When consumed in the morning, they have a tremendous detoxifying effect in your body, flushing out toxins in your liver and gut. An amazing source of vitamin c, it really boosts your immune system.
It also balances your ph levels, which are necessary when you are suffering from weight gain, and hydrates your lymph system which is important for those who feel tired and drained.
