A Good Source Of
- Vitamin C
A lemon that has some green on it means it is not fully fresh and has a higher acidity content. Look for lemons with smooth skins as they generally have more juice.
Citrus fruits, when taken in excess, are known to leech calcium from the body. All citrus fruits add citric acid to the body and so it's a good idea to get some exercise after having a citrus fruit drink.
Some people peel the skin and some don't. If you peel the skin, make sure you leave some of the white membrane on the fruit. The white membrane contains the bioflavonoids. The bioflavonoids help the body absorb and use Vitamin C.
I personally don't peel the skin and I like to combine ¼ to ½ lemon, depending on the size, with a few apples.
Drink immediately after juicing to ensure you get all of the Vitamin C.

Nothing to report.
Cautions & Suggestions:
Chinese herbalists suggest that lemons should be avoided by those that suffer from gastric or duodenal ulcers along with excessive gastric acid.
The lemon seeds are said to help stimulate energy and relieve pain.
Chinese herbalists have long known that lemon juice (lemonade) is beneficial in helping cool the body on hot days. Thus lemonade, as a traditional summer drink, is in fact quite beneficial. Unfortunately, most people buy commercially prepared lemonade rather than making it themselves.

Have you been wanting to do hatha yoga (stretching) but have found it either too difficult or you are not that flexible? If yes, and even if no, watch Jesse do some pure hatha yoga routines.
flow yoga, each pose in pure or traditional hatha yoga is held for a few minutes. While holding the pose, you focus the mind on the stretch. When you focus the mind, that's when you find silence.
Jesse is not flexible — never has been and probably never will be flexible like others. But it doesn't matter. In pure hatha yoga, how flexible you are makes no difference. It's all about loving the pose and focussing the mind on the stretch.
If you want to learn pure hatha yoga, now you can by following Jesse on a series of hatha yoga routines.
