Recent studies show that limonoids, compounds found in the chemical makeup of lemons and citrus fruit, slow down ER+ and ER- breast cancer cells during reproduction. This news could have very interesting significance for cancer treatment.
In order to get the most health-boosting power out of your lemons – try freezing them and using the entire fruit, not only the juice.
Practically, take an organic lemon and freeze it in your freezer. Then, once frozen, grate the entire lemon with a common kitchen cheese grater. Do not peel it first. Sprinkle these peelings onto salads, soup, pasta, or into any kind of sauce or dressing.
The point of freezing and using the entire fruit stems from the fact that lemon peel contains 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice.
But wait, there’s more.
The power of lemons doesn’t end with cancer cells. Studies have also shown that lemon combats cysts and tumors, as well as having an anti-microbial effect against bacterial infections and fungi, regulatory effect on blood pressure, and anti-depressant powers.
Long ignored, for whatever reason, by mainstream media, in more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, lemons have been shown to have destroyed malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas.
Furthermore, the compounds of the lemon tree were 10,000 times more effective than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutically to fight the growth of cancer cells. However, this evidence is anecdotal and is not currently being used to treat cancer patients. Research is always ongoing, so you should always be sure to take the advice of your healthcare professional, and never reject mainstream treatments.
