Limes are a rich source of vitamin C, which is a very important antioxidant-based vitamin for healing and repairing the hair, skin, nails, organs and other tissue within the body. Vitamin C is also very beneficial for boosting immunity to keep bacteria and other foreign invaders from overtaking the body.
Limes are also a rich source of folate, otherwise known as folic acid. Folate is also known as vitamin B9. It’s important for nearly every aspect of human health. It’s responsible for creating red blood cells which are the most abundant blood cells in the human body.

Folate also plays a role as a catalyst in metabolism, and protein production as well.
