Today I show how to use pH ADJUST Alkalinizing Formula to make coffee alkaline. When pH Adjust is added to coffee, it rapidly changes from an acidic pH level to an alkaline pH level.
When you drink alkaline coffee, you are helping your body keep the healthy pH level of 7.34–7.45 it strives to maintain. Moreover, by changing to an alkaline state from an acidic state, you avoid health issues known to be associated with acidosis or ongoing, highly acidic pH levels.
pH ADJUST makes an already health-giving beverage into an alkaline-forming powerhouse supporting your best heath and brain performance. pH Adjust also effectively increases pH when used in water, juices, smoothies, or your favorite beverage.
pH ADJUST works by providing key minerals potassium (bicarbonate and glycinate) and magnesium (carbonate), as well as some sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) that act synergistically to boost pH levels in the body. HPDI recommends users measure pH using litmus paper to accurately test their pH levels.
Ideally your body pH is 7.35–7.45. Coffee itself is typically acidic with pH levels of about 5.0 to 6.0. pH Adjust therefore is an ideal supplement for adding into coffee to increase the pH of the coffee you drink and thereby increase your pH levels.
WHAT IS pH ADJUST?
pH ADJUST is an alkalinizing formula (powder) that is designed to increase pH levels in the body rapidly and effectively for good health.
Here is how we describe pH ADJUST on the label: "Alkalinizing Formula, 250 gm – Alkalinize with Potassium Bicarbonate, Magnesium Carbonate, Potassium Glycinate, and Sodium Bicarbonate"
pH ADJUST Features and Benefits
• Alkalinize with Potassium and Sodium Bicarbonate and Magnesium Carbonate
• Helps Counteract Overly Acidic Conditions; Increases pH Levels in the Body
• Balanced Supplemental Minerals; Unique 3:1 Potassium to Sodium Ratio Improves Taste and Reduces Salt Intake
• Tastes Good – Easy to Use Fluffy Powder
• 250 One-Gram Servings Per Container (250 grams)
• Suitable for Vegetarians & Vegans; Gluten-Free
pH ADJUST may be used to assist in overly acidic conditions in the digestive tract, blood, and kidneys; increase salivary and urinary pH to healthy levels; and to supplement the body with the minerals potassium, magnesium, and sodium.
INGREDIENTS:pH ADJUST contains (in powder form): potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate.
Each one gram serving (about ¼ tsp) contains about 300 mg of bicarbonate, 260 mg of carbonate, 133.4 mg of potassium ((from KHCO3 & glycinate), 99.1 mg of magnesium (from MgCO3), 48.1 mg of sodium (from NaHCO3) and 100 mg of glycine.
DIRECTIONS: As a dietary supplement, take ¼ tsp in 4–8 ounces of purified water preferably away from food, or as directed by a health care professional. For extremely acidic conditions, try 4–10 doses per day, depending on acidity level. Use pH paper to ensure pH levels remain balanced, and do not become too alkaline (alkalosis may occur above pH 8.2).
TEST pH LEVELS: The best way to test pH levels is to use litmus paper, which HPDI offers in rolls (Hydrion brand) for this purpose. You can test both salivary and urinary pH. Advantages of pH paper include rapid results, ease of use, and cost effectiveness.
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT pH ADJUST
pH ADJUST is fluffy white powder that mixes into water, juices, other liquids, and foods. It acts rapidly to raise pH levels in the body. It is easy to use, mild-tasting, and highly effective for balancing pH levels. It is gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan/vegetarian, and contains no artificial ingredients.
NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS AND APPLICATIONS
The minerals potassium, sodium, and magnesium are key substances that are involved in many important functions in the body. When combined in bicarbonates (potassium & sodium), carbonates (magnesium), and glycinate (potassium) these chemicals can help to adjust and balance pH levels that are crucial to body function.
pH ADJUST provides a 3:1 ratio of potassium to sodium. This ratio keeps potassium levels relatively high with respect to sodium. The processed food diets with a high protein and low vegetable content consumed by many people in the US and elsewhere produce conditions in the body of acidity. This in turn leads to decreased oxygenation of our cells and a greater amount of anaerobic processes in metabolism. This, in turn, leads in inadequate ATP (energy) production and the presence of unwelcome anaerobic cells and organisms.
Bicarbonate is a major element in our body. Secreted by the stomach, it is necessary for digestion. When ingested, for example, with mineral water, it helps buffer lactic acid generated during exercise and additionally reduces the acidity of dietary components. Additionally, it has a preventive effect on dental cavities. Each ¼ tsp of pH ADJUST contains about 300 mg of bicarbonate.
