Lemons Are Powerful

Updated on April 25, 2013

There Are Enormous Benefits in Lemons


Lemons Are Healthy

When I was pregnant with my first child, I craved lemons by the dozens. I ate so many lemons not knowing that I was supplying my body with lots of vitamins and minerals. Lemons are a rich source of Vitamin C. It also contains other vitamins, like B vitamins, magnesium, riboflavin, calcium, proteins and carbohydrates.

Whenever I get an upset stomach or feel nauseated, the first thing I do is get me a lemon and make me some lemon water. About 5 minutes later my symptoms have subsided. Lemons can help relieve many digestion problems, including heartburn, indigestion, bloating, and constipation and has been known to dissolve gallstones.

Daily consumption of lemon water can make a difference in your appearance. It has a natural antiseptic medicine that can cure problems related to skin. It is the Vitamin C that enhances your beauty.

Whenever you feel like you’re coming down with a sore throat, take a lemon put some honey on it and squeeze out the juices into your mouth. No more that 30 minutes you will feel better. Try gargling with lemon water until your symptoms subside. Lemons have antibacterial properties in it that help fight throat infections.


Nothing Like Drinking Lemon Water

Did you know that drinking lemon water helps you lose weight faster? Believe me its works. I would drink warm lemon water first thing in the morning and then throughout the day I would drink cold lemon water. I notice amazing results in my weight and skin.

Lemons are a very healthy fruit. Especially when drinking with water, it makes a healthy drink.

Different Usage of Lemons

* To relieve asthma, take a tablespoon of lemon juice one hour before each meal.

* A teaspoon of lemon juice in one-half glass of water will relieve heartburn.

* Lemon juice is excellent to use in the place of vinegar. You would use it just as you would use vinegar

* For sore throat, dilute 1/2 lemon juice with have water then gargle frequently. The stronger the juice the better. You will be amazed who your throat begins to heal and get better.

By introducing lemons into your daily diet, you will reap many healthy benefits.

      Lemons are indeed very powerful! They are very cleansing for the liver. I started drinking lemon water a couple months back to help with some breakouts I was having on my skin. It definitely helps a lot!

      It's also a good idea to plant lemon in your yard. This way you don't have to buy it in the market or grocery. Whenever possible, plant the fruits and vegetables in your yard. You can be assured of their quality and safety.
