Microwave Your Lemons For Even More Juice

Microwave Your Lemons For Even More Juice

Angela Markus

It’s no secret that lemons have numerous health benefits. Even the ancient Egyptians believed that eating lemons and drinking the juice were effective methods of protection against a variety of poisons. We all know just how strenuous it can be to juice the fruit, but thankfully, we have the best tip for you!

Lemons have strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers. Lemons also aid in weight loss as the juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. According to organicfacts.net, they contain many substances–notably citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene—that promote immunity and fight infection.

When you take a lemon out of refrigerator, it becomes considerably harder to juice. Lemons left out at room temperature will produce more juice that one that was left in the fridge.

If you put lemons in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds, you will be able to harvest every drop. Why is that? Warming any citrus fruit, including lemons will loosen the insides, allowing the juices to flow a lot more freely.
