Here’s a great tip.Â And it’s inexpensive too.Â Drink lemon waterÂ to rejuvenateÂ from inside out, giving youÂ a healthy system, a glowing complexion and a slimmerÂ body!Â
If you do not already know, lemon contains high levels of vitamin C andÂ can help to flush out toxins from the body and hence, works as a great skin cleanser.Â Â According to Energiseforlife.com, the citrus fruit contains essential minerals including calcium, potassium and magnesium which the body needs; cleanses and stimulates the liver and kidneys; even works as an antiseptic and helps ease heartburn, bloating and other digestive problems.Â Regular intake of the citrus drink can alsoÂ improveÂ digestion and elimination systems.
My yoga instructress used to tell us to soak half a lemon (organic if possible)Â in aÂ jar ofÂ lukewarm waterÂ and drink it in the morning so as to retain the health benefits throughout the day.Â According to her, lukewarm water makes it easier for theÂ bodyÂ to absorb the nutrients.Â
Now I also remember one of my nephews who actually drank lemon water to lose some weight years ago.Â And my MILÂ who claimed that theÂ citrus fruit helps to whitenÂ her skin.Â
So ciao.Â I’m heading to the supermarket toÂ load up onÂ myÂ lemons!
