Health benefits of alkaline diet

 

Balance is important in all aspects of life, and so is in health and the food we eat. pH balance is something most people don’t know or care to know about and end up having food that are not good for health in the long run.  
 
Awareness is important and we need to keep our eyes and ears open to adopt the best practices to keep in good health. Any food that is more acidic in nature or helps acid formation in the body in more than the required quantity has a pH balance of less than 6 and thus should be avoided or minimised. 
 
In other words, food with lower pH value must be avoided for their high acidic content. Anything more than 8 or 9 in its pH content is also not that healthy because of more than necessary alkaline content, and thus the balance has to be maintained. However, the tilt should be towards more alkaline rich food than acid-forming food because a higher alkaline level is more acceptable than a higher acidic level in food. 
 
Researchers say that alkaline food should form about 70 percent of our daily diet regimen while acidic food should be about 30 percent. Fresh natural food like grams, pulses, vegetables, nuts, seeds, soybean, herbal or lemon tea etc are alkaline-rich food which must have a major share in our diet, while fish, meat, processed food items, dairy products and fast food have high acidic properties which lead to imbalances in bodily health.
 
 If we are a little careful and choosy about the food we eat, we can have a longer and happier life. If we take a diet rich in acidic content, our body will have to extract the alkaline properties from our bones, teeth, organs and blood to maintain the balance and this, in the long run, leaves us fragile with a weakened immune system. 
 
On the other hand, if we are eating alkaline rich diet, our body naturally gets important minerals like magnesium, phosphorous and calcium and it is not unduly stressed. Further, a highly acidic diet also promotes the growth of yeasts and fungi in the body. 
 
With alkaline diet, these gradually perish. Also in certain types of chemotherapy treatment, it is an alkaline diet that boosts their effectiveness. There are evidence that chronic back pain is mitigated by the enhanced intake of alkaline diet. An alkaline diet helps in keeping weight in check and helps in weight loss.-Window To News
