Just Starting With GreenDrink, Green Drink,
or SuperGreen Drink?
This segment is about "how to drink a greendrink" and "why we should drink a greendrink" regardless of which one you decide to drink. The process outlined below will help you increase your hydration to the levels you only thought you could. It's a lot easier to drink when you are thirsty, and following the protocol seems to inspire hydration levels that work well for many of us, so read on and find your path. Plus you can always call us with questions.
Drinking greens is really our best way to make up the difference in what our body requires (nutritionally) and because we mix greens in water, we are improving our levels of hydration. Let's face it we can all eat perfect and still not receive enough nutrition, especially at a cellular level where we need it. So then the question comes, which "greens"? Not all greens or green drinks are alike, your green drink plays a major role in meeting your nutritional needs and while ingredients are key, so is processing and energy derived from the greens, the enzyme values. SuperGreens is my favorite over any on the market today.
pH Body Balance recommends Maraline's "Five Alive Green Vitality" formula developed by Green Organics Internationl, which has the most amazing bio availability, delivering nutrition at a cellular level PLUS a very light taste, tastes like green tea!

The following instructions would apply to any greendrink, however keep in mind not all greendrinks are alike. Some may have ingredients that are not conducive to pHBodyBalance. Vitamins and minerals from food co-factor one another, meaning they work synergistically, and one cannot work without the other (which is why it is difficult to receive nutrition from many OTC products), and many just plain taste bad. For the long haul you should discriminate and select a greendrink that has everything you need, tastes great and most importantly, becomes the difference between your diet and what your body requires.
Whenever you begin drinking Five Alive Green Vitality, which is water and greens, always remember it takes some time for your body to adjust to absorbing new levels of nutrition so start slow unless you have already been taking high levels of nutrition and greens.
Don't force yourself to drink, here is what works for me and many pHBB members:
Starting with a quart size drinking bottle:
Begin with ¼ of the full dosage of the greens and usually you can begin with full dosage of the alkalizer.
Every 3 days add a little more green and in time you will be at the full amount, and feeling more energized each day.
Practice Drinking Greens (adding greens to water) Approach:
My suggestion is to make a bottle upon rising, and drink it over 30 minutes to 2 hours
Make your second bottle an hour after lunch, drinking it over 30 minutes to 2 hours.
In the evening, about an hour after dinner until bedtime, drink water with alkalizer and fresh lemon or lime juice.
If you practice this way, within 3 days to a week you should become dry mouthed, wanting more to drink. It's a natural way to increase hydration, I've seen people go to 6-8 quarts a day, and back to down to a normal level. This is giving your brain what it needs, then your brain signal back to you that your body wants to re-hydrate, or exchange your body water! Naturally increasing your level of hydration - This is Great News!
Here's the protocol that works for me and phBB members when taking Green Capsules:
My suggestion is to add your alkalizer to water, and take your Green capsules in the middle of your water bottle, i.e., drink half of your alkalized water and take your green capsules.
To me this simulates drinking a greendrink, meaning you are still hydrating and the water before and the water behind your capsules will perpetuate the greens into your system more readily that tossing them back with a little water.
You can also add lemon to your water, key is to take the capsules 1/2 way through the bottle and be consistent as in the schedule above so that your body and brain takeover and naturally increase your levels of hydration.
Remember you are at least 70% water (just like the earth) and your water needs to be exchanged with pure water on a regular basis. A quart a day for every 30-50 pounds depending on your health. Alkalized water and delivering nutrition at a cellular level is the single most important step you can make toward a healthier tomorrow.
Other supplements should be taken “less more often” versus “more less often”, i.e., a small amount going in frequently will give you more consistent results.
Adding fresh lemon or lime is nature's miracle, use it whenever you can, making fresh lemonade with Stevia is an incredible tasting lemonade and natural cleanser. Omega 3,6,9 oils also are an essential for good health. Using cold pressed oils with fresh lemon or lime for dressings and sauces is a passive way to great health. Fresh lemon and lime is acidic, however post digestively leave a high alkaline ash.
Practicing hydration creates naturalness and this is an easy practice.
Other product hints: Usually you take capsules with a little food and colloidal or ionic sublingual drops without.
