DID YOU KNOW? 100g of LEMON provides 128% of the daily requirement of VITAMIN C
 
From an anti-aging perspective, Vitamin C (also known as L-ascorbic acid) is a powerful antioxidant that provides protection from free radicals. It helps to protect and strengthen the skin, minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and brightens and promotes an even skin tone.
 
Aging is inevitable - but we have ways of helping our bodies to slow down the aging process. Nutrition, Exercise, Adequate Sleep, Daily De-Stress, Adequate Hydration all contribute to anti-aging and aging well!
 
Collagen production is reduced as we age. This leads to sagging of the skin. Vitamin C can help to build collagen, protect against free radicals and environmental aggressors, reduce the appearance of premature aging (fine lines and wrinkles), reduce inflammation and skin discolouration and restore skin's youthful appearance.
 
GIVE YOURSELF A GLOWING COMPLEXION by incorporating this powerful, anti-aging SUPERSTAR ANTIOXIDANT ~ Vitamin C ~ into your daily routine. 
HOW? Consume high Vitamin C containing foods (citrus fruits, kiwi fruit, pineapple, strawberries, papaya, mango, red/yellow bell peppers, broccoli/cauliflower/brussels sprouts, kale/watercress/spinach, parsley) and use it topically (Vitamin C enriched skin care).   
 
                       This is ESSENTIAL for anti-aging and aging well!
