The Power of Lemons. Squeeze one today!

Lemon squeezedNeed a few reasons to love lemons?

Here you go:

  • Lemons have strong antibacterial and antiviral properties.
  • Lemons are immune boosters, high in antioxidants like vitamin C.
  • Lemons contain citric acid but when consumed they are actually very alkalizing.
  • Lemons help to stimulate and detoxify the liver.
  • Lemons contain “limonene”.  This oil is an excellent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, fat cleanser and bowel stimulant.

I squeeze lemon juice in my green tea every morning because it increases green tea’s anti-oxidant powers.

I also squeeze lemon juice on the kale I put in my juicer as it enhances its phytonutrient punch.

    they also taste good in water. for those that really don’t like to drink water, squeeze in lemon and drop the lemon in the water. a quarter lemon in 16oz of water makes it taste good, but not too sour, so you don’t need sugar. Because of the detoxification, they also help you lose weight. LEMONS ARE GOOD!!
