Reasons To Love Lemons
The antioxidants found in lemons have properties that can protect cells against oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can lead to inflammation, which is a precursor to cardiovascular disease.
Lemons also contain vitamin C, which has been shown to aid in decreasing the severity and duration of sickness with having adequate levels in the body.
