One of the most beneficial fruits today are lemons. They are abundant in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, but were you aware that their peel is even more beneficial then the fruit itself? It contains from 5 to 10 more vitamins than the juice! Lemons are full of bioflavonoids, vitamins B1, B6, C, A, pectin, magnesium, folic acid, potassium, calcium, phosphorus etc. Many people don’t know that they have the ability to help us prevent joint pain!
A recent research managed to discover that lemons can really relieve the pain which appears in the legs, arms and joints. Lemon peel is abundant in essential oils that are full of anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe our blood vessels.
Because of this, our nerve pain becomes neutral. You can use lemon peel in 2 different ways:
- Peel 2 organic lemons and put them in a glass jar. Add some olive oil to cover them and close it tightly. Keep the jar in a cool and dark place for 15 days. After this period passes, soak a gauze in the jar. Put it on the painful areas and secure it using a bandage. Leave it like that throughout the whole night.
- For the second recipe, you will have to grate the yellow part of the lemon only. Put it on the painful spot and secure it using a bandage. Leave it to rest like that for several hours. The results will amaze you!
