Lemon Health Remedies
Traditionally, lemon is best known as a cough remedy. As most people known, lemon juice has vitamin C, which enhances immune function, and will help the body fight the infection if the cough is caused by a virus or bacteria. The acid also helps to clear phlegm in the throat, an element that more often than not worsens a cough. The juice can be used on its own or in combination with honey. The mixture of honey, lemon and hot water clears mucus from the throat and provides a soothing layer to relieve the irritation associated with coughing.
Many people may not be aware of this, but lemon may also be used in place of a deodorant. Therefore, if you run out of antiperspirant, you can simply slice a lemon open and apply it to your armpit. In fact, you can replace your regular deodorant altogether, seeing as lemons are usually cheaper, not to say more natural.
