15 Foods to Help Alkalize Your Body
The foods that we consume affect the body’s performance and pH level. Your body’s pH ranges from 7.35-7.45 making the environment slightly alkaline. However, this pH level has to be maintained with alkaline-forming foods. Regulating itself, the body will fight to sustain a neutral state. When you eat acid-forming foods, your body fluids become acidic and can trigger Acidosis.
Acidosis occurs when there is a build-up of acid in the bloodstream. According to Healthline, the lungs and kidneys are able to compensate for pH imbalances, although problems with these organs cause an excess of acid build-up. You can help to prevent this by eating a mostly alkaline-forming diet. Here are 15 alkaline-forming foods to incorporate in your diet and alkalize the body:
We often hear to maintain the skin’s pH, although we also have to keep the body neutral. The link between eating only alkaline-forming foods and alkalizing the body isn’t fully supported. Although, we can do what we can by incorporating more of these foods in our diet. By cutting back on acid-forming foods, we can help to prevent illness and disease.
