Lemon peels help fight cancer

Print Friendly

Safe Body Detoxification(NaturalHealth365) Lemons peels have an enormous amount of health benefits, including the ability to boost your immune system; lower cholesterol and, even, help to prevent cancer. Often overlooked, lemon peels offer anti-microbial protection against bacterial (and fungal) infections – helping the body to eliminate internal parasites and worms.

Does your conventional oncologist understand nutrition?

Scientists reveal that phytonutrients, found in nature, can outperform chemotherapy without the risk of harming the body. We know lemon peels have some compounds that trigger the immune system and have demonstrated its substances can mitigate certain ailments.

For example, modified citrus pectin (MCP) which comes from the pulp and rinds of citrus fruits has been altered to produce shorter sugar chains – making it more easily absorbed by the digestive system and bloodstream. MCP has been found to inhibit the spread of prostate, breast, and skin cancer to other organs.

Why do citrus fruits have so many health benefits?

Limonoids are chemicals, which are found in citrus peels and are responsible for the bitter taste. Limonoids are capable of slowing cancer cell growth and inducing apoptosis (cell suicide). This research was conducted in labs, which have shown that it worked in vitro and on animals.

Lemons contain 22 anti-cancer compounds, including limonene, citrus pectin and flavonol glycosides – which stop cell division in cancer cells.

According to The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) of Australia, citrus fruits pack a powerful punch – reducing the risk of some cancers by 50 percent. These scientists report that citrus fruits are most protective against stomach, mouth, larynx and pharynx cancers.

Whole food nutrition is great for beauty and natural healing

Consuming the entire lemon offers the best results. Most of the plant world contains life-giving substances within the skin, seeds, and pulp. In Ayurvedic medicine, lemon peels are used to detoxify the liver. They also stimulate the appetite by encouraging the release of gastric juices, and contain limonene and at least 45 antioxidant flavonoids, pectin and vitamin C – all known for preventing and reversing cancer.

Natural ways to improve your diet for pennies a day

Here’s one of my favorite ways to enjoy tea – you’ll need one whole lemon frozen; a quarter cup of nettles and some boiling water. Simply place the ¼ cup of dried nettles in a quart jar, grate the entire frozen lemon and pour boiling water to the rim, cover and leave out overnight. The next day strain and add a drop or two of (liquid) stevia and enjoy.

Another way to add lemon peels to your diet is to freeze an organic lemon and use a grater to get some of that lemon zest on to your food. It’s a delicious addition to organic baked fruits or salads. By constantly eating lots of fruits and vegetables – we will help to usher in a new era of disease-free living without the need for toxic pharmaceutical drugs.

    Maybe. My mother-in-law has lived in Fla. for 40+ years, consuming a regular dietary regimen of oranges and grapefruit picked from their trees and has had cancer three times, undergoing conventional treatment – chemo, radiation, surgery. But no, she does not include lemon peels in her diet. This article mentions citrus as a preventive in general and maybe shouldn’t.

    I put 2 whole lemons (peel & all)in my green smoothies. It tastes great!

    I juice the entire organic lemon through our juicer, it adds just enough tang to our vegetable juice. Makes it so good! The pulp goes to our dogs. They especially like the pulp with a couple of raw eggs from our free range organic fed hens.
    Cheers!
