Lemons are a great source of vitamin C but there are many other benefits as well. Lemon water helps aid in digestion, elimination and antioxidants.
Rise and Shine
When it comes to a glowing complexion and an aid for weight loss, look no further than a morning dose of lemon water. A quick squeeze in an eight ounce glass of water helps to rejuvenate the skin with vitamin C, which also kick starts metabolism and bowel function.
In Sickness and In Health
Lemons boost the immune system and help to fight off infections. A daily dose will help ward off colds, stomach disorders and serious infection. Lemons have strong antibacterial properties. Therefore, they are good to prevent several bacteria caused illnesses including the stomach flu.
Lemons are an excellent source of antioxidants. Antioxidants rid the body of toxins as well as the free radicals that cause aging.
