As our society becomes increasingly affluent, our body has also become more and more prone to acidosis (over-acidification). It is reported that acidosis affects easily 95% of the westernised world. The 21st century stress syndrome and lifestyle imbued with poor food and drink choices, unhealthy habits and a lack of exercise has created a society struggling with acidosis.
Why is Our Body Acidic?
The main cause of acidosis is due to acid-alkaline imbalance. An acid-alkaline imbalance in the body may predispose to various health problems, including lower immunity, excess mucous production, dysbiosis (microbial imbalances), aches, inflammation, premature ageing and stone formation in the kidney, bladder or gallbladder.
Acids are produced in our body as by-products of normal metabolism. Our modern, busy lifestyle has created the tendency to have a high intake of acidic-forming food, such as dairy products, saturated fats, sugary foods, processed and synthetic food, excess coffee and alcohol. The habit of smoking also contributes to an acidic body.
Achieving and maintaining a proper pH balance in our body is vital to our health and well-being. In their natural, healthy state, cells in the body are slightly alkaline (pH 7.35-7.45); but in a disease state, the cell pH is below 7.0 (acidic). The more acidic our cells become, the easier we will fall sick.
The Solution to an Acidic Body
According to modern biochemistry, fruits and vegetables are the main sources of alkaline food. This is why vegetarian and organic diets are effective against many diseases. The vitamins and minerals in organic and natural food play a role in replenishing the alkalinity of our body.
Due to a busy lifestyle, many people find it difficult to consume an acid-alkaline balanced diet. Alka-C Organe is a raw, whole food concentrate specially tailored to achieve acid-alkaline balance in our body.
Whole food is food that have undergone minimal or no processing, containing no artificial substances. Consuming whole food means that you’re taking in the food in its natural form with all its nutrients including vitamins and minerals. Many studies have proven that eating healthy whole food is beneficial to the health and in reducing disease. This is because nutrients only work in their biological complex form in which all components such as phytonutrients, antioxidants, dietary fibers, etc. required for their activity are present.
Alka-C Organe is the only true, alkaline, organic and natural, whole food form of vitamin C complex that effectively balances our body pH level. It contains 26 types of mixed fruit extracts: acerola cherry, camu-camu, apple, apricot, blueberry, bilberry, cranberry, cherry, grape, lemon, lime, mango, orange, papaya, pear, pineapple, prune, red raspberry, strawberry, tart cherry, grapefruit, watermelon, grape seed, blackcurrant, blackberry and tangerine.
All Alka-C Organe ingredients are non-genetically modified and easily absorbed by the body. It contains no synthetic chemicals, artificial colouring and flavouring, animal products, preservatives, lactose, dairy, cholesterol or added salt.
Besides being rich in Vitamin C, Alka-C Organe also contains multi vitamins, multi minerals, trace elements and other phytonutrients – all which are vital for good health.
It is recommended for people of all ages, especially those suffering from hyperacidity, excessive stress, low immunity, colds, flus, scurvy; people living in highly polluted cities or industrial areas; people who drink alcohol and smoke regularly; the elderly and children.
