Our body is alkaline. When we consume foods that are acidic, our body needs to neutralize them in order to maintain the body’s pH levels. This is done by breaking down the bones and teeth for calcium and magnesium and the muscles for ammonia to neutralize the acid. That’s why acidic foods are so dangerous and alkaline foods are so good for us.
Acidic Foods All animal products are highly acidic. This means all kinds of meat, fish, poultry and dairy. Most processed foods are acidic and any items that I call ‘non-foods’ are acidic too, such as:
Sugar Salt Alcohol Vinegar All of these are also used as preservatives since most bacteria tend to not grow in acidic media. Most packaged foods have acids added to them to preserve them. You will see that their ingredient list has citric acid, tartaric acid, acid regulators and so on. This is another reason why packaged foods should be avoided. Not only do they often contain oil, sugar, white flour, milk solids and other ingredients that are not good for you, they also contain in
Unfortunately, some of our favourite beverages are also acidic: Tea Coffee Aerated beverages like colas and other sodas Wine and alcoholic beverages
The main ingredients in drinks like Pepsi and Coke are sugar, phosphoric acid and caffeine. All of these are highly acidic.
Protection against Kidney Disease and a Cure for Urinary Tract Infections
The process of trying to digest acidic food causes the breakdown of bones and muscles and leaches calcium out of the body, which puts excess load on the kidneys. Some of the calcium may be deposited as stones in the kidneys, causing further problems. People with urinary tract infections are usually given medication to make their urine alkaline to control the infection. Bacteria that cause this infection are partial to acidic medium. By making the urine alkaline, these bacteria cease to thrive. We can easily do this without taking any medicines, by just avoiding acidic foods.
Harmful bacteria and even cancer do not thrive in Alkaline environment .
The best thing you can do to your body is to give alkaline dose early morning
Wheat grass is the best thing and strong alkaline agent , keep having this on regular basis .
When things burn, an ash residue is left behind. Similarly, the foods you eat also leave an “ash” residue known as metabolic waste.
As it turns out, this metabolic waste can be alkaline — also called neutral — or acidic. metabolic waste can directly affect your body’s acidity.
In other words, if you eat foods that leave acidic ash, it makes your blood more acidic. If you eat foods that leave alkaline ash, it makes your blood more alkaline.
According to the acid-ash hypothesis, acidic ash is thought to make you vulnerable to illness and disease, whereas alkaline ash is considered protective.
By choosing more alkaline foods, you should be able to “alkalize” your body and improve health.
