Health benefits of boiling lemon

Lemons are naturally high in vitamin C and several other vitamins and minerals, but boiling them may actually reduce the amount of nutrients they contain

Lemons are naturally high in vitamin C and several other vitamins and minerals, but boiling them may actually reduce the amount of nutrients they contain.

Improves skin appearance - Lemons are rich in vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that protects skin cells from damaging free radicals, thereby reducing the signs of aging. It may also stimulate collagen production, giving the skin a plumper, firmer appearance and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.

Lowers BP - Lemons are good sources of minerals that may help lower blood pressure, such as calcium and potassium.

Boosts immunity - The vitamin C in lemons may help boost the body’s immune system, protecting it against respiratory infections.

Aids weight loss - Although there is no evidence to suggest that lemon water is any more effective than plain water at helping people lose weight, it is still a very low-calorie beverage. Lemon water can also aid hydration, which can boost weight loss and reduce water retention.

Improves digestion - People with indigestion often report symptoms such as bloating and heartburn improving after drinking a glass of hot water and lemon. Studies suggest that drinking warm water can have a soothing effect on the gut.

Boiled lemon vs raw lemon - It is likely that lemons have less nutritional value when cooked. Cooking certain fruits or vegetables can break down vitamins and minerals, which can leach into the cooking water.

Nutritional Content - One raw lemon (without the peel) contains the following nutrition:

16.8 calories  1.62 g of fiber 30.7 mg of vitamin C 15.1 mg of calcium 0.35 mg of iron 4.64 mg of magnesium  9.28 mg of phosphorus 80 mg of potassium

Lemons also contain some other vitamins and minerals in small amounts:

thiamine vitamin B6 pantothenic acid zinc copper manganese riboflavin
