Women are busier today then ever before. Between work, family, friends, personal commitments and trying to stay in shape sometimes it's hard to keep up. If you want to enjoy a healthy life, have lots of energy and reduce the effects of the aging process, it is vital to maintain a slightly alkaline body.

An ideal alkaline body is one with a pH reading between the range of 7.3 and 7.43. Keeping within
these limits is simple once you know how to adjust your diet and your lifestyle. Alkalinity is particularly important when you are going through hormone changes, stress, and major lifestyle disruptions; all situations that can cause an imbalanced pH and lead to health issues, such as urinary tract infections, menstrual cramping and skin problems. As well as maintaining a balanced diet, there are a number of alternative ways to keep your body’s pH in check.

Barley Grass

This nutrient-packed food is comprised of seedlings from the barley plant that are harvested around 200 days after germination. Barley grass is rich in A, C, B1, B2, folic acid, and B12, calcium, iron, potassium, and chlorophyll. It also contains all nine essential amino acids. As well as having alkalizing effects, its powerful antioxidant properties enable it to protect you from digestive disorders, skin ailments and to reduce your risk of cancer. Dissolving 2 – 6 g of barley grass powder into juice or water, taken three times each day will help to balance your pH and protect your health.


Like barley grass, wheatgrass can be used to boost your health and vitality. It is rich in Vitamins A, B1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, and 12, C, E and K and a host of minerals including, Calcium, Iodine, Selenium, Iron, Zinc, and all nine essential amino acids. Wheatgrass’s powerful antioxidant activity is due to its superoxide dismutase content (SOD). This enzyme is known for its ability to destroy free radicals and help prevent the formation of cancer cells. It also helps to promote healthy aging and reduce the effects of inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. What’s more, wheatgrass has a high chlorophyll content, which helps counteract the many toxins in your body, reduces inflammation and has significant alkalizing effects.


Probiotics are live microbacteria that inhabit your gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These beneficial bugs help your body to fight invading pathogens and boost your immune system. Probiotics can help you balance your acid-alkaline balance by neutralizing toxins within your system. Try a combined probiotic supplement of B. bifidum and L. acidophilus with at least 5-10 billion viable bacteria 2 -3 times daily just before meals for the full benefits.

The Importance of Ionic Minerals

As your body performs its necessary chemical processes, waste products are produced that may become toxic for your body it they are not properly disposed of. A significant percentage of these waste products find their way into your blood stream and if not quickly metabolized, they can have negative effects on your health. Some of the key nutrients for maintaining your body’s acid-alkaline balance are the alkaline minerals, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, and bicarbonate. These are vital for maintaining your body’s energy levels. You can give yourself a boost with pHion Balance pH Booster, which contains more than 72 ionic minerals.
