Hola, folks. miss me? 😀
(Okay, I know that there weren’t much people reading my blog. hahaha)
Actually, I don’t know what to share today but I haven’t write in this blog for quite long. After some time thinking, I decided to create something. A fact card. I know that’s not much to share, but I hope that it will have some use for you (I really hope that 😀 )
This is a fact card about lemon. Why Lemon? I don’t know. I just want to do it (ha-ha). I decided to write 5 facts – trivia, maybe – about lemon. Why 5? Same answer, I just want to give (only) 5 informations about this fruit.
So, here we go :
1. One fruit of lemon contains a full day’s supply of vitamin C
One lemon contains a full day’s supply of ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, but that’s thewhole fruit; the juice holds about a third. Lemon juice is also about 5 percent citric acid, making it a natural for slowing the browning or oxidation of fresh, raw foods: apples, avocados, bananas, and other fruits. That power, and the C, makes the lemon a real health fruit. ( from http://pendek.in/iy1)
2. Use pure lemon juice on wasp and bee stings to relieve pain
Some people love antiseptics and would apply it to their skin whenever they have the smallest cut. The good news is you can use lemon on cuts too since it’s nature’s antiseptics. Not only that, because of its styptics property, it is said that lemon could be applied on cuts to stop bleeding. ( from http://pendek.in/iy2 )
3. Drinking lemon juice is useful for people with heart problem – because of its high potassium content.
If you have high blood pressure, heart failure, or heart rhythm problems, getting enough potassium is especially important. And although potassium and cholesterol aren’t directly related, eating a potassium-rich diet just might lower your cholesterol, too. (from http://pendek.in/iy4 )
4. Lemon act as blood purifier and improves the body’s ability to get rid of toxins.
It is an antiseptic, or is an agent that prevents sepsis [the presence of pathogenic bacteria] or putrefaction [decomposition of tissue]. It is also anti-scorbutic, a term meaning a remedy which will prevent disease and assist in cleansing the system of impurities. (from http://pendek.in/iy5 )
5. Use the peels to clean household utensils from rust and mineral stains
Lemon juice is about 5 to 6 percent citric acid and has a pH level of between 2 and 3. This low pH acidity makes lemon juice a great ally in breaking down rust and mineral stains, but gentle enough to not dull finishes. There is generally sufficient juice left in used lemon halves to tackle small tasks, and it all comes with its own applicator (the rind itself). ( from http://pendek.in/iy6 )
