Alkaline Balance #8 – Lemons

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Lemons are a great alkaline promoting food. Many people ask, “How can lemons be alkaline when they are an acidic fruit?”

The answer is, lemons are alkaline forming in the body. It’s what’s left over after digestion has taken place that counts. After passing through the stomach (and stomach acid) and being hit with enzymes, what’s left is an alkaline ash. Think of fire wood being burned up, what’s left after the digestive fire?

Typically this is dependent on the mineral content of the food, as well as other factors.

Anyway, lemons can be added to water (you know the stuff you’re supposed to be drinking a bunch of) or squirt some lemon juice on your salad or other tasty food.

    I do believe all of the ideas you’ve presented
    in your post. They are very convincing and will
    definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for starters.
    Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

    How can I fake a mold/dust allergy to an allergist?If I test positive to a mold/dust allergy, I can get much nicer housing and cut through a lot of the red tape at my college which keeps people from getting preferential housing like wellness housing. Help?

    Bret,As an FYI, Verkhoshansky reviewed these same illustrated exercises during my time studying in the USSR. Former USSR weightlifter and Coach, Gregorio Goldstein also reviewed these same exercises with S&C Coach Johnny Parker and I during the time we spent with him here in the U.S.. Both of these men felt there was value with the performance of these exercises (when deemed appropriate) during the training of athletes.Rob Panariello

    As far as I know, freezing does not destroy enzymes, only heating. Fresh is always best, frozen would be second best.

    What about juicing fresh lemons and freezing them in ice cube trays then transferring them to freezer containers to be used a cube at at time? Does the freezing destroy the enzymes??? Thank you!

    Taking in too much fresh lemons can also harm the teeth, so all good things in moderation! It’s real acid going through the mouth.

      I remember being at a wedding, and drinking water with lemon squeezed in. I could feel sensitive spots in my teeth by the end of the night. Rinsing the mouth with water, better yet alkaline water can help get the acid of the lemon off the teeth.

    Minute maid lemon juice found in the frozen juice section is real lemon juice.

      It may be real lemon juice, but unless I am mistaken, it is almost certainly processed and pasteurized. – Bye bye enzymes.

      I always favor fresh over processed anyday.

    Anything but fresh is out. Here is a lazy way to drink fresh lemon juice.

    Get a 10-cup pitcher w Brita filter, fill it w water and keep it in the fridge. So u always have cool great tasting water, no need to mess w ice.

    In the morning or before going to sleep, pour this water from the pitcher into a glass. Take a lemon and slice it in 2 halves. Squeeze each half into the glass by hand. Enjoy!

    No need to use any machines and wash em afterwards. The whole “operation” takes about 10 seconds.

    No reconstituted is not the same as fresh, not even close.

    Not sure if anyone’s still maintaining this site, but I have a question about drinking lemon juice. This is something I’ve been doing for the last short while, and I’d like to know if reconstituted lemon juice has the same health benefits as using fresh / squeezed lemon juice. I don’t have time to squeeze lemons, and I can easily pick up a bottle of reconst. lemon juice from the supermarket.

    One website I saw mentioned that reconstituted lemon juice also includes some preservatives, modified flavor and color, etc. Another website mentions that reconstituted lemon juice provides more citrate than fresh lemons…

    Would love to hear your comments on that.

    Thanks,
    Kevin
