Lemon detox diet is very popular, especially because it is effective in removing toxins in the body and helps weight loss.
Research conducted over the years clearly identified the main causes of toxins accumulation in the body: improper diet, negative attitude, lack of physical exercise.
Lemon detox diet has been recommended for the first time by Stanley Burroughs, author of “Master cleanse”, created to cure stomach ulcers. With time, it was discovered that this diet is not only beneficial for the stomach, but for many other body functions: better sleep, positive mood, weight loss.
