While lemons contain small amounts of iron, the significant amounts of vitamin C and citric acid help to increase the absorption of iron from other foods, which can prevent anemia according to studies (1516).

4. Prevents Cancer

Studies show lemons may help reduce the risk of numerous cancers (17, 18). Researchers attribute this to hesperidin (19) and d-limonene (20, 21), just two of the many potent flavonoids found in lemons that are known to contain antioxidant and cancer-fighting properties.

5. Enhances Immune Function.

Not only can the powerful antioxidants in lemons boost your immune system (22), but they can also protect you from developing serious diseases. (23, 24)