Bicarbonate is present in all body fluids and organs and plays a major role in the acid-base balances in the human body. The first organ where food, beverages and water stay in our body is the stomach. The mucus membrane of the human stomach has 30 million glands which produce gastric juice containing not only acids, but also bicarbonate. The flow of bicarbonate in the stomach amounts from about 24 mg/hr for a basal output to about 73 mg/hr for a maximal output.
Thus, at least half a gram of bicarbonate is secreted daily in our stomach. This rate of gastric bicarbonate secretion is 2–10% of the maximum rate of acid secretion. In the stomach, bicarbonate participates in a mucus-bicarbonate barrier regarded as the first line of the protective and repair mechanisms. On neutralization by acid, carbon dioxide is produced from bicarbonate.
One serving (about ¼ tsp) of pH ADJUST contains about 300 mg of bicarbonate.
pH ADJUST contains about 260 mg of carbonate (and 99 mg of Mg) in the form of magnesium carbonate. Magnesium carbonate is used as an antacid that gets converted to Magnesium Chloride (MgCl) and CO2 by stomach acid. MgCl is a well absorbed form of magnesium.
TRY pH ADJUST IN YOUR COFFEE
We strongly recommend trying pH Adjust in your coffee (or ketogenic coffee) to help alkalinize the body rapidly. Many people gain major benefits from drinking this simple, easy-to-use formula that is highly effective for raising pH levels. Beyond coffee, it works well in other drinks! Like water, teas, juices, or smoothies. Try pH Adjust and see how effectively it can alkalinize you.
Today I talk about my REJUVENATE!™ BERRIES & HERBS high-RNA superfood. I designed it to be a super-delicious, intensely berry flavored superfood with no greens. I put in real organic berries—BLUEBERRY, STRAWBERRY, RASPBERRY, and CRANBERRY—so it bursts with true berry flavors! I recently updated the formula, so it is is more delicious and nutritious than ever.
REJUVENATE! BERRIES & HERBS – A COMPLETE SUPERFOOD
Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is a delicious high-RNA (390 mg), high-protein (14.6 g) (organic pea and organic rice), high-antioxidant (ORAC value of 14,000+), high fiber (13 g) superfood with a creamy smoothness and rich berry flavor that tastes beyond great! It also boosts health with a complete multivitamin-multimineral sub-formula and important cell-protective herbs (herbal complex) that includes ginger, dandelion, burdock, turmeric, green tea extract, astragalus, and many other health-building herbs.
How to use Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs? Just mix in water, juices, nut milks, or smoothies to create a drink with superb health benefits. Or use it creatively in foods, such as nut butters, salads, fruits, sauce/dressings, or desserts. It tastes so good, some people like to eat it by itself—or mixed in a little purified water.
HEALTHY AND HIGH-RNA BY DESIGN
Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is among HPDI's premier high-RNA superfoods. That is, Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is one of three Rejuvenate! superfoods, which are the world's first—and only—dedicated high-RNA superfoods. High-RNA nutrition means high in dietary nucleic acids, which Dr. Benjamin S. Frank considers to be essential nutrients, like vitamins and minerals (Dietary Nucleic Acid Nutrition & Therapy). Dr. Frank's studies demonstrate many benefits of nucleic acids, including: greater energy, endurance, functional strength, easier breathing (anti-anoxic effect), as well as cardiovascular benefits and cosmetic benefits (smoother skin and a more youthful appearance).
• Delicious Berry Flavor Bursts with Real Organic Berries! • Powerful Organic and Wildcrafted Cell-Protective Herbs • High ORAC Value (~14,270 units)
• 390 mg Dietary Nucleic Acids (RNA/DNA) from Vegetarian Sources • Multiple Prebiotics Supporting your Microbiome • Gluten Free, Vegan/Vegetarian, No Artificial Ingredients • Mixes Well with other Rejuvenate!™ Superfoods
My updated formula (as of 12/2018) features, per serving:
– 2.6 g more protein (14.6 g total) – Very little sugar (1.2 g total) – 7.0 g more fiber (13 g total) – 100 mg of organic BiAloe® aloe vera gel powder with over 18% acemannan – 700 mcg of folate as 5-MTHF (natural, coenzyme folate) – A smooth & delicious taste (even better than before!)
Given all the upgrades I recently made to the formula, I certainly hope you will give it a try. I'm so happy with it, and I use it daily. Berries & Herbs hardly feels (or tastes!) like a nutritional supplement. But believe me, there are few superfoods anywhere that provide as much nutrition—or nutrient density!
