Lemons are supremely healthy fruits that should be included in your daily diet.
They are simply jam packed with vital nutrients and can aid us immensely in our search for continuing good health.
They are part of the citrus family and are considered one of the most popular fruits in the world. They have been used not only for food but for medicinal purposes since the beginning of mankind.
My day always starts with freshly squeezed lemon juice in warm water.
There are extremely important reasons for doing this.
First that water replaces water lost during sleep if you use the bathroom in the middle of the night, or if you sweat while sleeping.
Waking up somewhat dehydrated is not a good option.
Secondly, that lemon water helps to boost the immune system to ward off infections and illness. This is especially important now during this time of the Covid crisis! Also drinking this lemon water helps flush out the toxins that have accumulated in your liver.
So for good health and energy, and a happy liver, start your morning off this way!
Lemons are extremely versatile when used in baking or cooking.
Their somewhat strong, pungent taste can wake up dishes from pasta to fish to sauces and everything in between. Use lemon zest as a great way to improve and add taste in many recipes.
Medicinally, lemons have been used in various ways because of the high amount of Vitamin C contained in each one. Because of this, lemons can help boost mood since the vitamin C helps boost serotonin, the happiness hormone. And it’s even been shown to help relieve some pain.
Here are some of the benefits of including this amazing citrus fruit to your daily regimen:
♥ They promote hydration.
♥ They’re a good source of vitamin C, folate, fiber, and potassium.
♥ They improve your skin quality because of the Vitamin E contained therein.
♥ They aid digestion since they contain substances that help to increase the body’s ability to break down food.

♥ They allow for healthier teeth in that they increase saliva production which in turn helps prevent the existence of bacteria in the mouth. That will then help you to have cleaner and healthier teeth.
♥ They can help prevent kidney stones by helping to dissolve and break up gathering calcium and other mineral deposits.
