I love adding lemon to my water and green tea!! Lemon is a natural diuretic =)
“There are many health benefits of lemons that have been known for centuries. The two biggest are lemons’ strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers and their use as a weight loss aid because lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. Lemons contain many substances—notably citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene—that promote immunity and fight infection.
In addition, lemons can help rid you of acne, eczema, hypertension, and insomnia,
Research has shown that lemon balm has a calming effect and therefore may be able to help remove fatigue, exhaustion, dizziness, anxiety, nervousness, and tension. It is also believed that inhaling lemon oil helps in increasing concentration and alertness. It can therefore be used as a room freshener in offices to increase the efficiency of the employees.”
