WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. - May 4, 2013 - PRLog -- May 4, 2013, West Bloomfield, Michigan –Can a teaspoon of lemon juice in water remove chlorine? Why, yes. Then can that same technology apply to the removal of chlorine and chloramines in the shower? Yes it can. The Water Exchange today announced an agreement with Vitashower Corp of Arcadia, California for the distribution of their unique shower water filter design using vitamin C (ascorbic acid) for removing chlorine and chloramines from shower water. A little known fact is that a squirt of lemon juice to a glass of water will remove chlorine because of the citric acid in the lemon.  Diners can easily remove the chlorine from their glass of water just by asking the server for a slice of lemon.  One squeeze into the glass will neutralize the chlorine. The vitamin C shower filter uses the same technology to safely remove chlorine and chloramines from shower water.  This was demonstrated in two studies by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Ascorbic acid reduction of active chlorine prior to determining Ames mutagenicity of chlorinated natural organic matter (NOM).

and

Ascorbic acid reduction of residual active chlorine in potable water prior to halocarboxylate determination.

One more study worth mentioning, though not directly related, but particular to the reaction of chloramines on our body,  shows the importance of vitamin C. Chloramines (chlorine mixed with ammonia) are used as a disinfectant in many city water supplies across the US including Denver, CO, Jacksonville, FL, Philadelphia, PA, Miami, FL and more.

Vitamin C protects against and reverses specific hypochlorous acid- and chloramine-dependent modifications of low-density lipoprotein.
