Apparently in chinese medicine, it's advised to begin the day with lemon/lime water/juice. I spoke to a chinese medicine doctor, and she said it would energize my system.
Well, just hearing about it got me all inspired and excited, and I was compelled to write another post about its benefits. (after buying a bunch at the market)
Ok, it's anti-bacterial, anti-fatigue, anti-septic, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer.
Hmm, you're likin' these lemons already, ain'tcha?
Fortified with vitaminc C and anti-oxidants, it boosts the immune system and gets rid of free radicals.
Digestion is improved, as it boosts metabolism.
It purifies the blood.
It detoxifies the body.
It stregthens liver functioning,
and helps with urinary tract infections.
There are various other benefits as well. for example:
"Daily consumption of lemon water can make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin. It rejuvenates the skin and gives a clear, radiant and glowing complexion. "
go forth and drink thy lemon water/juice!
(and try not to add sugar)
