STORIES

Eating a well-balanced diet and exercising on a regular basis is essential to good health. Including more alkaline foods in your diet increase the alkaline content in the blood, which decreases the acid content. A more alkaline blood pH helps protect healthy cells and balance essential mineral levels. Alkaline diets protect bone density and muscle mass, lowering the risk of chronic pain and inflammation and improving immune function. Many high-alkaline foods are a delicious contribution to a healthy body.


So by now you think everyone knows it’s healthy to drink warm lime water, alkaline water, and fresh-pressed green juice. Sure, they all improve your body’s detox abilities, boost your immune system, and give you a mega dose of much-needed nourishment – but that’s because each of these drinks helps raise your body’s pH, turning your system from acid to alkaline.


When your body is in an alkaline state, it becomes more resistant to disease, inhibiting the growth of pathogenic organisms like bad bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungi and even cancer. The oxygen levels are raised in the tissues, blood and organs, allowing them to function more efficiently and effectively. Reducing acidity and maintaining an alkaline state also helps to encourage healthy cell turnover, energy production and regular toxin excretion.


While there are many factors that impact the pH levels in the body, the easiest way to influence the acid-alkaline balance is through your diet. By eating alkaline-forming foods and minimizing the consumption of acid-forming ones, your body can more easily maintain an alkaline state. Alkaline-forming foods are plant-based, and are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are typically easier to digest than acid-forming ones, improving immune function in the gut and helping to lower inflammation and mucus production.
