Lemons are a rich source of Vitamin C , which is the most important antioxidant found in nature. Vitamin C helps to neutralize free radicals both inside and outside of cells. Free radicals are responsible for damaging cells leading to inflammation and chronic disease.
Vitamin C also helps prevent buildup of plaque and the progression of atherosclerosis and heart disease. The citric acid, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, calcium, pectin and limonene found in lemons are powerful nutrients which give a boost to the immune system, helping to ward off infections and disease. Lemons are considered one of the most alkalizing foods you can eat. They have a high, more pure concentration of negatively charged ions than any other fruit, which may help increase the flow of oxygen to the brain.
