Have you checked your pH level lately?

The normal rate of acid excretion through the kidneys gives urine a pH that falls between 6.75 and 7.25. By testing the degree of acidity of the urine, you can determine whether your body is eliminating a normal quantity of acids. If the acid excretion rate is higher than normal, the urinary pH will be more acidic. A low urinary pH is also an indication that the body is saturated and therefore in an acidic state.

Another indicator of the overall pH balance in your body is the pH of your saliva. When your body has the mineral reserves that it should, the abundance of minerals will show up in a saliva ph test as a pH reading of 7.0 to 7.50. A low saliva pH reading indicates that the mineral reserves in your body are low, and are being used to buffer acids elsewhere in the body.

There is a strong correlation between the pH of the body’s internal environment and that of the urine and saliva: urine and saliva become acidic when the body’s internal environment becomes acidic. You can discover the pH of these fluids by using pH test strips. These strips are made specifically to test saliva and urine.

When cells in the body work in an alkaline environment, the digestive system will function properly. You should be drinking at least eight glasses of water each day. Water hydrates the body and flushes out the toxins that build up in the digestive track. Do not drink anything with a meal as it dilutes stomach acid and the body produces more acid to compensate.

Back to School: 10 Healthy Snack Ideas

  • Lemon is an ideal food for restoring acid-alkali balance. Drinking freshly squeezed lemon juice in water helps maintain the body’s internal “climate” at a pH which supports healthy bacteria and discourages harmful bacteria growth in the immune system.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar is another great way to improve alkalinity.
  • Herbal Supplements can give the immune system additional support during the colder months.
  • Essential Oils are  an excellent source of immune-stimulating compounds
  • Protein helps support a healthy immune system. Diets low in protein tend to be high in carbs which convert readily to glucose, spiking blood sugar and stressing the pancreas and the immune system.
  • Drink Plenty of Water. Headaches and thirst are both signs of dehydration. The body needs a certain amount of ounces of water daily, half your body weight in pounds. (i.e. Body weight in pounds, divided by 2 = number of ounces of water per day.)
  • Raw Fruits and Vegetables provide a high nutritional and are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber and enzymes.
  • Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps protect the body’s cells from damage by toxins in the environment.
  • Dark-coloured Produce (berries, kale, broccoli) tends to be higher in flavonoids, polyphenols and other antioxidants.
  • Seaweed is a great source of minerals.

The Best Joint Health Supplements

We need our joints to run, walk, type, write, and eat, and without them no task of importance can be done. As we age, our joints take a beating; they become stiffer, and begin to hurt as we bend them back and forth. Working out often and living an active lifestyle can actually make joint problems worse. That’s why many people take proven supplements to increase their joint flexibility and health, as well as decrease pain.

VirtuVites.com offers an extensive line of bone and joint supplements to help you continue an active lifestyle. We carry the best joint health supplements, including Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM.

Both Glucosamine and Chondroitin occur naturally in the body and act as building blocks for the functioning of healthy cartilage. Glucosamine and Chondroitin have been studied and have been found to be critical nutrients that assist in supporting flexibility, comfort and range of motion.

Glucosamine: Glucosamine is one of the major components involved with the formation of cartilage (critical lubricants and shock absorbers necessary to maintain and restore healthy joint performance). Glucosamine facilitates the renewal of cartilage and helps keep cartilage lubricated to maintain its naturally slippery texture. These mechanisms of action improve the structure of joints.

Chondroitin: Chondroitin supports existing cartilage by promoting the quality of the synovial fluid — it attracts fluid to act as a spongy shock absorber for the joints. It works together with Glucosamine to promote the healthy flow of water and nutrients into cartilage producing cells.

When taken together, Glucosamine and Chondroitin work naturally with your body to promote healthy, flexible joints. This process of revitalizing healthy joints takes time and depends on your specific individual nutritional requirements. With daily continued use, you should look forward to experiencing the benefits of taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin.

MSM: MSM keeps cells from becoming rigid and softens tissue (“the beauty mineral”), it is believed to relieve stress, asthma, arthritis, inflammation, constipation, candida, detoxify the body and increase blood circulation, reduce muscle cramps, and back pain, help muscles to heal, increases energy, alertness, mental calmness, and the ability to concentrate. MSM scavenges free radicals, relieves allergies to food and pollens, helps the liver produce choline, controls acidity in stomach and ulcers, coats intestinal tract so parasites lose ability to hang on, helps with hypersensitivity to drugs, increases body’s ability to produce insulin, is important for carbohydrate metabolism, and speeds wound healing.
