The Benefits Of It

1) Lemons are a rich source of vitamin C, providing 64% of the Daily Value in a 100 g serving (table). Other essential nutrients, however, have insignificant content (table).

Lemons contain numerous phytochemicals, including polyphenols, terpenes, and tannins. As with other citrus fruits, they have significant concentrations of citric acid (about 47 g/l in juice).

2) A typical apple serving weighs 242 grams and provides 126 calories with a moderate content of dietary fiber (table).Otherwise, there is generally low content of essential nutrients (table).

3) Ginger, the "root" or the rhizome, of the plant Zingiber officinale, has been a popular spice and herbal medicine for thousands of years. It has a long history of use in Asian, Indian, and Arabic herbal traditions. In China, for example, ginger has been used to help digestion and treat stomach upset, diarrhea, and nausea for more than 2,000 years. Ginger has also been used to help treat arthritis, colic, diarrhea, and heart conditions.

4) Kale comes from the Acephala group of the Brassica oleracea (oleracea var) species that includes collard greens. There are two main varieties of kale: one that has green leaves and one that has purple. Interestingly, the central leaves do not form a head, which is one reason why kale is considered to be more closely related to wild cabbage than most domesticated forms of vegetables.

5) As with other dark leafy greens, the antioxidants contained within romaine lettuce are believed to help prevent cancer.
