Benefits of Lime
Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inner lining of your esophagus, stomach and/or upper small intestine, causing a lot of abdominal pain. The acid in limes causes an alkaline reaction in the system, reducing gastric acidity.Limes grown or purchased in the States are usually sour. Sweet varieties with less citric acid are more common in Asian regions. Make sure when picking or purchasing that theyre bright green and completely ripe, as those have the most antioxidant benefits. Keep them out of the sun or theyll turn yellow and lose their bright flavor.
