Lemon helps to maintain or restore the acid-base balance
The acid-base balance stands for the balance between alkaline and acidifying food. Our modern diet consists largely of foods that are acidifying. These foods allow the acid content in our body to rise above normal and disturb the balance. If our body is acidified, it becomes attractive for the pathogenic organisms, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeasts and parasites. That can cause illness and inflammation in our body.
Although lemons taste sour, they react basically in our bodies. There are few foods that produce so many bases. If you drink a large glass of lemon water every morning, you prevent the balance from being disturbed.
