Health Benefits of Lime Water and Does Lime Water Help You Lose Weight

Benefits of Lime Water

There are many health benefits of lime water and I will list them below. I will also talk a little bit about how lime water can help you lose weight. However, I must admit that I recently just started drinking lime water. I have been drinking regular water and lemon water both of these have health benefits as well. My plan now is to mix it up, drink some lime water then lemon water and regular water throughout the week. That way I do not get bored with a single flavor and I can weep the health benefits to all three! I do not add any sugar to my lime water! If you need or want something sweet and you still want it to be healthy
then try lime water with honey. I personally do not add anything except lime and water!

So, what are the health benefits of lime water?

Lime Water Helps Digest Food
Lime water actually is very similar to your saliva and digestive acids in your body and this will help break out your food.

Healthy Liver
Lime water helps purify and clean your liver. It also helps regulate bile production and flow. Lime water will dilute bile and when you're feeling nauseous it will help.

Lime Water will Help Heal and Prevent Ulcers
All that wonderful vitamin C will help heal and prevent peptic ulcers as well as painful mouth ulcers. Just by having a glass of lime water on a regular basis.

Lime Water will help Clean and Detoxify your system
There are many toxins that and chemicals on our foods and in our daily environment. Well our body cannot digest or break these things down so in time they tend to build up and make our digestion system sluggish or it starts to deteriorate. Our age does play a small role in the sluggish digestion system. However, a lot of it is because our digestive tract is filled with a toxic slime that is choking us from the inside out. Lime water greatly reduces this imbalance in the body by neutralizing all that gunk and cleaning out your insides.

Lime Water is Great for your Skin
Lime has a lot of Vitamin C and this is one of the main components in the production of collagen, the stuff that keeps your skin supple and young-looking. So drinking lime water on a regular basis as well as rubbing it directly on your skin will give your skin a new lease on life.

Other health benefits of lime water are:

Boost Immune system
fights Arthritis
Prevents Gout
Reduces Phlegm (Mucus)
Prevents Scurvy
Cares for your Eyes

As you can see there are so many different health benefits of lime water. But, does Lime Water Help you Lose Weight?
Since it helps flush out toxins and improves your digestion system. I would have to say that its a big yes it will aid in weight loss. Just drinking water alone will help do this and adding the benefits of lime is only going to help even more.

I know I talk up all the health benefits of lime water and I almost make it sound like a cure all for everything. However I want to make this clear that drinking lime water is not a magic pill and just because you drink it that does not mean you can eat junk food and expect to lose weight or be cured of all that makes you sick. This is my opinion and part of my quest to live a healthy lifestyle!
