Drinking lemon water can help ease stomach pain.

Lemon water is good for stomach pain and indigestion as lemon water can help settle the stomach and improve digestion.

Lemon water also has high levels of acidity which works as a stimulant for production of stomach acids which break down food in the stomach and helps move the digestion of the food along more smoothly.
