07.03.2013 | 有益檸水

[Volume 8 Issue 3, #1682]
周不時都聽到關於檸檬嘅益處, 噚日喺超市見到靚檸檬, 所以心血來潮買咗兩個返去.. 我呢個十年不入廚房嘅人, 當然唔會拎兩個檸檬大搞啦.. 其實只不過係每日切兩片放入杯中, 朝早以暖水空肚服用, 然後先食早餐.. 飲玩杯暖檸水, 兩片檸檬當然唔好抌咗咁嘥啦, 留返喺個杯中好似平時咁斟水飲.. 其實都唔知咁樣算唔算好呢?? 檸檬含豐富維他命C, 又可以幫助消脂, 不過飲太多會唔會酸性過多呢?? 讀者們, 邊位有專業意見咁呢?? 嚟分享下吖~~ :)
i've heard a lot about the goodness of lemon, saw them in supermarket yesterday and so bought two small ones back.. for someone who doesn't go into the kitchen even once in ten years, of course i wasn't cooking anything from the two lemons.. i just cut and put two slices into my mug, pour in warm water and drink it empty-stomach in the morning before breakfast.. after drinking the warm lemon water, of course keep the lemon slices in the mug and then use it to drink water as usual.. i don't know if this is really good?? lemons are full of vitamin C and can also wash-off fats, but would it be too acidic if i drink too much?? any readers with professional thoughts?? just share it here~~ :)

    1. Yeah! I wanted to praise SK for such a healthy post. This is the first time SK posting something so healthy and beneficial for his readers.

      Lemon is indeed a good sauce of vitamins C and it cures many deceases too.

      I saw many of my colleagues doing the same thing like SK. Putting one slice of lemon in the cup.

      Even my boss does so now.

      Delete
    7. Meow, lemon juice can help to lighten the pigmentation ka? I thought our skin is too delicate to handle lemon juice?

      I need something to help with pigmentation too :p

  4. Why do one gets cancer??? Simple, too much acid inside our body after consuming too much red meats like Beef, Mutton, Pork and others. The acid will slowly trigger all the cancer cells all over and it would be tough battles later to repair all our damaged organs. So the alkaline should be consumed daily to help neutralize the acid out. Lemon is miracle!

  5. Many friends asked me whether limau kasturi or small green lemons are also lemons but I told them to drink big yellow lemons that has been proven to contain alkaline. Unless someone could tell me that those limaus have been tested positive.

  6. Here is a true story which happened many years ago in Singapore. A famous & popular DJ was diagnosed with last stage of cancer and he quit his job from the broadcasting station to battle his cancer with lots of chemo treatments. He had no more hope until someone taught him a miracle.

    Years later, he reappeared on the radio and told all his listeners that he drank gallons of lemon juice everyday until his cancer cells disappeared!

  15. Really a good habit! I do this daily too. Actually its half a lemon for the hubster and another half for me daily.

    Contrary t what people think, lemons are actually alkaline. Do check out the following site on a list of alkaline food. http://www.energiseforlife.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/acid-alkaline-food-chart-2.0.pdf

  16. Ph I've been drinking the juice of 1/2 lemon + 8ozs of warm water ever since i read a medical journal that it has many good properties, in particular it balances the PH level in our body. Contrary to popular understanding, lemon juice is actually alkali whilst lime is acidic. It is said that an acidic body is more susceptible to sickness esp cancer. For those who wanna get additional aid in losing weight, drinking lemon with warm water daily helps ;)
