Benefits Of Consuming Lemons?
mlm I want to ask about the benefits of lemon fruit and the right way to consume it. thanks
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lemon fruit (Citrus limon) has various benefits that are good for health when consumed properly. Some examples of the benefits that can be obtained by consuming lemon are:
Increase endurance, because it contains rich in vitamin C and flavonoids. Maintain heart health, reduce the risk of hypertension and hypercholesterolemia, because it is rich in vitamin C Maintain healthy skin, because it is rich in vitamin C Helps lose weight, because it is rich in polyphenol antioxidants Helps digestion, so prevent constipation Prevents bad breath, because it stimulates the production of saliva (saliva) thus preventing dry mouth and the growth of pathogenic bacteria in the mouth Helps absorption of iron, iron is important for preventing anemia Prevents kidney stones, because it contains citric acid which can increase urine volume and increase urine pH, etc. There are no specific recommendations regarding how to properly consume lemon. However, even though it is known to have various benefits as mentioned above, you should still not consume this lemon excessively. Because, excessive consumption of lemon in some sensitive people can trigger an increase in stomach acid production which can cause nausea, vomiting, bloating, heartburn, shortness of breath, and so on. The acidic nature of lemon can also cause teeth to be damaged more easily if it is not accompanied by good oral and dental hygiene.
You can consume lemon as a whole fruit, squeeze it and mix it with water, or make it as infused water. These methods are known to be good for the benefits of lemon. However, our advice, if you are a person with dyspepsia (increased stomach acid, heartburn), you should avoid consuming lemon on an empty stomach or when an attack of acute dyspepsia is occurring. In addition, if you consume lemon juice or infused water, you can drink it using a straw to prevent direct contact between the lemon and your teeth. If after consuming lemon, various complaints arise, including those that lead to dyspepsia, you should stop consuming your lemon first and consult a doctor immediately.
Consuming several types of fruit and food in a balanced manner is more recommended than focusing on just one type of fruit. Therefore, vary the types of fruits you consume every day so that your body is healthier and fitter.
I hope this helps.
