What is lime water?

Browse By

Lime water is exactly what it sounds like: water flavored with juice from a fresh-squeezed lime. The ratio of lime juice to water doesn’t have to be exact. You can use as much or as little of the fruit as your taste buds dictate. If you’re not sure how much lime flavor you’d like menu. Start by cutting the (thoroughly washed) fruit into quarters and squeezing a single wedge into your cup.

If you want to infuse still more citrus-y goodness into your water. Drop the wedge into the water after you’ve squeezed it UFABET

For an even deeper flavor, keep your in the fridge overnight.

Limes vs. lemons

Both lemons and limes fall into the category of citrus fruits. Citrus fruits originate from the Rutaceae family.

And both lemons and limes contain a soluble fiber called pectin, which can be beneficial to heart health. They also have similar nutritional profiles, containing calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamins A, B, C and D.

Although limes and lemons aren’t nutritionally different, limes — as part of the citrus family — can have health benefits. Such as boosting your immune system and helping with micronutrient absorption.

The health benefits that come with staying hydrated are reason enough to make the switch, but the humble lime also packs quite a nutritional punch. As is true of any dynamic duo, the value may be even greater than the sum of its parts.
