There are over 157 degenerative diseases directly linked to chronic acidity and inflammation, such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, asthma, and MS. the list is very long.
Our food sources no longer contain the minerals necessary to neutralize the acids our bodies normally produce in metabolic processes or that are produced by toxins or by mental and emotional states of stress, such as worry, fear, and anxiety.
Viruses, bacteria cancer cells, and other pathogens thrive in an environment that is acidic. An acidic environment is also void of oxygen and charges (voltage) our cells and body need to be healthy normally. When our bodies are slightly alkaline, our tissues are oxygenated, we produce healthy immune cells, and we have enough charge to produce sufficient energy in our cells so our bodies function normally.
Our bodies rely on the alkalinity of minerals (and vitamins as co-factors to minerals) to neutralize acids and maintain a healthy pH balance.
Many factors upset this balance. For example:
When our diets are mineral-deficient, our bodies become acidic, our tissues become inflamed, and eventually we become prone to disease.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts to eat a well-balanced diet, our crop plants contain only a fraction, as much as 80% less, of the Humic and Fulvic and the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients they contained a century ago, according to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Why is this So?
Fertilizers and pesticides used in modern agricultural practices destroy the microorganisms in the soil that produce Humic and Fulvic. Even organic farming methods that protect the microorganisms deplete the Humic and Fulvic because they are used by plants faster than they can be replaced naturally. Some organic farmers are now supplementing soils with Humic as part of a Sustainable Agricultural Program.
The cellular environment of the average American is acidic (pH 4-6).
This is NOT HEALTHY! Research has shown a chronic acidic cellular environment causes chronic tissue inflammation and can eventually cause a degenerative disease.
Degenerative Disease has a much harder time taking hold when the pH of the body is balanced and slightly alkaline.
There are now 157 degenerative diseases, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, MS, osteoporosis, lupus, and Parkinson's, the list is long, that are linked to chronic acidity and inflammation.
DID YOU KNOW?
Once one of these degenerative diseases is present in the body, the risk for developing another rises dramatically. For example, diabetics have an eightfold greater risk of also developing heart disease than people who are not diabetic.
Other effects of Chronic Body Acidity are:

pH BALANCER™, Alkalizing Red Formula NOT ONLY Provides Serious Alkaline Support
IT ALSO Provides Comprehensive Nutritional Support Help to Meet Our Daily Nutritional Needs"¦
In fact, it includes everything in our Comprehensive Wellness Nutrition Formula.
pH BALANCER™, Alkalizing Red Formula ALSO PROVIDES EXTRA HEALTH AND WELLNESS SUPPORT IN THESE VITAL AREAS:
YOU SIMPLY CAN'T BUY A BETTER TOTAL, All-Inclusive, Multivitamin, Multimineral Nutritional Health Supplement...That Provides the Nutritional Support Your Body Needs to Help it Achieve Optimum Health and Vitality!
Or With Serious Alkalizing Support to Help Restore and Maintain the Acid-Alkaline Balance of the Body!
Most pH balance systems on the market today sell acid, alkaline support, comprehensive nutritional support, special complexes, and herbals and botanicals for cleansing and detox in separate products that cost hundreds of dollars.
There is no need to continue to take handfuls of different products to achieve all that is already in pH BALANCER. The task would be very hard and and very expensive anyway. And these different products would have a hard time matching the quality in pH BALANCER. Ingredients in pH BALANCER are natural and not synthetic. They are in the "Cell-Ready" form our bodies can use naturally so that they provide maximum benefit.
A combination of minerals and co-factors make for very important partners that help restore and maintain a healthier pH balance.
Why is this so?
Calcium is one of the major elements used in maintaining your blood's pH, and consequently the acid-alkaline balance of your entire body.
However, calcium works in concert with the other acid neutralizers, Magnesium, Sodium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Iron, Manganese, Strontium, and Silica. Proper calcium metabolism requires these minerals and co-factors such as Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2.
Vitamin K2 deficiencies are very prevalent. Vitamin K2 is necessary to activate a substance called osteocalcin that is essential for calcium to be incorporated and stored in bone.
