Other tests using both animal and human cells have shown that citrus limonoids found in limes can help fight certain types of cancers, such as mouth, breast, stomach, skin, lung, and colon. It is believed this is accomplished by limonoidsí ability to increase the levels of liver enzymes involved in detoxifying carcinogens. One of the interesting characteristics of limonoids is that they can stay in the body for up to 24 hours after consumption.
