As we all know that lemon is a rich source of Vitamin C and helps us keep away Scurvy from affecting us. Scurvy is a hazardous condition which affects our oral health and results in swollen gums which time to time bleeding as well. But lemon is also very effective in lowering our blood cholesterol level by a significant amount and also it helps us shedding those extra pounds as well.
A glassful of slightly warmed lemon juice with a pinch of salt in it can work wonders if taken every morning once we wake up from sleep. This method has found to be extremely useful in lowering the cholesterol level in the blood thereby reducing the risk of heart attacks. Also there has been noticed a marked reduction in the body weight of people who are clinically obese. I haven't tried it personally yet but it certainly seems to be worth a try.
