  • Milk, coffee, tea, OH and tobacco produce inflammation of the digestive system.
  • Caffeine and OH are vasoconstrictors
  • Milk is very difficult to digest. The casein protein that is in milk accumulates as soon as it enters the digestive system. Doing the slow and heavy digestion. The homogenization and pasteurization oxidize and modify the elements contained in the milk.
  • Calcium is fixed in blood between 9 and 10 milligrams. When you drink milk, it increases suddenly. But with this happens the same as with sugar and insulin. Your body reverses the processes to eliminate as much calcium as possible.
  • If calcium accumulates in the cells arteriosclerosis and increased blood pressure occurs
  • Magnesium is a regulator of calcium
  • The balance of sodium and potassium is a prerequisite for life. Without them, neither muscles nor nerves work. With enough ingestion of vegetables and fruits we supply potassium to regain balance with sodium.
