No, lemons are acidic and this acidity in lemons has been shown to increase the fat absorption in the stomach and intestines. Lye solution contains both lactic acid and lactic acid-producing enzymes. Once the acidity of the lye solution starts to increase, the lemons begin to form a sour sour-tasting liquid (and you should probably rinse). A common myth is that if you consume too much water (too much carbonated water), your stomach will swell and you will have trouble absorbing nutrients. This is not the case – you do not need to drink as much water if you don’t want to, and if you start having trouble absorbing nutrients you can try doing a few other supplements to try and alleviate the issue (such as taking a vitamin water supplement for extra calcium).
Is drinking the lemon juice in small amounts really harmful?
Not necessarily, there is evidence to show that this type of juice consumption can increase the ability of fats to absorb into the body. I do not recommend the consumption of this type of juice, and to make it perfectly safe it takes only 1/8th of the 100mL of lemon juice to provide an estimated 250mg of fat absorption.
Is this type of juice good for you?
As stated above, this type of juice does have some calories, so it should always be consumed with the meals or even after eating. However, studies have shown that it is effective to consume this type of sugar as part of a mixed meal, as it helps provide a quick energy boost when eating fast carbs/high sugar (e.g. white bread or white rice with lots of extra sugar) foods. This is important to remember as your body will convert any sweetener into fat, so while this juice is a calorie dense beverage, it should not be consumed as an energy source. While there is some evidence to show that increasing the amount of water in your diet will help you eat more healthy and calorie dense foods – especially when looking at calories, your body will actually get more protein and fat if you use water to break down the nutrients.
