Stay Healthy and Hydrated with Alkaline Beverages this Summer
Consuming alkaline beverages and food can help you achieve a healthy pH balance, which promotes digestive system health, bone density and muscle mass.
The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 0 being the most acidic and 14 being alkaline (with 7 being neutral). The ideal pH level in your body is around 7.3, which can be achieved by adding more alkaline-forming foods to your diet, and reducing your intake of acid-forming foods.
As we head into the warm summer months, hydrating with alkaline beverages is a smart way to maintain a healthy pH balance.
What are some good alkaline drinks?
To maintain a healthy pH balance, reach for alkaline beverages like water, coconut water, carrot juice, nut milk, wheatgrass, and smoothies packed with leafy greens like kale and spinach. (Is there anything better than a cool smoothie on a hot summer day?)
You should also swap coffee, containing a high pH level, with the daily THRIVE Experience 3 Steps, which have a much lower pH level. Also, it’s best to steer clear of soda (pH level 2.5) and beer and wine (pH levels between 3 and 4).
Interestingly, while lemons have an acidic pH before digestion, they create alkaline byproducts once they have been metabolized — so go ahead and squeeze some lemon in your water to liven it up!
A favorite alkaline beverage among Thrivers is THRIVE Boost, a pH-balancing premium greens beverage that packs a blend of fruits, vegetables, botanical herbs, and super-green grasses into a delicious, berry-flavored drink.
The only Nutraceutical Beverage of its kind, THRIVE Boost delivers highly alkaline wheat grass powder, green tea leaf powder, and fruit extracts in a phytonutrient-dense beverage to help you achieve healthy pH levels and feel more energized.
So ensure you’re consuming enough alkaline minerals to help your body maintain a neutral, healthy pH balance and try adding THRIVE Boost to your THRIVE Experience this summer!
