Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are a concentrated source of energy, and are rich in carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Juices with a high content of vitamins, such as citrus fruits or cabbage, help the body absorb iron when added to a meal. This is particularly beneficial to the health of children, who often get inadequate amounts of iron in the irregular diets.
As the interest in nutrition increases and people are getting more and more conscious about what they eat, the interest in fruit and its nutrients also grows.

Lemon Juice Therapy
Citric acid, one of the products of our digestive process, is the only acid that reacts with calcium in your body, forming a unique salt. As this salt is dissolved, your body receives phosphorus and calcium – elements that regenerate bone tissue and normalize metabolism. Supplying it in the form of lemon juice allows your body to save energy, which is then used for removing salty deposits from our muscles, bones, blood vessels and joints. Citric acid reacts with amines to form aspartic acid. Natural aspartic acid is very helpful in preventing diseases and that is what empowers lemon juice therapy.
You can make tasty and healthy lemon water or detox lemonade by mixing the juice of one or two lemons with water and adding some sugar or honey to it.
You can consume as much lemon juice as you want, as long as you dilute the juice with sufficient water. Instead of sugar, honey is preferable as it is healthier and does not inhibit the properties of the lemon. Remember to use fresh lemons, and to consume the juice immediately after making it, as lemon juice oxidizes very fast.
