Nutrition and Health Benefits of Lemon

With its intense scent, Lemon is one the best-known citrus fruits, with important benefits for our health.

Do you know what the "canarino" is for us Italians?
This word, which means “canary”, refers to the colour of a simple and quick infusion made with boiling water and lemon zest.
For us it was a kind of miraculous elixir, which our mothers and grandmothers prepared whenever we suffered from indigestion and stomach ache!

Traditions handed down from generation to generation, as well as that of using lemon to combat scurvy, a disease that affected many sailors suffering from Vitamin C deficiency.
Just think that, for this very reason, in the eighteenth century the English navy forced sailors to take a dose of citrus juice every day!

The Vitamin C contained in Lemons is also useful for strengthening the immune system and getting rid of flu symptoms.

That’s not all: Lemon juice has been widely used in pharmacology over the centuries as an anti-haemorrhagic, as an intestinal disinfectant and for its ability to decrease blood glucose levels.

Finally, Lemon is indicated as a tonic for circulation, and its bactericidal and antiseptic functions are well recognized.