HIGHEST QUALITY INGREDIENTS – INCLUDING ORGANIC AND WILDCRAFTED
To give you a better idea of the high-quality ingredients I put into Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs, check out this complete list of ingredients:
Today I make a tasty smoothie with the new, improved REJUVENATE!™ BERRIES & HERBS superfood. In fact, Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is likely the most delicious among HPDI's Rejuvenate! superfoods, as it contains for types of real organic berries: Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, and Cranberries. This uber-berry superfood was born for smoothies.
Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is a uniquely healthy superfood that not only tastes amazingly good, but its high berry content gives it an ultra-high antioxidant value (ORAC) of 14,270 units per serving—an exceedingly high ORAC value compared to typical "superfood" formulas.
Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs provides 14.6 gm of organic protein (including organic pea and organic rice). It includes a potent cell-protective herbal complex (including green tea extract, ginger, turmeric, astragalus, burdock, dandelion, and rhodiola). In addition, it contains a built-in multivitamin sub-formula including coenzyme vitamins and other highly assimilable forms of important micronutrients.
I especially love Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs because my father Dr. Hank Liers formulated it to provide the most dietary nucleic acids per serving—390 mg (dietary RNA/DNA)—the most per serving in any Rejuvenate! superfood. Sources of dietary nucleic acids in Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs include nutritional yeast, yeast extracts, and CGF (chlorella growth factor).
Dietary nucleic acids are proven to provide significant benefits for health. Studies by pioneering nucleic acid researcher Benjamin S. Frank, MD, PhD indicate effects such as greater endurance, easier breathing (anti-anoxic effect), increased energy (ATP production), improved functional strength, warmer body temperature (e.g., cold resistance), and other effects. Dr. Frank asserts that dietary nucleic acids are essential nutrients, not unlike vitamins and minerals (Dietary Nucleic Acid Nutrition & Therapy).
Considering all the benefits conferred by dietary nucleic acids, you really cannot go wrong by consuming more of them daily. And Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs helps you do that by providing nearly 400 mg of dietary RNA/DNA per serving. That is a therapeutic dose which means you stand to gain all the benefits they confer. Depending on who you are and your health status, that could mean a lot in terms of helping you be healthier.
To recap, Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs uniquely offers: 1) High RNA (dietary nucleic acids), 2) High Antioxidant Levels, 3) Herbal Sub-Formula, 4) High Protein, 5) Built-in Multivitamin, and 6) SUPER TASTE—that is super delicious in your superfood smoothies.
You just cannot get all these benefits in ANY other superfood, including other Rejuvenate! superfoods, each of which is formulated with a specific purpose. For example, Rejuvenate! PLUS is designed to provide significant levels of greens (think chlorella and spirulina), but lacks berries. Within its berry bailiwick, Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs truly stands alone as one-of-a-kind.
REJUVENATE! BERRIES & HERBS highlights:
• Delicious Berry Flavor Bursts with Real Organic Berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries)! • Powerful Organic and Wildcrafted Cell-Protective Herbs • High Antioxidant (ORAC) Value of 14,270 units per serving! • Contains Multiple Prebiotics Supporting Your Microbiome • Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans & Gluten Free • Mixes Well with other Rejuvenate!™ superfoods (like Rejuvenate! PLUS and Rejuvenate! Original Greens) and smoothie ingredients.
New, improved REJUVENATE! Berries & Herbs features (per serving): • 14.6 g protein • Very little sugar (1.2 g total) • 7.0 g more fiber (13 g total) • 100 mg of organic BiAloe® aloe vera gel powder with over 18% acemannan • 700 mcg of folate as 5-MTHF • Smooth texture & delicious taste!
There you have it. If you're anything like me—and you love the taste of real, organic berries—consider Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs to be your greatest ally when it comes it to tasty and healthy superfood nutrition. Make yourself a Berries & Herbs smoothie, and start creating health naturally today! ~
HPDI's sponsored athlete Irena Ossola has been a bike tour leader in Italy this summer and fall. During that time, she scaled back her nutritional supplement regimen. This is partly because the summer and fall period is one of rest from high-intensity competitive bike training—and because her training for the new racing season has not yet begun. However, she recorded her observations regarding nutritional supplements. She concludes they are important whether or not she is actively training for races. – editor
I have been working like a maniac and nonstop since I arrived in Italy for my bike touring job at the end of August. However, I am feeling good and recovering well and happy to move forward for next year in training. I am starting to really look forward to getting in some hard solid winter training now and especially being in Tucson will be amazing!! I can't wait to get back into my regular training regime. On another note, I've recorded some observations during my time in Italy about my nutrition and vitamins.
