Lemon Tea provides nutritional and medicinal benefits that stimulate health and well-being. It is also very soothing and tastes great. Lemon juice contains vitamin C, calcium, and potassium.
Paul Pitchford, author of Healing with Whole Foods, states that lemon is " perhaps the most valuable fruit therapeutically for people who have eaten high-fat/protein diet."
It serves as an internal cleanser and astringent, which makes it useful for eliminating mucous, parasites, colds, flus, and coughs. It is a super food and also known to help fight infections. It also helps maintain the alkalinity in the body.
This tea, when used daily, will improve your skin and complexion, improve digestion, and make the body more alkaline. It will help cleanse the colon and give the metabolism a kick.
This fruit is historically known for its use to fight scurvy because of its high vitamin C content.
Drink it any time of day. Serve warm, room temperature, or chilled. It is the perfect healthy replacement for morning coffee. Some people drink warm water to start their morning. This tea would be a good alternative.
Caution: Lemon is not recommended for people who have acid reflux or stomach ulcers.
