5 Side Effects of lemon No-one Ever Told You

When life gives you lemons, make lemonades, say some. We say, every once in a while, skip the lemonade. Most of us consider lemon as a ‘bliss’ for our health, skin and hair. Well, it actually is and without any doubt. But at the same time, it also comes with a number of adverse side effects.

1. Un-Healthy Stomach

If you consume raw lemon juice in more quantity in a day, chances are high that you will end up having an upset stomach. Our system is unable to digest all in a single go, which is why it keeps the stomach highly acidic for a long time. Consequently, the mucous membranes of the digestive tract get irritated, leading to stomach pain and loose motion.

2. Gastric Problems

This is commonly known as ‘acid reflux’, and lemon is one of the much-talked about food items responsible for it. The acid content of the fruit can weaken the lower esophageal sphincter (the muscle, which separates the stomach from the esophagus), promote acid production in the stomach and irritate the already damaged internal lining of the esophagus. All these intensify the situation by triggering GERD symptoms. Some of the symptoms are heartburn, regurgitation, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, sore throat, etc.

3. Ulcer

Excessive consumption of lemon can make your stomach extremely acidic by stimulating the production of acid in it. This takes a toll on the inner wall of the organ and irritates its lining. This results in mild to severe peptic ulcers.

4. Kidney Stone

Along with lemon juice, lemon peels too are used in cooking worldwide. Yet, it has been found that these peels contain huge amounts of oxalates. The oxalates turn into crystals within our body and interrupt calcium absorption to a large extent. The unabsorbed calcium solidifies within our kidneys and gallbladder in the form of stones.

5. Migraine

Studies have proved that lemon can be one of the most common reasons behind frequent migraine or headache attacks. It contains a considerable amount of amino acid called tyramine, which boosts the flow of blood to our brain, all of a sudden. This leads to symptoms like acute migraine or chronic tension-type headaches.
