Ingredient Spotlight: Lemons For Health!

lemon-water.jpgLemons, citrusy and fresh, are rich in Vitamin C, a uniquely water-soluble phytonutrient particularly helpful to the human body and its 50-65% water make-up. This water index provides ample entry surface area for Vitamin C to dissolve into our bodily systems and boost immunity levels. Score!

On double duty patrol, Vitamin C also has anti-oxidant properties that benefit the body’s general wellness. As Vitamin C travels through the body, it neutralizes free-radical cells that, left alone, can disrupt healthy cell production, leading to swelling, inflammation, and in severe cases, cancer.

Still not convinced? Lemon bioflavonoids can actually influence the cells in your body to engage either in mitosis, cell division, or apoptosis, cell death. These bioflavonoids can also benefit the liver and clear mucus.
