Add Zest And Years To Your Life With Lemon Water!

by Lee Sok Lian|李淑莲

add-zest-and-years-to-your-life-with-lemon-water-1This is a Citrus Zinger, my all-in-one juicer-cum-water-bottle. Before the Citrus Zinger, I had found making a lemon drink too troublesome and so, green tea became my beverage of choice instead. Nowadays lemon juice days alternate with green tea days. Thanks to lemons and green tea – both excellent weight loss remedies --- I have been able to maintain my BMI at 22.1.

This all-in-one juicer-cum-water-bottle extracts lemon juice in three quick twists, infusing the water with instant zesty flavor, vitamin C and flavonoids and perking me up all day.

Elaine who has Type 2 Diabetes told me about websites bearing claims that drinking water in which you soak pieces of cut okra overnight has health benefits for diabetic sufferers!

I checked out the website claims and am delighted to discover this awesome “powerhouse of valuable nutrients” flowering right in our own backyard! I have just walked into Mahota Farm on Sun Island, and saw, growing along the edges of the path leading to the farm, 30 or 40 tall okra plants, looking a little windblown but otherwise very healthy and strong!
