Lemons, fruitful gifts from above with the healing powers of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and phytonutrients

Lemons, nutritional and beneficial for optimal health

As tart as lemon juice may be to the taste, it's health benefits are indefinitely sweet to the human body.  With a nutrient rich profile that's stacked with vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, flavonoids and phytochemicals, lemons are ultrahydrating foods that immunize, alkalize and purify (and even sterilize) the body, all of its cells and its support systems.  And, when it comes to consumption, it really doesn't get much faster or any easier than just slicing and squeezing the healing juices out of lemons for drinking as a beverage; topping as a dressing; marinating as a seasoning; calming as a sleeping aid (when combined with warm water and honey); cleansing as a disinfectant; and/or what-have-you.  Lemons are a heaven-sent food and their fruitful powers are rather limitless.

Bananas are nutrition powerhouses

In addition to providing for the perfect texture of any smoothie and supporting those of us on set diets to either lose weight or gain weight, bananas are an excellent source of numerous amounts of healing nutrients like minerals (such as potassium, copper, selenium, magnesium, molybdenum and boron), vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and other phytonutrients.  Bananas are also full of fiber, water and pulp, too, aiding us in suppressing and satisfying our appetites.  And, as Anthony William of Medical Medium alludes to in his book Life-Changing Foods, bananas are one of Nature's gifts for our digestive system, even known to reverse bodily conditions like IBS, Crohn's Disease and Colitis.  Whether eaten raw from the peel, blended up in a smoothie, chopped with your kale or what-have-you, enjoy your bananas and the healing powers they pass along with their pleasurably unique taste and conveniently soothing digestive benefits.
