Get ready to pucker! Lemon juice might leave a sour taste in your mouth, but it could also help you lose weight and cure your sore throat - and we're not talking crazy lemon master cleanses, here! Lemon juice contains pectin, a soluble fiber that has been shown to aid in weight loss. Warm lemon juice in water can also stimulate your digestive tract first thing in the morning, helping you eliminate waste from your body more quickly. Lemon also contains anticancer properties and high levels of vitamin C, helping build immune system strength and warding off fevers and colds.

Selection Process

For best results, squeeze lemon juice fresh from bright, unbruised lemons. If buying packaged, be sure to opt for pure, organic, pesticide and chemical-free varieties.
