Lemon Fruit

Lemon is a fruit that contains flavonoids, which are composites that contain antioxidant and cancer fighting properties.

 

It helps to prevent diabetes, constipation, high blood pressure, fever, indigestion and many other problems, as well as improving the skin, hair, and teeth.

 

People use lemons to make lemonade by mixing lemon juice and water. Many people also use lemon as a washing agent, because of its ability to remove stains.

 

The scent of lemon can also repel mosquitoes, while drinking lemon juice with olive oil helps to get rid of gall stones.

 

Lemon juice is also frequently used in dental care. If fresh lemon juice is applied on the area of a toothache, it can assist in getting rid of the pain.

 

Lemon can be used in the regular cleansing of your teeth. Keep your eye out for a toothpaste containing lemon as one of the ingredients, or add a drop of lemon juice onto your normal toothpaste.

 

Lemons increase peristalsis in the bowels, helping to create a bowel movement thus eliminating waste and helping with regularity.

 

Add the juice of one lemon to warm water and drink first thing in the morning.

 

The lemon peel contains the potent phytonutrient tangeretin, which has been proven to be effective for brain disorders like Parkinson’s disease.

 

Lemons contain 22 anti-cancer compounds, including naturally occurring limonene; oil which slows or halts the growth of cancer tumours in animals and flavonol glycosides which stop cell division in cancer cells.

 

Lemons are small, spreading, evergreen trees, growing up to 10-12 feet in most cultivated plantations.

 

They flourish well in temperate and tropical environments, whereas, cold and frosty conditions would affect their growth adversely.

 

Citrus fruits, as such, have long been valued for their wholesome nutritious and antioxidant properties.

 

It is scientifically established fact that citrus fruits, especially lemons and oranges, by virtue of their richness in vitamins and minerals, have many proven health benefits.