"As I am now at the beginning of my touring/working season, I like to use this time as my sort of "off time" for supplements. Regarding vitamins and other nutritional supplements, I have found in the past that I have trouble staying on schedule and taking them while working. I feel that my nutrition is still adequate as I eat vegetables and meat and other necessary things for the amount of effort and activity I am putting my body through. Yet, I also know I will feel the difference without a constant flow of vitamins and supplements from Health Products Distributors, Inc."
"Now that I am in my moment of break and I've been working constantly for about a month, I must stay that I have also not been taking vitamins for a couple weeks and I can definitely feel the difference. Especially in my diet when I am not eating as healthy (as I do when training) or being as consistent with consuming vegetables.
I notice a lack of energy when I am working and lack of intensity on the bike when I'm riding. This is fine for now, and a good test for me as during this time I do not need a high-intensity effort while riding and it is a good test of my energy levels to see the contrast while I'm working compared to training.
I will begin taking some supplements again regularly which I think will help and will also demonstrate the necessity to have a regular schedule of nutritional supplements even when my work and travel schedule is so busy."
"Boy do I feel the difference! Since I have been regularly taking supplements again I can feel my energy going up and my willingness to push more and have more intensity on the bike. I feel the difference in my regular diet as well as I feel more motivated to eat healthy. This is a big contrast and difference I can see from the period when I was taking supplements to when I stopped and now again to taking them. This shows how big the influence of nutritional supplementation is for my body.
I will continue taking my vitamins and being active while working and also eating a healthy diet to maintain my energy levels and physical ability. I am so busy while working that supplements are often hard to take while changing hotels or setting things up for the day. But if I have my vitamin bag and make sure to keep it somewhere easily accessible, then I am more willing to take them and can easily.
Warrior Mist™ is the most effective formula for pain relief offered by HPDI. Warrior Mist is an all-natural, fast-acting, topical pain reliever that is effective for many types of pain. I should know. I have used it nearly every day—for years!
Types of pain Warrior Mist is known to stop, reduce, or soothe include: back pain (including sciatica), knee pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches (including migraines), neck pain and tension, stiff and painful (or pulled) muscles, plantar fascitis, arthritis, sports injuries, old injuries, sprains and strains, bruises (including deep bruises), shin splints, tennis elbow, nerve pain, and post surgery pain.
Practicing aikido for years, I have a frequent need for the rapid effects of Warrior Mist. Having used it for regularly for a long time, I appreciate how quickly it relieves pain like joint pain or sprains. It also works spectacularly for bruises, cuts, abrasions, burns, bug bites, and many other applications.
TESTIMONIAL: "This really works. I had tried several other products, including prescription medications, and little success. There was a noticeable difference after my first use of the product." – Amazon customer
Warrior Mist comes in a convenient one-ounce spray bottle. I shake the bottle and then add a few pumps—or as many as I need—to my non-pumping hand and rub onto the affected area. You can also spray it directly onto skin before rubbing it in with a clean hand. If you need more, you can always unscrew the cap and pour directly into your hand or onto skin, but I usually only reserve this action for times when I'm at the end of the bottle and I want to use all the Warrior Mist remaining in the bottle.
The small bottle travels well, and I usually take it with me whenever I travel. I also keep a bottle ready in a small hiking kit that I carry with me on the trail. While I may not always need it, nevertheless it is there. I cannot count how often I used it when I've least expected to need it. Sprained ankles or swollen fingers heal a lot faster than you might expect, compared to not having Warrior Mist around. It even works well on things like mosquito bites—and helps repel them.
Warrior Mist can be combined effectively with other natural topical products, especially Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil (see video). I often mix a little Warrior Mist with Magnesium Oil in my palm. This mix gives me all the benefits of Warrior Mist with the added boost of extra magnesium chloride that speeds healing.
WARRIOR MIST BENEFITS
Warrior Mist offers rapid pain relief and many other benefits:
• RAPID, EFFECTIVE PAIN RELIEF – Formulated as a fast-acting pain reliever using only natural ingredients
• LONG LASTING – pain relief last eight hours (or more) per use. This is a natural formula, so you will eventually need to re-apply it. But fewer applications means more time living life pain free.
• SAFE – 100% natural formula. This means that unlike prescription drugs or many over-the-counter medicines, there are no harsh or dangerous side effects.
• RAPID HEALING. Not only effectively relieves pain, but also supports rapid healing at the cellular level. It thereby supports healing at the sources of pain. i.e., helps with the underlying causes of pain.
