A Well Balanced Diet: Spotlight on Superfoods – Lemons



Once Beyonce completed the Master Cleanse, lemons came into the spotlight for being an essential fruit used in natural detoxing. Here are some facts about lemons and why you should be including this superfood in your diet.

1) The citric acid naturally present in lemons will aid in digestion, urination, and elimination. Citric acids help produce digestive juices to assist in these processes. This reduces bloating and helps the body rid itself of toxins. It can also increase blood vessel function.

2) Lemons balance the body’s PH levels and create a more alkaline environment. A PH-neutral or alkaline state is the best way to ward off disease. Alternately, diseases such as cancer and diabetes thrive in bodies which are acidic.

3) Lemons are high in Vitamin C which helps the body absorb iron, and fight skin damage from environmental pollution and sun exposure. Vitamin C is essential in collagen production as well and can give the appearance of reduced cellulite and radiant skin. Vitamin C has also been known to naturally reduce inflammation and contain high levels of antioxidants.

Fire up your digestive tract by squirting some lemon into some warm water or tea or add to sparkling water to energize you during the day.
