Benefits and medicinal uses of lime.

* Scurvy: Lime is so famous as a cure for scurvy, the disease which is caused due
to deficiency of vitamin-C and characterized by frequent infections with cough and
cold; cracked lips and lip corners; ulcers in tongue and mouth; spongy, swollen and
bleeding gums etc. that now a days even a child can tell you that. Since its cause is
deficiency of vitamin-C, its remedy is none other than vitamin-C, and lime is blessed
with this vitamin. In olden days, soldiers and sailors were given lime to keep safe from
scurvy, which was a dreaded disease then. Even now, it is distributed among the
workers working in polluting environments like those working in furnaces, painting
shops, heat treatments, cement factories, mines etc. to protect them from scurvy.

* Digestion: Lime has an irresistible scent which waters the mouth and thus aid
primary digestion (the digestive saliva floods your mouth even before you taste it).
Then the acids in it do the rest. While they break down of the macro molecules of the
food, the Flavonoids, the compounds found in the fragrant oils extracted from lime,
stimulate the digestive system and increase secretion of digestive juices, bile and
acids and also stimulate the peristaltic motion. This is the reason behind having
lemon pickle with lunch and dinner is an age old practice in India and some of its
neighboring countries.

* Constipation: Primarily, the ample of acids present in lime helps clear the
excretory system by washing and cleaning off the tracts, just like some acids are
used to clean floor and toilets. Then the roughage in it is also helpful in easing
constipation. But it is mainly due to high acids. An overdose of lime juice with salt
also acts as an excellent purgative without any side effects, thereby giving relief
in constipation.

* Peptic Ulcer: In addition to vitamin-C, lime contains special compounds called
Flavonoids (Limonoids such as Limonin Glucoside) which have anti oxidant, anti
carcinogenic, anti biotic and detoxifying properties which help healing of peptic
and oral ulcers.

* Respiratory Disorders: The oil, containing Flavonoids and certain oils, extracted
from lime is extensively used in anti congestive medicines such as balms, vaporizers,
inhalers etc. due to presence of Kaempferol. Just scratching the peel of a lime and
inhaling it gives immediate relief in congestion and nausea.

* Gout: There are two main causes of Gout. While the first reason is accumulation
of free radicals in the body; the second is accumulation of toxins, primarily uric acid.
Now, limes can help you with both of these. It is a reservoir of anti oxidants &
detoxifiers (vitamin-C & Flavonoids) which free radicals as well as detoxify the body.

* Gums: The root causes of gum problems are deficiency of vitamin-C (Scurvy,
which gives bleeding and spongy gums) and microbial growth. Sometimes, the ulcers
and wounds from bones, hard objects etc. are also the causes. In all of these, limes can
help you. Its vitamin-C cures scurvy, Flavonoids inhibit microbial growth and
potassium and Flavonoids help heal ulcers and wounds.

* Eye Care: Vitamin-C again! Its anti oxidant properties protect eyes from aging
and macular degeneration. Flavonoids help protect them from infections.

* Piles: Since lime helps heal up ulcers and wounds in the digestive system and
excretory system and gives relief from constipation too, it eradicates all the root
causes of piles.

* Weight Loss: A glass of warm water with a full-lime juice in it is an excellent
weight reducer as well as a brilliant refresher and anti oxidant drink. The citric acid
present in lime is an excellent fat burner. Just have two glasses a day and see the
remarkable result within a week.

* Skin Care: Lime juice and its oil are very beneficial for skin when consumed orally
or applied externally. It rejuvenates the skin, keeps it shining, protects it from
infections and reduces body odor due to presence of a large amount of vitamin-C and
Flavonoids, both of which are class-1 anti oxidants, anti biotic and disinfectants. When
applied externally on skin, its acids scrub out the dead cells, cures dandruff, rashes,
bruises etc. and gives you a refreshing bath if its juice or oil is mixed into your bathing

* Urinary Disorders: The high potassium content of limes is very effective in
removal of the toxic substances and the precipitates deposited in kidneys, urinary
bladder and its disinfectant properties help cure infections in the urinary system. It
also stops prostrate growth (very common in males above 40) and clears blockage of
urine due to deposition of calcium in the urinary tract.

* Other Benefits: It is a good appetizer and digestive. It helps cure arthritis,
rheumatism, prostrate and colon cancer, cholera, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, fatigue,
heart diseases and even very high fever (in contrary to popular belief). The best part
of it is that it has no side effects.

and if ingested in large quantity (even a small handful) can be fatal. So, avoid chewing
or swallowing the seeds when you use limes.
