An Acid body means a weak immune system
You will probably have read that not just your cells, but your immune system flourishes in an alkaline environment. You may wonder how?
The short answer is Beneficial Bacteria. The gut is known to contain about 800 different strains of bacteria; 400 have been identified and about 12 keep coming up in research. To put this in context there have been over 4,000 studies and 80 clinical trials on them in the last five or six years.
We have stopped feeding the beneficial bacteria their favorite foods – fibrous whole foods, whole grains, green vegetables.
Instead we eat too much salt or drink too much alcohol that increases the gut acidity. As does meat, as does stress.
Then to make matters worse, we feed their enemies – we eat too much sugar and dairy, the favourite food of yeasts and microbes. There is nothing a yeast likes more than a molecule of glucose. Glucose is also the favourite food of a cancer cell.
This beneficial bacteria are killed through the use of antibiotics, steroids and drugs, and chlorinated tap water.
These beneficial bacteria are crucial to our very existence – something no doctor, drug company or Government Health baron seems to realise.
At night when we sleep they consume yeasts and microbes for us – up to 2.2kg. They are our first line of defense.
Their very presence stimulates our immune system. It has been estimated that these beneficial bacteria direct a whopping 85 per cent of our antibody production.
They help release crucial vitamins from our food; particularly the anti-cancer vitamins biotin, B-12, folic acid and vitamin K (all can be found in reviews in our nutritional section).
They even produce a powerful anti-cancer chemical (sodium butyrate)
They help chelate with and eliminate cancer causing oestrogenic chemicals and nitrosamines, plus heavy metals like cadmium and mercury.
Thus, the correct pH in the gut is essential for a tip-top immune system.

The Manna PH Balance were formulated to excrete excess uric acid from the body and to help regulate your bodies alkalinity.
Did you know that a the amount of sugar in a can of cola can switch off your immune system for up to 6 hours?
