Lemons are ones of the most beneficial fruits on the planet, and due to their countless health benefits and unique flavor and scent, they are added to various recipes
Lemons are excellent for detoxification of the body, but when juiced, the lemon loses many of its nutrients and a great part of the medicinal potential
These are the health benefits of this miraculous fruit:
- Prevention of asthma
- Fighting inflammation
- Detoxification of the kidneys and the liver
- Boosting the immune system
- Regulation of high blood pressure
- Elimination of harmful bacteria
- Treating depression and stress
- Fighting cancer
The lemon juice is extremely high in vitamin C, while its rind is effective in eliminating toxins from the body. Studies have shown that the lemon peel actually contains 5 to 10 times more vitamins.
What’s best about this all is that lemons, unlike chemotherapy, target only the cancerous cells, and do not affect the healthy ones.
According to Dr. Marilyn Glenville, a nutritionist, and expert on women’s health, the peels from various fruits can boost the immune system and support overall health. She also claims that smoothies are far healthier than juices, as they also contain other parts of the fruit, including the peel.
Lemon smoothies have a bitter taste, so the following option, to freeze them, is the one we strongly advise. Therefore, here is how to freeze lemons:
Use apple cider vinegar to wash and disinfect the lemons. Then, rinse them and leave them to dry. Next, leave them to freeze until the next morning, and then grate the entire fruit, along with the peel, pulp, and seeds.
The frozen lemons can be added to various dishes, smoothies, tea, baked goods, desserts, and soups.
