Lemons have the highest concentration of citrate among all citrus fruits. Citrate is a natural inhibitor of kidney stone formation. Drinking four ounces of reconstituted lemon juice in two liters of water daily is suggested for reducing stone formation in patients prone to producing kidney stones.

  • 1 cup of lemon juice (4-5 lemons)
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 1 cup of honey

Pour 1 cup of boiling water onto the 1 cup of honey and stir (allow to cool).
