Citrus fruits contain citric acid which has an alkalizing effect when consumed and aids in both the production of digestive juices and the process of digestion. They have additional antioxidant constituents - including Vitamin C. For the past couple of weeks, we've prepared a citrus fruit juice made with freshly squeezed grapefruit, oranges, lemon and lime. It's a healthy and energetic way to start the day! Chemistry has two sides - acidic/corrosive and alkaline/base. It's important to maintain a blood PH level between 7.35 and 7.45 in order to have a healthy body. Alkalizing our bodies will heal us and balance our PH levels. Enjoy our recipe below!
