Our bodies pH level matters a lot more than most people realize. In this day and age, most of us have pH levels that are far more acidic than they should be, this causes a lot of health issues and could seriously be holding you back.
Our pH for anyone who might not be aware is our ‘potential of hydrogen.’ This is a measurement of hydrogen ions in a particular solution, basically within our bodies. Our bodies are designed to operate with a relatively narrow pH range of around 7.365, this being more on the alkaline side. Having a more alkalinized pH can even help kill off/protect you from cancer. Lots of researchers have gone over how cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment which is why so many turn to a raw vegan diet when finding out they are chronically ill.
While there are tons of different foods you can eat that will help make your body more alkaline there are several that really go above and beyond to make that difference. Below I am going to go over the three most important supplements when it comes to increasing your bodies alkalinity. If you want to learn more about your body and the importance of a more alkaline pH check out the video at the end of this article.
The 3 Most Important Alkalizing Supplements That Will Help Protect Your Body:
Chlorella is a type of algae that is full of tons of different kinds of nutrients. It is a freshwater algae that could easily be considered a superfood. It is a wonderful source of protein, magnesium, amino acids, and chlorophyll. Taking small amounts of this over time will help you to avoid heavy metal build up within the body and support your immune system.
This algae contains more chlorophyll per gram than any other plant and is one of the best substances for cleansing our bowels. That being said, be sure you are not taking it in a freeze-dried form or a pasteurized form as you will lose lots of benefits. When used correctly this supplement can really make a huge difference for you.
This one is the cousin to Chlorella but is a lot better than it in more ways than you might think. While it looks the same, they are not. While Spirulina is also quite high in protein and chlorophyll it is a lot older than Chlorella. It has been found to treat a wide range of health issues and of those arsenic poisoning is one.
The only downside is that some people end up experiencing things like sleepiness, a slight fever, and breakouts when using it. This coming from the detoxification process and how our bodies grow in temperature as our metabolism changes. While these are only temporary they are enough to turn some people away from the idea altogether. Just a spoonful a day can make a huge difference in your life.
Chances are of the three on this list wheatgrass is the one you have actually heard of. It is also high in chlorophyll, see how important that is? It is full of vitamins and dozens of minerals including zinc and selenium. While most veggies, in general, are healthy we don’t often take the time to consider their alkalinity of them. Wheatgrass is highly alkaline. For this one, I suggest growing your own and adding it to smoothies. Click here to learn more about how to go about that.
