To live vigorously and luxuriantly, to flourish

Limes

Limes are a powerhouse source of vitamin C and flavonoids. These compounds  work to fight infection, fight free radicals, and even serve to make limes a disinfectant. These compounds are also responsible for the rejuvenating effect limes can have on your skin.

Limes will stimulate the production of saliva, aiding in the very first step of digestion that happens in your mouth. Then the essential oils found in limes will help to stimulate the production of bile and other stomach acids, further aiding the process of digestion.

Limes can help to clean out the digestive tract, which is useful in cases like constipation or other bowel issues where things are not moving along smoothly.
