Lovely Limes:
Limes contain unique flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Limes have interesting flavonoids called flavonol glycosides and include many kaempferol-related molecules. These are interesting for their antibiotic effects and ability to stop cell division in many cancer cells.
