5 benefits of adding this to the water you drink

DID YOU KNOW?
Approximately 66% of the human body consists of water? It’s true. The amount of water in the body of an average adult would fill almost 19 two-liter bottles. WOW! That’s a lot of H2O! Most people do not get enough water during the day to sustain a healthy functioning body, and causes cholesterol to stick to and build up on your arterial walls, increasing the risk of heart disease.

    I believe that lemons are acidic (citric acid) rather than alkaline. Since acids & bases occupy opposite ends of the same pH scale (and neutralize each other), a given product cannot be both.

    1. Thanks Roger! It’s actually true that if you took some pH paper and tested lemon juice it would test acid, but once the lemon juice is metabolized in the body, the inherent alkalizing mineral salts contained in the lemon juice (and the bicarbonates that it pulls into the blood during digestion) leaves a residue of alkaline ash in the bloodstream. Also because of their low sugar content, lemons and limes do not ferment in the blood. The most important thing to note is not what the pH of the food is in its natural state, but rather the effect the food has on the body. Because of its very low sugar content and high alkaline mineral content, lemons actually have an alkalising effect on the body.
