Health benefits of lemons

This yellow citrus fruit has several amazing health-promoting properties. Here are some for you to note:

  • The high content of vitamin C helps to ease breathing problems such as asthma, and bronchial spasms caused by inflammation.
  • Lemons, because of the high anti-bacterial properties, are excellent for fighting problems related to throat infections.
  • Lemon juice is also a diuretic and can help treat arthritis and rheumatism by flushing out toxins and acid waste from the body.
  • The immune system is fortified by the vitamin C content in lemons. It works as an antioxidant and helps to combat seasonal and other allergens which cause breathing problems that can lead to lung infections.
  • Fresh lemon juice with a glass of warm water in the morning to start the day, is a very good way to detoxify the liver, cleanse the kidneys, and settle the digestive system.
  • Studies have shown that lemon juice helps to keep you regular, and prevent constipation which can clog up the bowel and colon with poorly-digested food.
