Homemade Raspberry Limeade

Is Drinking Limeade Good For You?

Lime juice acts as a digestive and a detoxifying agent and helps in cleaning the liver leading to better digestive health. Limes are also a rich source of vitamin C and protects the body from Immune system deficiencies. While the benefits of citrus are wonderful, it is not good to consume a lot of refined sugar – which limeade contains.  So drink only on occasion.