Vitamin K2 also activates another protein called matrix GLA protein (MGP) in soft tissue that is responsible for removing excess calcium that can accumulate in soft tissues such as arteries and veins.
This is significant because consider that about 20% of atherosclerotic plaques are comprised of calcium from the early to more advanced stages of heart disease development. Supplementing calcium alone may even contribute to cardiovascular disease.
Vitamin K2 activated MGP is considered the strongest factor in preventing and possibly even reversing tissue calcification involved in atherosclerosis, as described in the October 2008 issue of Thrombosis and Haemostasis.
Other landmark studies include the European Journal of Nutrition in 2004 (Beyond Deficiency: potential benefits of increased intakes of Vitamin K2 for bone and vascular health) and Journal of Nutrition in 2004 (dietary intake of Vitamin K2 is associated with a reduced risk of coronary artery disease: the Rotterdam study).
Also included is a Select Alkalizing and Cleansing Herbal Botanical Group:
Artichoke (Cynara scolymus) (leaf) packed with phytonutrients such as quercetin, rutin, gallic acid, and cynarin, all working to protect against many health risks because of these powerful antioxidants;
Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis) one of nature's most effective detoxifiers and cleansers. It is cooling and anti-inflammatory, which also help the immune system. Too much inflammation in the body can cause problems within the immune system and can cause conditions like asthma, eczema, and Crohn's disease. Soothing herbs like Aloe Vera can slow the inflammatory cascade and help the immune response stay ahead of the game;
Dandelion Greens (Taraxacum officinale) are loaded with calcium and antioxidants, and help cleanse the liver. Dandelion Greens inhibit interleukins and other immune molecules that trigger inflammation. Dandelion may also control inflammation by suppressing COX-2 enzymes, the molecules that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs target, according to Leah Hechtman, author of the book Clinical Naturopathic Medicine. A tissue culture study published in the August 2010 issue of the Journal of Medicinal Food found that Dandelion Greens extract significantly suppressed nitric oxide, prostaglandins, and cytokines, all pro-inflammatory molecules;
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric and it has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. Curcumin actually targets multiple steps in the inflammatory pathway at the molecular level. It blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases.
Methylation is involved in almost every bodily biochemical reaction and occurs millions of times every second in our cells.
The Methylation and Methionine Cycles are biochemical cycles that are interdependent and their proper function is critical for our good health.
Unfortunately, it is estimated that 40% - 50% of Americans have issues with these cycles to varying degrees.
Lowered methylation function may contribute to many, major chronic conditions, including:
THE GOOD NEWS...
Practitioners are finding that if patients supplement B vitamins in their natural forms and other nutrients, steps in the Methionine and Methylation cycles where there are genetic variants can be overcome.
For example, about 30% - 40% of Americans can't convert momocysteine well because of genetic variants of the MTHFR enzyme in the methylation cycle causing them to have some difficulty resynthesizing methionine from homocysteine.
Homocysteine is a highly inflammatory substance when in excess. Higher homocysteine levels have been demonstrated to be a factor in inflammatory processes that promote cardiovascular disease, mental illness such as depression, and perhaps other health conditions such as fatigue and exhaustion.
By supplementing with natural folate (not folic acid)
Most supplements on the market today do not offer a vitamin B complex group that is in its natural forms. Most are synthetic, partially or completely. Synthetic forms, such as folic acid, can even prevent many biochemical processes from occurring.
Patients who take supplements to help correct Methionine and Methylation defects cannot bypass these defective enzyme steps by supplementing synthetic B vitamins.
Natural B vitamins, especially folate (not folic acid) can help bypass these defective enzyme steps and even help prevent disease.

The Methylation Cycle is a biochemical pathway that manages or contributes to a wide range of crucial bodily functions, including:
Our bodies naturally produce free radicals in metabolic processes, and the antioxidants our bodies naturally produce can typically handle this challenge. Usually this is in balanced.
However, in our modern world of stress, exposure to toxins, and lack of nutrition in our diets, this balance can easily tip and more damaging free radicals prevail.
