Fruit Juices as Cleansers
We call fruit juices cleansers for specific reasons. Whereas juices made from sprouts, greens, and vegetables are mild cleansers, fresh fruit juices are strong cleansers. Rich in vitamin C, pure liquids, and the acids that give them their tartness, fruits have the ability to scour away waste and harmful bacteria in the tissues of our bodies.
The three most prevalent acids found in fruits are citric acid, tartaric acid, and malic acid. Citric acid is found most abundantly in lemon juice, followed by the juice of the lime, grapefruit, orange strawberry, raspberry, pineapple, peach, and tomato.
Though the right amount of citric acid is a good thing, too much is a bad thing. Excess citric acid in the system can make the blood too acidic. Blood may also become too acidic due to high sugar, fat, or protein intake.
This usually occurs in older people who no longer need to eat the same quantities of food they ate when they were younger, but continue to do so. When the blood becomes to acidic, the body "borrows" the alkaline minerals calcium and magnesium from it's skeletal system and teeth. Eventually, if this condition persists, the bones become so weak that they break due to a minor fall. A diet full of fresh, whole foods will help combat this weakening of the bones.
How much citric acid is enough? The amount that's right for you will be determined, in the long run, by your age and level of activity. Activity helps metabolize citric acid. This is because, like sugars, citric acid is metabolized more quickly and thoroughly with activity.
Generally speaking, younger people metabolize citric acid better and easier than older people. So, unless you are an adult who is quite active physically, it might be a good idea to limit consumption of citrus fruits and juices to three or four six ounce servings per week.
What is the Benefits of Tartaric Acid?
Another important fruit acid is tartaric acid. It is found most abundantly in grapes and pineapples and, to a lesser extent, in many commonly eaten fruits. Louis Pasteur, the French chemist, was the first to prove that this acid inhibits the growth of certain harmful molds and bacteria.
What is the Benefits of Malic Acid?
The fruit acid called malic acid is contained in apples, apricots, bananas, cherries, grapes, lemons, peaches, plums, prunes, and to a lesser degree in most other fruits. It is an excellent antiseptic. It cleanses the intestines, kidneys, liver, and stomach; and is a valuable aid in cleansing intestinal infection or distress. Malic acid also stimulates the appetite.
