The Healing  Power of Lemons

Lemons are wonderful little fruits that are packed full of nutrients that can help in the healing process. Not only do they heal, they play a role in prevention of disease as well. Lemons contain vitamin C, flavonoids, B-complex vitamins, calcium ,copper, iron, potassium and fiber.

.Lemons have negative ions. Negative ions cause the wonderful feelings we get when we are around waterfalls and on the beach. These ions refresh the stomach and the whole digestive system.They improve the uptake of oxygen and enhance brain function.

Lemon juice helps problems like heartburn, and bloating. It enhances the efficiency of the bowels in eliminating waste. Lemon water can give you an energy boost. I know it certainly boosts my energy when my day begins to lag. I take the juice of one small fresh lemon every day diluted with water. Taking this tonic is a wonderful detox remedy for the liver. Lemon water does wonders for the digestive system

Lemons are inexpensive and available in any supermarket. It is easy to make lemon water every morning. If you are worried about the lemon hurting the enamel on your teeth, drink it through a straw. What is your favorite remedy that uses fresh lemons? Your comments are welcome.
