10 Amazing Benefits of Adding Lemon In Your Green Juices !

Well, let me confess that I am absolutely crazy about lemon and ginger juices.

I absolutely love to start my day with a glass of lukewarm water with freshly squeezed lemon juice in it.

Not only I find it extremely refreshing and tasty but these tangy juices are loaded with antioxidants containing flavonoids that are very useful for tonnes of other diseases and ailments.

 

Here are few points that you may find really interesting and helpful about lemon juices:

1. Antibacterial

When you ingest lemon juice the acid from the lemon juice acts as a antibacterial force inside your stomach.

You can also use lemons to clean your cutting boards and counters.

2. Vitamin C

Besides boosting your immune system, vitamin C helps destroy H. pylori, which is a type of bacteria in your stomach. H. pylori is being research for it’s ability to cause stomach ulcers.

Here is a great stomach and gut tonic. This will help you go to the restroom and it will help your stomach fight off any unwanted bacteria like H. pylori. The tonic includes: 1 cup of warm water, 1/2 lemon (juiced), 1 teaspoon of ground flaxseed.

3. Alkalize the Body

Believe it or not but lemon are alkalizing for the body. Many people think since lemons are sour they are actually acidic inside your body. Inside your body lemons don’t act acidic, instead they have alkalizing properties that keep your pH balance.

It’s best to start your day with warm water and lemon juice.

4. Liver Cleanser

8. Cleans You Out and Aids in Digestion

Lemon juice like most fresh vegetable juices contain pectin fiber. Pectin fiber is a type of water soluble fiber that helps reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. Another great thing about pectin is that it keeps you feeling full and reduces cravings.

9. Natural Diuretic

Lemon juice and warm water also help increase the rate of urination. This is great because toxins and other harmful substances are pushed out of your body, leaving your body in a alkaline state.

10. Hydration of Lymph System

Warm water and lemon juice supports the immune system by hydrating and replacing fluids lost by your body. When your body is deprived of water, you can definitely feel the side effects, which include: feeling tired, sluggish, decreased immune function, constipation, lack of energy, low/high blood pressure, lack of sleep, lack of mental clarity and feeling stressed just to name a few.

When you have these symptoms it might mean that your adrenals are “fatigued.” Your adrenals function in secreting necessary hormones, regulating stress response, regulating blood pressure and much more. So keep your adrenals happy by staying hydrated.

***Remember lemons and lemon juice can strip off the enamel from your teeth.

Add lemon juices to your favorite green juices and stay healthy!
