Study participants using the crystallized lemon daily increased their water consumption from an average of 3.69 glasses per day to 6.07 glasses per day – a 61% increase.

The university survey, entitled "True Lemon Report:  The Use of Non-Caloric Water Flavorings with Industrial and Administrative Workers – A 30 Day Pilot Incentive Program" was conducted by Health and Wellness Specialist Eric Durak, M.Sc.

The goal was "to use True Lemon with university employees to see if adding these packets to drinking water would be an incentive to take in more water during the work day." The report noted the many important reasons for drinking more water, including "younger looking skin, reduce joint or muscle pain, flush toxins from your body, increase energy and alertness, improve digestion and elimination, reduce risk of disease and infections, and improve mental clarity and performance."

Durak's report called the pilot survey "a success" and noted that the convenient packets of crystallized lemon "give an alternative to sugary soft drinks, and even cold beverages such as iced mochas or teas, that may contain caffeine or other products."  And that it "is also an interesting substitute for flavored carbonated waters, as it is added to plain water versus a carbonated beverage (which it could be added to)."

True Lemon is crystallized lemon made with 100% natural ingredients. Each packet has 0 calories, less than 1g carbs, and 25% of an adult's U.S. RDA of Vitamin C.
