Lemon is one of the most popular and versatile of the citrus fruits. You can use the juice, the rind and the peel in a wide variety of food and drinks....even the leaves make a good cuppa! Lemons can also be widely used in aromatherapy and for cleaning. An all round winner!!!
As a rich source of vitamin C, lemon promotes immense health benefits ranging from its antibacterial and antiviral properties to its immune boosting abilities. One of the most common ways to reap the health benefits of lemon is by juicing it... our favourite! Lemon juice acts as a digestive and a detoxifying agent and helps in cleaning the liver leading to better digestive health.
Follow some of our Greenroots tips to feel tip top! It's easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Cut a chunk of lemon and plop it into your mug of warm water each morning and drink it first thing on an empty stomach. It'll set you up for the day...boost that digestive system and leave you feeling hydrated and revitalised for what lies ahead.
