Amazing Lemons!

Lemons are ones of the most beneficial fruits on the planet, and due to their countless health benefits and unique flavor and scent, they are added to various recipes.

Lemons are excellent for detoxification of the body, but when juiced, the lemon loses many of its nutrients and a great part of the medicinal potential.

Freezing lemons is a great option. The peel of the lemon strengthens the immune system, and offers numerous health properties, like regulating cholesterol, preventing cancer, treating bacterial infections, and destroying parasites and worms.

These are the health benefits of this miraculous fruit:

  • Prevention of asthma
  • Fighting inflammation
  • Detoxification of the kidneys and the liver
  • Boosting the immune system
  • Regulation of high blood pressure
  • Elimination of harmful bacteria
  • Treating depression and stress
  • Fighting cancer

The lemon juice is extremely high in vitamin C, while its rind is effective in eliminating toxins from the body. Studies have shown that the lemon peel actually contains 5 to 10 times more vitamins.

Benefits of Exercise

People who exercise regularly with the Perfect Little Body Workout video will receive a positive boost in their mood and have lower feelings of depression.

One benefit to regular physical activity is improved self-esteem. When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain that reduce your perception of pain.

Endorphins also trigger a positive feeling in the body. This feeling often follows a workout. A positive and energizing outlook on life can also accompany that feeling.

Wake Up to Water

Everyone should start rehydrating immediately after a full night’s sleep. If possible drink at least 16 ounces of H2O as soon as you wake up in the morning. Doing this boosts metabolism by 24 percent.

A study determined that muscle cells grow faster when they’re well hydrated. A general rule, drink 2 liters or a half gallon of water a day. Drinking more water will increase your fat loss over a period of 6 months.

Also drinking lots of water throughout the day helps your entire body. You will notice your skin will be softer and your eyes will not be as dry.

Listen to your body. Drink how much you feel you need. Everyone has different activies and body sizes. For some very active people,1 gallon is a good target.

The way you know if you are drinking enough water is by your urine. If you are hydrated healthy urine is usually clear. If your urine is yellowish, then you need to increase your water intake.

Note that after taking vitamins or medications your urine will often turn yellow for a couple hours.

Remember:

2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack
