Lemons are known for a host of health benefits, ranging from providing the body with vitamin C to boosting the immune system to normalizing cholesterol levels. Perhaps no other citrus fruit is as common as it is beneficial to our bodies. Whether it’s the juice you consume or the peel, you know you’re doing your body a favor by ingesting some lemons.
But did you know that even terrible diseases like cancer and obesity can be prevented by lemons? Lemon peels are packed wtih antioxidants such as limonoids that destroy and remove toxic waste from the body. This includes the destroying cancer cells from 12 different cancers like cancers of the colon, breast, prostate, lungs, and pancreas. With that in mind, the natural lemony goodness sure looks like a better alternative to chemotherapy!
Lemons boost the body and cleanses it too!
Need proof? Dr. Marlyn Glenville, a nutritionist and expert on women’s health explains the benefits of fruit peels:
Most of the antioxidants included in fruit are included in the peel or the pith rather than in the pulp. Smoothie is far better than a juice, since you can consume the whole fruit including the peel, and you will not throw away a single nutrient from the fruit.
However, did you know that the power of the lemon can be amplified when they’re frozen?
Lemons are known to be bitter and hard to consume as they are, but when they’re frozen and then added to food and drinks, the bitterness dissipates. In addition, freezing lemons allows you to store them for longer, so no fruit is wasted!
Frozen lemons give you the same nutrient boost and then some!
To freeze lemons, wash them first. We suggest using organic apple cider vinegar or baking soda to eliminate traces of pesticides. Next, pat them dry and leave them in the freezer overnight. You can also slice the lemons and place them in ice cube trays for smaller servings.
Once frozen, you’ll notice that they’re easier and cleaner to work with. Add them to soups, juices, stews and marinades to give your food a lemony kick with a ton of health benefits.
