Lemon Juice Health Benefits
by Kevin Pederson
is not normally a desirable part of a healthy diet, nevertheless it has its part to play
with lemon, and although there is no doubt that the addition of honey if available is
very much to be preferred.

The high vitamin C content of the lemon has been used for hundreds of years to
ward off scurvy among sailors and travelers. There is little sodium, so the fruit is
good as a flavoring for those on a low salt diet.

Because in some countries the producers of lemons extend their keeping properties
and improve appearance by coating them with the chemical diphenyl and waxing the
fruits, it is a wise precaution to wash the lemon with a little unscented soap and then
rinse thoroughly before converting the whole fruit to juice.

The pulp left from the juicing is excellent for the skin and can also soothe the bites
and stings of insects. If you add equal parts of toilet water and of glycerin to the
residue the mixture can be made to keep the hands smooth.

Doctors Morel and Rochaix demonstrated that the extract of lemon when vaporized
will neutralize the bacteria of meningococcus, typhoid, pneumococcus and
staphylococcus in from 15 to 180 minutes.

A gastronomically inclined Frenchman, Charles Richet, is said by Dr Valnet to have
discovered that the lemon juice added to raw oysters before eating them destroys
92% of the bacteria present within 15 minutes. A good reason to wait before you
eat!

This information is relevant to the idea that lemon juice is a most important therapy
to be used in all cases of infection of the respiratory tract and as a general tonic.

Provided that the juice is diluted with water, there is no danger in taking any
reasonable quantity of lemon juice. Be sure to choose firm, clear colored lemons that
have not begun to wither. The first signs of ageing can be spotted where the stem
was once attached to the fruit.

which have information on
benefits of juices and raw vegetables are also mentioned
which includes lime juice too.
Lemonade is known to have been
used as a refreshing drink since the
time of the Moguls. Modern
investigations have tended to support
this use, the essential oil being very
good for cooling the body. This use
can be extended to the employment
of lemon juice with water and sugar
as the best drink to take when you
have a fever

When the temperature of the body is
high, whether from the effects of the
sun or from the results of illness, it is
necessary to take regular drinks in
order to prevent dehydration. Sugar
