An overly acidic body is more prone to disease than an alkaline body.
The lifestyles many people live today are more conducive to an acidic body than an alkaline body: diets high in processed foods, sugar, coffee, artificial sweeteners, alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, stress, and excessive work demands, all contribute to an overly acidic body.
For optimal health and wellbeing it is important to ensure that the percentage of alkaline foods and beverages ingested is greater than acidic ones. A good balance to aim for is 80% alkaline and 20% acidic.
Getting your daily greens is a great way to alkalinise the body, along with some meditation and a good dose of love, laughter and good vibes.
The easiest way to get a good dose of daily greens is by drinking green juices or smoothie blends using high density nutritional superfoods such as wheat and barley grass , chlorella , and spirulina , or a powerful greens combination , and if you want to jazz it up with a bit more zing or flavour, add some fresh lemon or watermelon, both of which are highly alkaline forming in the body. Couple this with a predominantly plant-based diet high in vegetables and fruits, and you're on the right track to achieving a more alkaline, healthier body.
