Alkaline vs Acidic: Maintain pH Balance

Alkaline Foods

Do you suffer from headaches or digestive issues?

Could your body be too acidic, causing these issues plus other health concerns?

Unfortunately, whenever you eat such a large number of acidic food varieties, your system becomes unbalanced. As a result, it can cause many health problems, including weight gain, poor concentration, headaches, digestive issues and exhaustion, which prompt more serious medical conditions.

The concept behind the pH alkaline diet is to maintain a balance of pH in the food varieties you choose to eat. The body is slightly alkaline, and therefore your wellbeing should eat a diet regimen of 80% of alkalising food varieties that are better for your wellbeing and help adjust your body's pH and eating 20% acidic foods (see list below).

Acidic food varieties are acid-forming in the human body. They make blood, lymph and saliva more acid and cause a lower pH number. On the other hand, alkaline food sources make blood, lymph and salivation more alkaline and generate a higher pH.

What Is The Normal pH Range?

The pH scale is 1 to 14; 1 is very acidic, and 14 is very alkaline. The blood in the human body tends to run slightly alkaline at 7.35. The normal range for saliva pH is somewhere between 7.3 and 7.4. The normal urine pH range is between 4.5 and 8. Any pH higher than 8 is basic or alkaline, and any under 6 is acidic.The vast majority, in any case, are acidic and have a lower pH. 

Alkaline Foods vs Acidic Foods

What is the difference between alkaline foods vs acidic foods? The body cannot function at its peak when it becomes too acidic. Alkaline foods increase assimilation at the cellular level and allow cells to operate in the manner they should. There is a reduction of parasites and yeast overgrowth by consuming alkaline foods. Alkaline foods promote deeper and more restful sleep, youthful skin, relieve suffering from colds, headaches, and digestive issues, plus eliminate other health problems. 

Acidic foods can cause the body to break down prematurely. Studies suggest that a consistent interruption in the acid-base equilibrium causes persistent metabolic acidosis. Such continuous high acidity in the body could cause a tendency to some diseases in the long run. ‌

When you eat acidic foods makes you age quicker. Vitamins and minerals are not absorbed as easily. Friendly bacteria in the small digestive tract die off, harming the digestive system's capacity and restraining the ability of gastrointestinal walls to ingest nutrients. Cells become stressed with the toxins that build up and cannot remove them. Therefore, the body cannot function at its optimum when it becomes too acidic.

Which Alkalising Foods To Eat Regularly For Optimal Health?

Vegetables and some fruits are the most straightforward ways of getting more alkaline into your diet for optimal health. Protein can be an issue while endeavouring to add more alkaline to your diet. This is because all protein derived from animals is acidic. 

Minerals are essential for ideal wellbeing. Focusing on which minerals have alkalising impacts can add the appropriate equilibrium to your blood pH such as Percy's Powder. Minerals that significantly affect the body are: potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium.
