Lemons have multiple vitamins and antioxidants contained in them, but did you know the peel contains 5-10 more vitamins than the juice does? Lemons contain vitamins C, A, B1, B6, magnesium, bioflavonoids, folic acid, pectin, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and much more. One of the most overlooked benefits of lemons is that they can help prevent joint pain.
Conducted in a research not long ago, it has been discovered that lemons can relieve pain in the joints, arms, and legs. The peel of a lemon is full of rich essential oils that soothe blood vessels and have anti-inflammatory properties. This process helps for making nerve pain neutral. There are two different ways you can take advantage of the lemon peel.
1.Grate some rind and be cautious since the yellow layer is what you need, not the white one underneath. Apply this peel on a sore and place a bandage over it. Leave it that way for 2 hours and remove.
2. Take 2 lemons and peel them, then place them in a glass jar. Put some olive oil over them and close tightly. This should sit for 2 weeks. After that time, the oil is good to go. Take a gauze, dip it in the oil and secure with a bandage over the feet to sit overnight.
The uses of a lemon are almost never ending. They can be used for fighting joint pain, relieving morning sickness during pregnancy, or decreasing wrinkles. No matter what, there is certainly a use for a lemon for everyone.
