“I like keeping NitroGreens in my cabinet for those days when getting 10 servings of fruits and vegetables is impractical.”
What are a few basic things everybody can do every day to have healthy cells? If your cells are healthy, your whole body is healthy.
Here are some of the things I do. I make sure I have good sources of basic minerals, which most people are deficient in; for example, I use unrefined Celtic sea salt and Iodine. I use a bioavailable form of vitamin D and a full spectrum vitamin/mineral. I also supplement essential fatty acids. I try to eat 10 servings of fruits and vegetables every day and drink at least 8 glasses of pure water.
If we can eat 10 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, we increase the phytonutrients we get from plants. One of the greatest benefits we get from plants is the natural buffers that alkalize an acidic system. pH is a unit that measures the concentration of hydrogen ions. Distilled water has a pH of 7 and is considered neutral. A true acidic condition is defined as a pH under 7.0, which is a serious life threatening situation. Optimal blood pH is 7.345 – 7.45. If our pH goes below the optimal levels, it moves into what I call “relative acidity.” Very slight changes in pH have profound effects on our health.
What’s interesting is that if our pH is not in the optimal range, things don’t work right even if we have all the ingredients to make them work correctly. For example, if our pH is in the “relative acidic range,” enzymes don’t work properly.
Oxygen can’t be released at the cellular level even if our red blood cells are carrying the right amounts of oxygen. Cell membranes become rigid, and nutrients become depleted because they can’t get into the cell. So the proper pH is very important.
The standard American diet is not pH friendly. Meats, grains, sugar, fluoridated and chlorinated water all contribute to “relative acidic chemistry.” Here’s the good news. Fruits and vegetables, especially green foods, alkalize the system by increasing natural buffers. If consuming 10 servings of fruits and veggies are difficult, that’s when I suggest a green drink like NitroGreens.
What’s nice about NitroGreens is that it’s completely organic and is grown from heirloom seeds. It is a combination of organic grasses, juices, berry extracts, and sprouts. Grasses also provide a great source of trace minerals. Speaking of minerals, it took Biotics Research, the makers of NitroGreens, 2 years to find raw materials that were free of contaminates.
Recently consumer labs have identified several green drinks that contain the heavy metals lead and cadmium. It’s important to know which manufacturer of organic products you can trust. Among certified organic raw materials Biotics Laboratory found heavy metals, pesticides, and oxidized denatured plants. Testing revealed many of the green drinks on the market were already oxidized. Hey, we are dealing with food; and if not handled properly, it can go bad. By drying it at elevated temperatures, transporting it in the wrong vehicles, or improperly storing raw materials, suppliers can destroy enzymes and make a good food not so good.
The type of due diligence in raw materials displayed by Biotics Research is unrivalled in the nutrient industry today. The “Nitro” part of NitroGreens reminds us of Nitric Oxide. I interviewed Dr. Abbas Qutab, a prominent and respected doctor. He commented that “over 76,000 papers have been written about Nitric Oxide since 1998.” “Nitric Oxide helps to maintain, defend, and repair every cell in the body.” Dr. Qutab explained that the ingredients in NitroGreens naturally increase Nitric Oxide.
I like keeping NitroGreens in my cabinet for those days when getting 10 servings of fruits and vegetables is impractical. It takes a lot of time to clean and prepare veggies; it’s nice to have a quick option. Mid-afternoon, instead of reaching for that cup of coffee, try using a scoop of NitroGreens in some almond or coconut milk. You can have a refreshing drink that enhances the life quotients in your body, instead of depleting them.
Ask Dr. Godo about NitroGreens, recipes for green drinks, and other benefits. Try adding NitroGreens to your cabinet so that every day you can do those basic things that defend, repair, and build healthy cells.
