Why is it important to alkalize your body?

Alkalinity, referred to as pH, is the concentration of hydrogen ions in water, blood, etc…  A pH of 7.0 on the scale is considered neutral, but a 7.4 pH is desirable for the human body.

You get alkaline by eating raw foods, fruits and vegetables.  The acidic foods on the other hand are sugar, white flour, red meats, and processed foods.  Stress can also cause your body to be acidic.  A normal American diet is 80% acid and 20% alkaline; this is the opposite of a good diet.  If you reverse those numbers you will be giving your body what it desires.

Your blood pH must operate in a narrow range for good health.  The complex biochemical processes taking place constantly is an attempt to keep blood pH as near perfect as possible. If your body is not getting an adequate mineral intake from the foods you eat, you will have problems balancing your pH system.  When the body is overly acidic it will leach calcium from the bones or teeth leading to osteoporosis and other health problems.

An easy way to get enough minerals to keep your body alkaline is by taking the only wheatgrass powder with the roots.  Wheatgrass will assimilate into your blood stream in about 20 minutes.  This is like getting a blood transfusion with every drink of wheatgrass.

All wheatgrass powders are not the same, be sure and get the only one that includes the roots.

 

 

 

 

 

What is a SUPERFOOD?

Scientist_Holding_Wheatgrass

A superfood is a whole food; that is also a raw food (nutrients are maintained), a food that is easily digestible and is especially nutritious.  A food that is rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes.   It is a food that aids in the prevention and elimination of disease, premature aging, and strengthens the immune system.

A superfood is NOT synthetic, NOT chemically altered; NOT cooked or highly processed, and is NOT a substitute for a well-balanced diet.

Why is it important to consume a superfood?

1). Soil depletion produces foods that do not contain enough quality nutrients.

2). Busy and stressful lifestyles raise our need for superior nutrition.

3). Proper nutrition is fundamental for health and healing.

In general, superfoods are beneficial for many health conditions.  Wheatgrass meets all the requirements of the superfood definition mentioned above.  Wheatgrass is a superfood that is inexpensive and easy to acquire.

Best Organic Wheatgrass powder comes in a single serving, convenient packet.  The packet can be used either at home or carried with you while traveling.   Our powder is 100% wheatgrass, roots and leaves, with nothing added.  The cold drying process maintains all the nutrients, including enzymes that are vital to digestion.

As a powder mixed with water, it is easily digestible and assimilates into your blood stream in about 20 minutes.  You receive maximum benefits when wheatgrass is added to a whole foods, plant based diet.  So why wouldn’t you add wheatgrass to your diet?

 

 

 

Should We Eat Like a Caveman?

The concept is to eat as our ancient ancestors did: plants (greens, roots, fruits, and nuts), wild-caught meats, fish and eggs. No grains. No dairy.   In other words — eat like a caveman.

It is normally recommended you stop eating meat to combat acidosis. But the scientists who analyzed this issue state clearly that our ancestors had alkaline bodies, not because they didn’t eat meat, but because they didn’t eat cereal grains and modern, energy-dense, nutrient-poor foods (refined sugars and vegetable oils).

The authors write “the replacement of base-rich plant-food groups (roots, leafy green vegetables, and fruits) with cereal grains and refined foods such as sugars and separated fats.” switched human diets from alkaline to acid.

To more closely follow the caveman diet and return our bodies to an alkaline state we need to:

  1. Remove refined, processed foods from our diet, especially sugars and flours.

 

  1. Include animal proteins. Choose meats from animals that eat their natural foods. That means no grain-fed fish, cows, chickens or hogs. Cows should graze on grass (grass fed beef). Fish should eat algae or plankton and smaller fish (no farm fish). Chickens should eat insects, grass, insect larvae and worms ( range free). Hogs should feed on acorns and roots.

 

  1. Add more plant foods back into our diet, especially greens and vegetables. The easiest way to add greens is to include wheatgrass powder from bestorganicwheatgrass.com.  One packet of this powder (that includes the roots) is the equivalent of 17 lbs of choicest vegetables.
