6 Ways to Balance Your Body's pH

8/25/2017 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments

There are many trending diets, habits, and exercises that come in waves across the internet. Some are merely fads while others hold merit; but what it all boils down to, is the attempt to keep your body as healthy as possible from the inside out. One of the best ways to do this is to optimize your body's internal functionality by maintaining its prime pH level. When you indulge in highly acidic foods and drinks, it spikes your pH level into acidic territory which creates an environment in your body that can invite long-term illness, inflammation, and can negatively affect cellular function. Our goal should be to keep our body in the alkaline state, boosting immunity, energy, internal balance, and overall wellness! So, what are the steps we should take toward alkalizing our body so we can feel our best and ward off disease? Check out this list of food, drink, and lifestyle habits that contribute to a healthy, balanced body.

1. Greens. Making dark, leafy greens a staple in your diet will dramatically impact the alkalinity in your body. Kale, spinach, collards, and broccoli are all excellent examples of cruciferous vegetables that will not only help balance your pH levels, but in doing so, can reduce your risk of various cancers. Popeye had it right all along!
PRO TIP: If you're not a veggie eater, Environmental Detox features DIM, an ingredient derived from cruciferous vegetables and delivers the same benefits!

2. Nix Processed Foods. Don't let those packaged, processed, and frozen meals fool you. Though they claim to be healthy, the preservatives and processing of these foods can be harmful to your body. When in doubt, fresh is best. A good rule-of-thumb is to try to shop on the outer parameter of your grocery store. This is where most of the fresh items are, whereas the canned goods, frozen meals, and processed treats tend to tempt us in the aisles in the middle.

3. Lots of Water. You would be amazed at how much water intake really is enough for your body! It is essential to your overall health to consume enough water, as it promotes proper cell function, balances the body's natural pH level, assists the organs for optimal functionality, and promotes healthy digestion! Hydration is key.

4. Keep it Moving! Get your body in action to help break up acidic toxins and waste and move them along through your body. If you are tilting toward the acid side of the spectrum internally, go for a quick swim, play a round of tennis, or bust out the yoga mat to promote a healthy flow and rebalance your pH levels to a healthier state.

5. Citrus. Believe it or not, even though citrus fruits are acidic in nature, once metabolized and processed into the body, they actually encourage alkalinity within! Grapefruits, lemons, pineapples, are all excellent alkaline-producing foods! Try swapping out your morning coffee for a warm cup of water with lemon to kick-start your day and balance your gut's pH first thing in the morning.

6. Wellness Supplements. The Osmosis Wellness Line contains many all-natural products and supplements that aid in the optimal function of cells in your body, ultimately balancing your pH to it's ideal state for your unique body. Complete is an all-natural digestive enzyme that helps break down food for proper digestion, as well as increases nutrient absorption of those alkaline-producing foods to help you feel more energized and healthy!

The bottom line is to strive for a healthy balance internally through what you are putting inside your body and choosing healthy lifestyle habits. Take your health into your own hands!
