Citrus is one of the most important fruits that exist because they’re packed with Vitamin C, which, in less modern times, was a real problem. Sailors, who had no way of accessing the nutrient, would often come down with scurvy, which would make them feel weak, have achy muscles, and dental problems, often ending in losing teeth or major gum disease and infection. In those days, these issues could become deadly. Citrus, with its powerful punch of nutrients, would prevent these ailments. In addition to its natural nutrition, they are just delicious! They smell great, and can actually lift a person’s mood, helping to prevent symptoms of depression in some, just by smelling them. They are bright and colorful to look at. They are cheery all the way around. Have you ever met someone who hated citrus fruits? Of course not!
