Lemons are a good digestive aid because they stimulate the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. They are also rich in vitamin C which helps with the absorption of the iron in leafy greens, making lemon juice a smart addition to salads.

Surprisingly, lemons are not acidic to the body, but alkaline. Diseases, including cancer, thrive in an acidic body.

Choose thin-skinned lemons that are heavy for their size.
