SFH #82: Don’t Sleep on Lemons
They pack a powerful health punch 🍋 🥊
I'm cutting up and squeezing in 1/3 to 1/2 of lemon the majority of the time I drink water. It is because lemons contain soluble fiber, vitamin c, citric acid, and polyphenols combining for a nutritional power punch. I believe in lemons so much that I leave the peels on in my smoothie recipes and keep a container of a blended-up whole lemon, fresh ginger, and fresh turmeric in my fridge to pour into my green tea. I got the idea from Mr. Jim Kwik. Let’s get right to it.
The Power of the Lemon 🍋
They help us digest and balance our gut health.
They support heart health.
They help us metabolize fat and fight insulin resistance.
They help us grow and develop through better iron absorption.
They can fight against and aid in the prevention of cancer.
