Authen-tip: Loving Lemons for Optimal Health

Lemons are such a fun fruit! I always squeeze a generous amount of fresh lemon juice in my water throughout the day. Lemons are a good source of important antioxidants that help to keep our immune system strong. Lemons are a good source of vitamin C, folate, potassium, and limonene (a chemical that has been shown to slow the growth rate of cancer). Did you know that lemons have anti-fungal and antiseptic properties? That’s why they are so helpful for sore throats. Include a lemon in your diet every day!