If you have ever seen a downed power line sparking and bouncing around after a storm, it is similar to the action of a free radical in our body, it ricochets around, its unbalanced electrical charge zapping cells, damaging cell membranes, and affecting a cell's membrane electrical potential resulting in cells that can't operate as they should. Cells can eventually die.
When our bodies are in a state of chronic acidity and inflammation (as most Americans' bodies are), more free radicals are produced than the body can normally handle. Oxidative stress is a result of too many free radicals / oxidants and not enough antioxidants. Oxidative Stress causes a great deal of cell, tissue, and organ damage.
Acidity also causes cell and tissue damage, which produces more free radicals. More free radicals cause even more cell and tissue damage. Toxins also create free radicals. Furthermore, stress is an extreme acid and free radical producer.

Canary Island Marine Algae (phlorotannin extract);
and Resveratrol (trans) (Polygonum cuspidatum root).
Citrus Bioflavonoids are rich in Rutin and Quercetin, which are the strongest flavonoid antioxidants.
Our bodies naturally maintain a healthy microbial balance, and we rely on the effects of beneficial microbes.
When we receive all the nutrition our bodies need, our amazing immune system functions in tiptop shape and can produce enough healthy immune cells to help maintain this balance and also meet the challenges of invading pathogens.
Problems arise when we lose this balance. Chronic body acidity is one way we lose this balance; prescription medications and toxin exposure are others. Toxins are excreted by Candida yeast (fungus) or bacteria and other microbe overgrowth. Stress is another primary cause of chronic body acidity, which has become "normal", and we don't even realize we are experiencing this chronic stress anymore.
Microbes also thrive in acidic conditions, and these organisms produce even more acid.
Minerals are critical as alkalizing agents and in the production process of healthy immune cells. Chronic Body Acidity also results in the production of fewer and weaker immune cells at a time when we need them most to help "clean up" the cellular debris from damaged cells and tissues caused by acidity, oxidative stress, and free radicals, and to also protect us from pathogen challenges.
Chronic Body Acidity also taxes our weakened immune systems by creating environments where pathogens and cancer cells thrive, and the system can more easily become overwhelmed (it may surprise you to know our bodies produce cancer cells regularly, which healthy immune cells recognize and destroy).
Garlic has potent antimicrobial, antiseptic, antifungal properties, which is why it was used to treat infected wounds and amoebic dysentery during World War I. Garlic is also effective against common yeast (Candida albicans) infections;
Olive Leaf has strong antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, antiparasitic; and antioxidant properties;
Clove Bud has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiseptic properties;
Pau D'Arco (common name Taheebo) preparations derived from the bark have been traditionally used to treat bacterial, fungal, viral infections, and cancer. In vitro studies of compounds isolated from Pau D'Arco demonstrated antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antipsoriatic, immunomodulatory, anticancer, and antimetastatic activities;
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) 99% potent anti-Candida (yeast) agent, provides sulfur for the production of antibodies (important in immune response), and is an anti-inflammatory;
Cloves contain some of the same phenols as Oil of Oregano, namely carvacrol and thymol, among others, which are highly antifungal in nature, as well as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory;
Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) in addition to antioxidant effects also has antibacterial activity;
Grape Seed Extract contains a high concentration of polyphenols, which are antioxidants, and also possesses the ability to help the body fight viruses, allergens, and seek out carcinogens as anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anticancer, and antimicrobial agents;
Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) Proanthocyanidins found in cranberry differ from those found in other plants by their unique structures and very potent antibacterial activity. In the case of UTIs, these proanthocyanidins prevent E. coli from adhering to the urethra and bladder. Consumption of cranberries also turns urine acidic. This, together with the inhibition of bacterial adhesion property of cranberry juice, helps prevent the formation of alkaline (calcium ammonium phosphate) stones in the urinary tract by working against bacterial infections;
Elderberry (Sambuscus nigra) contains bioflavonoids and other proteins that destroy the ability of cold and flu viruses to infect a cell. People with the flu who took elderberry juice reported less severe symptoms and felt better much faster than those who did not.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies, especially of trace minerals, affect our bodies' ability to carry out the metabolic activities that keep us alive. Normal metabolic activities also produce acidic byproducts that accumulate in our cells when we are mineral and vitamin deficient.
