Lemon is a little known cure-all that helps fight various illnesses and benefits the whole body and its various systems. In modern jargon it is classified as a “superfood” thanks to its levels of vitamin C, A, B1, B6, magnesium, bioflavonoid, pectin, folic acid, phosphorus, calcium and potassium. Eat some lemon every day and you will be on the right path to preventing incidents of flu, laryngitis, bacterial diseases and more.
Lemon is also particularly good at battling stiff and painful joints. Anyone with arthritic pain should follow the recipe below:
1. Place the rind of two lemons in a jar and fill with olive oil.
2. Tightly close the jar and let the lemon infuse the oil for two weeks.
3. To use, place a small amount of infused olive oil onto a clean bandage and cover the afflicted spot. Cover the bandage with plastic wrap and let sit overnight.
You should wake up with little to no joint pain!
