Lemons taste acidic but they leave an alkaline ash upon digestion. The point of combining lemon and baking sodium is to achieve a more balanced sodium (baking soda) to potassium (lemon/lime) ratio which is very good for the human organism. Additionally, it is recommended to take the mixture on an empty stomach, away from meal times so as to eliminate any concerns about acid-alkaline digestive issues while eating meals.
