It serves to be the catalyst in achieving better result nourishing the body by hydrating cells that actively create over 5,000 enzymes that organize and relegate the body's 25,000 digestive processes and functions.
Eating real food balances health by leaving the body untaxed with food complications of the digestive process. Our bodies are biophysical energy machines that require fuel in the form of foods we eat. For most people the idea is limited to a limited freedom of choice between yes or no to protein, carbs and calories that fuel and nourish us. Yet, we should be thinking fruits and vegetables, amino acids, essential minerals, enough water, etc., in terms of adequate nourishment for our mind, body, but most importantly the diversification of bacteria in our stomach gut the microbiome. Protecting the trillions and trillions of microbes, bacteria and diversification in our stomach gut is one of the most important and overlooked aspects of our nutrition and contributing factors to our health.
WATER IS LIFE
Our body consists of up to 70% water and supports the biggest organ of all, our skin. Most people we speak with drink less than 1-4 bottles a day of an average size 16ozs of water found at most convenience stores and vending machines. It is recommended to drink at least one liter a day or if possible up to one gallon. Water hydrates the skin and nourishes the cells to create enzymes for cellular reproduction and collagen induction.

The acne face map serves to show the key areas of interest in regards to issues someone may have with their skin.
THE BODY'S MICROBIOME
The food receptor for everyone is our stomach gut. Having a healthy stomach gut allows the better assimilation of food that will serve our health and beauty. Our living body is made up trillions and trillions of cells, microbes, bacteria, living organisms, fungi, protozoa and viruses. This makes up pretty much who we are and every other living thing in existence. Our genes and DNA consist of about 1% of who we are biologically, while the other 99% of living matter is our microbiome or stomach gut.
FREE RADICALS PLAY A BIG ROLE IN HOW WE EAT AND FEEL
Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that have one or more unpaired electrons, so to gain stability they attack stable molecules, triggering a chain reaction that damages healthy cells. This is what can damage our skin and organ tissue. Because we are creatures of habit, often the repetitious consumption of the same foods week over week, and even within our own family recipes and cultures' diet, contribute most to what we think 'runs in the family' as genetic predisposition; and is largely affected by an individual or family's diet of food and lifestyle of similar choices.
DON'T PANIC IT'S ORGANIC
There's a growing movement of health progressively leading towards eating more organically. Eating organic foods is the best way to have a healthier life and create better wellness of your overall stomach gut the microbiome. The idea of high cost for organic products is no longer as valid as even five years. At certain shopping locations the cost may be more, seemingly outweighing the benefits, yet overall prices aren't that unreasonable, thanks to companies like Sprouts, Wal-Mart or Amazon's purchase of Whole Foods. These titans of industry have lowered costs to appeal to more shoppers globally. Organic foods allow your good stomach bacteria to flourish without being destroyed by chemicals. Food is easier assimilated and the body is nourish unhindered by inflammation.
ALKALIZE YOUR BODY
When we eat the right foods our body's digestion and normal organ functions are unhindered by chemicals that create inflammation. Eating 'acidic' foods throws off our PH balance (PH stands for potential hydrogen). By eating alkalizing foods we are able to lower or maintain an even homeostasis. Eating for essential minerals and vitamins should be how our diet is based so that assimilation and digestion of food can add health benefits not tax the body. Many of our foods today taste good but only because they have been engineered to 'taste good' but provide unhealthy elements of sugar, salt, fat or heat of inflammation; as most fast or processed foods can unfortunately offer. Try including alkalized foods with your meals helps to maintain good digestion and lower potential inflammation.
Antioxidants help heal and repair signs of aging in the face and body, cool and reduce skin tissue inflammation, potentially prevent skin cancer and assist in brightening skin. Environmental factors like pollution, excessive light and heat, and sun exposure, alcohol & cigarette smoke and other toxic chemicals cause oxidative stress and dysbiosis imbalance in the body. Eating antioxidants gives the body the ability to counter and detoxify these harmful influences on our microbiome / stomach gut.
