Why You Need to Eat More Lemons

Written by the_chelf@yahoo.gr

 

Here are 3 reasons why, when life gives you lemons, you shoud eat them.

Magic Balance

Lemons are alkalizing for the body: Lemons are acidic to begin with but they are alkaline-forming on body fluids helping to restore balance to the body’s pH.

Search & Destroy

Lemons have powerful antibacterial properties; experiments have found the juice of lemons destroy the bacteria of malaria, cholera, diphtheria, typhoid and other deadly diseases.

Your Yellow Chill Pill

Research has shown that lemon balm has a calming effect and therefore may be able to help remove fatigue, exhaustion, dizziness, anxiety, nervousness, and tension. It is also believed that inhaling lemon oil helps in increasing concentration and alertness.

 Enjoy your lemons
