Is Lemon / Water / Juice Good For You?


Health Benefits of Lemons

The citric acid in lemons aids in digestion and helps to dissolve kidney stones, while the ascorbic acid is a natural antioxidant that prevents the sailor’s dread – scurvy. Other antioxidants in lemons include ß-carotenes, beta-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, lutein, and vitamin A, which promotes healthy mucus membranes, skin, and vision. Pantothenic acid and folates, provided by lemons, are compounds needed by the body, but can only be derived from sources outside the body.

Studies on Lemons

While the topic seems somewhat controversial, plenty of clinical studies indicate that lemons may have disease-preventing capabilities. Tests both in labs and on patients showed lemons as a potentially beneficial treatment for cancer, including breast cancer in patients undergoing chemotherapy.1 In a study in Saudi Arabia, lemon in extract form also showed promise as a treatment for breast cancer patients.2
