Why They’re Healthy:
Just one lemon has more than 100 percent of your day by day intake of vitamin C, which may help increase “good” HDL cholesterol levels and strengthen bones.
Citrus flavonoids found in lemons may help repress the development of tumor cells act as an anti-inflammatory.
Add a slice of lemon to your green tea. One study found that citrus increases your body’s ability to absorb the antioxidants in the tea by about 80 percent.
