Alkaline Foods

Alkaline Foods

To achieve the acid/alkaline balance in the body we should consume a 80/20 mix of alkaline/acid foods.
Another method to help alkalize your body is to drink alkaline water.

Examples of alkaline foods

Wheatgrass, alfalfa, barley, grass, asparagus, broccoli, beet, celery, carrot, cauliflower, cucumber, garlic, mushrooms, sprouted pulses, onion, eggplant, lettuce, peas, pepper, pumpkin, etc.

Apple, apricot, avocado, banana, cherries, grapes, grape fruit, watermelon, peach, pear, pineapple, orange, lemon, tomato, etc.

Almonds, chestnuts, chicken breast, eggs, flaxseeds, whey protein, yoghurt, cottage cheese, etc.

Chilies, pepper, cinnamon, ginger, mustard, etc.

Apple cider vinegar, bee pollen, green tea, ginseng tea, herbal tea, etc.

This type of water has a higher pH level than does tap water. Some proponents say that alkaline water can neutralize acid in your bloodstream, boost your energy level and metabolism, and help your body absorb nutrients more effectively. Others say that alkaline water can help you resist disease and slow the aging process.

Examples of acid foods

Include red meat, fish, lobsters, turkey, olive oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, corn oil, white bread, rice, cashew nuts peanuts, soya beans, butter, soy milk, black beans, kidney beans, beer, hard liquor, wine, etc.

Please note that in the end, it is important that you do your own research to verify, to yourself, the type of diet that would be best for you. Others can suggest, yet being an informed consumer will allow you to make better decisions.
