There are several benefits to having a balance in the body’s pH.

Anthony Clavien knows first hand how important liver health is, and lemons have a lot to offer in this department. According to Jethro Kloss in his book Back to Eden,”The lemon is a wonderful stimulant to the liver and is also a solvent for uric acid and other poisons.” It is also high in Vitamin C. This is needed to manufacture glutathione, a tripeptide the body uses to neutralize toxins, therefore aiding the liver with detoxification.

The vitamin C contained in lemons also helps neutralize free radicals within the body, which is responsible for aging and the formation of a variety of diseases. In fact, lemon is known in many countries to be a cure for a large number of diseases. In addition to combating depression and other nervous disorders, it is also regarded as a treatment that may aid weight loss and cancer prevention.
