10 Reasons Lemon Juice Is Good For You

Lemons are amazing and we aren't exaggerating. They are great for adding flavour but are also very healthy.

Here are 10 reasons you should use lemons starting TODAY:

1. Prevent kidney stone: Consuming one half cup of lemon juice daily raises the citrate level in your urine. Studies have shown that this may prevent calcium stones forming in the kidney.

2. Soothe a sore throat: A mixture of lemon and honey can do wonders to ease the pain of a scratchy, sore throat.

3. Support weight loss: Lemon juice contains pectin which is a soluble fibre that has been shown to aid in weight loss.

4. Start your day right: Instead of grabbing for the coffee or tea first thing, grab a glass of hot water and lemon juice. It will give you a hit of Vitamin C and help get your metabolism going.

5. Stop an itch: Lemon juice has anti-inflammatory and anesthetic properties. Rubbing lemon juice on poison ivy or insect bites can help soothe the skin. 

6. Aids in digestion: Dr. Oz has suggested drinking a mixture of lemon juice and flaxseed to eliminate the waste from your body more rapidly.

7. Anticancer properties: Citrus limioids are compounds that help protect your cells from the types of damage that can lead to cancer formation.

8. Potassium power: Move over bananas! One lemon can contain 80 milligrams of potassium.

9. Bring down a fever: If your temperature spikes, drinking a lemon mixturecould help bring the fever down quickly!

10. Balance pH: Well our instincts may tell us that lemons are acidic, they are actually a really great alkaline food and an easy way to balance your body's pH. What are your favourite ways to enjoy lemons?

Shipping & Delivery
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
