Does adding Sugar to Lemon Juice Negate Benefits?

by Elizabeth

I read that it is the taste buds 'noticing' the bitter taste of the lemon that triggers the stomach juices. (Apparently this is the reason behind using "Swedish Bitters" before/post meals).

Therefore, would the sweeter taste of sugared lemon-juice water negate the benefits (as far as gastric juices are concerned anyway)?

Thank you for your input & any scientific links for this answer.
