Weight Loss

It has been long thought of that lemons aid with weight loss. Now research has found evidence for this.

Just as lemons help the body in weight loss, as part of the whole process, they also aid the digestion process. Lemon has natural acid and helps to break down food and control the bugs and bacteria that resides in the gut.

Lemons, therefore, help relieve bloating, nausea, heart burn, belching, parasites and constipation. Next time you want relief from these symptoms, don't go to the drug store - go to the green grocers. Hurray for lemons!
