Why You Need to Eat More Lemons

Why You Need to Eat More Lemons

 

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.

Β Enjoy your lemons

xoxo,

Chelf

    This is so interesting. I’ve heard that lemons can do some amazing things for your body, but I never really looked too much in to it. I really need to incorporate them in to my diet more!

    I know lemon is used along with honey for cough and cold. The best part is it’s easily available and with so many benefits. Lemon drinks are so very common..

    Daily a Leamon in the morning is good for health?

      yes it is, not necessarily in the morning because they are acidic and you run a risk of discomfort but if you try it out and feel good about it yes, they are indeed a great boost!
