BENEFITS OF: LEMON
I'm a BIG fan of lemon, so much in fact that if you pass a empty glass with just a lemon peel... "Hugo was there".
I use it in drinks (hot and cold), salads, stir fries, big omelettes, and probably a load of other things I've forgotten!
6 benefits of... e.g. lemon with warm water in the morning:
- AID DIGESTION (Prone's your bile and stomach acids for food)
- COMBATS JOINT PAIN & INFLAMMATION
- LITTLE VIT C BOOST
- IMPROVES LIVER FUNCTION (Clearing toxins)
- COLON HEALTH (From the pectin)
- IMPROVE SKIN QUALITY
Another benefit actually comes from the rind of the fruit used to make lemon oil...! Which is suggested to boost your mood, wake you up and get your brain moving.
If you're not keen on lemons don't worry, some of the benefits listed as well as many more including INCREASE IN METABOLIC FUNCTIONING can be achieved from having a large glass or two of filtered / mineral water first thing in the morning after waking up - also shown to aid energy levels.
Stay Healthy & Happy!
