When you drink warm water with lemon juice and salt in the morning, the body reacts, the first thing the kidney want to do is eliminate the salt. As it has a drying effect, the system is already dehydrated and wants fluids to be hydrated but not with salt. Many things are preserved with salt, especially meat and fish for months and years sometimes, because of salts drying effects, it absorbs water. As such, during the process of elimination, the toxins accumulated in guts gets drawn out as well. First thing in the morning, you will notice the urine is yellowish, and the reason is toxins getting discharged from the body.
Warm one or two cups of water, squeeze a whole lemon juice. Add a pinch of salt or according to your taste and drink it up.

Citrus is a kind of common fruit and contains multiple beneficial nutrients for human beings. Flavonoids, as a class of plant secondary metabolites, exist in citrus fruits abundantly. Due to their broad range of pharmacological properties, citrus flavonoids have gained increased attention. Accumulative in vitro and in vivo studies indicate protective effects of polymethoxyflavones (PMFs) against the occurrence of cancer. PMFs inhibit carcinogenesis by mechanisms like blocking the metastasis cascade, inhibition of cancer cell mobility in circulatory systems, proapoptosis, and antiangiogenesis. This review systematically summarized the anticarcinogenic effect of citrus flavonoids in cancer therapy, together with the underlying important molecular mechanisms, in the purpose of further exploring the more effective use of citrus peel flavonoids.
