It can be used as a cleaning agent, it has nutritional values, it can be used to flavour food, it can be used as insect repellent, and the list goes on and on and on.

Not only does this ensure you get vitamin C, it also cleanses your system. I would you recommend you drink lemon and water before eating anything.
