Keep Your Immune System Strong
Lemons are highly prized for their immune-boosting properties. Vitamin C, one of their most abundant nutrients, protects against oxidative stress and may shorten the duration of respiratory tract infections. When combined with zinc, its benefits are even greater. Basil is an excellent source of zinc.
Vitamin C also plays a key role in skin health and cardiovascular function. This nutrient has been shown to lower the risk of stroke and heart disease. Dietary fiber, another nutrient in lemons, protects your heart too by reducing cholesterol levels.
Pectin, a type of fiber that occurs naturally in lemon and other fruits, expands in your stomach and suppresses appetite. This superfood is low in calories, so you can enjoy it anytime without feeling guilty.
If you need one more reason to include lemons in your diet, consider their ability to prevent kidney stones. A single cup of lemon juice daily may help prevent stone formation.
Fight Stress Naturally
Our Basil Lemonade Infused Water Detox Drink not only keeps you supple and boosts your immune system, but also wards off stress. Basil, one of its main ingredients, is a natural adaptogen. This means that it improves your ability to cope with stress and offsets its harmful effects on the mind and body.
This aromatic herb protects against physical, psychological, metabolic, and chemical stress. Your daily workouts, for example, increase stress levels and promote the formation of free radicals in the body. As a result, you may experience swelling and inflammation, fatigue, fluid retention, and other symptoms. Basil can help prevent these issues and restore your well-being.
Enjoy this beverage first thing in the morning, during lunch break, after exercise, or anytime throughout the day. It’s refreshing and low in calories while offering a plethora of nutrients.
