We all know the health benefits of lemon and the amazing uses it offers. But, I am sure not many would know that this citrus fruit can actually prevent deadly diseases like cancer.
Lemons can actually help you in the prevention of cancer and obesity, it is full of antioxidants such as limonoids that destroys and removes toxic waste from the body. It includes the destroying of 12 different cancers like cancers of the colon, breast, prostate, lungs and pancreas.
Dr. Marlyn Glenville, a nutritionist and expert on women’s health explained:
“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.”
Interestingly, the power of the lemon is increased when it is frozen. They are bitter and hard to consume in its natural form, but when frozen and then added to food and drinks, the bitterness dissipates. The freezing of lemons will also help in storing them for longer durations.
Make sure you wash it before freezing them, you can also slice them and place them in ice cubes for smaller servings.
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.
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.
