Why Lemon Juice Is Good For You

Lemons are FANTASTIC for your health. We're not even over dramatic about it. It's THAT amazing.

Here are the reasons you should use lemons starting RIGHT NOW:

1. Aids in digestion: Dr. Oz has suggested drinking a mixture of lemon juice and flaxseed to eliminate the waste from your body more rapidly.

2. Prevent kidney stone: Consuming one half cup of lemon juice daily raises the citrate level in your urine. Studies have shown that this may prevent calcium stones forming in the kidney.

3. Potassium power: Move over bananas! One lemon can contain 80 milligrams of potassium.

4. Soothe a sore throat: A mixture of lemon and honey can do wonders to ease the pain of a scratchy, sore throat.

5. Support weight loss: Lemon juice contains pectin which is a soluble fibre that has been shown to aid in weight loss.
6. Start your day right: Instead of grabbing for the coffee or tea first thing, grab a glass of hot water and lemon juice. It will give you a hit of Vitamin C and help get your metabolism going.

7. Stop an itch: Lemon juice has anti-inflammatory and anesthetic properties. Rubbing lemon juice on poison ivy or insect bites can help soothe the skin.

8. Anticancer properties: Citrus limioids are compounds that help protect your cells from the types of damage that can lead to cancer formation.

EXTRA TIP: In the evening before bed, if you drink a glass of hot lemon water, but just leave the sliced pieces in the hot water and not smash it for the juice, it will help in boosting your metabolism and using the fat that is stored as energy instead so it doesn't turn the food we ate for dinner into fat thus help with staying healthy and lean!