Once acids start to accumulate in our cells, oxygen is depleted "” oxygen is critical for normal energy production (aerobic= "with oxygen" respiration). When oxygen levels are too low, energy production (cellular respiration) converts to an anaerobic ("without oxygen") state that produces an even stronger acid (lactic acid) than CO2 as a byproduct "” the same that is produced in muscle cells that you feel after activity that is too vigorous"¦your muscles can really hurt for days. We typically cannot feel lactic acid's effects in other tissues because they are not innervated like muscle tissue.
When our BODIES ARE ACIDIC we basically lose OUR ENERGY or CHARGE.
Giving our metabolism a boost is important in deacidifying, detoxifying, and cleansing all the cells in our bodies.
Mother Earth Labs' pH BALANCERâ„¢ - Alkalizing Red Formula also contains herbal and botanical components well known for their ability to help give our metabolic level a boost:
Thermogenic Polyphenols in Green Tea, Ginger, and Cinnamon are included as herbal support to further boost metabolic levels;
Coenzyme Q-10 is a coenzyme that's needed by every cell in the body to produce energy. It serves its energy-enhancing function by acting in the portion of the cell known as the mitochondria, often referred to as the powerhouse of the cell. Here, it aids in the production of ATP, the most important form of energy needed to drive cell reactions and keep the body running at peak capacity;
Resveratrol (trans) (Polygonum cuspidatum root) helps prevent insulin resistance, a condition in which the body becomes less sensitive to the effects of the blood sugar-lowering hormone, insulin. Insulin resistance is a precursor to diabetes;
Blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium) Research suggests that chlorogenic acid in these berries help lower blood sugar levels and control blood glucose levels in type II diabetes mellitus condition.
Cell Membrane Electrical Potential Enhancement, A membrane's electrical potential enables our cells to pass nutrients inside and acidic wastes outside the cell through the cell's membrane"¦
Humic and Fulvic's electrical potential boost improves the ability of our cells to release accumulated acids"¦and helps our cells receive the nutrition they need"¦and we feel more energized.
Without this electrical potential, cellular function becomes impaired, and eventually, the cell will die.
Stress, lack of proper nutrition, and an acidic cellular environment lowers the electrical potential of our cells and is one of the reasons we feel fatigued and drained of energy.
Humic and Fulvic and the minerals they carry are Nature's most potent electrolytes (polyelectrolytes) because of their ability to carry a positive or negative charge depending on a particular cell's need.
FULVIC MOLECULES are like "mini batteries," imparting energy and vitality, which results in the increase of the vibratory level of our cells and our entire body. Energetic therapy you can feel.
FULVIC has been called "THE SPARK OF LIFE" because of its ability to help restore and maintain the electrical potential and energetic dynamics of the cell membrane!
Once membrane energetics and processes are restored, cells can deacidify, detoxify, cleanse, and oxygenate themselves. Naturally.
Our cardiovascular and lymphatic systems help to provide nutrients and oxygen, remove acidic wastes and toxins from our cells and tissues, and expel them from the body.
