Limes and other citrus fruits are high in citric acid, and many people think that such high acidity would upset the stomach.

This has been used as a traditional remedy for diarrhea and other stomach issues for generations. The same is true of lemons and other highly citric fruits, but limes seem to be the most palatable.
