Can lemon water be substituted with lime water
by Mahmūd Sylla
Is that 2 ounces of lemon?
It is quite difficult to find fresh lemons here in town, so I ask can lime water also give the health benefits of lemon water?
Is it advisable to take lime in tea?
And is half of this lemon (picture) equals 1 ounce and the full being 2 ounces?
Mahmūd, yes, you can substitute lime water for lemon water and get similar benefits.
I have compared the similarities and differences of lemons vs limes on this page: Benefits of Lemons and Limes
I believe it is beneficial to add lime juice to tea once or twice a day. A small amount goes a long way. No need to overdo it.
The ounces of lemon juice you get from each lemon depends a lot on the size of the lemon and how juicy they are. There is no way to tell for sure without measuring it.
In general, larger lemons will produce about 2 ounces of lemon juice.
