Nutritional Benefits: 

Pucker power

Earthbound Farm Organic Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C, which promotes wound healing, supports a healthy immune system, and aids in skin health.

Lemons and other citrus fruits contain bioflavonoids — a class of antioxidants that, as part of a healthy diet, has been linked to a number of potential health benefits. The vitamin C in lemons also has antioxidant properties that, as part of a healthy diet, may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases.

Try squeezing a lemon over sautéed spinach to maximize your intake of iron; the vitamin C in the citrus helps the body absorb plant-based iron.
