Yesterday I was interviewed on the health effects of lemon water for an article at NU.nl. However, except maybe for seamen with scurvy a few centuries ago, lemon juice is no superfood. A glass of lemon water in the morning won’t help you burn fat or detox your body. Fortunately, there is also isn’t much harm in drinking lemon juice. It is low in sugar so it’s a healthy alternative over other fruit juices.
