Most people are aware that lemons boost our immune system because they have vitamin C. But there is so much more. The benefits of lemons are tremendous and we would love to share some of these benefits with you.
But before we share these benefits we want to share this devotional thought. We want to remind everyone that God cares about our health and well-being. He wants us to be healthy and happy and He wants us to resist sinful habits as well. As we recharge and move one step closer to improving our health let us spend sometime to thank God for His grace and mercy towards us. He loves us unconditionally and has provided fruits such as lemons to improve our health. Some of us know the right choices to make but often times we make the wrong ones that affect our health.
Think about a room with spiders and cobwebs everywhere. Every week someone comes in and removes the cobwebs only to find more cobwebs the following week. Why do you think this happens?

More Benefits of Lemons
Helps to freshen breath
Bad breath can be avoided by drinking a glass of lemon water after we eat or we may drink a glass when we wake up in the morning. Lemon helps to stimulate saliva and water also helps prevent dry mouth which leads to bad breath.
Helps to Prevent Kidney Stones
Citric acid helps to prevent kidney stones by increasing urine volume and increasing urine pH. This creates a less favorable environment for kidney stone formation. Citrate is a very important element of citric acid which helps to break up stones that are small.
Increases Iron Absorption
The iron deficiency anemia is quite common. It occurs when our bodies don’t get enough iron from the foods that we eat. Lemons help to prevent anemia by improving your absorption of iron from plant foods. Your stomach absorbs iron from meat easily but not as easily from plant sources. Lemons can improve this absorption however because they contain both vitamin C and citric acid.
