Lemons are a clever little fruit. They are a good source of vitamin C and antioxidants, which are thought to boost health and wellbeing in several ways.
Plus if you want even more immune boosting recipes – our April 28 Day Challenge is the Immune Boosting and Budget round – join here
Lemons contain vitamin C, and a small amount of a number of vitamins and minerals, including B-vitamins ( niacin, folate, thiamin, riboflavin) as well as potassium, zinc, and magnesium.
Lemons can help with the treatment of constipation, dental problems, throat infections, fever, burns, respiratory disorders, and high blood pressure.
