ACID VS ALKALINE

Oxygen plays a vital part in our body's to stay healthy and fit. Obviously threw breathing, but also threw FOOD. An oxidized body has healthy cells and a good immune system.

"Dr. Otto Warburg, 1931 Nobel prize winner, discovered a close connection between oxygen and cancer. His studies showed that the primary cause of cancer is directly related to oxygen-deprived cells. In fact, he found that cancer cells are anaerobic and actually thrive in an oxygen-deficient environment. Warburg also discovered that a slightly alkaline pH in the body meant higher levels of oxygen uptake. These days, having a low blood oxygen level is a normal clinical finding for people with chronic diseases." 

It's all about having a good balance.The measure of acidity or alkalinity is expressed as pH, where in a range of 0 to 14, a pH of 7 is considered neutral. The human body has been found to function best at a pH level 7.3-7.4, which means at a higher alkalinity than acidic level.

People just eat and drink way to much acidic stuff, coffee, sodas and processed food are all highly acidic and forget to eat alkaline food like spinach, broccoli, asparagus, radish, watermelon, mangoes, lemons. (That's right even if lemons are acidic outside the body it's alkaline in the body and helps to maintain an alkaline pH in the body). Some of these charts on the internet vary a bit, but they all basically say that a diet of raw leafy greens vegetables are the best way to keep you healthy. What you want to do is eat at-least 51% -80% alkaline food with every meal. So make a bIG salad!!!
