Chew C Berry
Our Chew C Berry® product was specially formulated to supply the healthy benefits of vitamin C supplementation in a great-tasting, chewable, natural form, as well as for use with the Morter Nutrition Program pH testing procedures to determine the alkaline/acid levels and how that affects our overall potential for health.
The delicate balance of the acid/alkaline minerals in your system is measured by pH testing. Simply put, the pH of the body reflects the amount of minerals, which are readily available. A foundational premise of the Morter Nutritional Program is pH balance, and this balance is reflected in the saliva and urine of the body. Simple testing of your saliva pH helps you evaluate your alkalinity and mineral reserve, and determines how your body is dealing with stress. It’s a health index evaluation process, not a disease identifying process.
Saliva pH testing is done in two stages: a before and after. The “before” gives you the pH of your saliva when you haven’t eaten anything for 2 hours. The “after” pH shows the response to a sudden, intense “influx” of acid. Chew C Berry® is used as a healthy way to provide the introduction of an acid into the equation. The objective is to determine if the response of body, reflected in the saliva pH, to the Chew C Berry® is appropriate.
For additional information on the actual pH testing protocol, we have a complete pH Test Kit, which includes Chew C Berry® for your convenience.
Vitamin C is necessary for growth development and repair of all body tissues. Often used to improve the immune system, studies show vitamin C, when taken for colds and flu, can reduce the risk of developing further complications such as pneumonia and lung infections.
Recent research, reflected on WebMD, shows vitamin C was beneficial to individuals whose immune system was weakened due to stress. The study found, “because vitamin C is one of the nutrients sensitive to stress, and [is] the first nutrient to be depleted in alcoholics, smokers, and obese individuals, it makes it an ideal marker for overall health.”
It is also involved in protein metabolism. It’s an important antioxidant and has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body.
Health is dynamic – ever changing. Promoting health is a way of life – not a one-time thing. When you realize your body responds to everything you put into your mouth, eating takes on a whole new flavor! Monitoring your saliva pH with the help of Chew C Berry®, can encourage you to make better choices and take charge of your health.
For alkaline reserve testing, eat or drink nothing for 1 hour before testing. Test pH of saliva before placing tablet in mouth. Place one tablet on tongue and wet with saliva. Do not chew the tablet. Leave tablet on tongue for 15 seconds, then remove the tablet. Retest pH in 20 seconds after swallowing 4 times. Individual testing procedures may vary as recommended by your physician.
Directions: As a dietary supplement, chew one tablet daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
- Store in a cool, dry place. Keep out of reach of children.
- Warning: Consult a healthcare professional before taking this product if you are pregnant or nursing. Always consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement.
B.E.S.T. Process Alka•Line® Supplements are not heat treated, so the enzymatically active ingredients remain alive for maximum effectiveness.
Why are enzymes so important?
Enzymes break down the food you eat and release valuable nutrients so they can be absorbed by the blood and used to build and repair vital organs and tissue. Also, this process produces the energy we need to maintain a strong immune system.
Since enzymes are not stored by the body, it is vital to maintain a helathy nutritional balance in the body to allow it to continually produce enough enzymes to keep the body strong, protecting us from disease.
Alka•Line® products help provide the raw materials the body needs to make enzymes. They provide the necessary colloidal minerals found organically in whole foods like fruits and vegetables while maintining live enzymes whenever possible to aid the body’s digestive process.
The problem is excess protein!
Eating too much of a good thing – protein – causes excess acid to accumulate in our bodies, leading to toxicity and disease. Our cells become congested with excess protein, forcing the pH (acid/alkaline balance) of our body’s life-sustaining fluids, which are normally alkaline, down to abnormal, cell-stifling, disease-producing levels of toxic acidity.
Cells normally live in an alkaline environment and produce acid as a by-product, which is easily eliminated by the lungs. As foods are digested, they create a residue called ash, which is alkaline, neutral or acid. Fruits and vegetables produce a healthy alkaline ash. But, meats, grains, eggs and dairy products leave an acid ash. Over-consumption of these foods results in so much acid that the body can become toxic, leading to the disease proccess. That’s the Protein Paradox. Adequate protein is vital to keep cells healthy, but too much protein makes cells toxic and leads to disease.
B.E.S.T. Process Alka•Line® Supplements can help your body restore its natural alkalinity, put you back on the road to health, and help return your body to its natural state – healthy and functioning perfectly!
You can maintain life, health, and vitality by consuming three times as much alkaline-forming as acid-forming foods. But changing the eating habits of a lifetime is very difficult for most of us.
That’s how B.E.S.T. Process Alka•Line Supplements can help. As you improve your diet, these supplements assure the alkalinity so vital to your body, so you start feeling better and getting healthier. As the first step, we usually recommend Alka•Green®, our best total body alkalizer.
NOTE: As with any supplement, consult your B.E.S.T. or Medical practitioner to determine if this product is right for you.
