This raw vegan lemonade recipe is refreshing, detoxing, and great for summer. It is also wonderful for overcoming a cold quickly because it contains lemon juice and many fresh herbs. Quick and fun to make too! 

Raw Lemon Juice

Raw lemon juice is antioxidant rich and has many anti-cancer properties. It is rich in Vitamin C, and essential for a functioning immune system, helps digestion (that’s a huge bonus for me, as my digestion is definitely a weak part of my body), and helps wounds heal faster.

Raw lemon juice is also amazing for healing cold and flu naturally, and very quickly. You can read my entire article on this here.
