Q: Why do you need to use a straw with lemon/salt water?
A: The use of water with a bit of lemon in the case of Adrenal Fatigue can be very helpful for most, because it provides a bit of Vitamin C on a slow but sustained basis. The problem is that gums can be sensitive to this because of the ascorbic acid in the lemon. For those who have this problem, which may not arrive or can arrive after prolonged use of lemon water, you can use a straw to bypass the gums and go straight to the gastrointestinal tract. Alternatively, you can rinse your mouth out after drinking the water.
