When we become too acidic, we may begin to experience symptoms like heartburn, sleep issues, digestive and elimination issues, weight gain or loss, perhaps cold hands and feet or other circulation issues, bloating after we eat, craving of foods and drinks not necessarily good for us, etc. Further, pain may become more apparent in muscles, ligaments, headaches, body aches, etc., arthritic pain, and then skin issues, allergies, asthma, dry skin, hair and the list goes on.

In high school chemistry class, we learn that pH is an abbreviation for potential hydrogen. A pH number measures from 0 to 14 how acidic or alkaline a liquid is. Anything above 7 is alkaline and anything below 7 is acid.
The urine, blood, saliva, digestive juices and the fluids inside and outside the body's cells each have an optimum pH level. When thinking about liquids in terms of their pH levels, going up or down one number on the scale represents a tenfold change in the acidity or alkaline nature of a liquid.
For example, the pH level of milk is around 6. Because the pH level of water is 7, milk is 10 times more acidic than water.
Vinegar has a pH of about 3, making it 40 times more acidic than water.
The body of an adult human being on average is 60% water.
The water in our body is found in within our cells (two-thirds of the water), in the space between our cells and in our blood (one-third of the water).
Most of the water in the human body is found inside our cells. In fact, our billions of cells must have water to live. Understanding that water makes up 2/3 of our cells and 1/3 of our blood really brings into focus how important our pH levels are.
Adding Five Alive Green Vitality to your daily diet not only helps to cleanse and purify, but may also increase the pH level of the water in your body.
In order for our bodies to function properly, our body pH must maintain a level between 7.35 and 7.45, or slightly alkaline.
At rest, the normal blood pH of a human being is slightly alkaline, with a pH around 7.4 on the pH scale. Anything above that value is considered alkaline; anything below is described as acidic. Both, in their extremes, are life-threatening for the human body; if the pH value drops below 6.8 or increases above 7.8, the cells of the body cannot function properly anymore and the human will die.
When our body pH falls below these levels and starts to become acidic. When we become more and more acidic it starts to set up defense mechanisms to keep the damaging acid from entering our vital organs.
Unhealthy conditions which can be caused directly by Over-Acidification / Acidosis may then start to set in. It has been linked to all kinds of problems, such as:
Supplementing your body with Five Alive Green Vitality provides you with a POWERFUL nutrient dense ALKALIZING blend of COLD PROCESSED dried grass juices, vegetables, herbs, sprouts, whole leaves, avocado and avocado seed.
Due to our fast paced daily lifestyles, poor food choices and chemically laden food sources, we are constantly fighting the battle against over-acidification (Acidosis) of the body.
When Acidosis occurs cellular activities and functions are interrupted. It is increasingly becoming accepted as one the major roots of sickness and disease.
Studies have shown that an acidic, anaerobic (which is also the lack of oxygen) body environment encourages the breeding of fungus, mold, bacteria, and viruses. As a result, our inner biological terrain shifts from a healthy oxygenated, alkaline environment to an unhealthy acidic one potentially leading to the below health concerns.
Obesity: It is known that acid gets stored in fat cells. As a defense mechanism, your body may actually produce fat cells to protect you from your overly acidic condition. To protect itself from potentially serious damage, the body creates these fat cells to store the acids and carry them away from vital organs. Those fat cells and cellulite deposits may actually keep acid wastes at a safe distance from your vital organs. Many people have found that a return to a healthy alkaline inner biological terrain helps them losing excess fat.
Joint Pain and Arthritis: All substances left by the metabolizing process are acidic and toxic; therefore these have to be neutralized by alkalizing elements, e.g. calcium ions, sodium ions, and lithium ions, among which calcium is the most important. Calcium ions are positively charged ions which are constantly looking for acid, to form calcium carbonate in our body. Calcium carbonate is harmless and will be moved out of the body, providing our body fluid pH is alkaline. Otherwise, it is being deposited around body joints. If the calcium ion level is low in the blood and body, excess acid will remain in our body and will lead to numerous health problems, like Join Pain or Arthritis.
Osteoporosis: Many people think they can eliminate osteoporosis by increasing their consumption of milk and dairy products. But in fact the instances of osteoporosis are rare in countries where the consumption of dairy products is very low. So osteoporosis is an acidosis problem. As the body becomes more acidic, our body tries to remain healthy to protect us against heart attacks, illness, strokes or even cancer. In doing so, it takes calcium from the teeth, bones and tissues, making them weak and brittle.
