When I think of pH balance I think of science lab, test strips, and funky smelling women’s issues. To be honest, I’ve never really taken into consideration its overall effect on my body’s health. If you are like me you probably have no idea what your body’s pH is and whether it’s good or bad. Thanks to teaming up with Multiforce I’m going to speed you up on this topic and give you some tips on how to balance your body’s pH- the right way!
What Is A Good Body pH?
Things I learned way back in high school and college biology classes have mostly been wiped from my brain. Unless I found them interesting which apparently pH balance didn’t rank high on my scale. Bummer! According to the Mind Body Green:
A pH less than 7 is said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline. Our ideal pH is slightly alkaline – 7.30 to 7.45.
Unfortunately, a lot of tasty foods and drinks that many of us like cause acid-forming chemicals in our bodies.
Food and Drinks
Do you drink coffee every morning? Or have to have a bedtime dessert? It’s just a fact of life, most foods and drinks can affect our pH level, especially if you are big into processed foods. It’s hard not to be with the go-go lifestyle most of us have.
Here’s a list of the biggies:
- salty snacks
- sweet desserts
- dairy products
- animal proteins
- processed dinners
- low sugar cereals
Am I the only one screaming “Noooo!” to most of these?
Yes, something as healthy as exercising can even be bad for you to some extent. Working out can build up your stamina and muscles while toning everything else but it also increases your lactic acid levels. Uh, oh!
With foods, drinks, and exercising working against us you may be wondering, “How in the world do I balance my body’s pH?”
Balancing Your Body’s pH The Right Way
As you’ve learned, many of our bad habits and lifestyle can do a doozy on our body’s pH balance – thank goodness for Multiforce! Multiforce is an all-natural, alkaline powder that can bring your body back into balance.
Its special blend of Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Calcium counteract acidic diets and regulates your body’s pH. These acid-reducing minerals work together, to make you less acidic (preventing and controlling excess acidity), in turn, making you feel healthier!
Multiforce comes in two great flavors – lemon (my favorite!) and mango. There is also an unflavored version if you prefer to have no taste at all., but I NEED flavor.
It’s easy to use too – just mix a teaspoon of Multiforce with 6-8oz of water and drink at bedtime. Easy, peasy!
I like to have mine on ice in a wine glass. Let’s face it, drinking anything out of a wine glass just tastes better. If nothing else, you’ll feel a little fancy while improving your health. Mom win!
I haven’t noticed any bad side effects. Other supplements tend to give me an upset stomach but I haven’t noticed anything bad with Multiforce. I think it tastes pretty good too!
Other Ways To Balance Your pH
- Add lemon juice to your foods – they are actually alkalizing!
- Eat more green and root vegetables – can help detoxify and increase calcium absorption
- Sub vegetable protein for some animal proteins – swapping out red meat reduces your acidity intake
