Our bodies maintain a pH balance that measures the acidity in our blood. That level of acidity can determine our overall health and potential risk of illness. Blood is measured on a pH scale from 0 to 14 with 0 being the most acidic and 14 being highly alkaline. An ideal pH level for our blood is around 7.35 and if our bodies are too acidic that creates an opportunity for our bodies to become ill and potentially develop disease.
Alkaline (or basic): 7.1–14.0
Fruits and vegetables make up the majority of the most alkaline foods. A food’s pH is measured by the residue or “ash” left in the body after it has been metabolized otherwise known as “metabolic waste”. If you consume foods that leave an acidic ash, it will cause your blood to be more acidic. If you consume foods that leave an alkaline ash it will leave your blood more alkaline which is known to be preventative, helping to maintain a body free of disease. This doesn’t require extremes. You don’t have to rule out all acidic foods. Simply choosing more alkaline foods will prevent your blood from becoming too acidic. Supplementing with Vibrant+ can help balance the acidity in your diet. Packed with greens and reds, Vibrant+ delivers 6,100mg of plant nutrients in each serving.
An acidic environment leaves less oxygen available for energy production, by neutralizing with proper nutrition you will have more energy, and the body will produce it more easily. High acidity can also promote muscle wasting and reduced bone density. Alkaline foods such as fruits and vegetables are rich in nutrients and help with improving musculoskeletal health, and prevent the activity of osteoclast cells that break down bone. Inflammation is also reduced significantly with an alkaline diet.
Short term symptoms that may indicate your body is on the more acidic spectrum of pH levels
- Low energy
- Brain fog or confusion
- Anxiety and depression
- Frequent headaches
- Frequent colds
- Joint pain
- Muscle weakness
- Digestive issues such as bloating
Highly acidic foods
In addition to supporting an alkaline environment, Vibrant+ also contains a digestive enzyme blend to help the body breakdown food and support the absorption of nutrients. The enzymes, amylases, lactase, proteases, lipase, and cellulase (DigeSEB) all help assist the necessary chemical reactions in the body to reap the health benefits of the food you consume. Your digestive system can feel sluggish when there are inadequate digestive enzymes present in the GI tract.
Vibrant+ offers several health benefits and tastes great with a pina colada flavor! This antioxidant rich greens and reds blend will help fill in nutritional gaps that are created when we don’t get enough fruits and vegetables.
