Lemon Facts

 Lemons are low in calories, with around 29 calories per 100 g, which is one of the lowest among the citrus family. 
It contains no saturated fats or cholesterol, is low in sugars but high in dietary fiber. 
The little devils are incredibly high in vitamin C (ascorbic acid) which is a water soluble natural anti-oxidant which is great for digestion. In fact! Many dieticians suggest drinking lemon juice in hot or cold water as it stimulates digestion. I try to drink it before every meal of the day.

Lemons and other fruits from the citrus family also help in the prevention of scurvy, and assists the body in developing resistance to infections and inflammation. 
So start trying to incorporate more lemon into your diet!
