Besides its need for vitamins and minerals, the body has a natural pH balance that must be maintained within certain ranges to ensure optimal immune system function and general health. pH is a measure on a scale of 0 to 14 of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. In this system, PH 7.0 is neutral, greater than 7.0 is basic, and less than 7 is more acidic.

The body's pH balance is a fine balance between alkalinity and acidity - and extreme disruptions toward acidity can result in elevated LDL cholesterol levels, diminished immune system and organ function, oxidative stress and DNA damage, hypertension, and the onset of a number of cancers.

Western diets that are typically high in meat (protein) and carbohydrate consumption are highly acidic [because acid is needed to break down proteins and carbohydrates]. Because greens food is plant-based, greens foods help keep the body's sensitive pH balance in an alkaline and healthy state.
