Lemons are extremely healthy for consumption and we’re all very well aware of that. They’re an excellent addition to food, soups, desserts, but also as juices.
Consuming lemons every day is a really healthy habit. The lemon belongs to the group of the most cultivated fruits in the world. It is abundant in vitamins and minerals like C, A, B1, B6, magnesium, bioflavonoids, folic acid, pectin, phosphorus, potassium, calcium etc.
All of them combined together protect you from numerous illnesses. Regular eating or drinking lemons and juices will also have good impact on your stomach, liver, intestines and immunity.
Pregnant women can also benefit from lemons. Drinking lemon juice diluted with some water will help them remove their morning sickness and also ease up the vomiting urges. The smell and taste of the lemon and its effect on the stomach removes nausea.
The peel of the lemon is also a beneficial part. It’s antiseptic and lemon tree leaves are used for removing fever symptoms.
An also amazing fact is that lemon helps in removing joint pain!
You probably didn’t know this, but lemon peel is full of rich essential oils that soothe your blood vessels and have anti-inflammatory properties which are excellent for making the nerve pain neutral.
Here are the 2 best ways of using lemons for this purpose:
- Grate some rind, but be careful because the yellow layer is what you need, not the white one underneath. Apply this peel on a sore and put a bandage over it. Leave it to stay like that for 2 hours and then remove it.
- Take 2 lemons and peel them. Then, put them in a glass jar. Put some olive oil over them and close tightly. This should stay like that for 2 weeks. After this period of time, take a gauze, dip it in the oil and secure with bandage over your feet. Leave it to act overnight.