• REDUCES MUSCLE SORENESS AND TENSION. Another benefit of direct topical application of natural, yet powerful (mostly herbal) ingredients. While this has obvious benefits for athletes,it also helps weekend warriors, or anyone who has muscle soreness due to any reason!
• INCREASES CIRCULATION. Increased circulation is a significant healthy benefit in itself, allowing better oxygenation of tissues, supporting healing, reducing stagnation of blood, and boosting processes of detoxification.
• LESSENS INFLAMMATION. Inflamatory processes can be harmful to the body. Warrior Mist helps reduce inflammation naturally, and thereby lessens free-radical damage from it, for example. This significantly supports your healing process.
• TISSUE REPAIR. When the ingredients in Warrior Mist penetrate tissues, then those tissues can begin the process of healing and repair, and do it faster!
• HEALS SKIN IRRITATIONS. A major added benefit is the healing of "minor" skin irritations, cuts, abrasions, etc. This is because the ingredients in Warrior Mist™ do double duty as superb nutrients for the skin.
• SCAR REDUCTION. Warrior Mist™ can soften scar tissues and stimulate the kind of deep healing that results in smaller scars and improved appearance of scars.
TESTIMONIAL: "Warrior Mist is the only product that I have found which truly relieves the osteoarthritis pain in my knee!! I am amazed by the speed and effectiveness of Warrior Mist. As an older person who has planned and worked to be able to complete my life in my own home, Warrior Mist contributes enormously to my ability to do that! Thank you for this excellent product!" – Amazon customer
WHY IS WARRIOR MIST EFFECTIVE?
Warrior Mist™ is a revolutionary skin, muscle, and joint support formula that uses DMSO, olive oil, coconut oil, and water as base (or carrier) ingredients that transdermally transport the other ingredients directly to the site of the problem where they work together harmoniously and effectively.
Functional ingredients carried to the site of pain include: peppermint oil (the primary source of menthol in the product), magnesium chloride, MSM, lemon oil, and lavender oil. Each of the functional ingredients (and their amounts) were carefully selected for their ability to stop pain, to help the body overcome the causes of pain, to promote healing at the local level, or to work synergistically with the other ingredients. Warrior Mist is 100% all-natural and totally safe!
As a topical analgesic, Warrior Mist conforms to the proposed rules set forth in FDA Monograph 348. The label used on the current Warrior Mist (1 oz spray bottle) meets the requirements set forth in this monograph. Even though there are a number of ingredients in Warrior Mist that can potentially provide temporary pain relief, the FDA monograph only recognizes the ingredient menthol, the major ingredient in peppermint oil, as an allowable active ingredient. According to the monograph, we can only mention menthol as the active ingredient and all other ingredients must be labelled as inactive ingredients.
The truth is that all the ingredients (functional and base/carrier ingredients) add up to a synergistic formula that rapidly relieves pain in a single, easy-to-apply topical product. What more could you ask for?
Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), a by-product of the wood industry, has been in use as a commercial solvent since 1953. Furthermore, in 125 countries throughout the world doctors prescribe it for a variety of issues, including inflammation. DMSO has been used widely as a carrier in topical analgesic formulas. Laboratory studies have shown that DMSO is able to block peripheral nerve C fibers.
Burns, cuts, and sprains have been treated with DMSO. Relief is reported to be almost immediate, lasting up to 6 hours. DMSO reduces inflammation by several mechanisms. It is an antioxidant, a scavenger of the free radicals that gather at the site of injury. Studies have shown DMSO to be one of the safest ingredients known with a toxicity similar to that of water.
DMSO has long been used to promote healing both in animals and humans. Those who have used it for minor cuts and burns report that recovery is speedy. Several studies have documented DMSO use with soft tissue damage, local tissue death, skin ulcers, and burns. Applied topically and repeatedly, DMSO flattens the raised, nodular, lobed liner mass of scar tissue in keloids and acne.
MSM is a naturally occurring nutrient found in normal human diets. In the body DMSO and MSM, which form each other, are indistinguishable in their biochemical effects. They reach a equilibrium distribution between them that is dependent on the local body chemistry, and is independent of which one you start with. The metabolic enhancement mechanism of MSM and DMSO is that of an exceptionally effective oxygen transport system. This system is made particularly effective by the feature that both DMSO and MSM are highly soluble in both oil and water.
MSM makes cell walls permeable, allowing water and nutrients to freely flow into cells and allowing wastes and toxins to properly flow out. The body uses MSM along with Vitamin C to create new healthy cells, and MSM provides the flexible bond between the cells. Without proper levels of MSM, our bodies are unable to build healthy cells, and this leads to problems such as lost flexibility, scar tissue, wrinkles, varicose veins, hardened arteries, damaged lung tissues, dry cracking skin, digestive disorders, joint problems, and inability to defend against allergic reactions to food, animals and plants.
