Many people who are striving for better health think that just becoming more alkaline will net them great results. It can help, but an abundance of antioxidants goes even further to help you achieve your desired wellness goals. Properly hydrate and detoxify your body, add some extra oxygen to the mix, and you have all the components needed to achieve your wellness goals.
If you eat more fresh, raw organic vegetables every day, and eliminate processed foods, sugar and other acidic foods, you may raise your body’s pH level, but to reverse the effects of aging, have more energy and reap the rewards of healing, you need to do more than raise your pH. These foods contain nutrients such as protein, calcium, iron, and many antioxidants. They are also foods that are very Alkalizing. But for truly better health, you must have an abundance of alkaline minerals and an abundance of anti-oxidants, not just some, but a lot.
You can get some these health promoting jewels by eating the right diet, but you will have to eat plates full of raw veggies several times a day, add some supplements and you will still fall short. Food from your grocery store is not fresh from the garden or field and is full of preservatives and pesticides, which is just more acid, and more toxic to your body.
If you are extremely disciplined and eat a strictly alkaline diet, get rid of the preservatives and clean off the pesticides and chemicals, your body can heal itself from disease. However, better health can take a long time and healing may never happen. Most people can’t or don’t want to adhere to such a strict diet, and are so acidic already, that they are just not able to fully absorb enough nutrients in food or properly absorb and assimilate the nutrients in supplements. Therefore, getting the amount of antioxidants you need can be a daunting task.
So what is a person to do? Begin by changing what you drink. Your body is over 70% water so that fluid floating around inside you needs to be free of debris and junk- like clean oil is to an engine. When your car has dirty oil, it is very difficult for the engine to pump it. Eventually, if you don’t change the oil it gets so thick that it clogs up the engine and the car breaks down. So it is with your body. There is no way your body can properly process nutrients when the fluid that carries them to your blood is full of debris (acid). That is why people get sick and diseased- that is why bodies break down.
Water is a natural solvent, but getting it from a bottle or your tap won’t do the health and healing job. You need one that is alkaline, super-hydrating, detoxifying and contains an abundance of antioxidants and oxygen. Getting all of these components by doing something you do anyway is the easiest and best chance for wellness. Many have experienced tremendous health benefits just by changing what they drink.
