Ingredient Spotlight: Lemons

This commonly overlooked fruit shines in the summertime when temperatures are sweltering and cold beverages are flowing. The only thing as abundant as a 100 degree day during a Texas summer is a lemonade stand on the corner. And while you may love the taste of lemonade and lemons, your body (especially your skin and hair) loves its health benefits even more. Here are some great uses of this bright and tasty fruit:

 

  • Drinking a glass of lemon water in the morning can aid in weight loss, reduce inflammation, improve digestion, and boost the immune system.
  • Lemons alkalize the body by helping to restore the body’s pH.
  • The juice of lemons have been found to destroy the bacteria found in many diseases and helps flush out unwanted toxins in the body.
  • Lemons can be used to moisturize, cleanse, exfoliate and brighten the skin.
  • A few drops of lemon juice can condition dry hair leaving it silky and smooth.
