Lemon is a fruit with extremely high nutritional and medicinal value. Lemons are ripe throughout the year, but most of them are ripe in autumn.
The flowering and fruiting of lemons are not concentrated, generally between April and July, and the single flower is only about 5 days, resulting in a longer overall flowering period, so the lemon flower has a long ornamental value.
The fruit ripening is also inconsistent, gradually ripening from October to December, and most of them ripen in November
Lemons are rich in citric acid. In addition to sugar, the main nutrients include calcium, phosphorus, iron, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin C, and high amounts of potassium, and low amounts of sodium.
Lemonade is called lemonade by dipping lemons into thin slices and soaking them in water. Lemonade also has many benefits:
The rich vitamin C contained in lemon is a natural skin care product, which can prevent fine lines, fight age, and protect the skin; at the same time, lemon prevents bleeding gums, improves immunity, and prevents colds.
2. Lose weight

3. Relieving cough and resolving phlegm
Lemon can promote fluid and relieve cough, is anti-inflammatory and bactericidal, and regular drinking can relieve cough and reduce phlegm, and eliminate bronchial inflammation.
4. Promote digestion
Lemonade can stimulate the secretion of gastric juice, increase gastric acid, promote digestion, and can also moisten the intestines, which has the effect of ventilation, laxation, relieving flatulence and heartburn.
5. Prevention of myocardial infarction
The main cause of high blood pressure and myocardial infarction is blood coagulation caused by calcium ions, resulting in poor blood flow. Drinking lemon water can alleviate this problem and effectively prevent the occurrence of high blood pressure and myocardial infarction.
However, it is also necessary to pay attention to drinking lemonade in some cases. First of all, people with more gastric acid or gastric ulcers drinking lemonade will aggravate the disease. Because the pH value of lemon is as low as 2.5, people with hyperacidity and gastric ulcers should not drink lemonade.
Secondly, drinking lemon water in large gulps is not conducive to absorbing nutrients. Do not drink in large gulps.
Drinking water too fast is not only bad for the absorption of the human spleen and stomach but also may cause nausea, vomiting, and other discomforts.
Finally, soaking lemon water for too long will cause the taste to be bitter. Although lemon peel is rich in calcium, the bitter taste of lemon slices should not be soaked for a long time, so drink it now.
