Lemon is a popular fruit that includes many helpful nutrients for humans. Accumulated proof from research shows that nutritional intake of lemon and lemon products e.g. lemon peel, lemon grass oil, lemon extract appears to be inversely linked to the reduced danger of numerous infectious illnesses and cancers. These helpful impacts of the lemon will be attributed to their chemical constituents in particular. Lemon contains a range of important nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin A, carotenes of different kinds, as well as several non nutrient phytochemicals as well as categories of flavonoid, coumarin, glucarate, monoterpenes, triterpenes and phenolic acids. There are many compounds distinctive to lemon that are comparatively uncommon in other plants, their individual components such as sesqui terpene isointermedeol, geraniol, terpene, quercetin and eriocitrin have also shown anticancer activity against various cell lines. This review regularly summarized lemons anticarcinogenic effect in cancer therapy along with the fundamental molecular mechanisms needed to further explore the more efficient use of lemon peel, lemon grass oil, lemon extract.
