You’ve heard a lot about avoiding acidic foods because… why? Why are acidic foods bad for your body? Which foods are acidic? Is an alkaline body a healthier one? Does it really matter?
PH Balance & Your Health
Honestly? Yes, it matters. There are thousands of vital processes that your body completes every minute of every day, and they all contribute to a general state of health. No part of your body operates independently: every function, action and reaction relies upon another. A big part of your overall wellness is the pH level of your body – that vital balance of acidic and alkaline is one of the cornerstones of good health.
Examples of acidic food and drink include meat, refined sugar, processed foods, some types of dairy, soda and alcohol. If you eat and drink a large amount of these on a regular basis, and do not consume enough alkaline food and drink, then you risk developing an acidic imbalance.
If your body becomes too acidic, your health can become compromised, and at greater risk of inflammation and illness.
Symptoms of an Acidic Body
It’s true that your body thrives at a slightly alkaline pH and will strive to achieve that. So, here’s the thing: if you regularly consume acidic food and drink, you’re making it harder for your body to maintain that essential balance. If your body becomes acidic, you may start to experience mild symptoms including:
- Allergic reactions
- Skin problems, such as acne or loss of elasticity
- Weight gain
Left unchecked, if your body becomes more acidic, your symptoms might become more severe. You may then experience:
- Breathing issues
In more serious cases, you may go on to develop diabetes, bladder or kidney infections and osteoporosis. In other words, pretty serious stuff.
Eating & Drinking for an Alkaline Body
The good news? Eating and drinking for a more alkaline body is easy and delicious. Aim for foods rich in essential minerals, such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Include plenty of the following foods for an alkaline body:
- Dark green leaves such as iron-rich kale and spinach
- Cruciferous foods, such as broccoli
- Citrus fruits
- Coconut oil
- Egg white
