Lemon and lime juice help stimulate and regulate the digestive track (which is why it’s so helpful with constipation, heartburn and gas), stimulate bile production, and thin out bile, which allows it to flow more freely. Bile is produced by the liver and ends up in the small intestine to break down lipids (fats) that we’ve consumed.
