    Lemons are abundant in vitamin C, fibre, and a variety of plant chemicals that are good to the body. Several health benefits are attributed to these minerals. Lemons, in fact, may help with heart health, weight loss, and digestion.

    1.They aid weight loss—Research suggests that plant chemicals found in lemon extracts may aid weight loss in a variety of ways. Lemon extract and plant chemicals have been shown to aid weight loss in animals, but the effects in people remain uncertain.

    2.They boost immunity- Lemons contain vitamin C, which can help you boost your immunity and even fight illnesses.

    3.Support Cardiovascular Health

    Lemons contain a lot of vitamin C.

    One lemon contains roughly 31 milligrammes of vitamin C, or 51% of the recommended daily consumption (RDI).

    According to studies, eating vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables lowers your risk of heart disease and stroke. It’s not just vitamin C, though, that’s regarded to be good for your heart. Lemons’ fibre and plant components may help to reduce some of the risk factors for heart disease.

    For example, one study found that daily use of 24 grammes of citrus fibre extract for a month lowered total blood cholesterol levels.Hesperidin and diosmin, two plant chemicals found in lemons, have also been shown to reduce cholesterol levels.

    4.Prevent kidney stones-Citric acid may help prevent kidney stones by increasing urine volume and pH, making the environment less conducive to the production of kidney stones.

    5.Prevent anemia—Iron deficiency anaemia is very common. It happens when you don’t receive enough iron from your diet.Lemons contain some iron, but their main function is to improve iron absorption from plant meals, which helps to prevent anaemia. Lemons, which contain both vitamin C and citric acid, may help to prevent anaemia by ensuring that you get the most iron from your diet.
