I went through a period like that once but it was with lemons. I was working out 2 - 3 hours a day back then so I thought it might be my body needed to acidity or maybe even the vitamin C. Neither explanation seemed to be the case in the long run.

I found this on the eHow web site:
Lemons and limes are the winners in the citrus acidity count. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) can comprise up to 32 percent of the fruits' weight. Lemon juice contains 187 percent vitamin C. Citric acid makes up 5 percent to 6 percent of the fruits' content. Lemons contain approximately 3 percent pantothenic acid. Fresh lime juice contains 121 percent vitamin C and 1 percent pantothenic acid.

  Lemons are good for you, and detoxifying, full of vitamin C, and good for fighting heat exhaustion, etc.
   Just make sure to brush yr teeth afterwards~
