Lemon Peel Remedy

To remove the lemon peel you can use a sharp knife, a potato peeler, a zester or a fine grater. Cut between the lemon peel and the white membrane and make sure that you remove as little white membrane as possible - as this is very bitter. Chop the thin lemon peel into tiny pieces using a chef’s knife on a cutting board.

Lemon peel contains minerals and fibre such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, beta-carotene, vitamins A and C. Lemon peel contains 5 – 10 times more nutrients than lemon juice.  It also contains substances like citronella and phellandrene that are beneficial for good health. Due to its antioxidant content lemon peel protects and decongests the liver.

Lemon peel contains high quantities of vitamin C and flavonoids that help cleanse the blood vessels,  reduce bad cholesterol and high blood pressure. The vitamin C content reinforces the body’s immune system and helps prevent colds, flu and infections. Calcium and other minerals help strengthen bones and prevent bone damage.

Lemon peel juice or tea is helpful for relieving intestinal gas, reducing abdominal inflammation, improving digestion and eliminating toxins and waste products from the body.

To make lemon peel juice add the peel from one lemon to a blender, add half a litre of water, a tablespoon of honey, mix and add some ice cubes if you prefer it cold.
