Nutrition Intelligence – Alkaline Promoters – Is Your Body Acidic? – Part 12

Your body is alkaline by design. We require an alkaline pH balance to function properly. Your body has reserves of alkaline minerals (e.g. calcium) to help maintain the correct pH balance.

When we consume acid forming foods (Click here to download your free chart) our body needs to compensate by borrowing from our alkaline reserves.  This can mean your reserve of calcium can be depleted.  That’s right, your body will actually take calcium from your bones!  If this cycle keeps happening it can lead to osteporosis (a weakened bone structure).

New Aging Theory

Overly acidic body condition will eventually lead to your body breaking down, beyond repair. This is the basis of a new theory on the aging process, that associates aging and degenerative diseases with accumulation of acid waste products in the body.

When acid wastes enter the blood circulation, the blood, in attempting to maintain the correct pH, will store acid wastes in various parts of the body.  Over time these wastes will overburden your system. In an attempt to remedy the situation, your body will retain water to dilute the acid waste, causing increased bodyweight.

We need help to maintain the correct pH. Why because we are eating acid forming foods daily. Also, emotional and physical stress, such as anger, anxiety, insufficient sleep and stress itself can contribute to an overly acidic body.


Cell Rejuvenation For Optimal Health – Part 9 – Daily Regime

Having learned about the things which affect your quality of life how do you protect yourself from the daily onslaught?

Develop a daily regime.

After all we are “attacked” on a daily basis, so it makes sense to protect yourself on a daily basis.

Your simple daily regime should include, the following (follow the links to read more about each):-

  • Drinking plenty of pure energized water – drink Hexagon Water
  • Intake of enzymes to preserve your “personal supply” and create a reserve – if you run out of enzymes you run out of life – drink Bio N-Zymes
  • Detoxification – a toxic body is a sick body – internal detox consume Chlorella – external detox apply Super Kino Plasters
  • A way to increase your alkalinity – an alkaline body is a step towards a healthier you – consume Wheatgrass and Japanese Plum Balls
  • Intake of essential nutrients – consume Chlorella, Spirulina and Stabilized Rice Bran
  • Intake of antioxidants – to fight free radicals which damage your body at a cellular level – consume Stabilized Rice Bran

Cell Rejuvenation For Optimal Health – Part 5 – Acid/Alkaline Imbalance

The Acid /Alkaline Imbalance

We are alkaline creatures who require slightly alkaline blood pH of 7.35 to 7.45 to allow correct oxygenation of our blood so the body’s vital processes can function properly. A reading above or below this range means our body is under stress, leading to illness, disease or worse.

Normal blood pH has a very small window of acid/alkaline pH balance.

How does an acidic pH occur? From the foods we eat, (poor diet and acidic food), water, stress, intake of toxins, poor immune system. An acidic balance decreases the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and decreases the body’s ability to detoxify, leading to an impaired immune system. Plus your reserves of minerals will be depleted as your body tries to compensate for an acidic pH by using up your reserves of alkaline minerals.

It is important to understand that the pH thing is not just a piece of fancy chemistry we don’t need to worry too much about. Here are just three simple reasons why:

  • If our body pH sinks below 4.0. we die.
  • Bacteria, viruses, fungi and all disease-producing organisms flourish in an acidic medium and die in alkaline conditions. The same is true of Cancer cells. So once our body pH starts to drop below neutral, we are opening the door for disease right there.
  • All the many Enzymes required for every function in our bodies will not work under acid conditions.

So if we keep our body fluids alkaline, we are setting up the first line of defence against disease and aging.

What Is Fuelling Your Body? Empty Calories or Natural Superfoods?

Chemicals in processed food? “Empty calories” from high fat, high sugar foods or fast food?

Artifical this? Artificial that? It’s scary when you read the ingredient labels on some processed foods. You would need to be a scientist to even pronounce some of the ingredient names. And “they” expect us to eat it.

IN REALITY, NATURE KNOWS BEST!

