Lemon peels are often discarded in the process of making lemon juice or zest, but they contain several nutritional benefits. For starters, lemon peels are high in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, calcium, and potassium. Additionally, they are a rich source of antioxidants, which can help protect against oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
Lemon peels also contain compounds like limonene and salvestrol Q40 that have been linked to potential anti-cancer properties. Furthermore, including lemon peel in your diet may help improve digestion and support a healthy immune system.
