Lemon Lemon is also referred to as Citrus Limonum. It is an important essential oil and used to improve body health conditions. It is useful in blood circulation, digestive problems, acne, increase concentration, cold, fever, insect bites, and whitening. The following health benefits have been identified through research work done; Curative effect A study to evaluate the effect of Aqueous Zest Extract of Citrus Limonium (AZECL) on female Wistar rat ovary treated with Cisplatin. A total of twenty (20) adult female Wilstar was shared into four groups with 5 rats each (group A-D). The results showed that there was a significant decrease in primary, secondary, and graafian follicles and an increase in atretic follicles. The study showed the curative effect of aqueous zests extract of C. Limonium on cisplatin-induced cytotoxicity on the ovary Effects on blood sugar In a study to test the impact of lemon juice on the glycemic response to bread and subsequent energy intake in healthy adults. A randomized crossover study was carried out with equal portions of bread (100 g) and lemon juice. After 180 min and 3 hrs, the capillary blood glucose and libitum energy were monitored respectively. The lemon juice was effective in lowering mean blood glucose concentration and it’s a good strategy to reduce the glycemic index. Biochemical, hematological, and immunological response In a study to evaluate the effects of lemon on the performance, biochemical, haemato-immunological parameters, and possible disease resistance in fingerling (4 weeks old) Labeo victorianus challenged Aeromonas hydrophila. The fish were divided into 5 groups treated with 1%, 2%, 5%, and 8% lemon extract and the control group without extract of Lemon. The results showed that the formulation of feeds incorporated with 5% lemon extract fruit peels significantly improved biochemical, hematological, and immunological response in juvenile fish resulting in a decrease in mortality compared to the untreated groups and exhibit antibacterial properties against A. hydrophila.
