It’s no surprise that water is essential for our bodies. The human body is about 60% water, water flushes out toxins, keeps you energized and prevents dehydration. We’ve all heard about drinking lemon water but now lime water is becoming a popular trend.
Lime is a type of citrus fruit, it’s an excellent source of antioxidants. They are also a great source of magnesium and potassium.
Here are some benefits of adding just a splash of lime to your water:
Rejuvenates your skin: Limes contain vitamin C and flavonoids, the antioxidants that strengthen collagen. Drinking lime water can hydrate and rejuvenate your skin. Vitamin C and flavonoids are also found in some topical skin care products.
Improves digestion: Limes are acidic and they help saliva break down food for better digestion. Additionally, flavonoids in limes stimulate secretion of digestive juices. If you experience constipation, the acidity of limes can clear the excretory system and stimulate bowel activity.
Fights off infection: The vitamin C and antioxidants in limes can strengthen your immune system and help your body fight off infections such as the cold and flu virus. It may also shorten the duration of an illness.
Lower blood sugar: Limes have a low glycemic index and help regulate how your body absorbs sugar into the bloodstream. As a result, you may experience fewer blood sugar spikes.
Reduces inflammation: Arthritis, gout, and other joint problems are all caused by inflammation. Vitamin C can reduce the level of inflammation in your body, so adding lime juice to water can relieve symptoms of arthritis and similar conditions that cause joint pain and stiffness.
