Hey Peeps - Hydrate Wisely!

Check out this science project. Three peeps are placed in either water, vinegar, or soda and left to soak. Afterwards they are pressed with a fork to check the results. The water soaked peep absorbed the water, plumped up, and stayed intact. The vinegar soaked peep foams and has shrunk, while the soda soaked peep lost an ear and is disintegrating. What does this mean for people? Remember, the human body is 60-70% water. Consuming an excess of acidic and/or sugary beverages leads to PH imbalance and negative side effects, such as:

  • Joint aches, muscle pain
  • Osteoporosis, weak, brittle bones, and risk for hip fracture
  • Kidney stones, bladder damage
  • Weight gain, obesity (acidic bodies hold onto fat)
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Yeast/fungal overgrowth

Our body always seeks balance. When diet (food or drink), pollutants, or stress creates an imbalance, our body resorts to extremes and pulls minerals from our bones to stabilize PH levels. Support your body and hydrate wisely with an alkaline diet. Add plenty of water rich foods like vegetables and fruits to your meals and toast to your good health...sip on water daily!
