Health Benefits of Lime Juice With Water

Lime

Limes are much more than a garnish to an ice cold Corona. They have many health benefits, and are really an amazing fruit. In fact, they are the only fruit I consume more than my beloved Kiwi fruit. Today I’m going to talk about the health benefits of lime juice with water.

How Flavoring Your Water With Lime Can Help You

Lime Water

The top reason I suggest that you flavor your water with lime is simple: it will make you consume more.

Water is an essential key to our bodies running properly, and I try to consume at least 100 oz of filtered water every day. The problem is, it’s so bland and boring that I have a hard time getting it down without feeling a little awkward. Adding some citrus, like lime, makes it more palatable. It’s a fact that since I started making my own “spa water” – I’ve been housing water like never before. I switch it up with lemons, cucumbers, and limes, but the root of it is that I immerse fruits into my water jug and it makes it much more appealing to consume, and consume frequently.

When you drink water, you keep the body hydrated. You can also do this by consuming foods with high water content.

You’ll need to drink a varied amount of water, depending many factors, including:

  • Sex
  • Age
  • Activity levels
  • Are you a nursing mother
  • Climate and surroundings
  • Illness or diseases

What’s become a problem in the USA is the abundance of sugary beverages that line our shelves. You can find no shortage of sweetened drinks like Snapple, Gatorade, and other drinks inside your favorite grocer or convenience store. Most consumers opt for these because they have flavor, but forget about the effects of sugar and the need for water.

Why are Limes Good for You?

Here is just a sampling of the nutrients that limes offer:

  • Phosphorus
  • Calcium
  • Potassium
  • Vitamin C
