True Beauty Starts Inside

  1. One lemon provides you with 64% of your recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C.
  2. A little lemon juice sprinkled on freshly cut apples, bananas, or avocados will keep them from turning brown.
  3. Lemon juice is so acidic it actually kills germs.
  4. Lemon’s strong aroma is a natural deodorizer, particularly when used as a cleaner. Toss some used lemons in the garbage disposal periodically to freshen it. Gently heat some sliced lemons in a pot on the stove to get rid of cooking odors.
  5. Lemon juice mixed with baking soda can remove stains from plastic food storage containers. Make the pumice and use it as a scrub.
  6. Lemon juice and green tea combine forces to make a strong antioxidant mix, more powerful than if you consumed these two ingredients separately.
  7. Traditional medicines around the world have always recommended lemon juice and hot water as an aid for digestion, heart burn, and a cure for constipation.
  8. Have water with lots of lemon juice during the day to help lose weight and decrease the appetite.
  9. Many traditional sources recommend rinsing the hair with lemon for shine, but a lemon-juice rinse also fights dandruff.
  10. Lemon juice mixed with salt (one part lemon juice to two parts salt) makes a great pumice to remove rust stains.
