Why You Should be Drinking Water with Lemon

Lemons for lemon waterI remember reading in a health book that drinking pure water with lemon squeezed in it was one of the healthiest beverages you can drink. The primary benefit  that I am aware of is the wonderful alkalizing properties of the lemon juice. By having lemon squeezed in your water you create a beverage that raises your body’s pH. Put simply, having a low pH (or being Acidic) is not a healthy place to be. Our bodies do not function nearly as well when they are acidic. They are more susceptible to sickness, disease, fatigue, etc.

Jethro Kloss reported in his book Back To Eden:

“The medicinal value of the lemon is as follows: It is an antiseptic, or is an agent that prevents sepsis [the presence of pathogenic bacteria] or putrefaction [decomposition of tissue]. It is also anti-scorbutic, a term meaning a remedy which will prevent disease and assist in cleansing the system of impurities.”

    I don’t understand why lemon in water has an alkalizing effect, when lemon contains citric acid. The water certainly tastes more acidic. I’m fairly sure water has a more-or-less neutral pH, so surely squeezing lemon into it acidifies it, if anything. Can anyone explain this?

    Anthony, it’s about how your body metabolizes what it takes in. Lemon IS acidic on it’s own and in your mouth, but once your body metabloizes the chemical structure changes. So, it’s a good idea to brush your teeth after lemon water, but once in the body you can be sure it’s alkali.
