Does using lemon make the stomach acidic?

Lemon is acidic in nature, with a pH of around 2. However, when consumed, lemon can have an alkalizing effect on the body. This is because lemon contains citric acid, which is weak and can be metabolized by the body easily. Once metabolized, citric acid becomes bicarbonate, which has an alkaline effect on the body and can help to neutralize excess stomach acid. So, while lemon is acidic in its natural state, it may help to balance the acidity levels in the stomach when consumed.
