Consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables has decreased giving rise to the Western acid-producing diet. Something or the other has to be done to control it otherwise the results will be too disastrous for us to imagine.
Now what is an alkaline diet?
What happens- When we eat, our food gets digested, absorbed, and metabolized, and then it releases either an acid or an alkaline base (bicarbonate) into our blood.
Alkaline levels in our body
Our blood is somewhat alkaline, consisting of a normal pH level between 7.35 and 7.45. An acidic diet disrupts this balance and encourages the loss of essential minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium, and sodium, as the body tries to restore balance and this imbalance makes you prone to numerous chronic diseases.
If you have noticed the following symptoms in you, then alkaline diet is strongly recommended for you:
1. Lack of energy
2. Excessive mucous production
3. Nasal congestion
4. Frequent colds and flu
5. Anxiety, nervousness, irritability
6. Ovarian cysts, polycystic ovaries, benign breast cysts
Alkaline diet is recommended in different variations for different bodies. First go for a reliable source and purchase a pH balance kit. Measure your alkaline content and then go for the alkaline foods accordingly.
