Finger Lime Health Benefits

A finger lime is approximately three inches in length and resembles a pickle or gherkin due to its elongated shape. Whilst it is a proud member of the citrus family, alongside the lemon, lime, kumquat, limequat and pomelo, they are in fact very different.

 

The flesh of a finger lime not only looks amazing, but it is also highly nutritional, and provides us with Folate, Potassium and Vitamin C. Finger limes are also more commonly now used to make jams, and used as a garnish in salads to add a uniqueness to a dish.

 

Lemons and limes are the kings of citrus fruit. One of the most refreshing drinks on a hot summer day is chilled mineral water with a splash of freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice. Finger lime is abundant in vitamin A.

 

Also considered an important antioxidant, vitamin A is necessary in order to protect your cells against diseases such as cancer.

 

If you have poor or sensitive eyesight then vitamin A can also help improve your vision. This vitamin helps your eyes adjust to the light and dark and prevents sight disorders such as night blindness.

 

Finger lime is also a rich source of potassium. Potassium is effective in lowering blood pressure, so if you are suffering from hypertension then you might want to include plenty of caviar into your meals.

 

Medical experts also claim that potassium can prevent the development of kidney stones.

 

Kidney stones are formed by calcium build-up. Potassium keeps the calcium in your body from forming stones.

 

The omega 3 fatty acid in finger lime helps in lowering the risk of breast, colon, and prostate cancer and provides a shield against heart attack and stroke.

 

The good amount of Vitamin D present in caviar helps the body in the formation of blood teeth and bones.
