You are here on our blog because you want to live a healthy, long life. Made in Oasis has created a Nutrition Guide to assist you in that goal. This guide is free to download, and we include a printed copy with every purchase of Sea Moss +. We recommend keeping a copy in your kitchen and taking it with you when you shop for groceries.
In our research, we feel the alkaline diet is one of the best ways to support long term health and prevent disease. That is why Sea Moss + is specifically formulated with vegan ingredients supportive of the alkaline diet.
Do You Have to Follow the Alkaline Diet Perfectly to Take Sea Moss +?
No, our supplement can help anyone in their wellness goals, regardless of their diet. However, Made in Oasis products do produce better results when you follow this guide. But if you aren't ready to make the switch today, we recommend you start with the Alkaline Nutrition Guide and work these foods into your diet whenever possible. You will find they are delicious and have the nutrients you need to feel good every day. If you can, start to replace foods you already eat with the suggestions from the guide. For example, choose organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible. As you change your diet, you will feel the difference in your energy levels and see the difference on the scale.
Benefits of the Made in Oasis Alkaline Nutrition Guide
Made in Oasis wants to assist you in the selection of the best food for your wellbeing. The alkaline diet is not difficult once you get used to it, but it can take a little time to get the hang of it. That is why we produced this guide. Take it with you whenever you shop, and you will have all the information you need at your fingertips.
Why We Chose The Foods We Did
The Alkaline Nutrition Guide recommends eating organic, unprocessed, whole fruits and vegetables. Animal products like meat and dairy should be avoided. We also urge you to avoid all processed foods. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, highly processed foods contain added sweeteners, fats, salts, artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. These ingredients are added to increase shelf life and make them more palatable (turn them into foods you can't stop eating.) (1) None of this is good for your health!
The alkaline diet is about getting back to the types of whole, natural foods we should be eating. We suggest eating organic and non-GMO fruits, vegetables, and grains because these are closest to their original forms. These foods have nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to support your overall health and help you lose weight.
Let's look at a few examples:
- Leafy Greens and Sea Vegetables
- Chickpeas (Garbanzos)
- Apples, Cherries, and Berries
- Bell Peppers
- Turnip Greens
- Dandelion Greens
- Sesame Seeds
This information comes from the FDA Vitamins and Minerals Chart and is just a small sample of the nutrition you will get from foods on the Made in Oasis Nutrition Guide. (2) However, because even organic fruits and vegetables can pick up contaminants between the farm to the grocery store shelf, we encourage you to wash all produce in a mix of water and apple cider vinegar before eating.
Additional Recommendations for the Alkaline Diet
Beverages: In addition to processed foods, research shows that the consumption of sugary drinks like soda, juice, and energy drinks is one of the leading causes of obesity. Consumption of these drinks has also been shown to increase your risk of diabetes and cancer. (3,4) Coffee is overly acidic, and along with that, many people drink their coffee with dairy products and sugar.
Alcohol comes with its own set of problems. Health risks from drinking alcohol include high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, stroke, liver disease, and digestive issues. (5) Even a couple of drinks can cause health problems. Alcohol doesn't hydrate - it actually does the opposite. A hangover is short term dehydration. The symptoms of dehydration are dry mouth, vomiting or nausea, fatigue, and headaches. (6) Sound familiar? That is why we advise removing all of these products from your diet. Replace these beverages with a gallon of alkaline natural spring water per day, alkaline smoothies or alkaline natural juices and the nutrition guide's natural teas. Your body will thank you!
The Alkaline Diet and Sea Moss +
Sea Moss + offers similar benefits to the Alkaline Diet, which is why they work so well together. Like the alkaline diet, Sea Moss + contains no animal products but is packed with vitamins and minerals. Our supplement contains ingredients that have provided nutrition and health benefits for generations, just as the alkaline diet endeavors to return to the most authentic and nutritious food.
You will see that sea vegetables and kelps are listed in the Nutrition Guide. Sea Moss + contains two essential seaweeds. Irish Sea Moss is a rich source of 92 essential minerals known to support a healthy heart and promote digestion. And our unique formula also contains Bladder Wrack, another nutritious seaweed. Bladder Wrack can help with sexual health and support thyroid function.
If you look under the recommended teas on the Nutrition Guide, you will see Burdock Root. Burdock Root is a powerful antioxidant that has been widely used in traditional medicine. Studies show that it can help reduce fatigue, increase energy, and assist with diabetes symptoms.
