In recent years, the alkaline diet has gained much notoriety. A multitude of alkalising diet and drink products have hit the wellness market, resulting in a lot of confusion about their benefits. Let’s clear some things up.

No food or drink can alter the pH balance of your blood. In fact, our bodies naturally maintain a pH of about 7.4, no matter what we choose to eat. However, it’s HOW the body maintains that balance that’s the key.
The typical Western diet of processed foods, ​sugar​, animal protein, and additives pushes the pH balance towards the acidic end of the scale. The body has to work against this to restore the natural balance. It’s this constant stress of counteracting the acidic overload that leads to damage and disease over time.

When we take alkaline foods, we’re actively supporting our body in this process, tipping the scales away from the acid side, and easing the stress.

Without this support, the body can struggle to maintain its natural blood pH. To compensate, it can leach vital minerals out of our tissues, accelerating the aging process and creating a state of ​chronic inflammation​ .
Endurance athletes like cyclists, runners, and triathletes have a particular need for pH balance support since intense exercise increases the acidity of the blood.

While a diet of fresh alkaline foods is recommended, it can be challenging to get enough fruit and vegetables every day. Your daily scoop of Racing Greens contains the equivalent of around six servings of fruit and vegetables — with no chopping, peeling, or kitchen prep required. Getting your greens in a glass frees up a lot of time, and a lot of space in the fridge.

Each serving of Racing Greens includes:

  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Kale
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Ginger
  • Beetroot
  • Sweet Potato
  • Carrot
  • Lemon
  • Orange
  • Kiwifruit
  • Cranberries
  • Blueberries
  • Red Pepper
  • Aubergine
  • Elderberries

The Racing Greens drink is a convenient way to get the benefits of daily alkalising support. The blend of barley grass powder, fruit and vegetables, plus special phytonutrient-rich green algae (Chlorella and Spirulina) is a powerful alkalising cocktail.

So whether you’re a cyclist, another athlete, or you’re just busy with an active life, a daily alkaline boost will help you to maintain a healthy balance. Just add water to a scoop of Racing Greens, and start the
day with your complete “5 a day” allowance, plus a whole suite of energising nutraceuticals formulated to power your ride, and the rest of your day.
