A Highly Alkalizing Juice Recipe
At this day and age it is common knowledge that for optimum body health, being alkaline, is the preferable state versus being acidic. There are different factors that can contribute to a more alkaline or more acidic body such as proper hydration and the emotional state of an individual. Food consumption is one of them.
Foods once digested can either leave an alkaline or acidic residue. Lemons, while acidic, do leave an alkaline residue once digested so they are considered an alkaline forming food and are highly recommended, especially on juicing recipes, over other fruits.
Alkaline fruits and vegetables are also important for juicing for weight loss recipes. The more you can do in our overall diet to help your body become more alkaline, helps all aspects of your health including supporting healthy fat loss and metabolism.
