There are some magic foods that act like “supporting pillars” for the entire structure of health, one of them is the Green spirulina shake. This food preparation benefits the body and mind in so many levels that it has become a central food in my kitchen. I love sharing it with my children and close friends and now with you and, here is why:
The green shakes contains 50% green leafy vegetables and 50% juicy fruits as well as water. Super food such as Spirulina is added to my green shake to provide concentrated nutrition that helps boost metabolism and the bank of Antioxidants in the body.
Creating A healthy PH balance
The Green shake is an excellent way to balance your Ph -most people’s Ph is over acidic because of the modern western diet - Caffeine, alcohol, animal protein, fried foods, white flour, baked products and sugar are all acidic, and when we consume them on a regular basis, our body reacts by becoming instantly more acidic. In other words we are losing the optimal Ph balance of 7.34–7.45 and the state of well being.
Homeostasis is coming to the rescue
To overcome the condition, the kidneys are summoned in. They are removing these acidic residues by borrowing essential minerals from our storage, or bones and then making you, urinate more often. This action is the body’s attempt to dump the excess toxins from the system .the constant balancing act in the body is also called homeostasis.
Stress is also very acidic to our body, it affects our feelings and ultimately creates a negative chemical reaction in the body. If you have not read yet my previous article on Ph let me sum it up in 2 sentences
Ph Acidic— is it making you sick and fat ?
You probably heard the term Acidic and Alkaline ph when it comes to your diet and health. I first research the topic 6…
Our body functions at its best when Ph is at the range of 7.34–45 , slightly alkaline. the Ph fluctuates throughout the day, week , month etc. — reacting to the kind of day we have had. Research indicates that Acidic Ph is responsible for most ranges of diseases, from simple headache to cancer and obesity.
