This morning, let’s take some vitamins and see what the benefits of lemon are. Already, it is a very low-calorie fruit, slightly sweet and very rich in vitamins. So it’s full of benefits. The main one is its high content of vitamin C, which facilitates the absorption of iron to combat deficiencies. It helps stimulate the immune system and strengthens it against viral infections.
Lemon is also rich in minerals, calcium, potassium and flavonoids, a complicated word for antioxidants. Its acidity is due to the presence of citric acid which contributes to good calcium absorption and good digestion.
Lime differs from lime. This is not a lemon that has not ripened but the fruit of another tree, the lime tree. Nutritionally, they are similar, although lime is more acidic and richer in certain minerals, vitamin A and B9, while lime is richer in vitamin C.
Drinking lemon in the morning or before a big meal helps digestion. Citric acid stimulates the secretion of bile acids that are involved in the digestion of lipids. However, limit lemon juice if you have a fragile stomach and especially problems with gastric reflux which could be exacerbated.
