Drink lemon water in the morning, before your breakfast to boost your metabolism and prevent the calories from “sticking” to the critical areas. Lemons not only support a healthy weight loss process, they also aid in the treatment of serious health problems.
Doctor Penny Stanway, author of the book “The Miracle of Lemons,” says that lemons are a real super-food. This citrus fruit will quench your thirst and decrease high body temperature. All you need is to squeeze one lemon in a glass of warm water -- That’s it.
In addition to being super-healthy, lemons will also give you the thin waist you dream of.
1. Weight loss
Lemon water stimulates weight loss and prevents accumulation of fat in critical areas. For optimal results, drink some lemon juice in the morning, before your breakfast to boost your metabolism and prevent the calories from “sticking” to the critical areas.
About 80 percent of the gallstones are cholesterol because the liver and bile cannot release it properly. The lack of stomach acid, caused by aging, stress or medications, affects bile contractions.
This explains the improper discharge of bile which later deposits in the cholesterol stones. Eat more foods that have the ability to act same as the stomach acid and “encourage” bile contractions, which eventually leads to elimination of small stones. Lemons are the best choice!
Lemons are excellent expectorants -- they stimulate secretions, which is why they are your best friends in the season of colds and flu. A five-year study conducted in Singapore involved 63,000 people and revealed that diet rich in proteins can relieve chronic cough.
Flavonoids have strong antioxidant properties and they prevent inflammation of the lungs and reduce any damages to the tissue.
Drink fresh lemonade to prevent cough. You can also slice the lemon and dump the slices in a liter of water. Add crushed flax seeds and cook for about 20 minutes. Flax seeds are also an amazing expectorant. Strain and sweeten with organic honey.
This chronic skin disease requires peristent and systemic treatment.
Believe it or not, the citric acid in lemons works well on dry skin and reduces flaking. It also restores skin moisture and aids in the removal of dead skin.
Apply some lemon juice directly on the affected area few times a day, then stay for a few minutes in the sun. Within a few weeks, increase the time you spend in the sun. Lemon juice is rich in psoralens, natural substances found in plants.
They are sensitive to UVA rays and affect the skin. Dermatologists often prescribe oral or topical application of psoralens in combination with UVA treatment as a super-effective therapy for psoriasis.
Lemons are rich in pectin, a fiber that converts into gel in the intestine and stimulates intestinal contractions. Cellulose attracts water, which improves digestion. Add lemon juice and lemon peel to your everyday diet. Always use organic lemons.
Lemons are rich in potassium which balances body fluids. Magnesium relaxes arteries. Flavonoids give lemons their yellow color. These strengthen capillaries and stimulate the flow of oxygen, thus protecting the vascular health.
Vitamin C increases the level of nitric oxide, a gas that signals your body to relax and dilates blood vessels. Lemon juice resembles certain drugs that are commonly prescribed in the treatment of hypertension (ACE inhibitors), because it inhibits the production of angiotensin in the kidneys, a hormone that tightens blood vessels and makes your blood pressure go up.
7. Urinary infections
Poor dietary choices are not something you need if you are dealing with bladder inflammation, because acidic urin only makes the situation worse and increases pain.
The pH value of the urine varies between 4.5 and 9, but the ideal pH value is between 5.8 and 6.8. If you by any chance did not know it, lemons create an alkaline environment in your body!
Drink some lemon water 2-3 times a day. Use it as a substitute for vinegar. Some people even add it to sauces, but it is great when added in fish specialties. Lemon juice makes fruit salads even more delicious, and keeps the fruit slices fresh for longer.
