Benefits of Orange and Lemons

I have decided to go down the infused water road. Every day, I try to come up with simple recipes with the fruits I have handy inside the fridge. Especially since my mom bought me a dozen mason jars to make my infused water experience a little more attractive. 

Before I share some of the recipes on my blog, I want to enumerate the benefits of the fruits that I'm going to use so that others will be enticed to go down this road with me too. Today's featured fruits: ORANGE and LEMONS. Instead of using them on your vodkas and margaritas, try it with the best drink ever created on earth: water. But then again, that's a different story. So here it goes:

Oranges:
Contains flavonoids that are in the peel and orange juice
It stimulates the immune system providing protection against fungi and other pests
Helps reduce cholesterol levels
It prevents pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma and kidney stones

Lemon:
Keeps kidney healthy
High in Vitamin C
Slows weight gain
It has citric acid that maintains proper body pH. Keeping your body pH within the ideal range helps prevent cancer, heart disease, fatigue and a variety of other health issues. 

I'd like to call them "fruit of life". With all these benefits, I can consider them a natural way to prolong life. Forget about the expensive fad diets, most of these are available right under our fingertips, inside our homes, inside the fridge! 

On my next blog, I will be sharing some of the best infused water recipes that will help you accelerate weigh loss and gain more healthy benefits. Please feel free to share yours too!

By some surprising twist of fate, I am now a mom...a single one at that! I'd like to think that God has granted my most fervent wish - to become a superhero! At least in the eyes of my one year old boy - Alejandro. I'm a public servant experiencing fulfillment from doing the best I can to change the world in my own little way. A newbie blogger mom/digital mom and so far, I'm having difficulty switching from being the single, career woman I'm used to in the past and the new role I'm dealt with today. I'm an online entrepreneur too - I don't know where I'm going but then again, I already know where I'm from. And I don't ever wanna go back, Join me, in my missteps and misadventures and tell me what you think about my take on LIFE, LOVE and EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN. Welcome to Mama Whale's world!
