Lime Health Benefits

August 03, 2015 0 Comments



Just like all other citrus fruits, limes are high in vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that can protect the cells in your body. That means limes and lime juice can fight skin damage from too much sun and reduce wrinkles because vitamin C is essential for collagen production.


The vitamin C in limes can help absorb iron from other plant sources, so adding lime slices or lime juice to vegan and vegetarian dishes helps you get more iron from spinach, legumes and other plant sources of iron.

Limes are tart so it’s difficult to eat them out of hand, but like just like lemons, limes are extremely useful for a healthy diet, even in small amounts.

 

A wedge of lime adds a bit of flavor to plain tap water, so it’s perfect for women who know they need to drink more water but don’t like the taste. Limes can also add a burst of flavor to healthy foods such as green veggies, and can be used to make a delicious marinade for fish.
