People are saying that the entire lemon should be consumed without wasting the peel. Let alone the obvious health benefits, but it also tastes great. Grab an organic lemon, clean it and then put it in the freezer. Once it is frozen you can shred the whole lemon without peeling. Use it by sprinkling on your salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce etc. This will be a new experience that you haven’t tasted before and you will regret not doing before. The lemon peel alone contains up to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice. Should you ask yourself, why do it at all?! Well, it will be a longer list. Shortly said there are a ton of benefits, or better yet here is a short list of some of them.
- Anti-microbial effect against bacterial infections and fungi
- Effective against internal parasites
- Regulates blood pressure
- Acts as an anti-depressant
- Helps with stress and nervous disorders.
And you can put anticancer properties on this list. According to new studies citrus fruits or the limonoids inside them have proven to be of great help in prevention and treatment of prostate, breast and skin cancer. MCP and the limonoids are basically preventing cancer to grow. There are a lot of claims that this treatment is allegedly 10.000 times stronger than chemotherapy. The good thing is that the taste of lemon is a bit bitter, but it is certainly much better than effects of chemotherapy. Although there is a lot of criticism on this topic, some people claim that the citrus fruits are a proven remedy against the above-mentioned types of cancer.
The source of this information is allegedly one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world. Furthermore they say that after more than 20 experiments since 1970, the extracts destroy the malignant cells in 12 types of cancer including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas and that the compounds of the citrus fruits were 10.000 times more effective than the product Adriamycin, which is a drug normally used in chemotherapy around the world to slow the growth of cancer cells. This interesting thing about this type of therapy is that it only destroys malignant cancer cells and does not affect healthy cells.
After all said, it’s not rocket science and it doesn’t cost a lot. Why not try it.
