Power Up with Citrus

Once upon a time, back in the Victorian era, citrus fruits were rare and expensive, a delicacy to be enjoyed only on special occasions. Earlier still, for sailors suffering from scurvy on long voyages, limes or lemons literally could make the difference between life and death. Today, we take oranges, mandarins, grapefruits, lemons, and limes for granted, drinking their juice or eating their flesh without batting an eye.
