Zoom on the lemon : with us, the lemon is available all year round. This exceptional fruit has the advantage of being very low in calories and yet very rich in nutrition. It has 34.3 calories per 100 grams of fresh pulp and is highly concentrated in potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, iron and copper. But the most impressive thing is the vitamin C content! Moreover, it is very often used during detox diets in hot infusion or in slices in lukewarm water. Very rich in antioxidants, it protects cells against free radicals. In winter, a few drops of lemon in a spoon of honey are the perfect remedy to ward off germs! This citrus fruit also protects against certain cancers and cardiovascular diseases. It reduces cholesterol levels and acts as an anti-inflammatory on the acidities of the body.
