The roots of lemon and lime trees go deep into the earth, extracting dozens of precious trace minerals that get passed onto you when you consume the fruits. Lemons and limes are ultra-hydrating and electrolyte-producing, because they are a top source of mineral salts and trace mineral salts.
These citrus siblings have some of the most highly absorbable vitamin C around. Fresh-squeezed lemon or lime offers bioactive calcium that your body craves. Plus, phytochemicals called limonoids in lemons and limes actually bond the vitamin C and calcium together, so that wherever one goes in the body, the other rides along. This enhances the bioavailability of each, and also creates alkalinity in the body to help prevent the growth of almost every type of cancer.
The antioxidant flavonoids in lemons and limes are another ally in fighting disease. And when you’re dealing with a cold, flu, bronchitis, or pneumonia, lemon is one of the most effective mucus expellers you can find. Lemons and limes are also amazing cleansers of the liver, kidneys, spleen, thyroid, and gallbladder. They purge the many toxic substances we collect from exposure to plastics, synthetic chemicals, radiation, and poor food choices.
When going through any sort of detox process, even if it’s just increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables in your diet, it’s a good idea to drink lemon or lime water first thing in the morning. Lemon or lime water is more beneficial for this process than plain water, because filtration has often taken the life out of drinking water, and these citrus stars reawaken its healing abilities.
How To Use:
Drink 16-32oz of Medical Medium Lemon or Lime Water every day upon waking. Use lemons and limes as salad dressing, in fresh juices and smoothies. Squeeze lemon or lime juice on top of fruit bowls, steamed vegetables, or any other meal.
