Lemon Juice

The lemon - The champion amongst the healing fruits:

The healing power is the result of a low energy content and a balanced level between sodium, calcium and its richness in vitamin C.

Eating lemons means the intake of vitamin C with no extra calories. An excess of vitamin C strengthens the body's defenses and prevents diseases, especially those related to the respiratory system. Coughs, hoarseness, tonsillitis, pneumonia, bronchitis, influenza, pleurisy and asthma should be listed here.
