Even though lemons are not the most popular fruits to be frozen, a mom recounted her routine of freezing lemons, so we made a little research on the subject.
“A new study has shown for the first time how limonoids, natural compounds present in lemons and other citrus fruit, impede both ER+ and ER- breast cancer cell growth. This sheds new light on the importance of citrus fruit for breast cancer prevention and supports past studies which showed fruit consumption may lower breast cancer risk.”
Moreover, in most cases, the entire lemon is used with nothing wasted, not only for its numerous benefits, but for the amazing taste!
This procedure is very simple. Take an organic lemon, wash it, and put it in the freezer. Once it is frozen, grate or shred the whole, unpeeled lemon. You can use it to sprinkle in the same manner as you use salt and pepper, on noodles, soups, cereals, desserts, spaghetti, or any other foods you prefer. It will undoubtedly enhance the taste of your food.
There are a number of reasons to do this. Unfortunately, we usually toss the lemon peel, but it contains 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the actual lemon juice. Not only that, but the peel helps to get rid of toxins in the body.
However, this is just the start. Lemons have an anti-microbial, antibacterial and antifungal power and provide beneficial effects against internal parasites and worms. Moreover, they regulate high blood pressure and combat stress and nervous disorders, as they act as anti-depressants.
Another very important discovery is that it is effective in killing cancer cells, and it was found to be 10,000 stronger than chemotherapy.
Namely, after the 1970s, there were more than 20 laboratory tests which showed that lemon destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas. The compounds of the lemon tree were 10,000 times more effective than the product Adriamycin, which is a drug normally used chemotherapeutically in the world to slow the growth of cancer cells.
Additionally, this type of therapy with lemon extract destroys malignant cancer cells only and does not affect healthy cells. Moreover, it does not deliver the adverse effects of chemotherapy and its taste is pleasant.
However, this fact has been long hidden by medical professionals who offer synthetic, toxic versions for cancer- treatments, since they can bring huge profits.
Some people believe that the lemon is a proven remedy against all types of cancer. Another interesting aspect of the lemon is that it has a remarkable effect on cysts and tumors.
To sum up, the benefits of lemons are numerous and various, so you should consume it regularly in order to preserve your health and fight various health issues. You simply need to take an organic lemon, wash it, freeze it and use it in all your meals.
