Some years back back the Lemon Diet was all the rage, with various celebrities and wannabes extolling the benefits of using lemon juice to assist them to lose fat. Now this wasn’t really “news”, bearing in mind that people from the Mediterranean have used lemons as a health tonic for many hundreds of years. However, there have been some recent developments for lemons and weight loss which i think will interest you.
Breaking news… Celebrity stories are true!
The science behind lemons and weight loss has begun to become apparent through modern research. It appears the scientists now agree that each lemon is packed with ingredients that are really GOOD for your digestion and overall health – and the amounts available exceed just about any other fruit or green vegetable. Just think about that for a minute… where we have all been told to get more greenery in our diet they should have been telling us to get to a lot more yellow!
Basically, a lemon is just loaded with Vitamin C – in fact, it is the most potent of all fruits. This means they’re a great way to defend against colds, but more importantly, a survey by Arizona State University has also shown that lemons improve digestive efficiency and as a result, improve weight loss. The survey showed that where high levels of vitamin C were present in blood plasma, waist sizes were smaller. Excess body fat is more easily liberated when the high levels of the vitamin are present. Hence lemon juice earning the reputation of being a ‘Fat Buster’.
The second slice of action in this fruit is actually in the zest, or the skin. It’s called pectin and is a fairly complex protein. However, in the gut it becomes a gel which slows down the pace at which food passes along and keeps us feeling fuller, plus it also slows down the rate of sugar uptake. The result of this is that we consume less food, and are able to get more nutritional benefit from the food we eat.
Despite all the real and proven benefits of lemons and weight loss, there is one major issue for many people. No, there’s nothing dangerous about it. Simply put, a lot of people just don’t like the taste of lemons. Citric acid is the problem. Huge amounts of it. It’s the reason for the sharp/sour taste of the fruit, which can often put folks off. With the highest concentration of all fruits (about 7-8% of each lemon is citric acid) lemons make the perfect source of this essential compound. It works to improve your health through a complex interaction with other acids and enzymes to ensure healthy and problem-free digestion by stimulating stomach juices.
So what if lemons allow you to lose weight, increase your metabolism, slow the uptake of sugars and reduce your appetite if you can’t stomach them?
Now though there is no excuse… Let me explain. If you are one of those who are desperate to benefit from lemons, but can’t face the fizz then I think you’ll find a solution in a relatively new product called LEMON JUICE CAPSULES. It is such a simple solution that I can’t believe no-one thought of it sooner… just put the juice in an easy to take capsule.
We have been doing just that for years with smelly things like garlic and fish oils, so why not lemons?
This is not just a case of putting a drop of lemon juice into a capsule though, as this won’t contain an adequate amount of the ‘good stuff’ to benefit you. No, the ingenious bit is the fact that they have extracted the pectin, citric acid and vitamin C and concentrated it down.
The power of lemons and weight loss is now available in an easy to take capsule.
Get the buzz now, this really is the no fuss, full logic, proven way to shed a few pounds… what more could you want?
