Lemons are one of the most nutritious and beneficial foods that a person can consume. With one simple change to the way you consume your lemons, you can prevent all kinds of health conditions and ailments.
- “A new study has shown for the first time how limonoids, natural compounds present in lemons and other citrus fruit, impede both ER+ and ER- breast cancer cell growth. This sheds new light on the importance of citrus fruit for breast cancer prevention and supports past studies which showed fruit consumption may lower breast cancer risk.”
Lemons have a unique compound known as limonoids, which efficiently prevent the proliferation of cancer cells, especially in the case of breast cancer. There have been many studies that have shown the strong positive effects on the entire body and therefore, it is advised to consume them regularly.
The part of the lemon that most people throw away, the peel, is the part with the richest source of vitamins and nutrients. The peel has anti-carcinogenic properties and helps to detoxify the body and protect it from bacteria, fungi, parasites and worms.
How to Freeze Your Lemons
Many people take the entire lemon, wash it, and put it in a freezer safe bag. But what I like to do is; juice the lemons and cut up the peel, pour the juice into an ice cube tray and place the pieces of peel into the tray holes. When you are ready to use in your favorite juices or smoothies simply pop them out and blend.
