” Do you have Lemon wedges? I’d like it on my water, please”
My taste fell for lemons back in College – the hotelier in me and the girl who’s always conscious on healthier options has never had a day without her lemons. My friends can attest, each time we eat out(which is our preferred kind of bonding) I’ll always ask for lemon wedges or calamansi if there’s none. I’m even proud knowing they got the habit and would always want one on their water as well.
There are enormous benefits of lemon juice when you add it on your concoction, dishes and water – most especially. For a quick run through: Lemon is a rich source of vitamin C. It also contains vitamins like vitamin B, riboflavin and minerals like calcium, phosphorus, magnesium as well as proteins and carbohydrates.
Aside from the vitamins and minerals, Lemon aids and provides other health benefits such as:
- digestion(bowel,heartburn, bloating and belching)
- cleansing agent (detox, remember the infamous Master cleanse diet?)
- antiseptic medicine (anti-aging remedy, rejuvenate the skin)
- Dental care (get rid of toothache and gum pain)
- Anti-bacterial (sore-throat, tonsillitis)
- Fever (cold and flu) inceasing your perspiration
- blood purifier (cholera and malaria)
- Weight loss.
In order to maximize and boost the benefits to your system, a person must squeeze at least half of the lemon on either cold or warm water, twice daily preferably in the morning or during meals. But, there’s an additional benefit which I learned – Lemons are actually thirst quenchers!
For those who of you who doesn’t fancy the old lemon + water combo SMART C+ , another Oishi product manufactured by Liwayway Marketing Group Corp. came up with a 500 mg LEMON SQEEZE juice drink containing 11 medium-size whole fresh REAL Lemons. No preservatives added, No artificial sweeteners and doesn’t contain High Fructose corn syrup.
It’s friendly to diabetics as they use Cane Sugar and No additional ingredients which we can’t even pronounce, spell nor understand in one look on the nutritional contents.
You all have no idea how delighted I am, I actually sit a bottle for me to gulp on while working.
There’s Pomelo Grapefruit and Orange Crush flavor, too!
Keep up with your Multi-faceted Life!
