Lemon water can set right the course of your bodily functions. Pixabay

While lemon water is popular as an easy weight-loss remedy, it can also set right the course of your bodily functions, if taken the correct way.


Lifestyle coach Luke Coutinho, and ‘Bahubali’ actress Anushka Shetty in their 2019 book, ‘The Magic Weight Loss Pill’, spell the transformational power of this simple beverage.

Rich in Vitamins C and B, riboflavin, and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, lemon is known to be a fat-cutter. But, as the authors note in one of their 62 lifestyle fixes for weight loss, lemon alone won’t burn fat but would add value to the body in numerous ways.

If you are at your ideal weight, you can have a lemon a day. Underweight people can have half of it, and overweight people around two lemons a day.

Lemon has anti-aging properties as well, whether consumed or applied on the skin. It can be applied to the scalp to reduce dandruff, and give shine and volume to one’s mane.

Lemon juice rubbed onto the face and allowed to dry, can help get rid of blackheads and acne, and reduces wrinkles.

Benefits of drinking lemon water:

1. It is a liver tonic. Use this concoction to detoxify your liver.
2. Lemon water could help in toothache relief.
3. As the juice is rich in potassium, it is good for your heart and for controlling high blood pressure, reducing mental stress and nausea.
4. To alleviate asthma or respiratory problems
5. Lemon juice mixed with organic jaggery is good for smokers, as it replenishes the Vitamin C lost because of smoking
6. It is a natural blood purifier
7. Use it for gargling if you have a sore throat

How to use: Fill a bottle with water and throw in some slices of lemon with skin. Sip on this throughout the day. You can also start your day with warm water containing lemon juice and organic honey.

Their book concentrates on the reason we get such diseases in the first place, while the second is filled with 62 easy and practicable changes that will have you feeling healthier and happier and achieving all your health goals without the rigor and hard work of a hardcore diet or fitness regime.

Fortnite users look forward to new features

By Steve Carty

As we all know, Fortnite has been a very popular battle royale game for a very long time and this is only because of its building aspect. People only try or play this game because of the building aspect. No game has ever had this feature where you could build fight your opponent for high ground and all. It's crazy how they even thought of this. Fortnite has been around for many years now. There used to be a different map in Chapter 1. People were really mad when Fortnite changed the map. People had a sentimental feeling towards that map and thousands of players stopped playing the game and switched to Apex Legends.

Fortnite has a huge map with different pinned locations in it. It's a game that you can't master in a week or two. It can take months or even years depending on how much you practice. People spend hours in creative just to learn a new technique with the building. Some people have been playing since the launch of Fortnite and are still bad at the game. Yes! It's possible to be bad even after you practice a lot. I'd suggest you spend a lot of time in creative and just free build there to get good at it. Once you've mastered the art of building, you'll be good to go and can outbuild anyone for high ground. There is another thing called editing in this game. People use the latest working Fortnite hacks for this where it edits in 0.1 seconds. People won't even see you editing this and this will make you a step ahead of them and due to that, you can easily kill them before they even notice.

People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.
