… easy steps to improve your immune system and well-being! We all know the old proverb “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Apples are nutrient-rich, known to lower uric acid as well as cholesterol. Especially older varieties of apples are rich in polyphenols, which counteract free radicals. Meaning, the naturally occurring flavonoids (phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables) carry out antioxidant action.Therefore, Metabolic Balance applies these impressive health benefits – we eat one apple a day – that’s one of our strategies of success.

Did you know how important our acid-alkaline balance (ph-balance) is for our metabolism? Our western diet (often with too little fresh food, too much coffee and alcohol) and lifestyle (too little exercise) is generally very acidic. If the equilibrium of the acid-alkaline balance is too acidic then our metabolism also goes out of balance. An over-acidified metabolism breaks down less fat, is much slower and draws valuable minerals from bones and cartilage to neutralize acids. This can accelerate degenerative joint diseases such as rheumatism and osteoarthritis. We cannot assess from the flavor of foods which foods are acidic for the body. For example, lemon, which is sour, has a nice alkalizing effect on the body, whereas chocolate, which is sweet, has an acidic effect.
If you want to know if your body is too acidic, you can buy urine test strips at the pharmacy and simply test your acid-base levels daily. These may be ideal to check in which state your acid-alkaline balance before and while on your personal Metabolic Balance nutrition plan. You can also support your body with regular alkaline baths and alkaline body-lotions and creams.
Due to today’s way of life and nutrition, the body has to struggle with a constant acidity. Too many acid-forming foods do not only upset the balance, but also increase the susceptibility to disease. As early as 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for his knowledge that no disease can survive in an alkaline environment – not even cancer.
