Sweet and Sour Citrus Juice

Citrus juice
By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

I love to include plenty of sour fruits like grapefruit and lemon in my juices. Their high vitamin C content offers a long list of health benefits, which includes helping protect the body from free radical damage. Vitamin C is required in the synthesis of collagen, which helps wounds heal and holds blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bones together. Collagen is also important for youthful healthy skin. Citrus fruits are high in bioflavonoids, which are beneficial in the treatment and prevention of blood vessels and lymph system disorders, including hemorrhoids, chronic venous insufficiency, leg ulcers, easy bruising, nosebleeds and lymphedema.

Citrus also contains an excellent amount of folate and potassium, essential for both men and women. Sour fruits such as lemon also support good digestion and bile production, and is one of the many reasons why lemon water is so highly regarded as a morning health tonic.

Pucker up and enjoy this tangy recipe.
