Drinking Large Amounts of Lemon Juice

Patient: Is it safe to drink large amounts of 100% lemon juice? I recently started drinking lemon juice and enjoy the taste, however I’m concerned about health risks.

 

 

Doctor: Lemon juice, because of its vitamin C and citric acid content has reported benefits for helping to strengthen the gums a nd teeth, digestive issues, relief of symptoms from the common cold.While there are no reported toxic effects, excess amount of anything will have negative consequences.  As we often suggest a diet with variety and moderation, the same holds true for liquid nutrients.
