When life gives you lemons: Fight Cancer, Boost Immunity, Improve Digestion and More.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade and many other wonderful dishes.  But wait! Use the whole lemon.  Yes ! The peel also.  The peel contains 5 to 10 times more of the vitamins and nutrients than just the lemon flesh and juice.

When most people think of lemons, they think of them as a seasoning to add to dishes or beverages, to enhance flavor.  We never really think of consuming the whole lemon.,  Also, we usually just think of lemons as being high in vitamin C.  Well, that is true.  In fact, lemons were once very valuable and during the California Gold Rush, people were paying up to $1 per lemon in hopes of preventing scurvy.  Wow! $1 per lemon in 1849.  Imagine what they would cost today.

The Super healing powers of Lemons

Recent research is once again putting lemon in the lime-light, or should i say, the lemon-light.  Lemons have been shown to kill 12 different types of cancer cells and to be 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

Consuming the entire lemon offers quite a nutrient punch.  They are a good source of carotenoids and flavonoids.  Lemons also offer anti microbial properties effective against bacterial infections, fungi and internal parasites and worms.  Thought to aid in lowering blood pressure, serve as an antidepressant, combat stres and nervous disorders, and aid in digestion and toxin elimination, lemons are quite the powerhouse against ailments.

Make sure you are getting all you can from your lemons.  Freeze the entire lemon, peel and all.  Once frozen, using a grater, add bits of lemon(yes, the entire lemon) to all your dishes.  It will enhance the flavor, aid in digestion and could result in a longer, healthier life.

Be Well.. and Be You…
