3. Clear Gallstones
Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid that can form in your gallbladder. They can be painful and clog up your digestive system. Typically, the stone have to be surgically removed (3).
However, some people find relief by taking 3 parts olive oil and 1 part each of lemon and black pepper to dissolve the stones.
4. Canker Sores
To promote healing of the mucous membranes in your mouth, dissolve a tablespoon of Himalayan salt into a cup of warm water and swish it around your mouth after every meal. This will help clear away bad bacteria and promote healing. If you’re brave, add a little lemon too: it’ll sting, but your cancer sore will quickly melt away.
5. Weight Loss
To boost your metabolism and shed a few more pounds, drink 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and one tablespoon of honey in a glass of warm water. The polyphenols in lemon will prevent weight gain and improve insulin sensitivity to help you burn fat (4). Additionally, the piperine in black pepper will prevent the formation of new fat cells (5).
