Lemons are high in vitamin C, supplying four times more than oranges. As the primary water-soluble antioxidant in the body, vitamin C travels through your system, preventing cellular damage and cholesterol buildup by zapping any free radicals it meets.

Recently, researchers discovered a substance in lemons called LIMONENE. This essential oil has been shown to shrink cancerous tumors, detoxify carcinogens in the body, and stimulate the healthy flow of lymph fluids.

Lemons assist in the digestive process by producing necessary absorption of protein and minerals from foods.

Lemon juice also helps liquefy fat so that it can be flushed out of your system faster. And, as if that weren''t enough, drinking lemon juice in hot water acts as a mild diuretic, ridding the body of retained water and toxins. It may also help to reduce cellulite by cleansing the lymphatic system and stimulating blood flow to the skin.

Lemons also provide small amounts of vitamin B6, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and folate.
