Keeping your body balanced and functioning optimally depends almost completely on your diet. An alkaline diet can boost your energy, help you sleep better, protect against cancer and keep your mind sharp! Eating primarily alkaline foods, about 70-80%, can drastically improve your quality of life.
You may have some questions.. below are answers to our most frequently asked questions about an alkaline diet.
What does it mean for you body to be alkaline?
It means that the pH of your body is in a more alkaline rather than acidic state. The body is always trying to maintain equilibrium at a pH of 7.2, which is slightly alkaline.
Why is this good?
If your body is in a very acidic state, it will seek balance, and may do so by drawing nutrients from the bones. When the body is in an alkaline state, you will be less prone to cellular damage and disease.
What kinds of foods can you eat to help restore balance?
Green juice, leafy greens, cucumber, lemons, melons, and chia seeds are some of the more alkaline-producing foods. But almost all fruits and vegetables work to make you more alkaline.
What kinds of foods should you avoid?
Processed sugar, dairy, conventional meat, and coffee are some of the most acid-producing foods.
Don’t think that you’re limited to a short list of unappetizing food options! Other alkaline foods include: figs, molasses, almonds, beets, dates, celery, cantaloupe, parsley, garlic, cayenne peppers, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower, radishes, carrots, bananas, and tomatoes—the list goes on and on.
