7. No More UTIs
And speaking of agonizing conditions, urinary tract or bladder infections are incredibly painful as well. It’s honestly like peeing tiny knives when you have one, and unfortunately, they are easy to contract. One way to minimize the occurrence of these infections is to keep your urine alkaline. Though lemons are acidic in their whole form, citric acid produces alkalizing byproducts when it is digested.
Daily lemon water helps maintain an alkaline-leaning pH in the urinary tract. It doesn’t affect the pH in your bloodstream, however. Your kidneys do that work, and diet is not connected to the process. Don’t be taken in by claims that lemon water can alkalize your whole system.
