Lemons contain 22 anti-cancer compounds and reduce risk of cancer by 50 percent

Lemon peels can boost the immune system, lower cholesterol levels, and even help to prevent cancer.  Lemon peels are also antimicrobial, which means that they protect against bacterial and fungal infections. Many studies have confirmed that lemons have 22 anti-cancer compounds which may have an even bigger effect than chemotherapy. For instance, the Modified citrus pectin which comes from the pulp and rids of lemons (and other citrus fruits also) has the ability to prevent the spread of prostate, breast and skin cancer to other organs. Lemons also contain Limonoids, which are phytochemicals that can slow down the growth of the cancerous cell. Some studies even suggest that limonoids can even kill the cancerous cells.

According to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) of Australia, citrus fruits can reduce the risk of stomach, mouth, larynx, and pharynx cancer by an amazing 50%.

In addition to their cancer-fighting properties, lemons also help the digestion and detoxification.  They help the liver to produce bile, which allows the food to keep moving through the body and gastrointestinal tract.

Lemons are also rich in vitamin C, and the high content of antioxidants found in vitamin C helps the body to fight the damage caused by free radicals. This is very important because it heals the whole body and rejuvenates the skin.

This amazing citrus fruit can also help you lose weight due to its large amount of pectin, which is a type of fiber that helps you stay full longer. Another benefit of lemons is their ability to boost energy levels which results in lower stress levels and mood improvements.
