Have you ever encountered a diet plan that is either rich or low in alkaline foods? While there are numerous diets that talk about what to eat and what to avoid, there are those that require choosing alkalinity over acidity.
So what is alkaline and what are the benefits of an alkaline body?
Scientific Evidence You Need To Know.
In the Journal of Environmental and Public Health, researchers found that diets rich in alkaline-containing foods significantly reduce calcium losses found in the urine. This is an indication that alkalinity can potentially slow down the onset of osteoporosis especially in adults.
An enzyme called alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is responsible for breaking down phosphates in the body. High levels of this enzyme was found to significantly increase the overall mortality in heart-related death. For people with gut problems, maintaining alkalinity in the body is proven to decease a good amount of bad bacteria in the digestive tract.
How to achieve an Alkaline Body.
There is no other way than to eat alkaline foods. Anything that you ingest has significant changes in your body’s PH level. That is why the first thing you need do is to get to know which foods are high in alkaline. For example:
- Most citrus fruits and vegetables are alkaline.
- Seaweeds and sea salt are great alkaline-containing foods.
- Nuts are included in the list, specifically chestnuts, almonds, and cashews.
