Health Benefits of Lemons and Lemon Nutrition Facts

Lemon juice is very cleansing, in fact I often clean my sink with it! Many raw food enthusiasts enjoy a glass of water with lemon juice on rising.

I often add freshly squeezed lemon juice to apple and carrot juices to give them a lovely zing, and it's brilliant in green drinks where it cuts through the green taste and makes them fresh and delicious.
