Drink Lemon/Lime Water!
Most of the foods we ate are very acidic – this which will bring health problems!
Because our body prefers to be alkaline. (Our blood pH is alkaline, NOT neutral.)
Though lemon/lime might seems like an “acid” because of its sour taste, it actually alkalize your body and blood!
If you want to lose weight…
Take lemon/lime first thing in the morning with lukewarm water.
It has a NATURAL mild laxative effects which will aids your digestion.
If you want a clearer skin complexion, brighter eyes…then you should eat more healthily!
You cannot get those with too much toxins and acidity in your body when your body prefers to be alkaline!
For those sweet-tooth and coffee/tea lover out there (including myself :() SUGAR and CAFFEINE is in the ACIDIC food category. That’s the fact. (High acidic foods cause dry skin, acne, etc). I didn’t say to give up on sweet treats/coffee-tea completely – I wouldn’t want that :-P – if you can, go ahead :), but lowering your intake is good enough for a noticeable change if you used to eat a lot of those sugary and caffeinated foods/beverages.
In addition, lemon/lime contain unique flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties.
They are also an excellent source of Vitamin C, one of the most important antioxidants in nature. Vitamin C travels through the body neutralizing any free radicals with which it comes into contact in the aqueous environments in the body both inside and outside cells. (Free radicals can interact with the healthy cells of the body, damaging them and their membranes, and also cause a lot of inflammation, or painful swelling, in the body.)
Vitamin C is also vital to the function of a strong immune system. Especially in this flu season, it is important to have a sufficient intake of Vitamin C.
So, START drinking it!
it’s also a good choice if you are planning a detox diet ;)
