Why you should drink water with baking soda and lemon juice

The combination of lemon juice and baking soda at the same time is a particularly powerful means of alkalizing the body. The pH goes up, the presence and growth of pathogens are considerably counteracted, the gastric juice recovers, and the immune system receives a strong boost due to a large amount of vitamin C in the lemon, which helps the body to help clean up the pathogens.

Both lemon juice and baking soda have anti-cancer properties

Several tests have shown that a low pH (high acidity) of the body promotes the growth of pathogens and cancer cells.


Lemon is one of the most powerful detoxifying foods available. Lemon juice has an anti-bacterial and antiviral effect, promotes digestion, strengthens the immune system, improves your skin, restores acid balance, promotes weight loss, prevents arteriosclerosis, prevents kidney stones, promotes oxygen uptake in the blood, gives more energy and helps to reduce stress.Β The juice itself is very acidic, but nevertheless has a de-acidifying effect on the body, thanks to the considerable amount of minerals.

Lemons contain a lot of fiber, vitamin C, powerful antioxidants, and several anti-carcinogenic substances.

How to drink?

  • Put the juice of half a lemon together with half a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass with a little water, let it fizz for a while and then fill with warm water.
  • Lemon essential oil: 5 drops
  • Take this on an empty stomach (or 3 hours after a meal) and only eat one hour later, so that the heartburn is acidic enough to digest food.

With kidney complaints and/or high blood pressure you should not drink the salt, but with stomach complaints, you can. Do not brush your teeth in the hour after this drink !!

Do not use this drink daily, but regularly

Stay healthy
