Most people are aware that lemons are pretty amazing when it comes to the health benefits that they offer. What most people don’t realize is that the peel is richer in vitamins than lemon juice. In fact, it has five to 10 times the vitamins.
Researchers have made some really startling finds when it comes to the power of lemons. Lemons contain limonoids, which are powerhouse cancer fighters. Research has shown that limonoids can hamper the growth of cancer cells that cause breast cancer. It may also have an effect on cysts and tumors. Lemons also have antifungal effects where it can combat infections caused by fungus and bacteria. Worms and parasites can also be eradicated thanks to lemons. Lemons can have a beneficial effect on lowering blood pressure, and may even have an impact on anti-depression.
Why Freeze Lemons?
Freezing lemons is the perfect way to ensure that you will eat the entire lemon rather than wasting the most important part: the peel. Putting your lemon in the freezer will allow you to shred it. To do this, you’ll just need to follow these easy instructions. Start by washing an organic lemon. Put the whole clean lemon in the freezer for several hours until it’s completely frozen. Then, grate the lemon down into shavings. You’ll want to try to remove the seeds as much as possible during this process.
Enjoy the Taste and Benefits
Then, you’ll be able to sprinkle these healthy shavings on a wide variety of foods. From your morning yogurt to your ice cream at the end of the day. The pleasant taste makes this an easy addition to your day, but if you have family members that aren’t into lemons, you can always bake these shavings into food or hide it in things like pasta sauce.
Stop wasting the best part of the lemon by throwing away the peel. Your body will thank you for all of these great benefits.
