Sweeten the deal with lemons this holiday

1 min read

The American diet and sedentary lifestyle often leave bodies acidic which is fertile ground for sicknesses and disease.

A simple tea made from lemons stimulates your digestive system and helps alkaline the body.

According to a Real Simple article, Americans gain an average 13 pounds between the end of October and the New Year. Additionally, celebrants consume more than usual, rich, high acidic foods and drinks.

Drinking lemon water and lemon tea throughout the holidays can balance food and beverage indulgences occurring during this season. With a glass or two of the low-calorie drink, more water speeds up the metabolism while a lot of lemon water boosts vitamin C and lowers your blood pressure.

Benefits of Lemons

Often, lemons are used as a simple daily and seasonal detox. Get started now rather than waiting for January 1. Your body deserves it. Here are some of the benefits of lemons as medicine:

  1. Cancer-fighting properties
