First, let’s clarify some definitional confusion. Sodium Bicarbonate, Bicarbonate of Soda and Baking Soda are all the same thing and do not have aluminum in them. Baking Powder IS NOT Baking Soda and can contain aluminum, which you should not consume. Read the labels.
As I mentioned in the article I posted on the Blog on May 5th, “One Day in the Life”, I mix the juice of half a lemon, a teaspoon of Sodium Bicarbonate and mix them in a glass of tepid water and drink it every morning before exercising.
There are many studies that show how this combination, particularly sodium bicarbonate, enhances sports performance. One such study that really got my attention was how it improves your performance while doing HIIT (High Intensity Interval Traınıng).
The basic reason is that sodium bicarbonate works to eliminate hydrogen ions and reduces acidity in the blood. Interestingly, even though lemons are acidic, when you consume them or drink their juice, they also have an alkalizing effect on your body.
Given how blood acidity builds up over the course of strenuous exercise, it is not surprising that people have looked at sodium bicarbonate as a performance supplement for a long time. Lemons are a more recent object of interest in the sports world; the fact that you get a good dose of Vitamin-C, which is an antioxidant, means you are also fighting inflammation, caused by destruction of muscle tissue which happens when you do resistance exercises.
Competitive endurance athletes in particular have been including sodium bicarbonate for decades in their own home-brewed pre-workout blends.
On the resistance training side, it is believed that being too acidic can make it hard to build and maintain muscle, loose body fat as efficiently as possible and leads to sub-par gym performance.
Lemon juice also:
*Is of immense benefit to the skin and prevents the formation of wrinkles and acne.
*Helps maintain the health of your eyes and fight against eye problems.
*Aids in the production of digestive juices.
*Helps replenish body salts especially after a strenuous workout.
So, don’t you think it’s a good idea to drink a glass of lemon juice and sodium bicarbonate before exercising AND AFTERWORDS??
Now for something startling on the health side: The combination of lemon juice and baking soda COULD SAVE LIVES.
Researchers have shown that this combination has a 10,000 times stronger effect than chemotherapy? Why was this fact kept as a secret? Let’s just say: BIG PHARMA.
Numerous studies have proven the anti-cancer properties of lemons. Lemons also provide other benefits, including the treatment of cysts and tumors.
A large drug manufacturer claims that 20 laboratory experiments conducted since 1970 showed that:
*Lemon destroyed cancer cells in 12 cancer types.
*Lemon prevented metastasis of cancer cells.
*The combination of lemon extract and baking soda destroyed cancer cells only, without harming healthy cells and tissues.
If possible, one should use organic lemons.
It is very difficult, if not impossible, to suggest to a person with cancer that they should opt for lemon juice and sodium bicarbonate instead of chemotherapy. The choice is theirs.
I thought that giving them an option is the least I could do.
Is lemon juice and sodium bicarbonate a certain solution? Is chemotherapy a certain solution? The answer to both questions is a definite NO.
Instead of having to make such drastic, life threatening decision when you end up sick, isn’t it much better to make very SIMPLE, DOABLE and HEALTHY CHOICES that prevent you from getting sick?
That’s what this Blog is all about: THE ADAPTATION OF A LIFE STYLE that keeps you healthy.
What do I mean by LIFESTYLE?
*What to eat, what NOT TO EAT and when to eat.
*Your activities; exercising, moving around, etc.
*Your mental well- being; stress relief, meditation, tapping, etc.
See you all next time.
