Why Fresh Lemon Juice is Critical to the Lemonade Diet

Fresh Lemon Juice

The Fresh Lemon Juice is the MOST CRITICAL component of The Lemonade Diet. If you don’t drink your Lemon Juice Fresh, you will not be getting the vital Enzymes that lose vitality over time, and exposure to light and air.

This leads to 2 of the biggest Master Cleanse Mistakes: Pre-Mixing your Lemonade, or using store bought Lemonade. Both of these DO NOT provide the benefits that you get from drinking your lemon juice fresh. In fact not drinking Fresh Lemon Juice could have dire consequences for those who are critically ill as was explained to me by Master Cleanse Practitioner, Tom Wolohsyn, when I was interviewing him for my Ebook: Successfully Starting The Master Cleanse.

I should note, that the first 3 times I did The Master Cleanse, I pre-mixed my lemonade, and I didn’t have nearly as much energy as I did once I corrected my behavior and drank my lemon juice fresh.

Enzymes in Lemon Juice

Lemon Juice really is a unique juice. It is acidic, but when consumed it has an alkalizing effect on the body because of high levels of magnesium, calcium and potassium. By now you probably realize that nearly all packaged foods are almost completely devitalized; they are “dead”. “Live” food has active, living elements. Dead food has been cooked, and processed and contains only calories –no “living” enzymes. These enzymes break apart and put together cells. Enzymes are technically “alive”, but rather are active or inactive.

The acids in the lemon juice have the ability to break down calcified substances including gallstones and kidney stones. Fresh Lemon Juice also has similar properties as does our saliva and bile which are digestive aids that our bodies produce. This helps with the process of Autolysis which Tom describes as “self-digestion”, or the breaking down of unhealthy cells which our bodies can then use to regenerate itself.

Lemon Juice as a cleaner

Lemon is a natural cleaner. Why do you think all our dish soap started as a lemon variety (now replaced by lemon smelling chemicals), which, is also why it is great for preventing illness from cold or virus that is beginning to set in.

You probably already know, but Lemons are high in vitamin C, and have many other vitamins in lesser amounts such as B-5, B-6, Niacin, Riboflavin, and Thiamine.

I hope you can understand how drinking the Lemon Juice fresh is critical. If you have to pre-mix your lemonade because of work or other lifestyle considerations, then only use the Lemonade Concentrate (which mixes only the fresh lemon juice and the pure maple syrup).

Room temperature, ripened Lemon Juice

Don’t keep your lemons in the fridge. If you buy 50 at a time, take 10 out to ripen, and store the rest in the fridge, making sure to take more out at least a few days before you will juice the lemons. Storing the lemons in the fridge prevents them from ripening. You want ripe lemon juice. Also, the cold puts the enzymes in a sort of hibernation that makes them less active. Enzymes are your friends. Help them help you.

Tell me, did you try The Master Cleanse once using only store bought lemon juice and not Fresh lemon juice?

    Is it ok to juice whole lemons, peel and all, using an electric juicer? Does this provide any different effects than just hand juicing the ‘meat’? Thank you

    is it ok to use ReaLemon lemon juice (bottled from concentrate)? The ingredients are water, concentrated lemon juise, sulphites and lemon oil.

      It’s REALLY BEST to use fresh lemon juice from fresh lemons to get the MAXIMUM benefits & best results. I have done the cleanse many, many times and have used a substitute like the RealLemon juice….but only if I was in a real pinch and used it for just one drink to hold me over. It was basically a situation where it was use that or fall off my cleanse.

      My advice is to be prepared and use real lemons!

    Our refridgerater has a filter for our water, does that do the job or is it better to buy the filter that you recommend? I saw this lemon diet on the Housewives of Beverly Hills, so I looked it up and now I am anxious to try it. I look forward to your reply. Thank you Ronnie

    You are right that cooked food has no living enzymes, but did you know that raw food doesn’t have living enzymes either? Enzymes are not alive. Never were, never will be. Anyone, including Mike, who tells you they are alive, or can be killed, is flat wrong.

      Thanks Jeff, that’s been covered here before. It’s a easy to understand term. Active is a better one. We’ve changed the presence of that term in most post/pages. Thanks for pointing that out here.

    What do you do with the lemons after you have used them for the two table spoons? Do you wrap the reminder in the fridge for the next lemonade or do you leave it out?
