Both olive oil and lemon juice play a major role in alternative medicine and are healthy staple foods. Together they provide a powerful combination of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and healthy fats. This may be the reason why this combination is recommended for various illnesses such as constipation and high blood pressure.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is naturally obtained from olive fruits. Unlike vegetable oils, which are obtained by chemical processes that change the properties of the oil, they are minimally handled and processed prior to bottling. Olive oil actually retains the natural vitamins and minerals found in olives.
Lemon, as you may know, is rich in Vitamin C. It also contains B vitamins, potassium, phosphorus and antioxidant flavonoids. Antioxidants are important in reducing the damage caused by free radicals in the body.
Alternative or holistic therapies are not as effective as traditional drugs, but tend to have far fewer side effects. Here are seven major reasons for using lemon juice and olive oil on a regular basis:
Reduces stubborn tummy fat.
The combination of lemon juice and olive oil can help your digestive health and fill your hunger with less food. The ability of this blend to support the liver and gallbladder results in effective fat digestion, faster metabolism, and anti-inflammatory effects.
Lemon juice and olive oil also contain essential fatty acids that actually metabolize the fat stored in the abdomen. This means you'll be slimmer and have a lower risk of heart disease. This combination isn't a diet in itself, but it makes a great addition to your weight loss plan.
Helps prevent premature aging
Antioxidants are important for delaying the effects of aging. We can blame these harmful free radicals for us to feel aging. Free radicals tend to fly around the body, which damages healthy cells, until antioxidants bind to them and stop negative behavior. A spoonful of lemon juice and olive oil a day provides a powerful antioxidant kick.
It also provides you with a sufficient amount of Vitamin E that will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and wrinkles on your skin. But you will not only look young, but you will feel young. This blend contains one unsaturated fat and minerals that help the organs, especially the kidneys, liver and digestive system.
Ideal for hair, skin and nails
Hair and nails are technically non-living tissues and can dry out and become brittle without external hydration. Lemon juice and olive oil do a great job of moisturizing while providing important nutrients. You can use the mixture as a dip several times a week. Place your finger in the mixture for 1530 minutes and then massage your nails to absorb as much as possible.
This magical combination is also antiseptic and astringent, making it a useful toner for the skin. The skin is a naturally living tissue, but it constantly loses its dry outer layer. This mixture is said to combat problems associated with dry flaky skin or dandruff.
Olive Oil, which fights constipation,
is a natural laxative because it smoothes the inside of the intestines, helps the stool retain more water and softens it. Lemon juice has anti-inflammatory properties that can relax the intestines enough to induce healthy bowel movements.
The combination of lemon juice and olive oil is a great first step in relieving painful constipation. Severe chemical laxatives can cause side effects such as gas, gas, and cramps, but lemon juice and olive oil actually alleviate these symptoms.
You can control cholesterol.
The healthy fats in olive oil help regulate lipids in the blood and slow the accumulation of plaque in the arteries. Lemon juice offers similar benefits for vitamin C and flavonoids. Studies show that people with high levels of vitamin C in their blood tend to have lower levels of triglycerides and cholesterol than those who are deficient in vitamin C.
Together, olive oil and lemon juice help maintain good cholesterol levels in healthy people, and also with statins prescribed by doctors of people known to have high cholesterol. May work.
Helps blood circulation and lowers blood pressure
One of the cool properties of olive oil is its anticoagulant properties. This means you can increase blood flow and reduce the chance of developing a dangerous blood clot. Vitamin C in lemon juice, on the other hand, keeps the arteries flexible. Lemon also contains what is called citrate, which naturally improves blood circulation.
As for blood pressure, studies show that daily intake of olive oil is so effective in lowering blood pressure that 35% of participants were able to stop taking the drug. If you have high blood pressure, consult your doctor before taking olive oil and lemon and do not stop taking the drug without permission.
Lemon juice and olive oil, which may improve joint health, are also a great combination for joint care.
The antioxidants in lemon juice fight oxidative stress, which can irritate joints, and the antioxidants in olive oil further soothe swollen areas. Above all, lemon juice and olive oil, when taken orally or topically, are beneficial to both cardiovascular and joint health. If you want to try it locally, rub the mixture on the painful joint. It is also effective for varicose veins.
If you add lemon juice and olive oil to your daily schedule, a reasonable dose is 1/2 tablespoon each. Do not take more than once daily as it may cause side effects such as abdominal pain and softening of tooth enamel. And you really don't need any more.
