Lemon Peel is derived from the fruit of Citrus limon which is cultivated in warmer climates across the globe and is also known as the common lemon. Although orange peel is more commonly prescribed in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, the lemon peel also stimulates the appetite by encouraging the release of gastric juices to digest food and helps provide vitamin C. Lemon peel is added to many herbal teas and herbal formulas for aroma and taste enhancement. Many people eat the lemon peel or add it to teas in order to enhance flavor and impart its delicious, citrusy aroma.
Here are some additional benefits of lemon peel.
Boosts immunity: The high vitamin C content of lemon peel can help to boost the immune system and protect against infection.
Improves heart health: Lemon peel contains compounds that can help lower cholesterol levels and blood pressure, both of which are important risk factors for heart disease.
Reduces inflammation: Lemon peel contains antioxidants that can help to reduce inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation is linked to a number of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis.
Promotes weight loss: Lemon peel contains fiber, which can help to promote feelings of fullness and reduce calorie intake. Additionally, the compounds in lemon peel may help to boost metabolism and promote fat burning.
