pH and AIM BarleyLife

Our cells cannot function efficiently if the pH (which measures acidity and alkalinity) is not in a narrow range. Many foods are acidifying, and when we consume too many of them, the acid-alkaline balance is upset. Green barley grass contains the alkalizing minerals potassium, calcium, and magnesium. These minerals neutralize acidic materials and can help maintain a healthy acid-alkaline balance.

Helps Balance your Body's pH

Fast Food is Fast Absorption

In 1964, only 1 person in 214 contracted Cancer. Today it is 1 in 3 females and 1 in 2 males. The determining factor between health and disease is pH. It is not uncommon for the average American to test between 4 pH to 5 pH.                                 Oxygen levels in the body are directly related to pH.   Research has proven that disease cannot survive in an alkaline state, however, viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, Candida and Cancer cells thrive in a low oxygen, / low pH environment.  There are two factors that are ALWAYS present with cancer no matter what else may be present. Those two factors are Acid pH and Lack of Oxygen.

AIM BarleyLife: has a strong alkalizing effect, which helps keep the ratio between acidity and alkalinity in our body fluids balanced.   Green barley leaves contain a multitude of    enzymes. Enzymes are essential for the thousands of chemical reactions that occur throughout the body, including the absorption of digested nutrients.   order AIM BarleyLife

Chlorophyll has been studied for its potential in stimulating tissue growth and in stimulating red blood cells in connection with oxygen supply. A remarkable similarity has been found between chlorophyll and the red pigment in the blood. According to an article in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, chlorophyll fed to laboratory animals reduces absorption of three dietary carcinogens.

Vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin, plays an important role in growth and development,    immune functions, red blood cell production, reproduction, and the development and maintenance of healthy skin, hair, and mucous membranes.  The vitamin A in BarleyLife is beta-carotene, which is the most efficient of the carotenoids for conversion to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is also an important antioxidant known to protect cells.

Folic acid helps produce and maintain new cells—it is needed to make DNA and RNA, the building blocks of cells.  Folic acid in BarleyLife helps prevent changes to DNA that may lead to cancer.                                                                                                                                                 References:  AIM BarleyLife data sheet 2011


Improve you pH

Here are five steps you can follow to improve your health and increase your alkaline reserve status:

1. Eat at least 3 servings of fresh fruit per day.  Try different types, like

Fresh vegetables are alkalizing

Balancing your pH with fresh vegetables & fruits

an orange, an apple and 1 cup of berries, the more variety, the better.  Different colors of fruits & vegetables, give us different nutrients.

2.  Eat as many vegetables as you can.  6 to 7 servings is so good for your body.  You may have to start out slow.  Try adding one new serving of  fruit or vegetables each day until you get the recommended daily allowance (RDA)  Raw is best, you can mix them in salads or have them as a snack with a homemade dip.  Take 1/2 cup plain Greek organic yogurt and thoroughly mix in  about 1/2 teaspoon dill weed (or other unsalted spice), it makes a great dip.  (See another recipe below)

3. Add more cooked vegetables to each meal, but don’t overcook the vegetables, leave them a bit crunchy,add more to soups

4. Eat fewer high protein foods. Eat smaller portions of beef, poultry, pork, and fish, while continuing to add more raw &  cooked vegetables to meals.

5. Begin to lessen the amount of sugar, salt, coffee, tea, cola drinks, and processed foods.

I encourage you to make dietary changes slowly. Rapid changes will cause toxins to be dumped into your system which is already bogged down and make you feel worse! As you make these changes slowly, you’ll begin to crave wholesome foods and adding AIM’s BarleyLife, JustCarrots and LeafGreens is a simple and easy way to add all the benefits of fresh, live fruits & vegetables without the hassle of cleanup when juicing the ingredients yourself…Go to  www.aimforbalance.com
