Kunska advises not to abuse this drink. It is recommended to drink no more than two to three glasses of lemon water per day.
“It is recommended to drink such water 30 minutes before eating. You should not drink water with lemon on an empty stomach; it is better to start the day with a few glasses of pure water without additives. Do not drink with food, as this slows down the digestion process. A few sips are allowed to soften the food lump,” the expert explained.
