In this article, we will look into some of the unknown benefits and remedies for which lemon is most commonly used.

Helps sets your gut up for the day. Your skin will thank you and your eyes will be clear. If you have sensitive teeth and are concerned about the enamel of your teeth, use a straw to drink. This practice will help to alkalize your body.
