You’ve probably read about the amazing effects lemons have on our health. However, they are very underestimated and not enough attention is given to them. You can treat numerous conditions and diseases using lemons.
Most people juice the lemons and add the juice to their meals. However, doing this won’t give you the best effects. It has been proven by scientists that actually freezing the lemons is better to get the maximum of their benefits.
Why? Well, juicing the lemon doesn’t let you consume its peel. And the peel has some great compounds in it that can help you boost your immune system, balance the cholesterol levels and lower the risk of developing cancer.
Also, it can provide you with a powerful anti-microbial effect. You can stop fungal and bacterial infections, as well as remove the internal parasites and worms. Also you’ve probably heard that every natural remedy for detoxification contains lemons.
Here are some benefits you can get from lemons according to experts:
– Prevent cancer
– Lower risk of stroke
– Can treat inflammation very well
– Boosts your immunity
– Good for asthma patients
– Can eliminate harmful bacteria
– Can help you treat stress and depression
– Cleanses the kidney and liver
Most people think that the most important part of the lemon is the vitamin C, which is found in the juice. However, scientists have discovered that the peels have great, if not better nutrients inside them.
Cancer patients also use lemons mostly because of their ability to remove the toxic waste from our bodies. There have been numerous studies through the history of modern medicine and doctors have been trying to find out if lemons can actually eliminate abnormal cancer cells. Many studies indicated that this might be true.
It has actually been proven that frozen lemons can eliminate the malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, among which colon, prostate, lung, breast and pancreas cancer. Some studies’ results go so far that they indicate how frozen lemons are actually more effective than chemotherapy in some cases. The best thing about them is that they don’t have the dangerous side effects chemotherapy can cause.
Why do we throw away the lemon peels? They contain 5-10 more vitamins than the lemon juice. Dr. Marily Glenville is an expert on women’s health and nutritionist. In an interview for BBC food, she stated that: “Most of the antioxidants included in fruit are included in the peel or the pith rather than in the pulp.
”She also said, “Smoothie is far better than a juice, since you can consume the whole fruit including the peel, and you will not throw away a single nutrient from the fruit.”
The lemon peel is obviously not tasty to eat, so here is a recipe that you can make to consume it with ease:
– Use apple cider vinegar or baking soda to wash and disinfect the lemons.
– Dry them up using a towel after you’ve rinsed them well.
– Put them in the freezer and leave them there for 1 night.
– Take them out if they are fully frozen and grate them whole.
– Put the lemons into ice cube trays.
Add them to most meals. Not only does this taste good, but it will make you healthier than ever! Put them into your salads, pasta sauces, soups etc. You can mix them with almost anything.
