It’s amazing how a simple fruit like #lemon can be so effective in helping boost metabolism and #weight loss and aid on sugar absorption, while alkalizing the body. Though lemons are acidic, their effects are alkalizing. (I'm allergic to lemons, so I substitute limes. I add lime to my drinking water for a health boost, and as an added bonus, I tend to drink more water if it's flavored. You'll probably get the benefits of better hydration as well. All citrus fruits have this beneficial acidity.
