Alkaline Foods and Acid Alkaline Balance in Your Body

eating alkaline foods and dietThe Human Body is Slightly Alkaline. Our cells, organs and tissues must maintain a state of slight alkalinity for our very survival. The blood that circulates throughout the body must maintain a range of slightly alkaline pH of 7.35 to 7.45.

Certain substances and foods can potentially disrupt the healthy pH of the blood lowering it to unhealthy levels. A slightly acidic blood with a pH of 6.95 can lead to coma or death.

That’s why it’s necessary to assist your body with its complex pH regulating system. An alkaline diet is a special diet that helps you achieve that outcome.

Acid-ash and Alkaline-ash Foods

As food is digested, absorbed and metabolized, foods release either acid or alkaline compounds into the blood.

Acid-ash foods are foods that leave high concentrations of chloride, phosphorus, or sulphur in their ash – they are all used to make acids in your body. Alkaline-ash foods are foods that leave high concentrations of magnesium, calcium, and potassium in their ash.

While our bodies can easily handle an occasional acid load, long-term acid build-up can exhaust our available alkalizing reserves and lower your body’s critical pH to dangerously low levels.

The Alkaline Diet – pH ‘friendly’ Diet

Modern diets are largely acid forming. Most people gamble with their health by overeating on low-mineral, high-fat and high-sugar processed and refined foods. Such diet is highly acidic in nature and is the primary cause for a string of diseases. That’s why many health experts recommend an 80/20 mix of alkaline and acid foods to keep the pH level in check.
