In brief: Healthy choices

Lemon is a healthy part of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.
Slices of lemon in plain water are a great way to try to kick the soda habit. Adding lemon zest and juice is a help in reducing salt intake. Lemon on the skin has been used to lighten it a tiny bit, but dries it. Lemon scent, like lavendar, is a stress reducer. And lemon's vitamin c is helpful to your body.
