Sweet and Sour Citrus Juice

Sour fruits like grapefruit and lemon provide high vitamin C content which offers a long list of health benefits, including protecting 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. Citrus also contains an excellent amount of folate and potassium, essential for both men and women.
