This week I would love to spotlight a herbal extract that is specifically designed to help address issues of inflammation and toxicity in the body.
Altered pH can be caused by stress, poor diet, underlying health conditions.
Our Herbs Online Shop Alkalising Herbal Drops are created using extracts of dandelion root, stinging nettle, turmeric, yellow dock and burdock root. These ingredients are used as they are known as the best alkalizing herbs that strengthen and support the whole body, specifically the digestive, respiratory, urinary, and glandular systems. When we are stressed, our body tends to become over acidic which makes the body a mixing pot for illness, injuries and disease. A body that is optimal in its levels of alkalinity will fight fight free-radical damage and inflammation while supporting healthy cellular regeneration within your body, so you can function with the most amount of energy and vitality. The dose of this herb is just 3ml once to three times daily.
On the pH scale, 7 is neutral, while anything below 7 is acidic and above 7 is alkaline. If you would like to know what your body’s pH level is please get in touch as we have testing strips available for you to find out your exact pH level.
Our bodies naturally function best in a slightly alkaline state – 7.2 on the pH scale. A diet that is rich in alkaline foods such as dark green and coloured leafy vegetables will help to promote a healthy state of alkalinity in the body. A diet rich in alkaline foods includes fruit, raisins, spinach, mixed coloured lettuce, green apples, celery, black currants, mineral soda, soy food, seeds, berries, legumes and nuts. If you would like help creating an alkaline-rich meal plan please do get in touch, as a qualified nutritionist I love to be able to support my clients to better health through both herbs and nutrition.
About our ingredients:
One of the main ingredients in our Alkalising Herbal Extract is Dandelion Root. Dandelion Root helps to flush out toxins from your liver, kidneys, and gallbladder. You can brew a strong cup that even tastes like coffee! Stinging Nettle is used for its Chlorophyll-rich properties as this reduces inflammation in the body. We include Alfalfa as it is known as “The Most Alkaline Plant Food!” because Alfalfa increases one’s alkaline reserves. It is especially beneficial to the kidney & bladder because it makes the urine less acidic, therefore less irritating to the urinary tract. Yellow Dock Root is a blood purifier, skin detoxifier, and alkaline herb which is rich in antioxidants and helps bring pH balance to the skin, blood, and liver. We use Burdock root as this is a truly alkalizing herb that helps strengthen the lymphatic system. It’s another herb that supports pH balance in the blood stream, and it’s one of the richest herbs for vitamins and minerals that the whole body needs.
If you are looking for more ways to improve your alkaline levels why not give this Alkalising Green Juice a try, it’s easy to make (just need a blender!) and tastes delicious!
