Lemons are a well-known fruit that people use in small quantities to add flavor to food. Lemons give flavor to baked goods, sauces, salad dressing, marinades, drinks, and they are also a good source of vitamin C.One 58 gram (g) lemon can provide over 30 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C.
One 2014 study found that women in Japan who walked regularly and consumed lemon every day had lower blood pressure than those who did not. More research is needed to identify the role of lemon in this improvement and to discover whether consuming lemon can help reduce blood pressure since walking daily can also lower blood pressure.
2) Boosting the immune system
Foods that are high in vitamin C and other antioxidants may help to strengthen the immune system against the germs that cause the common cold and the flu. One review found that, while vitamin C supplements do not appear the reduce the incidence of colds in a population, they may help reduce the length of time a cold lasts. Vitamin C may also help boost immunity in people who are undergoing extreme physical activity.
Squeezing a whole lemon into a glass of hot water with a large spoonful of honey makes a soothing drink for someone with a cough or cold.
3) Prevent kidney stones
Kidney stones are small lumps that form when waste products crystallize and build up in your kidneys. They are quite common, and people who get them often get them repeatedly. Just a 1/2-cup (4 ounces or 125 ml) of lemon juice per day may provide enough citric acid to help prevent stone formation in people who have already had them.
