Lemons have a low glycemic index, so they do not cause glucose levels to rise. Lemons are also rich in fiber and antioxidants. These reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. Additionally, lemons have a high vitamin C content and are rich in flavonoids.

Tips to increase Lemon consumption for glucose management
• You can add a small quantity of glucose (about 5g) to lemon water. This prevents a sudden drop in blood sugar levels and alleviates lethargy or tiredness.
• Lemon water can be a refreshing and hydrating way to incorporate lemon into your diet.
• Include lemon in your food by adding lemon juice to salads, marinades, and sauces.
• You can also add lemon zest to baked goods or roasted vegetables.
