Lemon  Citrus limon
A powerful germicidal agent that removes free radicals from your liver.

The antiseptic properties stimulate white blood cells which boosts the immune system.

One of the most alkalizing foods, its use also enhances the absorption of iron and calcium.

Home remedies include using the juice as a hair rinse for shine, applying fresh juice to relieve the pain of a sunburn, rubbing on skin to lighten dark spots and placing the juice in the nostrils daily to prevent illness.


Select firm, heavy and bright lemons with a finely grained thin skin.

1 medium sized lemon contains approximately 2 tablespoons of juice and 1 tablespoon of zest.

The vitamin C in lemons oxidizes quickly so use immediately after juicing.


Native to India where it grows wild but is grown globally.

Originally used to prevent poisoning; it has been used as preventative medicine for over 5,000 years.
