Lemon and Baking Soda Miraculous Combination
It’s well-known that lemon is a great anti-carcinogenic. There are also plenty of other health benefits to lemons. For example lemon is great at taking care of cysts on tumors. There have been recent studies that show that lemons, along with other citrus fruits, are able to prevent cancer. Adding baking soda to the mix also helps to balance the pH levels of your body and prevent cancer from spreading. One study in particular out of Europe showed that eating four or more 150-gram portions of citrus fruits could reduce your chances of developing cancer by up to 50%. The ultimate lemon and baking soda combination is laid out below .
What you Need
- 1 organic lemon
- 1 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate baking soda
- 8 ounces of hot, but not boiling, filtered water
- One teaspoon of organic honey (Optional for taste)
It’s pretty easy to make the drink. Just mix together the teaspoon of baking soda and the juice from the lemon into the water, stir it up, and drink it. You should consider having this drink around three times a day to get the most out of it. The honey can add some variety to the drink and help make it a little more potent.
It’s important to note that if you’re going to try this drink for yourself then you really need to be using organic lemons. They are much more effective than non-organic lemons. That is to say lemons that are grown using fertilizers and other chemicals. If anything these chemicals could also damage your health. So keep an eye out for organic lemons, buy a water filter and some baking soda, and take back control of your body with this lemon and baking soda miraculous combination!
Other Benefits of Lemon
As mentioned before there are plenty of other benefits to lemons. One of the other powerful health benefits of lemon is that lemon is antimicrobial. This means that it protects you from a number of bacterial and fungal infections. It’s also great for taking care of parasites and worms, helps regulate your blood pressure, fights depression and reduces stress and nerves. And you thought it was only good for keeping your kitchen clean!
* While the study from Europe didn’t show that lemons had an effect on breast cancer there was a study out of America that suggested grapefruit did. It showed that women who ate around 75 grams of grapefruit a day saw a reduction in breast cancer risk of 22%. It’s worth noting that the effectiveness of citrus was similar in both studies, leading to a suggestion that 525-600 grams of citrus fruits could be considered the minimum amount you need for the cancer protection benefits (1) .
