Looking for a flawless complexion? The honey lemon

Digestive problems like bloating, gas, heartburn and constipation are a chronic problem for many people and can seriously alter your quality of life.

One of the simplest ways to help improve
these digestive complaints is to
simply drink the honey-lemon water every day: the lemons are rich in pectin and act as a sort of scrubber in the intestines, encouraging bowel movements to help rid the body of wastes and making the whole digestion
process more efficient.

inflammation and other form of stress.

The water and the fiber- rich lemons will put a damper on your appetite, making it easier to eat less without feeling hungry. Also, the citric acid in
lemons is an important part of the Krebs cycle, the means by which the body converts food
into energy, and make the process more efficient.

5. IT REDUCES THE RISK OF CHRONIC DISEASE.
A lot of research has been done in recent years on the link
between acidity in the body and the development of chronic diseases, including not only
heart disease but diabetes, joint problems and even some forms of cancer.

Lemons can help to
lower the body’s pH and make it more alkaline: even though they are acidic themselves, their high mineral content helps them to counter-act acidity in the body itself.

6. IT STRENGTHENS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Lack of sleep, stress, and a bad dietary choices can easily wreak havoc on your immune system,
causing you to go from one cold and flu to another. The good

the lemons and the wealth of minerals in the honey can help
to strengthen the immunity and
make it easier for your body to fight off the bacteria, viruses
and other germs that can make you sick.

Honey also has natural antimicrobial properties to keep
you healthy.

7. IT REDUCES THE RISK OF URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS.
Urinary tract infections are painful and can even be very
dangerous if they are severe. For women especially, the problem can become a chronic one and some unlucky gals will have to go through one round
of antibiotics after another just to get the problem cleared up.

Lemon honey water offers a natural solution to this if it is
used regularly: honey has natural antibacterial properties, while the lemon juice can acidify the urine slightly and make it
more difficult for bacteria to grow in the urinary tract.

8. IT DETOXIFIES THE BODY.
In the air we breathe, the beverages we drink and the food we eat, we are exposed to a wide variety of chemicals and toxins. While our body has its own natural defenses against these threats,

detoxify the body and honey again, has natural antimicrobial
and antiseptic properties.
