Frequently Asked Questions:
Why would I buy True Lemon instead of a fresh lemon?
David Schleider, who spent three years creating and perfecting True Lemon, is a chef by training and a long time lemon-lover. However, David found that he was often frustrated with lemons: they are inconsistent in taste, messy to use, spoil easy, and inconvenient. And from a chef's point of view, they are labor-intensive and David often wanted the taste of fresh lemons without adding unnecessary liquid.
David believed other people had to be equally frustrated with lemons and he believed he could do what no one else had done up to that point: find a way to duplicate authentic, fresh-squeezed lemon taste but in a crystallized, shelf-stable manner that was convenient to use any time, anywhere. And, after a lot of hard work and long nights, David did just that.

I have kidney stones and my urologist recommended that I drink water with lemon in it every day. Does True Lemon have the same properties as lemon juice for this condition?
First, True Citrus always recommends that you speak to your healthcare provider when considering health solutions for specific conditions.
Second, while True Citrus has never run any trials to test True Lemon's effectiveness in helping to treat kidney stones, a urologist in North Carolina conducted a month-long study of some of his kidney stone patients. Half of his patients used fresh lemon and the other half used True Lemon (the doctor provided the True Lemon.) After a month, he looked at pH balance and found the results were exactly the same for both groups of patients. So, True Lemon had the same effect as fresh lemon, but the patients using True Lemon thought it was more convenient and easier to use than fresh lemon.
Finally, True Citrus has heard from many people who have kidney stones and have successfully incorporated True Lemon into their treatment program. Again, True Citrus always recommends discussing treatment options with your healthcare provider.

Except in rare instances when a recipe actually needs the moisture of the juice and not just the lemon flavor, you can add True Lemon directly into your other ingredients. In the instance of Lemon Sponge Cake, for example, where you need both the lemon taste and the moisture the juice provides, you would add the equivalent amount of water. (For example, if the recipe called for 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, you would add four packets of True Lemon and two tablespoons of water.)

Keep Your Body and Brain Happy with Water and True Citrus
Like a beached dolphin, we humans can’t survive long without water. That’s because our bodies are two-thirds water, and our brains are up to 78 percent water.
True Citrus products can help with the quest to keep your body and brain hydrated and happy. True Lemon, True Lime and True Orange are not only great-tasting, all-natural water enhancers, they’ve also been proven to increase water consumption.
Your body on water
Water is the main ingredient in your body’s fluids. Cells and even bones contain water.
Most of your blood is water and water is in lymph. Blood and lymph are how the body carries food and oxygen to cells, and how waste is removed.
Water carries digestive enzymes around your digestive system.
Water keeps your internal temperature steady. Water (perspiration) helps cool your body.
Water is in the fluids that keep your joints moving smoothly.
The mucus that keeps your eyes, ears, nose and throat moist is mostly water.
In short, your body uses a lot of water and needs to take in lots of it. Adult bodies use up around 8.45 cups a day.
Your brain on water
Like the body, the brain is mostly water and needs plenty of hydration to function at its best.
Scientists in the United Kingdom who checked brain scans of riders after an hour and a half of cycling found that brain tissue had shrunk away from the subjects’ skulls. And research shows that dehydration not only affects the size of the brain but also how it works. Brain cells need a balance between water and various elements to operate, and being dehydrated disrupts the balance and makes brain cells less efficient. Without enough water, gray matter has to work harder to process information, and we have more difficulty with short-term and long-term memory and keeping our attention focused.
Function your best with plenty of water and 0-calorie True Citrus
It’s easy to get back up to speed if you’ve been dehydrated. Try to drink at least six cups of water a day (since some of the foods you’ll eat will contain water), and more if it's hot or you've been exercising. Many people have found adding 0-calorie True Lemon, True Orange or True Lime to your water bottle or glass can make drinking adequate amounts of water a pleasure rather than a chore.
