Get More Juice from Your Lemon
Tip: A colder lemon is harder to squeeze. To get the most from your lemon pop it in the microwave or 30 seconds prior to cutting. You will get a lot more juice that way.
Here are some things you may not have known about the lemon:
• known for its antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers
• the citric acid found in lemon can help treat acne
• Vitamin C is used for glowing skin (I mix lemon juice with sugar for a quick scrub)
• weight loss (digestive aid and liver cleanser
• offers a relief for eczema
• fights fatigue
• helps freshen breath
• reduces anxiety
• helps fight varicose and spider veins
Remember to contact your personal healthcare provider prior to staring a new diet or healthcare routine. Stay tuned for my lemonade recipe!
