Rich in vitamin C, lemons are just the thing to make up the vitamin deficiency that causes scurvy. The fragrance that lemons exude can increase the secretion of digestive saliva, which helps to digest the food quickly. Flavonoids such as Limonin Glucoside have anti-carcinogenic, antioxidant, detoxifying and antibiotic properties that are great for healing oral ulcers and peptic ulcers.

Even though sweet lime has so many properties, it cannot be taken too much for Renal Failure patients, because it contains much potassium.
