Among HUGE handfuls of other reasons to drink green juice, it is extremely alkalizing to your body.
When we consume foods that are acidic (meat, dairy, soda, alcohol, coffee and processed food, to name a few) we create an imbalance in our bodies.
When our body is too acidic, it creates the perfect environment for viruses and bacteria to thrive in. As viruses and bacteria continue to flourish inside our body, we are thanked with lack of energy, frequent illness and pains.
The good news is that we can choose to eat a diet full of alkaline food to create the balance in our system to keep us healthy, energized and full of life. Green veggies, lemons and limes are some of the most alkalizing foods out there and should be consumed everyday.
By juicing our produce, we get a direct shot of vitamins and minerals straight to our blood stream.
Our bodies get alkaline, we get energized, our skin glows – the rest is history.
