lemon-zest-is-key-to-healthy-lemon-water

Lemon is perhaps one of the most versatile fruits known today, however, you are actually missing out on a lot by throwing lemon peels away. Just like the juice, lemon peels are useful for numerous ways. They can help save you some money as well as make it easier for you to do certain tasks. Lemon peel can be just as effective as it has some enzymes that help one live a healthier life.

Here are some amazing uses of lemon peel you probably never knew about.

Skin toner: After a hard day outdoors, grab some lemon peels and gently rub them on your face, carefully squeezing the peel so that a bit of juice will come out. This not only tones the skin, it also helps brighten the surface and clean the pores. Wash out with warm water afterwards and enjoy the new smoothness of your face.

Clumpy rice: To keep rice from sticking, add a spoonful of lemon juice to the water while the rice is cooking. Simply fluff with a fork when it’s done.

Improves bone health: In order to develop strong, healthy bones, one needs to ingest a good quantity of calcium and lemon peel contains this in addition to vitamin C because of this, eating lemon peel has shown to help prevent osteoarthritis, inflammatory polyarthritis, bone fractures, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.

Improves oral health: A deficiency in vitamin C can lead to several gum and dental problems such as gingivitis, bleeding gums and scurvy. Because lemon peel is rich in citric acid and vitamin C, it is able to prevent these and other related gum and dental problems.

Reduces weight: One of the elements in lemon peel is pectin which has been shown to help in weight loss. This substance has some properties that will convert it into a jelly which prevents your body from absorbing excessive quantities of sugar, helping maintain your weight.

Removes age spots: Lemon has a whitening effect, which is why it’s included in many skin care products today. Rub the peel on the surface of your skin where age spots and uneven skin tone is apparent. Do this on a daily basis and pretty soon, your skin should look perfectly even.

Deodorize the garbage disposal: Use lemon peels to deodorize the garbage disposal (and make your kitchen smell awesome at the same time). It is a great way to finally dispose of spent lemon peels after you have used them for any of these applications.

Anti- dandruff: Rub lemon peel all over your scalp, making sure that it reaches problematic areas where dandruff typically comes out. Do this repeatedly for several days or even weeks until the problem is resolved.

Deodorizer: Lemon peels are also a great way to remove bad smells in your dishwasher and fridge. Just add a few of the peels inside and do what you usually do. Adding the lemon not only removes the smell but replaces it with a clean and fresh scent. This also works for your garbage disposal, garbage can, and anywhere else where a stink happens to be pervasive.

Boost immunity and digestion: Lemon peel contains essential nutrients including vitamin C which allow the body to resist infections as well as the subsequent ailments. Because of this, eating lemon peel is considered a good method for treating sore throat, flu, cold and similar infections. It can also help boost healthy digestion due to its dietary fiber that encourages healthy bowel movements.

Whitens and strengthens the nails: Whiten and strengthen your fingernails by rubbing them with lemon peel every night before you sleep.citroen

Freshens your fridge: Place a lemon peel inside your fridge to absorb smells and bring a bright citrus scent, this works because lemon peel has amazing absorption power.

Decrease cholesterol: Eating lemon peel can help decrease the body’s cholesterol level which in turn can promote better heart health. In addition, the potassium found in the peel can help maintain blood pressure levels. The peels are able to lower LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) because of the polyphenol flavonoids. In addition, the vitamins C and P help clear the blood vessels and by doing so reduce the risk of developing certain conditions such as diabetic heart disease, heart disease and high blood pressure.
