Lemons are a great source of Vitamin C and anti-oxidants!

Anti-oxidants, also known as flavanoids, help reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer, reduce inflammation, and boost your immune system to say the least.

Vitamin C is needed to make collagen, it aids in the absorption of iron, strengthens our immune system, may help lower blood pressure, helps to regulate blood sugar levels, and so much more!

Lemons contain rutin which is believed to strengthen blood vessels and be a natural remedy for ailments such as hemorrhoids and varicose veins. 

Lemons can help with a wide variety of ailments...from gout to acne to seasonal allergies.. even dandruff!

Drinking lemon water can aid digestion and help detox the liver.

*The peels are also a refreshing treat for your garbage disposal.
