4. Weight loss/Appetite Suppressant We're approaching this claim with caution since any new health fad that becomes popular can get turned into a "fat burning miracle". There is a lack of scientific research that supports the claim of weight loss fully, however this doesn't mean the claims are false, simply that additional research is needed.

One of the studies that does exist was

not a human trial but did show signifi- cantly reduced weight gain when a diet high in fat was being consumed. Most people whether they want to admit it or not fall in the high fat diet category. Pectin and polyphenols are the main substances found in lemons that have more

research available showing weight loss and appetite suppressing qualities. Pectin gives a feeling a fullness much

like other soluble dietary fibers, that may help reduced caloric intake. In one study these two substance in- creased fat metabolism, increased HDL (good) cholesterol & lowered LDL (bad) cholesterol and decreased the production of inflammation. The main study was carried out by Drs. Sheau C. Chai, Shirin Hooshmand, Raz L. Saadat, and Bahram Arjmandi, of Florida State University. Every "body" will respond differently

to lemon water, which is why we recom- mend adding this to your diet without any other major changes to isolate the effects. This will allow you to better attribute

any changes you experience and not be confused if it was the new multivitamin you started taking.

While additional research is needed

regarding the weight loss benefits of lemon water, positive benefits are achieved by replacing sugary drinks for lemon water. We recommend replacing your morn- ing coffee with lemon water for at least 2 weeks. Keep a journal of your mood, en- ergy, and cravings for the 2 weeks to see

what positive benefits you experience.

5. Reduced Wrinkles and Improved Skin This claim states benefits from both drinking lemon water and applying topi- cally. Lemons have been found to be high in antioxidants which are linked to anti- aging properties. The primary cause of aging comes

from free radicals that cause the break- down of various tissues in the body, namely skin.Research showed that plant derived antioxidants were able to reverse the breakdown of collagen fibers in the skin. Collagen gives skin it's strength, structure, and plumpness while protecting the skin from absorbing toxins. Now the next time you see your friend with great skin you can tell her you're jealous of her collagen. Free radicals in small amounts are not damaging to the body, but you should be aware of practices that increase your ex- posure to free radicals. The most common and most dangerous forms of exposure can come from drugs, radiation, pesticides, air pollutants, solvents, alcohol, tobacco smoke, pollution, and even foods we eat. Most healthy people who do not smoke should not be overly concerned with too
