Lemons are a citrus fruit with a distinctive sour taste that makes them a great addition to a variety of foods and drinks.
Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C - the juice of one lemon contains about a third of the daily recommended value. Lemons also contain vital phytochemicals like flavonoids, carotenoids, and polyphenols, which may inhibit inflammation and tumor growth.
