Cancer can't live in an alkaline body. Here are some amazing alkaline foods to keep YOUR body safe!
Every time we eat food it either results in an acidic blood pH or an alkaline blood pH, which in turn has a major impact on our health and overall well-being. Studies have demonstrated that the more we alkalize the body, the better we function and the more energized we also feel.
To make this more simple, an alkaline state promotes good health, prevents disease and improves quality of life both in terms of length and depth. It can also help us to lose weight, kill cancer cells, prevent heart disease, and keep us feeling young.
On the contrary, acid forming foods, which include meat, eggs, dairy, coffee, alcohol, sodas, sugars, sweeteners, fried foods, fish, canned foods and dried fruits among others can produce an unhealthy physical state if not balanced correctly and can be a breeding ground for dangerous diseases.
Unfortunately, modern diets and traditional eating habits and lifestyles are usually highly acidic, and therefore dangerous. Learning about this can also be time consuming because we all have so much going on in our personal lives. But there’s good news! There are many healthy foods (that are also delicious) out there which can help you change this around in no time!
