Lemons are rich in citric acid, vitamin c, and polyphenols. One of the main lemon polyphenols (LLP) is called the Eriocitrin. This yellow water-soluble antioxidant compound is found in abundance in the juice and peels lemons (NIH).
The National Institute Of Health (NIH) conducted a study to show the effects of lifelong effects of LLP on ageing and gut microorganisms.
As we get older our skin and GI tract age, this study suggests. Lemon Polyphenols may have anti-aging effects not only on our health, but on our gut environment as well.
Positive changes in our GI tract may help promote weight loss, according to studies.
The Harvard School Of Public Health describes microbiome as the coexistence of both good and potentially harmful bacteria or microbes in your gut.
There is no problem when there is a balance between the good and bad microbes. Environmental factors and one’s diet can either promote or put you at risk for diseases.
In addition to a healthy diet that consists of daily consumption of fruits and vegetables, detoxing is a great way to cleanse and rejuvinate your digestive system and promote a healthy gut.
There are many health benefits to a healthy gut microbiome, such as: a healthy immune system, removal of toxic substances from the gut, synthesis of certain vitamins and minerals, and overall feeling of good health.