The applications of MSM include pain control (analgesic), inflammation control, dilation of blood vessels, increased blood flow, reduced muscle spasm, altering the crosslinking process in collagen (e.g., reducing scar tissue,) anti-parasitic effects (particularly against Giardia), and immune normalizing effects. MSM has a unique ability to pass through cellular membranes (including skin).
The primary constituent of peppermint oil is menthol, which causes a physical reaction when inhaled or applied to the skin. Menthol produces an immediate and pronounced sensation of coolness that effects the body quite noticeably, and creates a "warming effect" as blood flows into the area of application.
Peppermint oil can be used externally for providing relief from pain. Peppermint oil increases your immunity. It also improves blood circulation. Additional of the uses of peppermint oil include:acne, asthma, colds, cramps, dermatitis, exhaustion, influenza, headache, insect bites, mental fatigue, migraine, nausea, nerve pain, neuralgia, poor circulation, and respiratory disorders.
Lavender oil helps in treating migraines, headaches, anxiety, depression, nervous tension and emotional stress. The refreshing aroma removes nervous exhaustion and restlessness and increases mental activity. Because it induces sleep, it is often recommended for insomnia. Lavender oil is also an excellent remedy for various types of pains including those caused by sore muscles, tense muscles, muscular aches, rheumatism, sprains, backache,and lumbago. A regular massage with lavender oil can provide relief from pain in the joints.
Lavender oil is also good for improving blood circulation in the body. The health benefits of lavender oil for the skin can be attributed to its antiseptic and antifungal properties. It is used to treat various skin conditions, including acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammatory conditions. It heals wounds, cuts, burns, and sunburns rapidly because it aids in the formation of scar tissues. It is also effective against insect bites. The oil also repels mosquitoes and moths.
Lemon oil is powerfully astringent and antiseptic. Lemon oil is detoxifying and is therefore good for blemishes associated with oily skin. Lemon oil is a powerful antioxidant and is a tonic for supporting the nervous and sympathetic nervous system. It's been long known that lemon oil is anti-infective, antibacterial (especially with spores), and antiviral. It can function as a disinfectant and exerts vitamin P-like action for improving microcirculation, promotes white blood cell formation, and improves immune function. It has also been widely used in skin care to cleanse skin and reduce wrinkles.
Magnesium chloride applied to the skin is an effective means for increasing magnesium levels in the body, and is particularly useful for relieving sore muscles and joints, and reducing pain related to functional magnesium deficiency. It is also proven for use in helping to calm “nerves” and reduce systemic bodily stress. Because the magnesium targets muscle tissues, it is thereby especially useful for replenishing depleted soft tissues and helping restore proper function.
Magnesium is necessary for the production of energy in the body. When the body receives adequate amounts of magnesium, it can produce the levels of energy required to sustain the body and enable it to thrive. Magnesium chloride is proven for use in a variety of general applications, including bruises, cramps, muscle tension, and migraine headaches.
Used as a base and mixed with other essential oils, olive oil makes a wonderful oil for skin health. In fact, it has been touted as one of the oldest healing and beauty techniques. A biblical reference from about 493 BCE documents the daily massage with olive oil and other oils as a part of the beauty regimen.
Coconut oil is a superb skin lotion because it both nourishes skin and is naturally anti-bacterial, antiviral, and antifungal due to its high content of medium chain triglycerides
DIRECTIONS: Shake bottle before applying. Wash hands before and after use. Apply in a thin layer to a clean, dry, and lotion-free area needing support. Shave thick hair that may prevent absorption by the skin. Gently massage the area of application to assist absorption. Reapply as needed 3–4 times daily. Contains DMSO, a known solvent. Use on people or pets at your own discretion.
USES: Warrior Mist™ is an all-natural skin, muscle, and joint support formula.
WARNINGS: For external use only. May cause temporary (up to 45 minutes) skin irritation, heating, or flushing upon use. Discontinue use if temporary skin conditions persist. Do not use on wounds or severely damaged skin. Do not bandage tightly. Avoid contact with eyes. Flush eyes with cool water if exposed. Do not use if allergic to any ingredients. Stop use and visit a health care professional if reason for use continues for more than one week. If swallowed get medical help or call a Poison Control Center. Consult a health care professional before use if pregnant.
