Our Members Asked:
Can lemon juice, lemonade, or other juices reduce my chances of getting kidney stones?
Answer:Yes, lemon juice can help reduce the risk of kidney stones. However, research suggests that other beverages, or supplements, may be preferable.

Also, be aware that acidic beverages such as lemon juice can erode tooth enamel, although there are steps you can take to reduce their effects on teeth. Sign in for the details >>