Mother Earth Labs' pH BALANCERâ„¢ - Alkalizing Red Formula also contains herbal and botanical components well known for their ability to help give our cardiovascular and lymphatic systems a boost:
Acai Berry (Euterpe oleracea mart) Antioxidants, fiber, and heart-healthy fats;
Co-Q10 and Hawthorn Berry help fight heart disease and promote heart health;
Essential Fatty Acids are fats the body needs to maintain good health. They are also fats the body cannot make and so must come from the diet;
Flax Oil (rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids) Studies show that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids help lower cholesterol and blood triglycerides and prevent clots in arteries, which may result in strokes, heart attacks, and thromboses. Helps protect the body against high blood pressure, inflammation, water retention, sticky platelets, and lowered immune function. Helps prevent Atherosclerosis (the accumulation of fatty deposits inside the blood vessels, especially the large and medium-sized arteries);
Borage Oil, Lecithin, and Evening Primrose (GLA) are rich sources of gamma linoleic acid (GLA), an omega-6 essential fatty acid that the body converts to the anti-inflammatory prostaglandin E1 (PGE1), a hormone-like substance that is important for the smooth muscle system, blood vessel function, moderation of blood pressure, and control of inflammation;
Phosphatides (phospholipids) Choline and Inositol in Sunflower Lecithin are major components of cell membranes and protect against hardening of the arteries and heart disease by promoting normal processing of fat and cholesterol. Lecithin itself helps to bind fats and cholesterol to water so that they can pass through the body rather than cause a potentially harmful buildup in the heart or liver;
TMG (as beta anhydrous), or Trimethylglycine, is used to protect against the damaging effects of a toxic amino acid called homocysteine, which has been linked to cardiovascular and Alzheimer's disease;
Green Tea rich in Catechin Polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful antioxidant. It has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots;
Grape Seed Extract delays the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins, the fats that are responsible for "bad cholesterol." The longer it takes for LDL to oxidize, the less likely it is to start clogging up your veins and arteries. People who drink purple grape juice can show an increase in oxidation lag time of 27%;
Digestive enzymes (see details under digestive support) help increase the oxygenation of the blood;
The Multi-Fiber Complex (see details under digestive support) aids in the reduction of cholesterol;
Red Korean Ginseng, Ginger, Cayenne, and Garlic helps to improve cardiovascular and lymphatic circulation;
Pomegranate (4:1 fruit extract) (Punica granatum) has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and has been found to be particularly beneficial in improving symptoms of coronary heart disease and periodontitis (gum disease) "” a marker of heart disease.
Pomegranate juice offers wide protection against cardiovascular disease by reducing:
Macrophage lipid peroxidation;
Development of atherosclerosis, stress-induced myocardial ischemia in patients who have CHD;
Systolic blood pressure;
Thickening of the carotid artery.
A 2004 study that appeared in Clinical Nutrition found that 19 patients with severe atherosclerosis of the carotid arteries who drank about two ounces of pomegranate juice each day for three years had remarkable results. Ultrasound tests showed that narrowing of the arteries decreased by 35% on average in the pomegranate group, while the condition worsened by nearly 10% in the control group. The average systolic blood pressure was also significantly lowered in the group that drank pomegranate juice;
Blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium) The most powerful of the berry antioxidants and has also been demonstrated to prevent oxidative and inflammatory stress on the lining of blood vessels and red blood cells;
Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) (0.8% eleutherosides);
Wild Bilberry (Vaccinium myritillus) Contains anthocyanosides, which are potent antioxidants that strengthen blood vessels and capillary walls; improve red blood cells; stabilize collagen tissues such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage; and has cholesterol-lowering effects. They also increase retinal pigments that allow the eye to tolerate light.
In addition, Wild Bilberry helps to maintain the flexibility of red blood cells, allowing them to pass through the capillaries and supply oxygen. The herb has been shown to be a vasodilator that opens blood vessels and lowers blood pressure;
Strawberry (Fragaria chiloensis) A potent antioxidant, high in vitamin C, and contains two flavonoids, in particular quercetin and kaempferol, that research has shown help keep "bad" LDL cholesterol from oxidizing and damaging artery walls. Regular consumption of anthocyanins, a class of flavonoids found in berries, can reduce the risk of a heart attack.
The high polyphenol content in strawberries may also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) by preventing platelet buildup and reducing blood pressure via anti-inflammatory mechanisms;
Resveratrol (trans) (Polygonum cuspidatum root) helps reduce inflammation, prevents the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, and makes it more difficult for platelets to stick together and form the clots that can lead to a heart attack;
Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) Contains antioxidant compounds such as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), anthocyanidin flavonoids, cyanidin, peonidin, and quercetin that may prevent cardiovascular disease by counteracting cholesterol plaque formation in the heart and blood vessels. Furthermore, these compounds help the human body lower LDL cholesterol levels and increase HDL good cholesterol levels in the blood;
Citrus Bioflavonoids improve capillary permeability and circulation. Flavonoids are highly effective at preventing and treating varicose veins. They help maintain normal blood pressure, and assist with swelling, edema, and respiration in the lungs.
