Alkaline Foods

Alkaline Foods - Support Healthy Living
Alkaline Foods – Support Healthy Living

Alkaline foods are essential for healthy living. An alkaline environment in the body supports healthy functioning white blood cells and the immune system, and Dr. Vega’s video shows you why.

You will find that a large percentage of natural foods are alkaline foods. Natural provides us an abundance of alkaline foods which is excellent for us because our bodily fluid should exist in a slightly alkaline state. The foods we eat dictates if our bodies are alkaline or acidic.

Science confirms that the blood and fluids of the body should be slightly alkaline at a pH of 7.365 -7.4. PH stands for “Potential Hydrogen” and is the ability of molecules to attractive hydrogen ions.

When there are to many hydrogen ions in the body the body becomes acidic. Too many hydrogen ions floating around the bloodstream keeps the body from getting proper amounts of oxygen.

A lack of oxygen results in fatigue and sickness because the cells in the body don’t have the energy to do their jobs properly. Alkaline foods solve this problem.

Alkaline Foods Vs Acidic Foods

Most natural foods are highly, moderately, or lowly alkaline foods. Just a few natural foods are acidic foods, and they are not highly acidic. Natural alkaline foods include vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, and whole-food grains.

Many fruits are acidic in nature, like oranges, but when they are digested they are broken down into an alkaline ash within the body and so they are also listed as alkaline foods.

If we stop to analyze this we will see that nature is telling us something. Nature wants to heal us and keep us strong because our bodies are made from the natural balance substances of the earth that natural foods are made up of.

We move away from the natural balance of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, proteins, and fatty acids that nature has provided to keep us healthy and strong, in favor of large quantities of meat, diary, processed foods. ad junk foods.

Factory farmed meat, dairy, and processed foods strongly acidify the body and cause illness, while alkaline foods fight illness and support healthy living.

An acidic body promotes a lack of energy, stress, toxin buildup, bacteria, fungus, and viruses.

Some acidic foods include: pork, beef, chicken, fast foods, high fructose corn syrup, processed sugars, cheese, dairy, and junk food.

Some alkaline foods include: limes, kale, cayenne pepper, walnuts, garbanzo beans, and wheat grass.

This “alkaline food list” and nutritional guide is full of alkaline foods that will detoxify your body, fight disease, and support healthy living. The nutritional guide is also the foundation of my plant based diet.

This alkaline and acid food list also lists acidic foods so you have and idea of which foods are acidic and are harmful to the body.
