For the Love of Lemons

Lemons

Did you know that lemons not only provide you with powerful doses of vitamin C and potassium to help you battle colds and flu but also have so many other great health benefits? A fresh lemon squeezed in water can aid in digestion and help your body absorb nutrients better. It can also settle an upset tummy or even soothe a sore throat when mixed with honey. Your skin will also benefit as this fruit contains flavonoids that are full of antioxidants which can help fight free radical damage. Need to lose some weight? Lemons are full of pectin which helps you feel full longer.  Be sure to get your day off to a good start without a caffeine crash by downing a generous glass of lemon water!
