lemon juice and digestion
« on: January 14, 2012, 08:54:16 am »
Hi again everyone. I am wondering whether it would be hazardous to health to consume lemon juice daily(and how much)? I am thinking that it will aid digestion and clean out the tract of potentially lethal fecal matter etc. But...I am also thinking that it may create an overly acidic PH of body fluids and possible tooth decay. Would anyone have any advisements as to how much I should or shouldn't drink? And how...

I think as long as its freshly squeezed from lemons, it should be fine!  Most "lemon juice" that you buy pre-bottled in the store is at least pasturized, and at most not actually lemon juice at all but lemon oil, sugar and other nasty ingredients. 
I drink a glass of warm water with a lemon or lime squeezed in it every morning!  It does seem to help get things moving in the digestive department. ;-)

I'd say it can be hard on the teeth.  Try not to let it sit on your teeth, and maybe swish some bone meal or healing clay in your mouth afterward.
