Juicing and the importance of the alkaline/acid connection
I use my juicer 2 to 3 times per week to easily consume an abundance of important raw nutrients. Drinking your fruits and vegetables in a concentrated form is wonderful! Each and every single one of us needs to consume some raw sources of food daily and juicing provides that.
But why is it important for our health and what is the connection with the alkaline/acidity levels in our body?
The blood in our body is a key regulator and indicator of our overall health. Blood transports oxygen and many important nutrients into each and every cell in our body and in order for our blood to perform its job properly, it needs to be maintained in a very specific pH range of 7.36 - 7.44 which is Alkaline. Deviating from this range can have dire consequences which can result in illness and diseases.
Even though our bodies have a natural mechanisms to eliminate acid, extra acidity from a poor diet can make our insides run awry. Processed foods, Sugars, Starches and Grains, Aspartame, High Doses of Animal Protein, and Caffeine are all very, very acidic.
Cancer, for example, thrives in an acidic environment.
So how can you bring your pH levels back to normal levels and into an alkalized state and to SUPERCHARGE YOUR LIFE? Through the magic of consuming FRUITS AND VEGETABLES in its most natural form. In fact, green vegetables are the most alkaline foods which is why it is so important to have daily.
The importance of alkalizing the body leads me to my morning juicing rituals. This morning I put together a combination of BEETS, CARROTS, KALE, CUCUMBER, GRAPEFRUIT, STRAWBERRY, PINEAPPLE, and CELERY to start the day.
Alkalizing your body will lead to more energy, feeling more vibrant, it will reduce bloating and water retention, improves skin and skin conditions, will lead to better moods, it will help with allergies, strengthen hair and nails, helps with joint pain, and betters digestion.
The consistent consumption of natural food sources will do wonders to improve the quality of your life in the long run. Supercharge your health by alkalizing your body with something as simple as juicing.
