What Do You Use Lemons For?

Most people are familiar with the traditional uses for lemons to soothe sore throats and add some citrus flavour to our foods. However the diversity of applications for lemons far exceeds general knowledge.

Here are just a few:

High Blood Pressure
Lemon contains potassium which controls high blood pressure and reduces the effect of nausea and dizziness.

Mental Health
Lemon water can also prep up your mood and relieve you from depression and stress. Long distance walkers and world travellers as well as explorers look upon the lemon as a Godsend. When fatigue begins, a lemon is sucked through a hole in the top. Quick acting medicine it is, giving almost unbelievable refreshments.

Respiratory Problems
Lemon water can reduce phlegm; and can also help you breathe properly and aids a person suffering with asthma.

Prevents Kidney Stones
Regular consumption of the refreshing drink — or even lemon juice mixed with water — may increase the production of urinary citrate, a chemical in the urine that prevents the formation of crystals that may build up into kidney stones.
