If the food simply tastes too good, it can happen that you overindulge. Often, however, this leaves an unpleasant feeling of tension in the stomach. A drink can help to counteract the feeling of fullness.

It is not uncommon to overeat at Easter. Most people are plagued by a feeling of fullness and then reach for a drink to stimulate digestion.

But that’s a misconception, because the liquor has the opposite effect and actually slows down digestion. This makes you feel like you’ve overfed for even longer. Some other things help much better – including a completely different drink.

Lemon water helps against the feeling of fullness. The drink can also actually have a positive effect on digestion: lemon water promotes the production of stomach acid and thus relieves the feeling of fullness after large meals.

Lemon water not only contains important minerals for the body, but also stimulates digestion. The digestive enzymes stimulate digestion in a natural way.

Lemon water also has other positive effects on the body. Minerals such as magnesium and potassium enter the blood and support muscles and the heart, among other things. Thanks to lemon water, toxins and harmful substances are excreted from the body via urine – this is mainly due to its slightly diuretic effect. Lemons are also a real miracle cure for constipation.

Preparing lemon water is really easy. Just add the juice of half a lemon to a glass of cold or lukewarm water. And the power drink is ready!

If you weigh more than 80 kilos, use a whole lemon for the same amount of water. If it is a bit too sour at first, you can sweeten it with honey. By the way: Lemon water not only helps with a feeling of fullness, constipation or a bloated stomach, but also with stomach pressure, heartburn or acid reflux.
