Are you aware if foods are highly acidic or not?
Closed

There are food types that are highly acidic, there are also foods that are highly alkanic. According to an evidence based review article, written by Joe Leech, MS. About the Alkaline Diet.

"According to the acid-ash hypothesis, acidic ash is thought to make you vulnerable to illness and disease, whereas alkaline ash is considered protective."

Our normal blood pH is between 7.35- 7.45, means its slightly alkaline. according to medicinenet.com.

Another article says that "The billions of cells in our bodies must maintain alkalinity, in order to function and stay alive. Disease can only grow in an acidic body, which makes a condition favorable for the growth of bacteria, yeast, fungus, mold, viruses, and any other unwanted organisms. Cancer always strikes those with an over-acidic body." (source: atlantaclassicalhomeopathy.com)

I've read that acid forming foods are the highly processed foods, refined carbohydrates, softdrinks, or sodas, sugar, caffeine, meat, and alcohol.

When our body contains too much acid forming foods. Our body tends to compensate to balance our blood'd pH. Calcium tends to be depleted too when theres too much acid in the body, which can result to lower bone density. Too much acidity could also exacerbate other health conditions.

The Alkaline foods are the green leafy vegetables, cruciferous vegetables, root vegetables, tofu, nuts, seeds, herbal teas, kombucha, fruits, spices such as turmeric, ginger, herbs, garlic, cumin and more. So eating more of these foods could help us balance our blood pH when we consume highly acidic foods. :)

Moreover, not only foods make our body alkaline or acidic. Emotions such as anger, hate, sadness, despair, and loneliness also change your body chemistry to acidic. Happy emotions, such as love, make your body pH alkaline.(source:atlantaclassicalhomeopathy.com).

These makes me aware about foods and how foods affect our body's pH, and i'd like to share about this learnings, knowledge and discoveries.

What about you? Are you aware if foods are highly acidic or not?

All I know is that alcoholic beverage, soda, and coffee are acidic foods. I haven't thought of alkaline food.
