The Health Benefits of Lemon Juice

Written and Published by BMT Foods, July 30, 2020

Lemons are packed with vitamin C, folate, and essential trace elements such as copper, potassium, and magnesium that are beneficial to the optimal health of the body. Lemon juice can help boost the immune system, aid digestion, and boost liver function, as well as provide other health benefits.

It’s great for skin health.

The Vitamin C in lemons contains antioxidants that help combat the free radicals responsible for premature aging of the skin. Lemon juice also stimulates the natural production of collagen in the body, to help plump out wrinkles and fine lines and keep the skin more elastic and therefore younger looking.

It supports the immune system.

Lemon juice’s vitamin profile promotes the production of white blood cells, which in turn help to boost the body’s natural immunity. It also helps prevent colds and infections, as well as helping the body to recover from oxidative stress resulting from damage by free radicals.

It’s a natural appetite suppressant.

Lemons contain pectin, which, along with water, works to suppress the appetite. Lemon juice also helps to keep the body hydrated, boosting metabolism, which in turn burns more calories to help with healthy weight management.

It can help boost your mood.

Products with lemon juice are an excellent alternative to coffee for increasing your energy levels, as they generally do not contain caffeine. Natural caffeine levels in the blood can fluctuate and cause fatigue and lethargy. Lemon juice contains negatively charged ions which can help boost your energy and improve your mood.

It helps with digestion.

The pectin present in lemons is a powerful antibacterial agent that helps combat problems in the large intestine which can result in indigestion. Lemon juice also helps balance the oxygen and calcium levels in the liver, potentially treating heartburn naturally. As if that wasn’t enough digestive help, lemon juice also encourages the natural production of bile and other essential digestive enzymes.

It can help aid mobility, stamina and joint health.

Lemon juice helps replenish the body salts that are lost due to perspiration as a result of physically demanding jobs or strenuous exercise. If you suffer from joint pain as a result of arthritis or excessive uric acid, lemon juice may help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.

It’s good for the head, too.

The potassium in lemons feeds nerves and brain cells, helping to improve both memory and motor coordination. As a bonus, lemon juice also has positive effects on eye health, so drinking lemon juice is good for your head!
