Lemon Nutrition

Lemon Nutrition High in vitamin C, lemon nutrition is known for its body cleansing properties.

  • Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C which helps to protect cells and tissues from free radical damage, therefore helping to prevent cancer. Vitamin C also aids in the absorption of dietary iron.

  • Lemon nutrition contains limonoids which have been shown to help fight cancers of the mouth, skin, lung, breast, stomach and colon.

  • Regular consumption of lemon juice in the morning (preferably diluted in hot/warm water) stimulates the capacity of liver and helps in digestion.

  • Lemon is also a diuretic and can help treat problems associated with urinary tract infections.

  • Lemon nutrition is also a good source of fibre which supports bowel regularity, thereby helping to prevent cancer. Fibre also help to maintain normal cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

  • Lemons are a good fruit source of dietary iron which helps your body to produce energy, keeps the immune system healthy and enhances oxygen distribution throughout the body.

  • Lemons are also a good fruit source of dietary copper which help the body to utilise iron, helps to reduce damage caused by free radicals and keeps the thyroid gland fuctioning normally. Iron also helps the body to produce melanin.

  • One lemon contains around 22 calories.
