Why not just buy a bag of lemons and squeeze a wedge into each glass of water? More pure, likely cheaper, more vitamins, and more natural. Plus, lemons are great to have in the house to use as a condiment or make salad dressings with.

1/2 a lemon juice plus 1 glass water is a good home remedy for indigestion. Uou'd think it was acidic, but lemon juice turns alkaline during the digestion process, so it helps.

2-4 packets daily that you are adding to a cup or bottle of water, should in no way be excessive or dangerous. Aren't you supposed to be mixing 1 packet with 1 (20 ounce) bottle of water? Is this what you are dong?

I would think that this is more expensive than using lemon juice???

Hi folks,
I'm not a big fan of the taste of water, so I put lemon in it, but that gets pricey. I recently found True Lemon - its basically cold pressed lemon with citric acid (all natural) in a packet. So far I love, maybe too much, I use between 2-4 packets a day.

I read online that its healthy, but overdosing can be bad.. Anyone know what is a safe dose, and if taking it every day is ok? I don't want to do more harm than good.

Thanks
