Lemons

Known to improve liver function, all citrus and sour fruits contain malic acid. Malic Acid found in sour fruits (like apples, lemons, limes and grapefruits) assist the body in breaking down fat, thus thought to prevent the formation of gall stones. Though citrus juice is thought to be an acid, the effect on the digestive system is alkalizing making it an important digestive aid.

Hesperidin is a potent bioflavonoid found in the pulps and rinds of citrus fruits. Hesperidin is useful in dealing with the viruses that cause herpes, the flu, and certain respiratory ailments.  Hesperidin fights allergic reactions by blocking the release of histamine. It has an alkalizing effect on the system which helps reduce bloating and edema like symptoms.
