Why is eating lemon so good for health?

Lemon is one of the citrus fruits that belongs to the sedge family. It is characterized by the shortness of its bushes, extending about six meters. It is characterized by its oval shape and yellow color. It is also characterized by containing many vitamins and important elements; Such as: vitamin C, vitamin B complex, calcium, and iron.

At the present time, lemon is used in many diverse fields; Including: nutritional fields, cosmetic fields, and health fields, and in this article we will talk about its benefits for the body.

1- Promote iron absorption

Eating foods rich in vitamin C along with foods rich in iron helps to improve the absorption of iron from these foods and improve the body’s ability to utilize it.

Therefore, the use of acid in moderation during food preparation helps to combat anemia

2- Fighting respiratory diseases

Yellow citrus fruits help treat various respiratory problems, including breathing difficulties and annoying asthma attacks, due to its richness in vitamin C, which is important for immune and respiratory health.

Lemon is also an important natural remedy for sore throats due to its antibacterial properties

3- Anti-kidney stones

Lemon contains citric acid in concentrations that exceed other types of citrus, such as: grapefruit and orange, and this acid helps prevent the formation and crystallization of kidney stones.

4- Beneficial for cardiovascular health

Eating lemon juice helps to combat cardiovascular disease, due to its richness in potassium, which is important for the health of the circulatory system.

Potassium helps control blood pressure levels and stimulates the body to relax physically and mentally, and the vitamin C in acid helps maintain a healthy heart.

5-anti fever

Lemon juice or even the fruits themselves help treat colds, flu and any fever that may accompany them, especially since eating acid increases body sweating, which leads to lowering body temperature and thus fighting fever.

6- Cancer prevention:

Lemon contains 22 anti-cancer compounds. Among these compounds, lemon oil, as studies have shown that this oil was able to stop the growth of tumors in laboratory animals. In addition, lemon contains “flavone glycoside”, which is able to stop the division of cancer cells.

Coconut cake is delicious, lemon cake too… So why not combine the two into one? These ingredients combine super well with each other in several preparations, and with this Coconut and Lemon Cake it couldn’t be different. It’s really tasty , too. One of my favorites. It is soft, but at the same time firm because of the coconut fat. The lemon gives it a very special touch.

In addition to being delicious, this cake is also very easy to prepare . It’s basically mixing everything in the recommended order and taking it to bake. The ingredients are simple and affordable , you probably already have them all (or almost) at home. And, because it’s vegan, it doesn’t take cow’s milk or eggs. It still grows, okay?!
