All About Lemons!

Lemons are rich in vitamin C and flavonoids that work against infections like the flu and colds.


The lemon is a stimulant to the liver and is a dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons. Fresh lemon juice added to a large glass of water in the morning is a great liver detoxifier.

Lemons contain vitamin P (bioflavinoids) which helps strengthen blood vessels.


The citric acid in lemon juice can help dissolve gallstones, calcium deposits, and kidney stones.

Lemons can help freshen breath. To keep breath fresh, thoroughly rinse your mouth several times a day with the freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon in a glass of lukewarm water.

Lemons contain B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. Lemons contain more potassium than apples and grapes.

Lemon juice not only encourages healthy digestion by loosening toxins in your digestive tract, it helps to relieve symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn and bloating.
