Delicious
(NaturalNews) After the excesses of the holiday season, the unassuming lemon can offer much needed relief for an overtaxed body. Jammed packed with nutrients, this upbeat fruit is a cost-effective way to trim down, detoxify and boost vitality. Lemons also conceal a little known health secret - that is, by enjoying the entire fruit (juice, rind, pith and seeds), we can strongly discourage cancer, bone loss, hypertension and more.

Inexpensive gateway to health

Many are familiar with the famous lemon detox diet and have reaped the benefits of the protocol, such as glowing skin, better digestion and a slimmer body. However, few are aware that lemons are also an exceptionally potent treatment for thrush, parasites and calcium stones in the urinary tract.

A study in the International Journal of Phytotherapy and Phytopharmacology found lemon juice was more effective in healing oral thrush in HIV patients than the standard remedy of gentian violet. And researchers at Bakirkoy Research and Training Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey discovered lemons are a viable alternative to potassium citrate in the treatment of urinary calcium stones. Traditionally, lemon peel oil has been used to discourage intestinal parasites, while the vitamin C-rich juice and rind help to increase bone mineral density.

What's more, Dr. Chakravarty, chief science officer and member of the Hope4Cancer executive team, notes that lemons:

Regulate blood pressure
Treat acne
Alleviate depression, stress and anxiety
Possess antibacterial and antiviral properties

Don't trash the peel

Before tossing the lemon peel once the juice has been extracted, consider this: the rind contains up to 10 times the vitamins and bioactive compounds of the juice itself. The peel also impedes tumor proliferation according to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Likewise, research in the journal of Nutrition and Cancer found a striking reduction of squamous cell carcinoma in those who ingested citrus peel, compared to participants who only consumed the juice. The team believes these findings are due to the concentration of d-limonene oil in citrus fruit rinds - a known inhibitor of breast, lung and colon cancers.
