When Life Gives You Lemons...
There is so much more to lemons than meets the eye. Here are 5 reasons we love lemons!
1. Supports the immune system.
Lemons are jam packed with vitamin C which helps your immune system fight off colds and infections. Lemons also give you a healthy serving of magnesium, potassium and copper.
2. Boosts iron absorption.
Lemons are high in vitamin C and can help boost iron absorption. Squeezing lemon on a salad or in water when you’re eating an iron rich food such as red meat can help maximise the iron you absorb. This helps to prevent iron deficiencies which are very common in women.
3. Low in sugar.
Lemon juice is quite low in sugar meaning it can add extra flavour to food or water without adding the extra calories.
4. Antioxidant power.
The antioxidants found in lemons helps reduce the damage caused by free radicals. This can keep your skin looking younger and help keep your heart healthy.
5. They’re tasty!
Lemons can add a little extra zing to plain water which will help you boost your daily water intake and stay hydrated.
