Include These Seven Alkaline Foods and Digestive Enzymes in Your Diet For Amazing Results






Include green veggies in every meal, for a whole variety of reasons, but especially to put your body into an alkaline state.   It's only recently that I realized the importance of the green vegetables, so now I include spinach in my nutritional shake and it doesn't even affect the taste.

Alkaline foods supposedly will also increase your body's strength and stamina.  Examples of these foods would be tomatoes, avocados, cucumbers, bell peppers and most green veggies.


Alkaline foods are beneficial for the body's pH level because they help neutralize acidity in cells. These foods also keep the pH level around the optimal level of 7.4, which is beneficial for the body's functions. If the body's cells become acidic, the cells will begin to deteriorate. Alkaline foods help the body maintain high energy levels while promoting weight loss. Alkaline foods also produce mental clarity, help the body detoxify and maintain a healthy heart.

The pH scale measures whether a substance is more acid or base (alkaline). Foods low in acid are considered alkaline, meaning they have an alkaline effect on the body and may counteract acids that are formed in the body, thus balancing the body's pH level.

Google this topic and begin to add more of these foods in your diet.  Fresh fruit and vegetables have a variety of benefits and no down sides, so enjoy every bite!

Note:  I also recommend USANA's Digestive Enzyme ...

USANA’s Digestive Enzyme supplies the supplemental enzymes our bodies may need to break down cellulose (from fruits and vegetables) fats, and proteins, carbohydrates and starches that we eat. It encourages more complete digestion and absorption of nutrients while supporting the body’s natural detoxification processes.
