Your Body Changes When You Eat Lemons Regularly

Vitamin C-rich lemons boost collagen synthesis for soft, bright skin. According to EatingWell, registered dietitian and 2-Day Diabetes Diet author Erin Palinski-Wade, RD, CDCES, lemons are rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant that protects cells.

Research suggests that consuming lemon juice concentrate diluted in water daily may raise urine citrate, a citric acid salt that binds to calcium and may prevent kidney stones.

Lemons include vitamin C, which studies show improves iron absorption, especially plant-based non-heme iron. Energy generation and growth require iron.

According to a 2021 Frontiers in Nutrition study, lemons are rich in flavonoids, which may boost your immune system and overall health.

Lemons, like most meals, should be eaten moderately. The Pan African Medical Journal reported in 2018 that lemons' strong citric acid content may erode tooth enamel and cause dental problems if ingested in excess.

"Lemons are highly acidic, which can wear away tooth enamel," warns Palinski-Wade. Additionally, eating too many lemons on an empty stomach might trigger heartburn in acid reflux sufferers.
