Health Benefits of Organic Limes
In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I'm going to talk about health benefits of organic limes. It’s really hard for me to imagine a kitchen without the taste and smell of fresh limes. I personally add freshly squeezed lime into almost every dish that I make. Lemons are usually yellow and limes are green and smaller than lemons. Here are the health benefits of limes/lemons:
Lemons are good for killing bacteria on skin and face. Since skin is the biggest organ in body, using lime can get rid of bacteria and toxics on the skin. Mix an organic lemon with organic grapeseed oil and gently rub it all over your face and leave it for half an hour before rinsing. The rich source of flavonoids and vitamin C in limes can keep skin shiny by protecting it from bacteria and infections.
Cleansing Body and a Rich Source of Vitamin C and Antioxidants
Limes cleans the inner liver and all organs in body; that’s how lime fasting gets rid of toxins. Lime also promotes weight loss by getting rid of toxins & help constipation by washing and cleaning off the tracts. Lime is an excellent Source of Vitamin C & Antioxidants that Helps to Reduce the Chances of Heart Disease and Cancer. Vitamin C in lime neutralizes free radicals in body, reduces inflammation and painful swelling and reduces symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Vitamin C in lime improves the immune system and is beneficial for healing flues, cold and sore throat or ear infections. Studies show that consumption of fruits and vegetables high in vitamin C can prevent and lower the chances of strokes, heart disease and cancer. I had a friend of mine who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1994. After 3 doctors diagnosed her, they all said that she must have chemotherapy or else she may die within 6 month. She didn’t want to do chemotherapy so she looked everywhere for an alternative medicine.
One of her friends told her that she receives treatment from a lady in Dallas, TX that helps her recover from breast cancer. She took her friend’s advice and went to Dallas, TX and received treatment from that alternative heart care provider which involved 3000 mg of vitamin C injection directly by IV for a period of 30 days. After 30 days she returned to her medical doctor for check up. Today she is still alive with no signs of breast cancer although she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1994 and was told that she would die within 6 month if she doesn’t receive any chemotherapy.
