Don't miss the health benefits of lemons.

Health Benefits Of Lemons

The health benefits of lemons include constipation, sore throat, throat infections, being over weight, high blood pressure, skin care, hair care, cholera, and many other uses. The juice from lemon and the zest from lemons can help to strengthen your immune system. But it also helps to clean your stomach of impurities, and it is a blood purifier.

Lemon Juice has many special health uses. It is used to treat kidney stones, it reduces the bodies temperature and improves the bodies immunity system. Lemon contains flavonoid and it has been proven to have antioxidant and anti cancer properties.

Lemon Juice Can Cure And Prevent Kidney Stones

If you have a problem with kidney stones and you start to take lemon juice on a regular basis your kidney stone problems will go away because lemon juice in the body forms urinary citrate which keeps any more kidney stones from forming.

One of my favorite things to do with lemons is to make Delicious Homemade Lemonade

People who are over weight are losing weight by drinking water with fresh lemon juice added to it. You can even make it into a delicious lemonade with a sugar substitute.

Its As Simple As This. If Your Trying To Lose Weight Drink More Water.

What you will want to do is drink two eight ounce glasses of water before each meal. If you want the added health benefits add fresh squeezed lemon juice to your water. I really do suggest using bottled water as it will contain far fewer impurities than tap water. If you add the lemon juice you will get all the added health benefits of the lemon juice.

Over the years nutritionists and doctors have told you to drink more water. Well now it appears that they were right. Water consumed at the right times of the day can help you to lose weight and if you will make drinking extra water a regular part of your day you will keep the weight off. When you fill hungry between meals drink a big glass of water with some lemon juice added to it. Not only will you lose weight and keep it off but you will also be getting healthier.

Have a glass or a bottle of water for a snack. If you must have something to chew on use carrot and celery sticks. You can place the carrot and celery sticks in a plastic bag in the refrigerator and take some out when you want a snack. Try using a tablespoon of creamy peanut butter as a dip for your carrot and celery sticks.

One thing you have to keep in mind is that you must eat fewer calories on a daily basis in order to lose weight. And water can be a really healthy way to help you lose weight. With the addition of lemon juice it can be a delightful way to lose weight. I hope you will post your thoughts below in the comment section about drinking water to lose weight.

      Lemons are an awseome fruit. All the health spas use lemon in hot water as the first drink of the day. So they obviously know about the health benefits you refer to!
