Nutritious Foods: Lemon

We believe regular physical activity together with a balanced diet is the perfect formula for feeling better with ourselves and generally living a better life.

 

In the coming weeks, we’ll share some of our favourite foods packed with nutrients. We start today with the king of citrus fruits, Mr Lemon.

 

Although everyone knows the popular saying, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade”, not everyone is aware of the many benefits that lemons have on our organism.

 

Here are just some of the many positive effects lemons have on our bodies:

 

  • Detox action on our liver, which loves sourness
  • Keeps the body hydrated & provides electrolytes to the body
  • Helps you feel full while promoting healthy digestion
  • It helps to minimise joint & muscle aches

 

Let’s start the day with a glass of warm water with a spoonful of lemon juice mixed in. It’s an ideal support during the changing period as we go from winter to spring. Spring is also the perfect season to detox our liver: let’s prune the old branches and prepare to embrace the ‘new’ beginnings, following our inspirations!

 

Have a super start of the week.
