LIFESTREAM BARLEY GRASS IS YOUR BODY ALKALISER
ARE YOU OVER-ACIDIC?
It is very easy these days to get ourselves wound up, tense and over-acidic by the busy lifestyles we lead, eating too much fast food and not taking time to include enough healthy, fresh green vegetables in our diets. Overeating and the typical acidic lifestyle (white bread, sugar, takeaways, fried, processed or refined foods, tea, coffee, cigarettes and alcohol) are the key reasons for people becoming over-acidic.
WHY IS THE ‘ACID-ALKALINE’ BALANCE IMPORTANT?
The body’s acid-alkaline balance is very important to our overall health. This balance is often overlooked when health problems are addressed. The human body is perpetually in a changing state between acid and alkaline and is continually working to maintain an ideal pH level of between 7.3 and 7.4. Lifestream Barley Grass helps balance this process.
KNOWING YOUR FOODS
To optimize our health and well being, the ideal balance of food and food residue in the body is 80% alkaline and 20% acidic. This is largely determined by the food we eat, as foods are either acid forming or alkaline forming. This is not to be confused with the immediate acidity of a food. Lemons for example, maybe considered as acid forming but lemons, once metabolized actually leave an alkaline residue in the body. Lifestream Barley Grass is full of natural ionic minerals that help to keep the acid-alkaline balance in check. See the table below for a basic guide of common foods and their acid-alkaline category.
THE ACID/ALKALINE BALANCE
RESTORING THE ACID/ALKALINE BALANCE
Babies are born in a very alkaline state and over time we can become more and more acidic. However, all is not lost – the body can regain its natural alkaline balance by eating highly alkaline foods such as green leafy vegetables, fresh seasonal fruits, pulses and nutrient-rich super foods like Lifestream Barley Grass. The key is changing the balance of the foods you eat, the overall amount of food consumed and getting to know which foods are acid forming and which are alkaline forming.
