Our nature is filled with miracle working living things like plants and trees.  Here is yet  another Wonder working Tree and its fruits  Limes and Lemons
 A Brief History and its Medicinal Uses.
Limes As the title says: “Lime is no doubt a wonder fruit.  It is a rounded fruit that is pointed at both ends and it is greener than lemon to which it is associated.  Its origin is Asia around India Burma and Malaysia.  And it is now mostly grown in Mediterranean basin, the West Indies, Mexico, Florida and south California and other nations.  It is estimated that this plant is cultivated in these regions for about 2500 years.  The Arabs introduced this to Europe, they brought them to Spain in the 11th century. Almost the same time it is introduced to the African countries.  It is believed that Christopher Columbus brought this to America in his second voyage to the New World in 1493.
Like limes lemon also is a small oval citrus fruit and generally it feature a yellow color.  Its inner flesh is encased in segments with an average lemon having eight to ten. Scientifically it is known as Citrus Limon.
Though it is tart to bite it flavor to many other foods, and  it is a very refreshing  too.  There are two types of lemon one is sweet in flavor and other is sour lemons.
Its Health Benefits are countless.  Its flavonoids compounds contents do wonders to the human body which works as antioxidant and anti-cancer properties.  Compounds in limes and lemons generally called lemonade can fight cancers of mouth, skin, lung, breast stomach and colon.  It is found as a best cancer fighting source.  The vitamin C contents in limes helps to fight cancer. A recent study (Johns Hopkin University)reveals how vitamins C in limes fights cancer cells.  The content of Vitamin C in limes are 32% and fiber content is 8%.
Limonoids , compounds that giv limes and other citrus fruits their bitter tase, have shown anti-cancer promise in animal studies,  Limonene a phytochemical found in the zest of limes, may also help prevent cancer.

Yet another study conducted by the Harvard university  says: High intakes of citrus fruits, citrirus fruit juices and vitamin C- rich fruits and vegetables helped reduce the risk of oral cancer by 30 to 40 percent.
It is very interesting to note that if you rearrange the letter “LIMES” and you get the word “SMILE” that is exactly true that it gives your mouth plenty to smile about.
Scurvy caused by vitamin C deficiency is bleeding gums, gums can become swollen, purple and spongy . by sucking on limes will reduce this condition of gums.  Gingivitis and periodontics a more advanced form of gum diseases  this can fight by taking more Vitamin C a powerful killer of bacteria.  Lime can play a vital role here, a lime gives you 119.5 mg of vitamin C, or 32 percent of the recommended Daily value.
Though it is good and a wonder working fruit , Here is an alert!!!
Or a word of caution, No doubt it goes well with most of the foods but they don’t  always mix with medication.  Like grapes limes may interact with some prescription drugs leading to higher than usual concentration of the drug in your bloodstream.  In fact, Japanese researchers advise people to avoid any citrus juice when taking medication.  Ask your doctor when you should stay away from limes.
Limes gives a good protection against Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Vitamin C rich foods like limes and lemons provide protection against inflammatory polyarthritis a form of rheumatoid arthritis.  Vitamin C can be helpful for preventing the development and progression of atherosclerosis and diabetic heart diseases.
For the better function of a strong immune system vitamin C is very essential, immune system main goal is to protect you from illness so a bit extra vitamin C may help to reduce the condition of colds, flu and other ear infections.  So the usage of vegetables and fruits high in this nutrient is very much associated with a reduced risk of death from all causes including heart diseases, stroke and cancer.
In fact limes and lemon can work wonders in human body.

Isn’t that why the sailors in the British navy were called “Limeys”? They sucked on limes to keep from getting scurvy. Like your blog, visiting from A-Z.

Hi Lover of birds,
Thanks for the visit,
Yes, you are correct, that is what the history says and I quote: “The British explorers and traders, who were using the vitamin C-rich limes that grew in their West Indies colonies to prevent scurvy, earned the nickname “Limeys,” a word that is often still used colloquially for persons of British descent” Its sucking too really….:-)

You make an interesting point about nutrition, via vitamic C, and reducing incidents related to periodontics. Limes can be an excellent source of nutrients, as you shared.
