If you have read our articles about the benefits of lemon juice and of baking soda, you probably know they provide great advantages for our health.

But, today we write about the benefits you’ll get by combining these two powerful ingredients.

A Glass of Lemon Juice with Baking Soda – Benefits

Combining lemon juice and baking soda has generated both, excitement and controversy. Its potential to prevent cancer has been at the heart of the debate, although this has been viewed with skepticism. A lot of remedies and foods are labeled “anti-cancer”, particularly those with alkalizing and antioxidant properties. But, just because they possess these features, doesn’t mean they can help people avoid this deadly disease, at least until scientists can find a cure for it.

Lemon and baking soda, as well as other foods like strawberries, tomatoes, grapes, or Quantum Balancing, contain minerals, vitamins, and enzymes that are beneficial in the prevention of diseases in a small part of the population. However, they just help but are not a cure for themselves.

A healthy diet that includes lemon and baking soda is surely beneficial, but it can never prevent diseases 100%. Learn what kind of benefits you’ll get by consuming a glass of lemon juice and baking soda:

1. Alkalizing

Lemon and baking soda combination provide alkalizing effects on the human body. For instance, it helps to fight acidosis in cases our body produces too much acid, or when kidneys aren’t able to eliminate enough acid from the body. This combo is great for kidney care, helping our body eliminate toxins and burn fats.

2. Digestion

One of the many lemon benefits is helping promote digestion. An excellent way to improve your digestion is by mixing a little baking soda in some lemon juice. This mix is a good anti-acid, so it helps fight flatulence. Another benefit of this powerful mix is quick relief from acid reflux.

3. Purifying

If you drink lemon juice and some baking soda in the morning, you will help purify your liver and provide your body with the necessary amount of potassium, vitamin C, and antioxidants.

4. An Excellent Regulator

What does this mean? The lemon-baking soda combination helps regulate the LDL, bad, cholesterol, thus improving cardiovascular health.

How to Use and Who Should Avoid This Remedy

In a glass of warm mineral water, add the juice of half a lemon, and a teaspoon of baking soda, and mix well. Drink this beverage in the mornings on an empty stomach and during detox. Consume it for a period of 2 weeks, and then rest for 2 more. It’s important to make this 2-week rest, as an excessive amount of baking soda can cause alkalosis.

People who suffer from gastritis, heart problems, and hypertension should avoid this remedy because of the sodium levels it contains.

As you can see, this simple remedy provides multiple benefits to our health, which however doesn’t make it a miracle cure. When it comes to its potential against cancer, take it with a dose of skepticism, since so far, studies haven’t proved this.
