How to make a health-promoting Citrus Peel drink

(Updated: January 2023)

Health-promoting lemons
Lemons - the health-promoting super-food!

A simple citrus drink recipe for supporting immune health and detoxification


  1. One lemon, preferably organic (most people can find a lemon tree nearby).

  2. Dandelion and milk thistle (Healtheries "Detox Teabags" will do the job) I prefer teabags because it makes it easier to eat the lemon peel later on.

  3. Lemon and ginger (Healtheries again)

  4. Green tea (these should all be available in most supermarkets or organic stores, either as loose leaf or teabags)

  5. NZ Blackcurrant (1-2 rounded teaspoons per day). (You could mix several teaspoons into the water when preparing the jug of ingredients).

  6. A bottle of Nucell

  7. Water that is preferably fluoride and chlorine-free


  1. Add a sliced lemon or more to a jug of water and keep it in the fridge.

  2. Add a modest serving of the herbs to the jug. These herbs assist the detoxification process.

  3. As an option to give this formula a big boost, especially if you are an athlete or struggling with fatigue then, add a few scoops of either of these: or or

  4. Add a generous dash of Nucell to the jug of water or a spoonful per glass when serving.

  5. Allow the mix to soak overnight so that the teabags and the defrosted lemon skins can infuse the water with their health-promoting oils and other goodness.

  6. Drink this throughout the day. I add it to my drink bottle when exercising. It is refreshing to guzzle down when hot and thirsty.

  7. Eat a slice or two of the lemon now and then. (Soaking the slices for a day or two removes some bitterness).

Handy Tip: Be sure to freeze the lemon (you can store a season's worth this way), defrost it, then slice it up. The freezing breaks the cells of the hard peel, releasing the wonderful nutrients contained within.

Do this about once a week, where you prepare the drink, consume it all, including the peel, over 2-4 days, then have a break of several days, then repeat it.

If you are doing hard physical exercise, you will notice an almost instant improvement in performance and recovery. Make sure you take it before, during and after exercise, plus on your recovery days.

Tooth Enamel

This drink is acidic, so please do not sip it as it could erode tooth enamel. Guzzle down a few times a day. Or, swill a little baking soda or milk about the mouth to neutralise the acidity.

Enamel can and does remineralise if given the right environment. Brush your teeth twice a day. Use an alkalising toothpaste such as one with baking soda in it. Ensure your diet includes calcium and other minerals so that there is plenty of calcium and other minerals in your saliva, even when sleeping. To ensure your nutrient and mineral status is within healthy ranges and balanced, purchase the HTMA test.
