Benefits of Lime tree
Citrus trees (including oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, and lemons) are commonly grown in tropical, subtropical, and temperate regions. Lime is a very popular citrus tree grown in Long An. It is an excellent source of high-value bioactive compounds that are beneficial to the human body, such as vitamin C, B vitamins, potassium, phosphorus among others.
There are also various bioactive compounds extracted from lime fruit that are used to treat heart disease and high blood pressure, also used to support anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. Similar to other citruses, lime juice contains enzymes that are considered a natural method to control obesity and contains various proteins that help burn fat in the human body.
The establishment of a scientific council
Recognizing the health importance of lime trees, a Scientific Council consisting of Scientists from different Universities and Institutes was established to study limes from farm to fork (Planting, harvesting, preservation, processing, and commercialization of lime-based products).
The scientific information is the result of scientific research by the members of the scientific council, as well as the published research results on lime trees in Viet Nam and the world. We have been researching on using all the components with biological or pharmacological effects of lime trees in the direction of non-waste production.
Therefore, we strongly believe that readers will also find helpful scientific information on the health benefits of the lime trees including leaves, stem, fruit juice, peel, and root.
