To restore our health and body, we would need to focus on our diet to balance the pH level. And to do that, an alkaline diet can help you achieve a healthy pH level, rebuild your cells and your tissues, and eventually leading to a healthy body.Alkaline Diets puts a large emphasis on eating a variety of fresh vegetables, citrus fruits, nuts, tubers, and legumes, and discourages the consumption of dairy products, grains, meat, and too much salt. The diet creates the minimal alkalinity in blood, ranging from 7.35 to 7.45.This means the diet maintains the balance of acid-base homeostasis in the blood, which is the balance of acids and bases (commonly known as pH), in the body. Without this balance, the body is unable to sustain itself.
What Happens When Our Body Is Acidic?
To answer that, imagine your body as a receiver of different foods, and the intake of different foods, be it acidic or alkaline, will create a chemical effect that causes the overall pH of our body to fall within a scale. Being acidic means that our body’s pH level is less than optimal. The optimal pH level is around 7.35-7.45, slightly alkaline. This is the best environment for our cells to function well and to fight against harmful diseases.
