One of the healthiest fruits in the world are lemons, which are used in numerous recipes, because of their health benefits as well as their scent and flavor.
Lemons are beneficial for the detoxification of the human body. However, if we consume it juiced, we do not get all the healthy nutrients that the lemon has. Frozen lemons are the most beneficial. Moreover, lemon peel boosts up the immune system, and is loaded with numerous health benefits, such as: preventing cancer, regulating the cholesterol levels, treating infection and eliminating bacteria or parasites.
These are some of the healthy benefits of lemons:
• Prevent asthma
• Strengthen the immune system
• Fight inflammation
• Detoxificate the liver and the kidney
• Regulate the high blood pressure
• Prevent cancer
• Kill bacteria and parasites
• Treat anxiety and depression
Lemon juice is loaded with Vitamin C. Also, it is effective in the detoxification of the body. According to the recent studies, the lemon peel has got 5 – 10 times more vitamins than the fruit itself. Medical experts examined the impact of lemon on the treatment of cancer years ago.
They found out that lemons destroy cancer cells in some types of cancer, such as: colon cancer, lung and breast cancer. What is more important is that lemons destroy only the malignant cells and do not affect the healthy cells, which is not the case with the chemotherapy.
Dr. Marilyn Grenville, a medical expert and nutritionist, claims that the peel from many different fruits can strengthen the immune system and the overall health. According to Dr. Grenville, smoothies are more beneficial than the juices, because they contain the peel.
However, lemon smoothie has a bitter taste, so the best way is to freeze the lemons. Before freezing them, you should disinfect the lemons with apple cedar vinegar. After that, rinse and leave the lemons to dry thoroughly. Then, freeze them. When they freeze, grate the lemons with the seeds, the peel and the pulp. You can add frozen lemons in your tea, smoothies, dishes, soups, desserts, etc. Enjoy!
