There is no doubt that lemons are one of the most beneficial fruits known to us, thanks to their large number of unique properties that offer a huge variety of health benefits, a unique flavor, scent, which make an excellent addition to many recipes.
Now, one thing that lemons are especially good for is detoxification. When juiced, they lose many of its nutrients and a large part of their medicinal potential. However, when they are frozen over and grated all-together along with the peel, they keep all of their properties which make them so powerful.
Since the lemon peel contains a bigger part of the beneficial properties, lemons frozen along with their peel and then grated and consumed offer health benefits such as regulating cholesterol, treating bacterial infections, preventing cancer, destroying worms and so much more.
Other health benefits of this miraculous fruit are:
- Preventing asthma
- Fights inflammation
- Detoxifies the liver and kidneys
- Boosts the immune system
- Regulates high blood pressure
- Fights cancer
- Treats stress and depression
- Eliminates harmful bacteria
Lemon juice is also loaded with large doses of vitamin C, and in addition to this, its rind is highly effective when it comes to eliminating toxins from the body. According to studies, lemon peel contains 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the fruit itself.
Another thing about lemons which baffled scientists not long ago when they conducted their studies, was the fact that unlike chemotherapy, lemons only affected cancerous cells during the test treatment for cancer, and leave the healthy cells aside.
Therefore freeze lemons together, and feel free to add them to various dishes, smoothies, teas, baked goods, soups and deserts!
