The Anti-Aging Properties of Lemon Peel

Sliced Lemons

Lemons can do a lot when it comes to slowing the aging process.

See last week’s blog post The Anti-Aging Properties of Lemons.

But there is more to this story. The rind, that outside yellow shell is ripe with benefits.

Lemon Zest

In fact lemon rind/peel/zest contains 5 to 10 times more vitamins than lemon juice itself.

Which means it can do a lot for an ageless beauty seeker.

  • Reduces gas and cramping
  • Promotes nail growth
  • Boost immune system due to high vitamin C content
  • Increases Circulation
  • Eliminates impurities in skin cells, promoting healthy skin
  • Cleanses the liver
  • Prevents Scurvy
  • Fights Cancer due to component known as salvestrol Q40
  • Flavonoids in lemon peel curb division of cancer cells

There are many ways to get lemon peel/zest into your daily diet.

I like to grate it with a zester and put it in:

Smoothie with lemon zest

Smoothies

Lemon Tarragon Chicken

Chicken

Lemon Zest Salad Dressing

Salad dressings

Lemon zest on fish

Fish

add lemon zest to oatmeal

Oatmeal

lemon zest in tea

Tea

lemon zest whip cream

Sprinkle on berries and whip cream

You can even put your lemons in the freezer and pull out when you need to grate them.

There you have it. The best anti-aging bang for your buck is to zest those lemons.
