The human body is a smart machine. He can warn his owner in advance about many failures, if, of course, he listens carefully to him. Do not, for example, ignore the sudden craving for some products. If you can’t walk quietly past the lemon counter, you may be sick. This was warned by a therapist, nutritionist, doctor of medical sciences Margarita Koroleva.
You can pull on sour during a cold or other viral disease with a fever. The thing is that at this time a person’s need for vitamin C increases sharply.
This vitamin is difficult not to get, especially if a person has vegetables and fruits in the diet. However, the body consumes it very quickly on normal days, and even more so with colds.
Sudden love for sour can wake up those who suffer from atrophic gastritis. The body needs hydrochloric acid to process protein, and in this disease it is secreted in insufficient quantities. And then sour food will improve the digestion process, the doctor explained.
By the way, vitamin C is far from the only thing that lemons are rich in. They have many other health benefits, including stimulating the neurotransmitters responsible for alertness. However, these citrus fruits also have disadvantages.
