Mint is a soothing herb that promotes digestion and soothes the stomach. It is also a natural diuretic and has been used to relieve irritable bowel syndrome and colitis. Limes are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C which neutralize free radicals. Vitamin C has the ability to breakdown histamines which alleviates seasonal allergy and asthma symptoms. Limes also have an antibiotic effect; in fact, lime juice was used in West African villages to protect against cholera.
