Nutritional Aspects

PhotoA lemon and a grapefruit, taken daily, are the best guarantee to get a healthy life. These two citric products, an ideal condiment, contain nutritive properties useful to prevent the risk of cancer, problems with the circulation of the blood and, of course, to keep away colds and flu. They posses vitamin C. Lemons and grapefruits combined with other Mediterranean products are the best guarantee to keep healthy and in a very high animic state. It's that easy.

No magic potions or daily medicines. If you are looking for the best formula to live a healthy life and to avoid severe illnesses, the answer is near you and it's not a big secret: a lemon and a grapefruit taken daily, either in a juice or taken as a condiment... and enjoy your life.

The lemon and the grapefruit, main examples of the Mediterranean diet, are the main carriers of vitamin C. This vitamin is the best shield against all types of cancer. Thanks to this vitamin collagen is produced by the body; this collagen is important for the growth and restoration of the tissue's, gums', vases', bones' and teeth's cells, and also for the metabolization of the fat, this provides it with the power of reducing cholesterol.

In addition, the main vitamin component of the lemon and the grapefruit allows a better healing of wounds, helps with bloody gums, reduces the effect of many allergic substances, helps reducing the effect of getting a cold and to strength all defences of the body.

Apart from vitamin C, lemon and grapefruit also contain vitamin B and vitamin E. They are also rich in potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus, apart from being a source of copper, zinc, iron and manganese. They are terrific to reinforce the immune system because they intensify the activity of the white corpuscles.
They are also excellent to ease rheumatic and arthritic pains; its acid is metabolised during the digestion in order to produce potassic carbonate.

Lemon and grapefruit also protect the mucous membrane that covers the stomach, apart from stimulating the functions of pancreas and liver.

The only inconvenience is that vitamin C is expelled three hours after its ingestion; therefore the best thing would be to eat not one but several lemons and grapefruits per day.