Underweight: Yeast and fungus produced in an acidic environment can feed on our nutrients and thus reduce the absorption of everything we eat by as much as 50%. Without protein the body can't produce enzymes, hormones or other chemical components necessary for cell energy and organ activity. This causes people to become very thin, which is not healthier than being overweight. As alkalizing and oxygenating takes place, the body naturally begins to seek its own ideal weight.
Low Energy and Chronic Fatigue: When having our cells constantly exposed to an overly acidic environment our biological terrain's oxygen level drops, leaving us tired and fatigued. This will allow parasites, fungus, bacteria, mold and viral infections to flourish and gain a hold throughout the body.
Heart Attack: If our internal biological terrain is exposed to excessive acidity, bacteria and/or fungi and/or viruses can attach themselves to the inner walls of arteries. This can attract white blood cells, causing proteins and cells to clot. In this way a plaque forms in the artery, thus narrowing the artery and restricting the flow of blood, nutrients and oxygen to the tissues supplied by that artery. Should that happen to the coronary artery, a heart attack can occur.
Allergies: The toxins produced within an acidic, oxygen deprived environment as well as the absorption of undigested proteins is major cause of allergy conditions. When the digestive system is weakened, a wide range of allergic reactions can occur, e.g. food allergies, and the overall susceptibility to allergens is increased.
Acne: There are many different forms of acne, and not few are linked to an unhealthy diet. Especially foods that are highly acidic tend to cause acne.
Frequent Colds, Bronchitis, Infections, Headaches: Only when our pH level is fairly balanced, the binding of oxygen to the hemoglobin protein of our red blood cells in the lungs operates. If the pH is too acidic, microbes in our respiratory systems can grow much more easily, and in that way cause bronchitis, pneumonia and sinusitis, and invade our cell system. This can result in cough, bronchial spasms (asthma), colds, infections and headaches.
The pH level of our bodies affects every cell in the body. Supplementing with Five Alive Green Vitality is a great tasting way to help your body gain and maintain the pH balance it needs and craves!
The primary cause of an acidic condition in your body is from what you put in your mouth. In other words, what you eat and what you drink. Food consumption in the most advanced countries of the world has changed from nutritious raw foods to highly processed foods that are very low in nutritional value.
By consuming too many unhealthy, acid forming or acidic foods, the growth of harmful bacteria, fungus, yeast and other micro organism is promoted within our body, which may result in obesity (we create fat cells to carry acids away from our vital organs), allergies (the absorption of undigested proteins due to an overly acidic body is a major cause of allergy conditions), fatigue (an over-acidified body produces toxins and weakens the body's ability to produces enzymes and hormones) and many other unhealthy conditions.
Interestingly enough, stress also tends to create an acid condition in the body.
As a result, we see huge increases in the incidence of life-threatening and chronic diseases.
That's why it is of utmost importance to our health to find the ideal balance of alkaline and acid forming foods and plant based nutritional supplements that are rich in alkalizing foods and minerals..
When we refer to acidic or alkaline for the body we're referring to if it's acidic or alkaline internally after the food and drink has been digested.
After our body digests food it produces or leaves minerals that create an "acid-ash" or "alkaline-ash".
Acid-forming foods normally leave behind high concentrations of chloride, phosphorus, or sulfur. These foods are called "acid-ash" because chloride, phosphorus, and sulfur are minerals that are used to make acids in the body (namely, hydrochloric acid, phosphoric acid, and sulfuric acid).
Alkaline-ash foods are foods that leave high concentrations of magnesium calcium, and potassium in their ash. These foods are called "alkaline-ash" because these minerals are used to form alkaline compounds (called bases) in the body (including magnesium hydroxide, calcium hydroxide, and potassium hydroxide).
For example, lemons are acidic before being eaten but leave an alkaline residue "ash" in the body after digestion. Thus, making them a high alkaline food.
Orange juice and lemon juice are acidic in their natural state but create an alkaline ash after they have been metabolized in the body.
Five Alive Green Vitality is rich in the plant based alkalizing minerals your body needs and craves. With just one sip your body will immediately recognize the pure, raw alkalizing nutrients.
Have a look at the table below to identify various foods' pH-level. Each one is assigned a number which mirrors its approximate relative potential of alkalinity (+) or acidity (-) existent in one ounce (28.35g) of food. The higher the number, the better it is for you to eat.
