Is lemon tea good for weight loss?
Lemon tea is healthy, but it’s not that effective for weight loss. If you want to drink tea known to increase metabolism and fat burning, you should reach for a cup of good quality green tea.
Lemon tea may stimulate digestion and help with the stomach and small intestine function. I also like lemon, lemon juice, and lemon tea is because research tells us that they all inhibit bacteria. Lemon has a nice cleansing effect on the small intestine as well.
A 2010 study published in the American nutrition journal involved giving obese people four cups of green tea per day for eight weeks. The researchers compared the weight loss results of the tea drinkers to people who were drinkings four cups of water per day. The tea drinkers lost five pounds, and the water drinkers remained the same.

It is thought that green tea helps with weight loss through its caffeine and polyphenol content. Lemon tea, in contrast, doesn’t contain caffeine.
I’m not opposed to including caffeine in your diet. Just don’t drink twenty-five cups of coffee per day. But one good cup of espresso in the morning is a delight.
Even though lemon tea doesn’t seem to facilitate weight loss, I still highly recommend including lemon in any form in your diet. Both lemon and lime improve gallbladder function. Lemon can also help with bowel movements and with oily skin. There’s probably a hundred and one uses for lemon, but rapid weight loss isn’t one of them.
