The medicinal properties of lemons are known worldwide. For one thing, this citrus fruit is used for treatment of throat infections, indigestion, constipation, dental problems, and fever, internal bleeding, rheumatism, burns, obesity, respiratory disorders, cholera and high blood pressure, while it also benefits hair and skin care. In addition, lemons are extremely beneficial for strengthening your immune system, detoxifying your body, and cleansing your blood.
Lemons owe their amazing health-boosting properties to the abundance of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, A, B1, B6, magnesium, bioflavonoids, pectin, folic acid, phosphorous, calcium, and potassium.
