I use lemons for almost everything. And I’m familiar with the many benefits of drinking lemon water first thing in the morning. But this benefit of lemon peel is a new one to me. The article is on complete-health-and-happiness.com, shows two ways of using lemon peel in a topical application. Definitely sounds worth a try!
Lemons are filled with vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C, A, B1, B6, magnesium, bioflavonoids, pectin, folic acid, phosphorous, calcium, and potassium. They help to protect against many diseases and conditions, and have many positive effects on the intestines, stomach, liver, and the overall immune system.
Lemon juice and peels have a nice sour, acidic taste, lemons actually function as a buffer in the body and can reduce hyperactivity in the stomach. Lemon peels have a nice antiseptic effect, and the leaves are good fever reducers.
What you didn’t know is that your favorite citrus fruit can help with joint pain! The fragrant volatile essential oils in the lemon peel help to relax blood vessels and they produce an anti-inflammatory effect, making them useful for joint and nerve pain.
