Lemons are Nutritional Powerhouses

Hot summertime temps make it imperative to stay hydrated. Adding lemon to your water can give you even more health benefits!

1. It promotes hydration
2. It's a good source of vitamin C
3. It improves your skin quality
4. It supports weight loss
5. It aids digestion
6. It freshens breath
7. It helps prevent kidney stones

When making lemon water, always use fresh lemons and not artificial lemon from a bottle.To make lemon water, squeeze half a lemon into 8 ounces of boiling, warm, or cold water. To make the drink as healthy as possible, use filtered water and organic lemons.
Infuse flavor to lemon water by adding:
* a few springs of mint
* a teaspoon of maple syrup or raw honey
* a slice of fresh ginger
* a dash of cinnamon
