Acidic but Not Really Acidic
All this while, I
thought that oranges and lemons are acidic - the notion we
cannot have them on an empty stomach is not quite true after
all. Why such notion?
Well, I just have to look at how my lemon-based dish-washing
liquid gets rid of the grease on my plate! I have even tried to
use a halved lemon to grease off my oily plate. Wow, the lemon
worked wonders - its strong acidic action reminds me what it
could do to my stomach.
Yet, as what I have recently found out (from the articles I have
been reading), that notion is indeed far from the truth. Lemons
and oranges are totally the opposite - given that they are
inside your belly.
Acidic fruits are still acidic in nature. When you put them in
your mouth, the acid will be converted into alkaline substances
in the body. So yes, lemons, oranges and other citrus fruits
(acidic by nature) will turn alkaline when you consume them.
Having an alkaline body is good. If you have acidic body, most
likely you could attract more not-so-nice bodily conditions like
fatigue and bad skin conditions. As people say, an ACIDIC BODY
IS A DISEASE MAGNET. So, that is why I start my juicy mornings
with two freshly squeezed oranges - on an empty stomach.
