It's Lime Time

Lots of people most likely only know limes from their occasional cameo in a bottle of beer, but they’re an interesting fruit. Did you know they are part of the Rutaceae family of plants? And limes can be either sweet or sour? The Vegan Diet takes a look at the lime:
Nutritionally limes are a very good source of vitamin C, as mentioned before, and a good source of dietary fiber, calcium, iron and copper and they are low in sodium. They also contain the flavonoids called flavonol glycosides which have antibiotic properties and are said to stop cell division in many cancer cell lines. Due to the high vitamin C levels and antibiotic properties they are a natural way to prevent gum disease and to ease bacterial infections and colds. They are also a remedy for indigestion, heartburn, and nausea.
Be mindful of the recipes, some of them aren’t so Fuhrman-friendly.
