//NUTRITION// Lemons are an excellent source of Vitamin C and a good source of folate. Folate is a B-Vitamin that is used in our bodies to make DNA and other genetic material. It also aids in the process of cell division.
Lemons are famously known in history for preventing scurvy in sailors up until the end of the 18th century. They would sell for $1 per lemon which in our time is expensive but in the 18th century, that was a fortune. ▪
//ENJOY// In China, they often start their day by drinking a litre of lemon water in the morning. This kick starts their digestion and flushes out toxins for the day. It can be a tall order for some to start their day but you will see an improvement in your skin, waistline and digestion.
Combine 1 litre of water with half of a juiced lemon and consume the whole thing before eating or drinking anything else first thing in the morning.
