This week we are featuring Grapefruit Seed Extract as a must have supplement. While GSE is certainly a powerful antioxidant and antimicrobial, it also helps to raise your body's pH. A diet high in meat, sugar, and grains throws off the body's natural pH level, creating an overly acidic environment where serious illness thrives. Helping to alkalize your body is important because diseases cannot flourish in an alkaline environment. Some research has even demonstrated that cancer cannot survive in an alkaline pH of 8.0! Moreover, adding a few drops of GSE daily promotes the growth of good bacteria (like that found in your stomach and intestines) and wards off the overgrowth of bad bacteria, yeast, fungal infections, and parasites.
We recommend adding a few drops to a morning fruit salad or fruit juice. This will help the bitter flavor dissipate!
