Greens for Life – balance your pH
The majority of people never think about the pH (whether acidic or alkaline) of their body but would be surprised to know how important it is for your general well-being. It has long been recognised that a well-balanced pH will help fight off disease and illness.
Our lifestyles today and the foods we eat do not help at all. The majority of people will find that their bodies are too acidic with all the associated problems and risks that brings.
A neutral pH is 7. Anything less than 7 is acidic, and greater than 7 alkaline. Ideally we want a slightly alkaline body. A simple test of your saliva with litmus papers will show where you are. A pH level of around 7.2 in your saliva two hours after a meal is a good reference point.
Our kidneys maintain the correct levels of sodium, potassium and magnesium. If our bodies are too acidic these electrolytes are used to fight it. These minerals are then taken from our tissues, bones and cells which means they are unable to dispose of waste so efficiently.
We are unable to absorb vitamins so efficiently, toxins build up and the immune system suffers.
Acidity in the body can be caused by the following:
Alcohol and drug use, antibiotics, stress, low fibre intake, not enough or too much exercise, excessive meat intake, processed foods, pesticides and more….
How will it affect my health?
Every person is different but excess acidity has been shown to lead to; tiredness, weight gain, frequent colds, allergic reactions, joint pain, inflammation and ulcers. There is mounting evidence in the longer term it can play a part in the development of cancer, arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis and heart conditions.
What can I do?
The most efficient and effective way to balance your pH is to take a drink made from green vegetables and grasses. These have an abundance of alkaline-forming elements and chlorophyll. Chlorophyll alkalizes the blood.
This why we formulated Greens for Life. The effects are rapid and the benefits immense. Your pH levels will be back at a healthy level with all the associated benefits.
Taken regularly, Greens for Life can change your well-being and health levels considerably.
Eating a well-balanced diet can complement Greens for Life further. Fruits and vegetables contain potassium which helps fight acidity. Try to avoid too much; egg, lentils, oats, rice, white bread, pasta, meat, peanuts, walnuts.
