Lemon juice has a high content of vitamin C and some vitamin B complex .

The best lemon is the one having thin skin. If warmed slightly before extracting juice, 3 times more juice can be extracted.

Health Benefits of Lemons

Juice of ripe lemons because of its sour taste improves the digestive system. It is light and easily digestible. It relieves stomach related problems and since it is cold by nature, it reduces heat in the body and this is why lemon juice with water is given in summer. It helps in relieving constipation and the juice is applied externally for various skin related problems.

Lemon juice is good not only in treating wounds due to piles, and boils but expels intestinal worms as well. It is a potent help to treat Diabetes,Influenza and Coryza.

Lemon juice is extremely beneficial in combating Joint pains and Gout. Uric acid is constantly formed in the body and expelled through urine. It is a type of poison and the body needs to maintain a low level of uric acid.

Rajan you are a homeopathic healer. What is your tolerance for dumb questions? Would lime work as well? I am assuming it would and we have them all over the placed around here. I really had an ah ha moment when you pointed out that lemons are cool. I always think of everything being the same temperature. They may be by the thermometer, but not by nature . . . like colors. They can affect your mood by being warm or cool and they can change by being place next to each other.

William limes are somewhat sweeter than lemons.Also, lemons contain almost double the amount of vitamin C than the limes. You have the facts there.

Still, a bird in hand (lime) is better than having no bird (lemon) at all.

Thanks for the comments.

Dr. Rajan! Help! I am an American and have trouble drinking anything that doesn't taste like Cola. The lemons I got were from the next continent down (thank God for NAFTA). They are very thick skinned and caustic. I thought I was a tough guy, but I can't even sip it all down. Should I work my way up from the limes or get a different kind of lemons. I watered them down and added honey to make a refreshing beverage. I can handle that even though it isn't you know what. Will that do, or should I "man up" and get used to it. I swear I would have an easier time with cow urine! Do you think it is a subliminal blockage due to the fact that I listened to the Peter Paul and Mary song (fruit is impossible to eat) too many times at an impressionable age?

Hi Rajan!

I love the bright fresh taste in so many recipes and lemon juice adds so much flavor without adding calories.

It may not help control blood sugar in the same way as vinegar, but it can help by adding rich, low calorie, high vitamin flavor.

They are also effective in curing biliousness, heartburn, nausea, constipation and worm infestations.

If you make a habit of drinking lemon water consistently in the mornings it acts as a tonic to your liver and stimulates your liver to make bile and be ready to digest the food you eat during the day.

Lemon water can also assist in relieving symptoms of tonsillitis, asthma and sore throat. Lemons provide your body with many vitamins that are beneficial to your health.

Your hub is amazing that include A to Z of Health, Beauty and Fitness because of the high vitamin C content in lemons they may help prevent and treat infections, bring down high fevers and hasten wound healing. Vitamin C supports your immune system to help fight off diseases and infections. Vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen and a vital structural component of blood vessels, bone, ligaments and tendons.

I normally have a lemon or two in a pint of water, first thing in the morning. Then have breakfast an hour later.

So I've been with my girlfriend for five years now and we love to bicker about random things. A couple days ago she was talking about how lemons are really bad for your teeth and that her mother was told by the doctor to stop giving lemons to the kids. I was like WTH are you talking about?!? Lemons are sooooooooo good for you.

Thanks for the ammo!

Hi Rajan,

Thanks for writing this article. I've started taking lemon juice (one lemon) with water every morning. However, the sourness of the lemon has started hurting my throat considerably. Any suggestions on how I can get around this? I also wanted to know if adding honey negates the lemon's healing properties.

Thanks again

Bobby
