Benefits of an Alkaline Diet

Hi ladies!

We all know that keeping our bodies healthy, keeps our immune system happy. Having a good balnaced PH in our blood, keeps us away from disease, and illness, and you can keep that immune system strong by following a strong Alkaline Diet. Alkaline rich foods give your body the important minerals that it needs to keep you functioning at your highest level. Balance is the most important key when trying to adjust to this type of lifestyle. The Alkaline Diet is not a fad, its a way of life, and Im the first to admit, that since I switched over 6 monthes ago, I have never felt better.

The PH in our blood is how acidic or alkaline it is, and our bodies PH needs to stay more alkaline to keep our immune system healthy and happy. That is what prevents us from getting sick or getting a virus right? it all comes down to our bodies PH. The great alkaline foods include:

  • wholesome fruits
  • vegetables
  • herbs
  • nuts
  • herbal teas
  • wheatgrass
  • spirulina

This is just the name of a few. There is a whole array of alkaline forming foods out there, and it truly is important to eat atleast 60-80% alkaline, and 20-40% acid, ( if you truly need acid forming foods). I know we all are in situations where we are at a gathering , or function, and those are the foods served.

Acid Forming foods are the foods including, grains, beans, meats, dairy, fast-food, pesticide ridden foods, processed foods that have horrible ingredients added to them ( which these foods include all the middle aisles in the grocery store. Acid forming foods are constantly compromising our immune systems, which in turn makes us more suseptible to illness and disease. Its best to keep these foods to a minimum because believe me they are not doing our bodies any justice at all. 

You always want to try to keep your body at a slightly alkaline PH of 7.3.This is very important, and can be done with adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to your daily diet .

Great benefits of the alkaline diet are :

  • Better moods, and More calmness
  • less anxiety
  • higher energy levels
  • fat loss ( around the midsection)
  • better focus and concentration
  • glowing skin
  • less sickness
  • anti-aging. ( you defintely feel at the top of your game) Many well known actresses follow this diet including Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Aniston, and Gwenyth Paltrow to name a few. I started using the The Super Elixir, about 3 monthes ago, and Im not kidding when I say this, It’s the best super powder on the market. Just two teaspoons daily, and I cant tell you the way i feel since using this amazing product. Its purely alkalizing, and has 42 amazing ingredients and superfoods included, which help every single organ in your body. If you are curious on how to adjust to a more alkalizing diet, here are some tips:

  • Try some deep breathing exercises daily

  • Start your morning off with some hot lemon water with added organic lemon juice.( this is not only liver cleansing, but also highly alkalizing.
  • Cut down on the processed foods. ( They are NOT good for you).This is deli meats, packaged chicken, bacon, processed snacks, ect.
  • Exercise daily
  • Try finding pure fresh fruit and vegeatble dishes, and smoothies, and slowly adjust to them daily. Start out with just having one juice a day, and then increase it daily.

I sarted using The Super Elixir about 3 monthes ago, and I’m not kidding when I say this, It’s the Best super powder on the market.

IT is so vital to add this daily, or even weekly to your diet. If you are making a green juice for the morning, or just to have through the day, try adding a bit of this to it. Honestly , when I add cayenne pepper to my juices, it gives it a great taste, and a bit of a twist, and it adds so much protection to your organs, and keeping them healthy.
