Now here’s information that you have probably never heard before – more than 300 million individuals on our planet are dealing with asthma. Asthma is also the most frequent chronic disease in kids.

What Makes Lemons Good Remedy Against Asthma?

Lemons are loaded with antioxidants and vitamin C. These compounds enhance the work of the immune system and aid the body’s battle against, bacteria, germs, and other harmful microorganisms and on top of that, they protect us from allergens.

People around the world have used lemons in cases of dental issues, throat infections, indigestion, constipation, hypertension, rheumatism and respiratory issues for centuries.

Freshly squeezed lemon juice contains citric acid which is an excellent transporter of nutrients needed for creating energy. This acid eliminates toxins from the lungs and keeps them strong which means that people with asthma can inhale and exhale easily.

Lemons also have powerful antioxidant effects that help people fight against allergens that enter the body through the respiratory system. This is how asthma attacks are triggered.

A scientific study conducted not while ago in the Israel Institute of Technology – Technion has shown that inhalation of limonene, the active ingredient in citrus oil is able to protect kids from childhood asthma caused by UV radiation exposure. Scientists have determined that limonene has the ability to work very well as ozone eliminator by eliminating ozone chemicals which usually cause inflammation in the airways and lung damage in animals and humans.
