🍋 Lemons contain polyphenols (flavonoids), nutrients that we get from plant foods, and that are packed with antioxidants and potential health benefits. You may identify these powerful nutrients as they often contribute to the bitterness, astringency, color, flavor and smell of plant foods. 
If you are looking for the biggest flavor bomb, that very comforting burst in flavor that very few condiments can give, preserved lemons is the answer.
🍋 Eriocitrin, the main lemon polyphenol, is most abundant in the peel – a MUST EAT as far as preserved lemons in concerned. The peel of citrus fruits has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antilipidemic, and antibacterial activities . 👌
In the intestine, flavonoids such as eriocitrin may affect the composition of the gut microbiota, by promoting beneficial bacteria and inhibiting potentially pathogenic species [3, 4, 5]. Food flavonoids may also be transformed by the microbiota into products with more/different health benefits.
🍋 Lemons also contain ample amounts of vitamin C, other phytonutrients, and prebiotic fiber and all contributing to a number of different benefits for supporting gut health [6, 7, 8]. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can help lower gut inflammation and boost the immune system, which as you know, 75% of it resides in your gut! 
🍋 The liver is the largest internal organ in the human body, and it plays a major role in detoxification and excretion of many toxins. Lemon peel stimulates liver detoxification, thus supporting the body’s ability to free itself of toxins.