Warrior Mist topical formula is highly effective for pain relief. A major advantage is that it is a natural formula (available without a prescription) and can safely be re-applied whenever necessary. Another benefit is that it lacks the side effects common to prescription pain medications.
Try Warrior Mist for yourself. If you're like me, you will want to keep a bottle or two ready for the aches and pains of daily life. Use it as often as you need it. Be a warrior!
We can all stand to be more alkaline. The majority of people are acidic due to diet and lifestyle. One of the best formulas for creating alkalinity is pH Adjust. pH Adjust is a good-tasting, fluffy white powder that dissolves easily in water, juice, and yes, coffee.
Shortly after launching pH Adjust as a new product, we began receiving reports from customers that they used pH Adjust in their coffee.
Why put pH Adjust into coffee? Well, first it is a pleasant and convenient carrier for pH Adjust. Second, and most importantly, coffee is acid-forming in the body. By putting pH Adjust directly into coffee, you both can counteract acidity and simultaneously alkalinize the body.
My questions: Was coffee creating acid condition in my body? And would putting pH Adjust in my coffee make a a difference? Short answer: Yes.
I enjoy coffee. I don't drink it all the time. But after hearing customer comments, I decided to try pH Adjust in my coffee. Within a day or two, I noticed my teeth were stronger! This was welcome news.
In fact, I had been dealing with a few "minor" dental issues, including teeth chipping, enamel wear, and occasional tooth pain. My diet is good and I eat plenty of vegetables and fruits. So how could my teeth be compromised?
I measured my pH using Hydrion pH paper. It was lower than I thought it would be. Simply put: I was more acidic, more of the time, than I knew. Does acidity weaken teeth? Yes, it does.
pH Adjust alkalinizes the body rapidly. It dissolves easily in water, coffee & most drinks.
"Bicarbonate reserves" decline as we age. This makes us more acidic because we don't buffer acidity as easily as we did when younger. The body must then draw upon minerals in bones and teeth. Yet, even young people are overly acidic in modern society. Everyone who is acidic stands to benefit from increased pH levels. That means most of us.
The proof that acidity causes weaker teeth is the fact that pH Adjust immediately stopped my tooth chipping, enamel wear, and pain. Good thing I put pH Adjust into coffee shortly after HPDI introduced it. And thanks to the customers, employees, and friends of HPDI who told me about it.
ALKALINIZING COFFEE IS HEALTHIER
Coffee with pH Adjust is healthier than plain coffee because it helps alkalinize the body. Taking pH Adjust (without coffee) accomplishes the same thing. But for those who enjoy coffee, adding pH Adjust is an easy way to alkalinize what can otherwise be an acidifying drink. Who wants acidity? Not me.
I now use pH Adjust in coffee by directly adding a 1/2 to 1 teaspoon directly into coffee and stirring. I adjust the dose according to how much coffee I drink.
I also take pH Adjust separately from coffee—usually once or twice daily—about one teaspoon per dose. Taking 1–2 teaspoons total of pH Adjust daily seems to be the right amount. I no longer have issues with my teeth. My bones feel stronger, too.
If you drink coffee, then adding pH Adjust to make it "pH Adjust coffee" may be helpful to you. It reduces acidity and supports mineral balance. It especially provides good levels of potassium and magnesium, minerals that are required for good health—and that are deficient in most people.
If coffee is driving acidity in your body, then pH Adjust may be just the thing for you. Putting pH Adjust in your coffee directly means stopping acidity at the source. pH Adjust dissolves easily in coffee (and most other drinks) and does not add a bad taste. In fact, many people, including me, enjoy the gently sweet flavor it imparts.
Test pH using Hydrion litmus paper.
KETOGENIC COFFEE WITH pH ADJUST
More recently, I discovered the benefits of using organic coconut or MCT oil in coffee with organic pasture butter or ghee. This is based on the concept of Bulletproof coffee popularized by Dave Asprey in his Bulletproof Diet, and it fits well into ketogenic diets. Ketogenic diets are low in carbohydrates, high in fats, and include plenty of high-quality protein.
I do not follow a ketogenic diet per se. Yet, I consume relatively high amounts of "good" fats (like coconut, olive, and avocado oils) and few simple carbohydrates. I had even added coconut oil, butter, and ghee into my coffee years ago. But I never blended it into an emulsified concoction, nor was pH Adjust available. So this is truly different!
MAKE KETO COFFEE
I make ketogenic or "keto" coffee using freshly ground organic coffee, organic coconut oil and/or organic MCT oil, and organic unsalted ghee (or pasture butter). It is important the ingredients be organic and pasture fed when possible.
I first brew the coffee, then add coconut oil or MCT oil, and butter or ghee. Then I use a hand blender (or regular blender) to mix completely.
