The effects of citrus juice has been a Mexican cold remedy for many years. This is because it can be very detoxifying and can also help kick-start enzyme production to help aid digestion. Lemons are a classic Mexican cure for a cold because they are high in Vitamin C, with each lemon providing about half the required daily intake. This makes it one of the most essential Mexican home remedies for a cold because it strengthens our immune system and cold-fighting abilities. Lemons also contain a boost to potassium and folate levels while lutein and zeaxanthin will help to keep eyes healthy. They contain significant amounts of calcium, thiamin, niacin, Vitamin B6, phosphorus, magnesium and copper, all of which contribute to health and vitality.
