If you are always tired, struggling with constipation or simply want to improve your health, you NEED to try this super easy trick. All you have to do is mix one tablespoon olive oil with some lemon and drink it down. It’s not gross at all–in fact it might be one of the more delicious shots you’ve ever tasted. After all, these two ingredients make a great base for healthy and delicious homemade salad dressing.
For the best results, you should drink it first thing in the morning after you wake up. Experts recommend using room temperature organic extra virgin olive oil along with the juice from an organic lemon. If you do this every day you could see the following four health benefits.
1. Help Reduce Your Risk Of Cardiovascular Disease
The oleic acid found in olive oil is great for your cardiovascular system, and when paired with a healthy lifestyle helps to reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
2. Get Some Relief From Rheumatoid Arthritis
This drink offers anti-inflammatory properties, which will help reduce inflammation and pain associated with arthritis.
3. Relieve Constipation And Finally Go Poo!
Olive oil is the perfect lubricant for your digestive system and lemon juice helps get your digestive juices moving in the right direction too. Plus, this little shot of liquid stimulates your liver and gallbladder, further assisting digestion.
4. Improve Liver & Gallbladder Health
Add ½-cup room temperature water to your lemon and olive oil mixture and drink it down about 1 hour before you eat a meal. This will help detox your gallbladder, kidneys and liver. Drinking this on a regular basis can help prevent or stall the progression of gallstones.
**If you have any underlying conditions, especially gallbladder problems, consult with your doctor before you start drinking this on a daily basis.
