Drinking lemon water is great, but there is a way to take it to a whole other level by adding one household ingredient.
By adding a spoonful of baking soda into the mix, you can actually protect yourself against chronic inflammation and cancer.
How it Works
Lemons contain compounds called limonoids, which have the ability to fight breast cancer cell proliferation by inducing apoptosis (1).
These compounds also work against other hormone-sensitive cancers, like cervical or ovarian cancer (2).
Roughly 11 different limonoids contribute to fighting the disease, killing cells in as little as 12 hours (3).
Studies have shown that consuming four or more 150-gram portions per week of citrus fruit decreased the risks of throat cancer by 58%, oral/pharyngeal cancer by 53%, stomach cancer by 31 percent, and colorectal cancer by 18%.
Another study found that women who had never experienced hormone replacement therapy and consumed roughly 75 grams daily of citrus fruits experienced a 22% reduction in breast cancer risk (4).
The high vitamin C content of these fruits also improves cancer survivability, fights aggressive colorectal cancers, and suppresses tumor growth.
The fruit also has the ability to:
- Lower cholesterol
- Fight inflammation
- Kill harmful bacteria
- Regulate high blood pressure
- Combat depression and stress
- Detox your kidneys and liver
Case studies have found that baking soda can effectively reverse late-stage prostate cancer and prevent cancer recurrence.
To help prevent cancer, combine 2 teaspoons of freshly squeezed organic lemon juice and half a teaspoon of baking soda in a tall glass of water and drink it on an empty stomach before breakfast.
