- Helps your body achieve optimal pH

Healthcare practitioners agree that a slightly alkaline body pH is optimal for best health. However, as Americans we tend to eat foods that promote an acidic system: sodas, coffee, tea, sugar, processed foods, etc., while we tend to avoids foods that are more alkaline such as vegetables and certain fruits.
Diet-induced metabolic acidosis (very acidic) is increasingly more common, especially in industrialized countries. One of the greatest risks of low-grade acidosis is to bone health because the alkaline reserves, in the form of calcium and magnesium cations, are borrowed from the bone matrix. Continuous withdrawal of these mineral cations from bone results inbone demineralization and subsequent loss of skeletal integrity.
Progressive Labs has introduced a new product to make is easier to promote a slightly alkaline system – Alkalizing Greens Blend. Alkalizing Greens Blend is a great tasting instant greens drink which is rich in fermented, alkalizing green foods, vegetables and spices. Plus, it also includes probiotics and prebiotic fibers to support optimal gut health.
Certain foods, like cereal grasses, may have excellent nutritional profiles, but are difficult for humans to digest. Alkalizing Greens Blend is fermented, which helps to “pre-digest” such complex foods by breaking them down into more readily absorbable amino acids and simpler sugars.
The process of fermenting foods – for preservation and to make them more digestible and nutritious – is an ancient practice that has been performed by humans for thousands of years.
Alkalizing Greens Blend is made with organic, gluten free, non-GMO Greens, Fruits and Vegetables, uses natural flavors and sweeteners.
