    Awesome article. You’re spot on about the benefits of drinking lemon water. Just curious to find out if you’ve tried True Lemon? True Lemon is essentially 100% natural crystallized lemon that comes in a packet just like those little sugar packets you see on the tables at restaurants.

    If you’re interested in giving it a try, shoot me an email at taylor @ truelemon . com (minus the spaces) and I’ll send you some samples! Also check out our website here: http://bit.ly/lC9tM