Fresh whole foods really are what we should be eating. Nature has provided all the components to make a complete nutritionally balanced diet.

What’s more, because they are not processed they are more affordable, and with minimal packaging, the impact on the environment is lessened.

Nn Wheatgrass Powder

Nn Wheatgrass Powder for Optimal Health – Certified Organic

For optimum health, maintaining a healthy acid-alkaline balance is crucial.

Premature aging and degeneration of bodily functions can be attributed to toxic levels of acidity in the body. This improper balance is due largely to the types of food we eat. Meats, sugars, legumes, grains, and nuts; and processed, refined, baked, and fried foods produce acidic residues after digestion and assimilation. Since many of us eat bread, rice, noodles, chicken, beef, fish, cakes, and more, over time, acid-alkaline imbalance may result in:

  • Impoverished vitality, fatigue and tiredness
  • Muscle and back aches; joint pains
  • Obesity
  • Body odor and bad breath
  • Constipation
  • Dull, dry skin
  • Excessive sweating
  • Premature appearance of wrinkles and lines
  • Headaches
  • Lackluster hair
  • Foul-smelling urine
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Susceptibility to infections
  • Gout

Wheatgrass, from the family of cereal grasses, is a wholesome food with alkaline characteristics to correct and adjust acid-alkaline imbalance and maintain an alkaline state required by cells for optimum health.

Nn Wheatgrass Powder uses organically grown young shoots of wheatgrass harvested when levels of nutrients and plant compounds are at their peak. The production process retains all the vital nutrients – vitamins, alkaline minerals, enzymes, chlorophyll, amino acids, antioxidants and fiber. The easily digestible form allows your body to fully integrate and utilize the health-building nutrients it provides. Fructose, a natural sugar found in fruits and honey, is added to improve its taste.

Nn Wheatgrass Powder is a wholesome food for children, breastfeeding and pregnant mothers. For the obese, nutrient-rich Wheatgrass Powder can assist in weight loss; it discourages overeating because the rapid digestion and assimilation curbs hunger pangs.

Directions: Dissolve one packet in a cup (200 x 250ml) of water or your favorite juice. Do not use hot water as heat destroys the vital nutrients and enzymes. For best results, take
2 – 3 packets daily on an empty stomach. If you experience troublesome symptoms of acidity (fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, etc), you should take more packets daily.

Content: 5 g x 30 packets

Nature’s Restorer of Acid-alkaline Balance
Dr. Ann Wigmore, author of The Wheatgrass Book, has recorded countless testimonies on the alkalizing, cleansing, energizing and building effects of wheatgrass. Fiber-rich wheatgrass contains amino acids, vitamins, alkaline minerals, trace elements, enzymes, antioxidants, chlorophyll and plant compounds. Alkaline minerals in wheatgrass improve the transportation of oxygen, helping body systems function at an optimum level in a highly oxygenated environment. The cleansing and regenerative effects of chlorophyll dislodge acidic waste that clings to cells, tissues and organs and purifies the bloodstream. As a result, you look and feel younger, trimmer and healthier.

Important Enzymes and Antioxidants in Wheatgrass & their Functions

  • Protease – Digests protein into amino acids for repair and rejuvenation
  • Amylase – Breaks down carbohydrates into glucose for increased energy
  • Lipase – Splits fat into fatty acids and glycerol for more efficient metabolic and cellular function
  • Superoxide dismutase (SOD) – Protects cells from free radical damage
  • Catalase – Strengthens resistance and natural defense
  • Cytochrome oxidase – Maintains healthy liver functions
  • Transhydrogenase – Supports vigorous heart muscles for dynamic circulation

Ingredients:
Wheatgrass powder and fructose (Fructose gives fruit its natural sweetness. The amount of fructose used is safe for diabetics. If more than 12 packets are consumed a day, please monitor the blood sugar level)

Does not contain preservatives, chemical additives and stabilizers. No synthetic coloring, flavoring or animal substance added.
