We are all aware of the fact that the consumption of a glass of water with half a lemon immediately after we wake up can provide extraordinary effects for our health. Namely, this practice will alleviate heartburn, balance your pH levels, boost digestion and stimulate the liver.
This amazing drink has one disadvantage- its harmful effect on the dental health. The acid in the lemon can damage the teeth enamel. Teeth enamel is vital for the dental health, as it protects the dentin, and if eroded, numerous other problems will arise. It is even worse when it is combined with warm water.
This is due to the fact that the chemical reaction is even accelerated due to the additional heat.
Yet, there are some useful tricks to reduce the damage, like brushing the teeth before consumption, using a straw or rinsing with filtered water immediately after consumption.
The great trick is to use lemon essential oil.
This essential oil is produced from the rinds of the lemon, and not its juice. This essential oil is not acidic, as its pH is neutral. Interestingly, 3,000 lemon rinds are needed for the production of 1 kg of lemon essential oil! Furthermore, the oil is better absorbed than the lemon juice.
Hence, all you need to do is to add a few drops of lemon essential oil to a glass of water and consume this drink regularly!
This habit will help you in the case of acne, heartburn, respiratory issues, gallstones. It will also lead to mental clarity, it will energize your body, reduce inflammations and stimulate your metabolism.
