Fresh lemon juice contains nutrients that help to improve glucose metabolism. According to studies, drinking fresh lemon juice or adding lemon juice to dishes can help in reducing the glycaemic index (GI) of the meal. It slows down the rate at which glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream, thus regulating blood sugar levels.

Regulating blood sugar levels with lemon juice
• Try drinking lemon juice about 5-10 minutes before a meal to prevent post-meal glucose rise.
• Consuming lemon juice with artificial sweeteners such as stevia, monk fruit instead of sugar can help to reduce any spike in blood sugar.
• Adding some lemon juice to carb-rich, starchy foods like potatoes, bread, rice, etc. can help to reduce spikes in blood sugar by reducing the gastric emptying time.
• Lemon juice with some salt added is a great post-workout drink and is a wonderful way to replenish electrolytes lost via sweating.

Lemon juice can help to boost the glucose metabolism in the body and regulate blood sugar levels. Apart from this, lemon juice also helps to boost the immune system, improve the skin, gut health and digestion and also helps in weight loss.
