There’s no question lemon is one of the healthiest fruits on the planet. This citrus fruit is extremely beneficial for treatment of numerous health issues including throat infections, indigestion, constipation, dental problems, and fever, internal bleeding, rheumatism, burns, obesity, respiratory disorders, and high blood pressure. It can also be used externally to improve skin and hair quality.
The greatest benefit lemons provide is immune system boost and blood cleansing.
Lemons are a real storehouse of nutrients – vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, A, B1, B6, magnesium, bioflavonoids, pectin, folic acid, phosphorous, calcium, and potassium.
Although people generally think that the health benefits of lemons come from the flesh of the fruit, it’s actually the peel that’s more health beneficial. Lemon peel is a great antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent, which effectively relieves joint pain. It is the sweet-scented volatile essential oils found in the lemon peel that relax blood vessels and provide an anti-inflammatory effect, which makes them extremely efficient in easing joint and nerve pain.
