Is lemon good for sore tonsils?
Does lemon help a sore throat? – The short answer is yes. Regardless of how you consume it, lemon helps to ease the pain of a sore throat – and there are many other health benefits of lemons, too. But how exactly do lemons soothe a sore throat? One key factor in lemons’ powers of soothing is their high levels of citric acid.
Citric acid is present in all citrus fruits such as grapefruits, oranges and pineapple, but the highest amounts of citric acid can be found in lemons and limes. Eating or drinking citric acid lowers the pH of your mouth – which can help to kill off bacteria and viruses that might be causing your sore throat.
Additionally, the citric acid also helps to break up mucus. When you have a sore throat it can often become irritated by thick mucus, making the pain worse. By breaking up the mucus, lemon can help to ease that pain and inflammation and get you feeling better quicker.
- Lemons are also high in vitamin C, which is very useful when it comes to fighting off infections.
- Vitamin C acts as a boost to the immune system, which can help you to get rid of an infection causing your sore throat.
- By removing the cause, your sore throat should go away.
- As well as helping to ease a sore throat, these factors also mean that lemons can help to prevent you ending up with a sore throat in the first place.
