface dry, but after dry can still be used, within a month still juicy inside. Cut lemon incision spread some honey to water retention, and then wrapped with plastic wrap, in the crisper put two or three days is no problem.
Lemon can also be used to immerse themselves in water, but because leather aromas have been lost, vitamin C is also a loss, the fragrance of lemon water will be not a small discount, but still can used to make lemon tea, can provide some of citric acid and potassium.
