The health benefits of eating lemons

Like lemon’s cousin, the orange, it’s full of vitamin C which is an important antioxidant as well as potentially reducing blood pressure and the risks of strokes and heart complications. 

If you’re eating the pulp then you’re getting a great amount of fibre into your diet which is great for promoting good digestive health.
