Drinking Hot Water & Lemon in the Morning
Adding some of the zest of a lemon to a tablespoon of the lemon's juice gives 1,600 oxygen radical absorbency capacity (ORAC) to one's diet. The higher a food's ORAC value, the more free radical-fighting antioxidants one gets. The antioxidants also are said to aid in the lowering of the risk of cancer when eaten as fresh fruit. The juice of a lemon also provides over 30 mg of vitamin C, a high amount, almost half of the daily dose for women and a third of that for men.