Hesperidin in particular is often used for the treatment of varicose veins and hemorrhoids. A deficiency of hesperidin in the diet has been linked with abnormal capillary function, extremity pain, and leg cramps. (Hesperidin is found most abundantly in the peel and membranous parts of lemons and oranges.)
Toxins are in the foods we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe, practically everywhere. Also, if we are acidic, acid is the most potent toxin in our body"¦and it is everywhere"¦
When we receive all the nutrition our bodies need so our cells are functioning in tiptop shape, our tissues and organs, which are made up of cells, also function well.
With proper nutrition and hydration, our amazing bodies do a remarkable job of ridding our bodies of normal metabolic wastes and many of the toxins we are exposed to.
One of the major problems associated with Chronic Body Acidity is our body's inability to eliminate acidic wastes and toxins from our cells, tissues, and organs "” they build up and the problem worsens. A detoxification or cleansing of the body organs is an attempt to jumpstart the efficiency of our organs and starts to rid the body of a buildup of acids and toxins.

Diaphoretic Herbs: Elder, Garlic, Burdock Root to help gently stimulate sweat glands to remove acids and toxins from the skin.
Our digestive system works to digest food with digestive enzymes and other secretions, absorb nutrients and water, and expel acidic wastes and toxins.
When digestion and colon function are not working well, the body operates in a state known as "auto-intoxication" "”meaning the body is working hard to get rid of toxins and acidic wastes, but they are being recycled through absorption from fecal material in the colon rather than expelled.
The main function of the colon is to absorb water and minerals (maintain the body's fluid and electrolyte balance) and vitamins from undigested food, and the formation and elimination of feces "” which contain acidic and toxic wastes.
Fecal material can easily become compacted "” or worse, impacted "” as our body tries to reclaim the vitamins and minerals missing from our diets, or water when we don't hydrate properly, or fiber when our food does not contain adequate amounts of it.
More water is lost during vitamin and mineral absorption. Our bodies over secrete mucous to try to pass compacted fecal material.
When our digestive enzymes are not working properly, more food is undigested, and can putrefy and can become highly acidic and toxic when it remains in our digestive tract too long, as is the case when fecal material becomes compacted or impacted. Bacteria, yeast, and fungus thrive in this environment and themselves secrete acidic toxins.
All of this is being reabsorbed back into the body.
The Goal of Digestive Therapy is to help restore the colon's primary functions by providing all the dietary vitamins, minerals, and fiber our body needs, along with proper hydration, to naturally eliminate acidic wastes and toxins.
Digestion-Resistant Maltodextrin, Apple Pectin (Malus domestica) A soluble fiber that has been shown to increase the excretion of lipids, cholesterol, and bile acids, and reduce serum cholesterol levels;

Appetite centers in the brain are stimulated when nutrients are required "” including missing trace mineral elements and even water. If we are vitamin and mineral deficient, these appetite centers are over stimulated. Also, in a state of Chronic Body Acidity, our bodies will produce excess fat, primarily around our mid-section, to store excess acids and protect vital organs. Dieting is very difficult because your body is fighting you every step of the way. Leading weight loss programs try to supplement vitamins and minerals while recommending foods such as fruits and vegetables that are not acid-producing (including citrus fruits) to balance the diet and do not allow consumption of diet soft drinks, which are highly acid-producing and so stimulate appetite.
Humic and Fulvic provide all the vitamins and minerals the body needs to prevent stimulation of appetite centers in the brain that result from vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
Our bodies create proteins from amino acids.
THE FUNCTION OF PROTEINS
In virtually every biological process that takes place in our bodies, proteins are playing a role. They:
Amino Acids are the building blocks to make proteins. There are 20 amino acids.
These 20 amino acids can be arranged in millions of different ways to create millions of different proteins, each one with a specific function in the body.
We receive protein from the foods we eat. When a source of protein has all nine essential amino acids, which are amino acids your body can't produce itself and needs to get from food, that food is said to be a complete protein.
