Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

Warm water with lemon is definitely helpful. It helps in many ways.
Firstly it helps clear the bowels in the morning.

Secondly vitamin C in lemon is helpful along with other nutritional benefits of lemon.

It also helps lower cholesterol levels in blood by slowing their absorption from the gut. Thus it helps reduce weight.

Then it also helps balance out the normal flora of the gut.

So its benefits are manifold.

Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
