Following on from the ‘you must drink 2 litres of water’ mantra, it doesn’t have to always be plain water you’re guzzling down.
On the contrary, a little lemon or lime thrown into the mix has a heap of helpful advantages for cleansing your system. These 2 delicious & refreshing fruits share a lot of common benefits, so it’s really down to which one you prefer the taste of…
Both lemon and lime juice act in a similar way to our own natural digestive enzymes. So, by introducing them into your diet they can help digest food whilst also aiding any uncomfortable bloating or heartburn you may have. A few drops of either juice into a mug of warm water is advisable first thing in the morning to kick start your day and digestive system. Perfick 🙂
Due to their highly acidic nature, they’re primed for helping to fight infections, like nature’s little warriors. They contain flavonoids which are thought to fight off fungi and have antiseptic properties. So, a little juice when you’re feeling under the weather, particularly with colds and sore throats, can help your body to start fighting off harmful microbes.
