Lemons are considered as an all-inclusive healing fruit, due to their multiple proven health benefits like – healthy heart, positive impact on weight loss and weight management, and potential to heal gastrointestinal distress and digestive issues.
We have good news for those of you who are not so crazy about ingesting lemon as a way to improve health; did you know that simply placing them on your bedside table at night has a positive impact on you and your health? Read on to discover what happens to your body after just one night of putting lemons in your bedroom:
1. Lemons keep away mosquitoes
Lemons contain a natural volatile oil called citronella, which is a naturally effective bug repellant. Placing a few cut lemon wedges on your bedside table will be enough to keep annoying flies and mosquitoes at bay, giving you the peaceful night’s sleep that you long for.
2. Forget that Energy drink, Lemon is a natural energy booster.
Getting up early is a challenge for almost everyone. If you want to wake up raring to go, consider placing some sunny slices by your bedside. The aroma of lemon triggers the release of serotonin in the brain, a feel-good chemical that allows you to meet your day head-on.
3. Need to cram some notes? Have a lemon!
While some may not think that concentration is key to a good night’s sleep, according to National Insitute on aging, clear and relaxed heads at night promote restful sleep. Breathing in the aroma of lemon allows you to clear away the day’s events, allowing you to focus on the great night of sleep that lies ahead. After a good night’s sleep, you’ll be better able to concentrate on the day ahead with its flurry of activity.
4. Lemon is good for the heart.
Lemons have powerful antidepressant properties; they are useful in creating a positive mood and balancing the emotions. The active mind/body connection that ties into the heart allows lemon to work to lower blood pressure, the risk of stroke and heart attack.
So next time you see lemons at the kiosk, buy them!
