Did you know that mixing 2 simple ingredients like olive oil and lemon can do wonders for your health?
It’s been used for centuries, and it’s one that can definitely benefit everyone who tries it.
1. Combats constipation
This simple mixture helps rid our body of toxins, purifying it in the process. It jump starts the liver and gallbladder, while getting the wheels of our digestive system properly lubricated. So, it effectively helps us get rid of those things that our body naturally wants to get rid of.
2. Protects the heart
Olive oil contains fatty acids that flush the body of surplus cholesterol. That allows our blood to flow more freely. If you add vitamin C, in form of lemon to olive oil, you’ve got 2 powerful agents with anti-inflammatory properties. It’s not only good for adults but kids too!
3. Fights joint pain
Fighting joint pain means fighting inflammation. Using olive oil and lemon together every morning, before breakfast, will allow you to reduce swelling in your joints and help relieve the pain of rheumatism and arthritis.
4. Improves digestive health
If you feel sluggish, swollen, and bloated, your body may be trying to tell you something. You could be toxic from a poor diet and lack of exercise. Your body’s digestive and elimination systems probably aren’t working as well as they should, and you might be suffering from problems with the liver and gallbladder.
Try a tablespoon of olive oil and lemon, first thing in the morning to combat these symptoms. You may or may not tolerate it well, so start slow and see how you feel.
It’s time to detoxify!!!
3 drops of lemon juice with a teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil, 30 minutes before breakfast may be exactly what you need to feel better. Use room temperature ingredients and mix them well.
