Amazing benefits of lemons and lemon juice

Lemons in a tree

Sometimes sour, sometimes sweet, citrus fruits are known for their specific taste, but behind it lies something quite interesting. Namely, these fruits are true lifesavers. They have incredibly high amounts of vitamins, minerals, fibers, and other chemicals which boost our health and immune system.

There are plenty of ways one can use a lemon or an orange. We squeeze, peel, slice, and chop them up all the time. However, not many people are aware of just how many positive sides these colorful and delicious fruits have. That especially stands for lemons and we shall focus on them in this article.

The reasons why you should eat or drink lemons are plentiful. Next to oranges and paprika, they are one of the richest fruits when it comes to vitamin C. Everyone knows just how important vitamin C is in having a strong immune system. Lemons have staggering amounts of potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, and copper. Being a fruit means they also contain a lot of fiber, crucial for maintaining your body weight. Still not convinced? Just you wait.

Let’s begin with one spiritual benefit not many are aware of. Lemon juice can help promote your mental health!

When consumed, lemons can help you out by releasing you from anxiety. Lemons have negatively charged ions and thus provide balance in an anxious body full of positively charged ions. Drink some lemon tea or make a glass of lemon juice if you’re coping with anxiety problems.

Having a lemon tea with some ginger and honey will keep you not only healthy, but slim too.

Besides anxiety, lemons also help reduce inflammation of different sorts. Inflammations prosper in acidic-based environments. Once metabolized, lemons make your body alkaline even though they taste acidic. When that happens, you should feel the inflammations on your gums or joints slowly wearing off. The same goes for other types of inflammations.

The next reason you should consider having lemons as your remedy is detox. Lemons can help detox and cleanse your body of excess unwanted material. Lemon intake causes your liver to do its thing by stimulating gastric juices. These can then aid in the digestion process. Lemons thus stimulate this natural process occurring in the body.

Lemon juice and especially lemon water can severely help your kidneys out. When citrate is lacking in your body, calcium starts to buildup and that may result in kidney stone forming. Having a stone in your kidney is one of the most painful things one can endure. Be smart and prevent that from happening. To avoid a kidney stone all you need to do is have a glass of water with lemon juice every day. Preferably in the morning on an empty stomach.

Last but not least, lemons are widely used in skincare. Using them as an ingredient in a skin or peel mask is something people do for a long time now. They can help with healing acne, blackheads, blemishes, and oily skin. Moreover, some people use lemons in order to promote their hair color, strengthen nails and even whiten their teeth.
