HEALTH BENEFITS OF LIMES
Citrus fruits can add a tart, zesty kick to almost any food or drink. But what are the health benefits of limes? While most people might only think of limes as a garnish, limes can pack a nutritional punch for your diet.
Here are a few health benefits of limes:
Limes contain antioxidants, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation and even help prevent certain chronic illnesses.
Protect Against Infection
The high levels of Vitamin C found in limes can help protect you from infection and speed up your body’s healing process.
Prevent Kidney Stones
Citrus fruits have been shown to help keep kidney stones at bay. The citric acid in lemons, limes, and other citrus fruits makes it more difficult for kidney stones to form.
Guard Against Stroke
Studies have shown that the flavonoids found in citrus fruit, including limes, may help protect against stroke, especially in women. Still, more research needs to be done into this subject.
Healthy Bones and Teeth
Bone and tooth development can also benefit from the Vitamin C found in limes.
Improve Your Immune Health
Vitamin C is vital to your immune health. Regularly eating limes, which are high in Vitamin C, can even help you stave off the common cold.
