Have you ever wondered why so many people are crazy about lemon water? Well, there are amazing nutrition, health, and beauty benefits of lemons. Let’s discuss the health and beauty benefits of lemons in your water and enhance the flavor of food. Ready for a few lemon nutrition facts?

Nutrition Benefits of Lemon

Nutrition Benefits of Lemon

Here are some nutrition benefits worth noting about how great lemons are for your body and aging skin.

GREAT SOURCE OF VITAMIN C

Lemons, this sour fruit is packed with collagen-building vitamin C and high in immune-boosting bioflavonoids.

Bioflavonoids boost lymph flow and strengthen blood vessels, which can be beneficial in preventing varicose veins. Other bioflavonoid rich foods include: oranges, grapefruit, grapes, garlic, and limes.

NATURAL SKIN TREATMENT

You can try making a quick natural treatment for varicose veins right at home. However, remember that this will only temporarily diminish the appearance of the skin, because there is no “cure” for varicose veins.

Doctors can offer laser treatment or sclerotherapy to help with the appearance of the spider or varicose veins. Try this easy at home beauty treatment made with fresh lemons.

EXCELLENT TO BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

Lemons contain naringenin, which is a compound that can help reduce inflammation within the body. As I mentioned earlier, lemons also contain a high amount of vitamin C, and this vitamin has been shown to help boost our immune system.

LEMONS BOOST SLUGGISH DIGESTION

Drinking hot water with lemon can protect the liver. Lemons also have a diuretic and laxative effect.

If you’re suffering from sluggish digestion, try a simple trick of hot water, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and a dash of cayenne pepper to help increase peristalsis, which are the wave like contractions to move your food through the digestive tract.

LEMONS BRIGHTEN DULL SKIN

A wonderful beauty benefit of lemons is by brightening up dull looking skin. They also have astringent and antiseptic properties, which can help brighten up dull skin. Lemons have a natural bleaching property.

If you notice your skin is looking a bit dull, try mixing a bit of lemon juice with soothing oatmeal, and apply for 20 minutes, rinse skin thoroughly. Reveal your glowing skin.

Let’s break down the nutrition facts of a lemon based on key nutrients that they provide for the body.
