Health benefit – the humble Lemon


☛ Is lemon peel, the cheapest investment in your health?
What we’ve been wasting:
❥It gives you more vitamins – Lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself.
To name a few: Vitamin C, Vitamin A, beta carotene, folate, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
❥ It helps in fighting cancer – Lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.
This means that lemon peels help rid the body of carcinogenic elements.
Lemon peels consists of components known as salvestrol Q40 and limonene, which are known to fight against cancerous cells in the body.
Also, the flavonoids present in the peel are known to be effective when it comes to curbing the division of cancerous cells
Therefore, consumption of lemon peel is known to be a preventive measure against development of various types of cancers including breast cancer, colon cancer, and skin cancer.
A study revealed that consumption of hot tea with lemon peel has proved to be beneficial in preventing the development of cancer cells.
❥ It improves bone health – Lemon peels have lots of calcium and Vitamin C. Consuming lemon peels will help prevent osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory polyarthritis, and other bone conditions.
❥ It decreases cholesterol levels – Digesting lemon peels will help lower the LDL cholesterol, or the bad cholesterol through its polyphenol flavonoids.
Vitamin C and vitamin P help in clearing the blood vessels, preventing or minimizing the risks of developing the interrelated conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetic heart disease. Dave Sommers Mind,Body,Green
Living  a healthy life is a matter of combining nature’s gifts of fruits and vegetables. Many of them have hidden benefits which we ,in the modern world, have long forgotten and it is only in the last few years, that their healing and nutrition properties have been “rediscovered”.
Another of nature’s elements that benefit our health is:

“Arabinogalactan is a starch-like chemical that is found in many plants, but it is found in highest concentrations in Larch trees.

Larch arabinogalactan is used for medicine.

Most of the larch arabinogalactan you will find in stores is produced from Western Larch (Larch occidentalis). However, larch arabinogalactan can also be produced by other larch tree species.

Larch arabinogalactan is used for infections, including the common cold, flu, H1N1 (swine) flu, ear infections in children, and HIV/AIDS.

It is also used to treat liver cancer, as well as a brain condition caused by liver damage (hepatic encephalopathy).

Some people use it to provide dietary fiber, lower cholesterol, and to boost the immune system.

In foods, larch arabinogalactan is used as a stabilizer, binder, and sweetener.

How does it work?

  • Larch arabinogalactan is a fiber that ferments in the intestine.

  •  It might increase intestinal bacteria, such as Lactobacillus, and have other effects that could be beneficial to digestive tract health.

  • There is also information that suggests larch arabinogalactan might boost the immune system and help prevent cancer cells in the liver from growing.”  WebMD : WebMD does not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment
