Are you staying hydrated this summer? Try adding lemons to your water for a variety of health benefits. Lemons  have almost half of your daily value of vitamin C, which assists in the production of collagen, helps in the prevention of wrinkles, and defends your skin against free-radical damage. They can help aid digestion, boost your immune system and they are a good source of potassium. Water helps carry nutrients to your cells, so staying properly hydrated is important,  especially in the heat of the summer sun.

Try waking up to a glass of lemon water along with your morning coffee, or try adding some lemon slices to your post work out water bottle.
