Many nutritionists and health experts recommend drinking lemon water before breakfast for better health. I would add that lime water might be the better alternative . I also suggest cooking with lime juice often. Both lemons and limes have significant benefits. Lemons help keep your body hydrated and help flush toxins. Lemons and limes also provide calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium and vitamins A, C and B complex, antioxidants, pectin fibers, carbohydrates, trace proteins and help fight pathegens.
