I went to my grandparents hometown last night and they were really shocked of the weight i gained since the last time they saw me. They also learned of the health problems I'm into lately like hypertension associated with high level of sugar, and etc. I received a sackful of advice from them and got my interest was this:"If you want to stay healthy , and get rid of those diseases, all you have to do is to drink a glass of Calamansi juice everyday." They mentioned names in our place who managed to gain back good health by just taking the Calamansi juice. I am a bit apprehensive, though I know its a good source of viamins C, but getting rid of all those major health problems, that I am not sure of. Any body who would like enlighten me about this? I would really appreciate it. Is it a fact or fallacy?

Hmm, I'm not sure about Calamansi juice, but I for sure know that drinking half a lemon squeeze with a cup of warm water every morning helps not only your skin, loosing weight, but it also helps constipation and clear anything that is clog in your system. I do that every morning. Besides, taking oats every day could help you too. It will reduce cholesterol and lowers high sugar level. I know oats can be disgusting especially after getting them boil and all starchy, but for me, I do it in a more eatable way. Haha. I pour my raw oats in a blender, pour in approximately 2 cups of COLD water, and some meal replacement powder form drink which comes in vanilla or dutch chocolate flavour. Then blend. It taste like milkshake and its really nice. You can get those meal replacement drink from any health store. I get mine from GNC. lol. It replaces your meal so you don't have to eat. I do that for breakfast or either dinner. Once or twice a day. But remember, if you drink that meal replacement drink, don't eat. Otherwise you'll double the size. And exercise regularly. Its hard to start, but once you start, you'll find it weird when you stop. Jog at least 3 times a week. 30mins each time. Good luck. =)

i already have tried eating oatmeal and its really disgusting! I'll your ways of taking it, I might like it. As for the Calamansi Juice, i guess it has same benefits with your lemon juice because both are citrus fruits with lots of vitamin C. In that case, it makes the statements of my grandparents true, isn't it? Thanks so much....

Oh yes it's true!!! I may not be a doctor but just based on my own experience, including that of my husband's and a few of my relative's, Calamansi juice (or lemon juice) does help in curing different illnesses and also help in reducing weight. And it doesn't necessarily have to be a full glass or in juice form (mixed with water), but a tablespoon or two first thing in the morning will do. I've learned this from a vegetarian book. It said there that if we take a tablespoon or two of freshly squeezed pure Calamansi juice in the morning, it would act like an internal cleanser to our body and detoxifies our blood. It also helps in curing fatty liver. My aunt for one had a fatty liver, ever since her gall bladder got removed due to gall stones. The week after she was diagnosed with a fatty liver, she began drinking Calamansi juice every morning and night (with no added sweeteners whatsoever). Then when she came back to the doctor after a week, the fats in her liver has significantly dropped. It can actually also help with gall stones. I've read in the internet about flushing out gall stones by taking lemon, apple juice, etc. I haven't tried this one though but there have been a lot of testimonials in the internet. Anyway, I strongly recommend this to you. After all, you got nothing to loose right? But of course you have to couple it with wholesome diet and physical activities, and not just depend on the Calamansi alone. By the way, your post kinda reminded me to go back to taking Calamansi juice in the morning again. I used to do this before but not anymore since I gave birth to my baby, mainly because I barely have time to even think about it. But I should really do this again especially that I've also gained so much weight!

helpmeout Calamansi is a small green rounded citrus fruit. It has a sour taste but the appearance of the inside is just like with the lemon except for the size and color.

I don't know about calamansi, but I am very sure lemon helps.. since both the fruits come from the same family, I assume it works the same depends on the availability of the fruits in the country. For me, I drink lemon water in the morning, and lemon tea (no sugar) in the afternoon after lunch. I am in the return of hoping that with the lemon drink I can be at least better in terms of shapes and health. Who knows, you may try too..

Calamansi juice been noted to contain vitamin C. It is responsible for providing the body immunity against viruses and naturally taking calamansi will boost your immune system which eventually makes you healthy and well. But it is just aspect to obtaining a great health considering that proper nutrition is essential as well as exercise. I think now you certainly taking the right kind of food as well watching your health closely after discovering that you have health problems. Along with the calamansi juice, you have surely made yourself healthy. So the best thing to do is continue what you have started. I am sure that you will surel reap the benefits which is good health.

Yes, lime or lemon juice is very helpful due to it's ascorbic acid contain and fiber as well. But, the best thing to maintain good health is proper and balance diet associated with daily exercise. Sweating is the best way to get rid of all the toxins from our body.
