Why Honey and Lemon can be a miracle potion!
Honey and lemon provide a plethora of health benefits in their own individual goodness and medicinal values. There are plenty of people, including those of us here at Tipson, who swear by this magical mix dose because this miracle drink does a lot more than melt your fat and speed up the fat loss process. So, here are 5 reasons why we believe that honey and lemon can truly be a miracle potion!
Helps you shed those pounds!
Going on a honey and lemon diet can help relieve you of your weight problem. Obesity is the physical condition of the body when excessive deposition of fat takes place in the tissues, putting a strain on the heart, kidneys, liver and the joints such as the hips, knees and ankles and thus, overweight people are susceptible to several diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure,arthritis, liver and gallbladder disorders. The metabolism boost that comes from the mixture of lemon and honey is the perfect weight-loss aid. The citrates found in lemons are an important part of the metabolic process in the body.
Did you know that in folk medicine, honey lemon water has been thought to increase the peristaltic motion of the bowels, helping to cleanse the gut and prevent the build-up of dangerous bacteria? Furthermore, honey lemon water is able to promote urination, and as a diuretic, this concoction can speed up the elimination of toxins from the body. Urination releases unwanted salts, fats, toxins, and water from the body, and this healthy concoction puts that process into overdrive.
Look better with clearer skin
As mentioned earlier, since honey and lemon eliminates toxins and other wastes from the body, it can give you a clear and a natural glow to your skin while preventing acne and other skin problems. The detoxification properties present in honey and lemon ensure that your skin is kept in prime condition, while also providing protection against pollutants and UV rays.
Cure that cough
One of the best ways to use honey and lemon is when you are suffering from a sore throat, cough or other respiratory condition. This combination can soothe the respiratory tracts and prevent irritation, which can reduce the urge to cough, while also promoting the immune system and diminishing bacterial and viral infections in the respiratory system.
Prevents you from getting a cough in the first place, by boosting your immunity!
The body’s immune system gets a major boost when you combine lemon and honey. Lemons have high vitamin C content, as well as other volatile components and antioxidants, as well as antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Honey, on the other hand, is one of the most powerful antibacterial substances that we know of! Putting the two together, whether for consumption or a topical application, means that your immune system is getting a major boost!
As you can see, honey and lemon together truly can be a powerful combo that can bring about positive health benefits. However, you should always be careful to use fresh ingredients that are not full of harmful chemicals. This is why at Tipson we only source organic ingredients and natural lemon and honey for our Tipson Matcha range with Honey and Lemon!
