Diet sodas make you gain weight...but why!? How can something called “diet” still be so bad for you? What do acid reflux and bone health have in common? Why did that steak you ate for dinner give you heartburn when your friend who got the salad is doing just fine?
This great video from Wellness Works answers these questions and many more!
By now, you’ve probably heard us talk about how True Citrus products can help improve your water intake. It’s a great way to add flavor to water, without adding sugar or calories. We love to drink it and hope you do, too! But why is water so important for your health anyway? And just how much water should you be drinking?
The Mayo Clinic points out that water is essential to almost everything your body does. Without proper hydration, your liver and kidneys can’t run at full steam, allowing toxins to build up in your system. Yuck! Feeling too achy to work out? Water is also essential to joint and circulatory health. Dehydration can even affect your brain chemistry, causing headaches and slowed mental activity.
The perks of lemon water on the body are endless. On top of being an easy calorie burner (and let's face it, who doesn't LOVE the idea of sipping into fitness?!), lemon and water help flush out toxins in your system and have clarifying actions in your body that stimulate everything from weight loss to hair health and even clearer skin, here’s how:
· Skin: Lemon water cleans toxins out of your body. Toxins in the body cause breakouts and lemon water clears those toxins out, and well, your skin can't look healthy if your body is holding onto toxins! So drink up and glow!
· Digestion: If your stomach is irritated, mix lemon with hot water. Lemon juice acts as a liver tonic and eases digestion.
We’re major Jillian Michaels fans and are proud that she’s a True Citrus fan as well (she’s tweeted her love for us!). But, never did think we’d be so moved by her new TV show, Losing it with Jillian.
Each week, Michaels moves in with one family and gives them the tools they need to live a healthier lifestyle – emotionally and physically. The road is bumpy and filled with tears, breakdowns, and finally, resolutions, but serves as a major testament to what happens when people see that someone cares and that there’s light at the end of the tunnel. It’s truly touching. Do you watch it? We’d love to hear your thoughts on the show!
What do you call The Today Show mixed with Martha Stewart, lobster and lemons!? Awesome, tasty, and of course, organized! Martha Stewart was on The Today Show yesterday to discuss her mouth-watering tips on how to prepare a quick and easy stovetop clambake!

Hint #2: Leave the lemons in the store and add True Lemon!
Can’t wait to make this over the weekend…we’re just oozing with excitement!
It’s summer time. It's hot. And humid. And there’s nothing more refreshing than drinking down a cold glass of water with lemon after enduring the heat. Unfortunatly, according to Today's Dr. Nancy Snyderman, that little wedge of lemon restaurants put in your glass of water is could be covered in a lot of germs. Why risk getting sick this summer, when there's an easy solution? True Lemon!