Put freshly brewed coffee in a blender or large container (like a mason jar). Add coconut oil/MCT oil, ghee, and pH Adjust. Blend or use hand blender to mix well. It is important the coffee be hot (or at least warm) in order for the coconut/MCT oil and ghee to mix into it.
You can add the pH Adjust either before or after you mix or blend the coffee. I personally stir in the pH Adjust manually using a long spoon after I've already mixed the other ingredients. If you add the pH Adjust after mixing the other ingredients, then be sure to stir well.
Note on amounts: the amounts I list above are suggestions. I often use less coconut or MCT oil, or ghee. That is, some days I use just two teaspoons of coconut/MCT oil, or one rounded teaspoon of ghee. Try using different amounts of ingredients to see what works for you.
Grass-fed ghee is a key ingredient in keto coffee.
One reason for using less coconut/MCT oil or ghee is because this coffee can be "filling." I am not hungry after I drink it. This is one benefit according to keto coffee experts. In fact, it is recommended that users drink it in the morning before eating. This gives the option of putting off breakfast.
If I have planned to eat breakfast, then I will often use less coconut or MCT oil. The lower level of satiety from the coffee means I eat breakfast without having already been filled by the keto coffee.
Make keto coffee any time of day. It is probably best on an empty stomach and definitely not too late into the afternoon—unless you want to be up late (if coffee affects you that way). You can make it early in the day, and then consume it over the course of the morning and afternoon.
Benefits of Coffee or Keto Coffee with pH Adjust
• Alkalinizes body — an alkaline state is good for overall health
• Provides minerals, especially potassium and magnesium
• May help strengthen teeth and bones
• Some users report improved digestion
• Some users report reduced GERD
• Some users report less Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
• Potassium helps balance out sodium — and is required for cellular health
• Magnesium is essential for 400 enzyme systems, production of ATP, cardiovascular health, and muscle relaxation
• Many other benefits!
There are many other benefits associated with an alkaline state, which is ideally a pH of 7.35–7.45. You can learn more about the benefits of alkalinization from earlier HPDI blog articles (see resources section below), doing web searches, or talking to your health professional.
If these benefits are not sufficient reason to try using pH Adjust in your coffee to make "pH Adjust alkalinizing coffee" then consider doing it for the taste!
Tip: To make this coffee more hydrating, try adding 8-16 drops of Patrick Flanagan's Crystal Energy, which makes the water in this drink more bioavailable.
KETO COFFEE TASTES GOOD
Keto coffee tastes good. The oils and fats provide a rich, hearty taste. It is creamy, warm, and delicious. And as I mentioned, it is filling, so it satisfies hunger.
Adding pH Adjust to keto coffee won't change the taste much. In fact, many people say adding pH Adjust makes it taste better. I agree. This may be due to the fact that the formula contains glycine in the form of potassium glycinate. Glycine tastes good and is naturally "sweet" without the harmful effects of sugar. In fact, to me pH Adjust imparts a slightly sweet flavor that is reminiscent of "caramel."
pH Adjust may slightly change the texture of your coffee. It may make regular, non-keto coffee appear and taste "creamier." Most people won't mind that. As for keto coffee, it is already "creamy" due to the coconut/MCT oil and ghee. pH Adjust might just add a bit more texture to it.
Also, there may be a slight chalky, white residue at the bottom of your cup. This does not happen if you mix in the pH Adjust formula well, or if you re-stir (or swirl) the coffee cup or glass when it's half full. Remember: if you see this residue, it is pH Adjust. As such, you may wish to drink it as is, or add little more liquid (coffee, water, etc.) and quaff it down.
Mix the MCT or coconut oil and ghee (or butter) using a blender or stick blender.
DRINK pH ADJUST FOR ALKALINITY
To me, the most important thing about coffee or keto coffee with pH Adjust is not how it tastes or how it reduces hunger, etc. It is how is increases pH levels. Alkalinity is important for health. No matter how you choose to take or drink it, pH Adjust will alkalinize. In spades.
Besides coffee, you can add pH Adjust to juices, teas, smoothies, shakes, water, and even lemonade. The fact is, taking pH Adjust is more important than the drink you choose to take it with. You decide the drink.
That being said, I really like keto coffee with pH Adjust. I add ice for a delightful, cooling concoction in summer. In winter, I drink it hot.
I think you will enjoy keto coffee with pH Adjust, too. And, if you already brew and drink your own version of keto coffee, then increased alkalinity—and better health—is as simple as adding a spoonful of pH Adjust. ~
