A Guide to Feeding our Future

Ever wonder where Lemonade got its name? Lemon-Aid! My take on this was it was so named because of its liver-cleansing and digestive-supporting properties.

You can easily support your body and brain through simple lemons. When you support your liver and digestion with regular consumption of lemon-aid (fresh, homemade – not the commercial kind), you can clear brain fog, raise your energy level, and also alleviate some allergy symptoms, both inhalant and digestive.

More Benefits of Lemon-Aid:

  • strengthens liver enzymes
  • aids digestion
  • regulates blood carbohydrate levels
  • aids in new enzyme production
  • contains natural antiseptic that kills harmful bacteria
  • is a powerful antioxidant
  • exhibits anti-fungal properties

It’s also a very simple but rewarding drink – and perfect as a refreshing summer beverage.

Try this easy recipe to enjoy with family and friends!
