5 Surprising health benefits of lemon juice

1 |

Lemons are one of the most versatile and nutritious fruits available today. In the past, when there was no refrigeration, lemons were used as a very effective preservative. At that time, it was also recognized that the lack of citrus fruits such as lemons, could lead to certain medical problems like scurvy. These fruits as it turns out, provided a number of important vitamins and minerals for the body. Regular consumption of lemon juice, for instance, can help the human body stay healthy and fight off pernicious diseases.


Because lemons have been around for so long and many people have studied their nutritional value, we know a lot about this fruit. Most people are aware that lemon juice is an excellent source of vitamin C and B, riboflavin and carbohydrates. They probably also know that lemon juice is good for colds, helps skin to heal and stay healthy, helps maintain healthy gums, helps heal burns, and is an effective natural antiseptic.

There are, however, some other lesser known health benefits of lemon juice which the public should be aware of. These health benefits may not have been scientifically established but, nevertheless, there exists for each a wealth of ever-growing anecdotal evidence:

1. Relief of Digestive Problems

Because of its high acidity, some people may be surprised to find that lemon juice might be a remedy against gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). In fact, lemon juice can relieve nausea, indigestion, belching, bloating, constipation and hiccups as well as heartburn; it can also help the body digest foods better by helping the liver produce more bile.
