1.

Welcome to the world of lemon water! While it may seem like a healthy choice, drinking too much can have some serious side effects. Let's explore them together.

Slide 1: Dehydration. Lemon water is a natural diuretic, meaning it makes you pee more. This can lead to dehydration if you're not drinking enough water to compensate.

3.

Slide 2: Tooth enamel erosion. The citric acid in lemon can erode the enamel on your teeth, making them more susceptible to cavities and sensitivity.

Slide 3: Heartburn and acid reflux. Lemon water can increase the production of stomach acid, leading to heartburn and acid reflux. Not so refreshing now, is it?

Slide 4: Upset stomach. Too much lemon water can upset the delicate balance of your stomach's pH levels, causing bloating, cramping, and discomfort.

6.

Slide 5: Skin irritation. The high levels of citric acid in lemon water can irritate your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin. Stick to drinking it, not applying it topically.

Slide 6: Interference with medications. Lemon water can interact with certain medications, such as blood pressure and diabetes medications, causing potential harm.

Slide 7: So, how much is too much? It's recommended to limit your lemon water intake to one glass a day, and always dilute it with water to reduce the acidity.
