Goji juice health thoughts!

Health discoveries in the last decade have been fairly revolutionary. There is a common theme that seems to permiate these discoveries: that if you can get the right nutrients into your body, it will do an AMAZING job of fighting off disease and remaining healthy.

One of these discoveries is the Acid/Alkaline balance of your body. It's been known for a VERY long time that terminal cancer patients almost universally have acidic blood. What was unknown was why, and if the acid was a result of the cancer, or a cause.

LOTS of research has been done lately on the relationship of your acid/alkaline balance and health. A solid conclusion is that Acidic blood is BAD. It leads to a whole host of health problems. It may very well be to blame in large measure for cancer and heart disease. And guess what... the Western diet is almost ridiculously engineered to produce acidity in the blood.

What produces a more alkaline reaction in the blood? You guessed it - a more vegetation-rich diet. Unprocessed natural foods tend to have an alkaline result on your body, with some very notable high-benefit foods: Chlorophyl-rich foods have a very alkaline effect on your body; so grass juices such as wheatgrass, barley, and other greens are really great. Raw nuts, especially almonds, are also very alkaline.

Want to guess which food has the MOST alkaline effect on your body?

Yep. Goji Berries.

They have 20 TIMES the alkaline effect on your blood that pure wheatgrass juice does!
