Hello,
I am doing a presentation on lemon this year and one of the parts we are exploiting is the fact that although lemon is acid, it has an alcaline effect on the body.
I have done alot of research on the internet but I can\'t find what I am looking for. Can someone please explain to me in about a page how this phenomenon occurs (with a few chimical explanationS but not too complicated!!)
Thank you
PS: Please answer ASAP

Hi!

Citric acid (which is responsible for the acidic taste of lemons) is neutrally metabolized through citric acid cycle and respiratory chain to water (H2O) and carbo dioxid (CO2) which will be exhaled by the lungs. Lemons are generally alcaline, because of their high content of basic minerals.
I hope these informations will help you.
Kind regards

Thank you for the information
Is the citric acid cycle you are talking about the Krebs cycle?
