The world is confronting with the biggest health crisis in the history. We are witnesses of people’s bad lifestyle which leads to early death. Medical studies have approved that many health problems are related to acid-alkaline balance in the human body.
So far is proven that all diseases are caused by one simple reason, and that is the huge concentration of acids waste produced in our tissue. These acids are present in all body fluids like blood, lymph, urine, and saliva. Waste acids from the body fluids travel to the joints, muscles and body organs (heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, and glands) and disrupt the pH balance in the body. This process leads to changes in the pathophysiological and metabolic function of the body organs.
Alkaline reserves in our body
Our body is a perfect machine and has a secret solution against the acid waste. Namely, the human body has huge alkaline reserves. These reserves make neutralization of the acid waste and act as a buffer for normal pH balance in the blood and the whole organism. Every change of acid-alkaline balance makes disorders in the body metabolism and provokes diseases. When we eat food rich in minerals, which make alkalinity more than we need, the excess of minerals is storing in the body. When acidity starts increasing, these minerals attack them and make normal acid-alkaline balance in our body.
The process of oxidation starts when the digestion of the consumed food is done and bloodstreams take the nutrients to the tissues. Then carboxylic acid salts and alkaline elements in the bloodstream react with the acids. A product of this biochemical reaction is weak carboxylic acid. Later, the carboxylic acid passes through our lungs as carbon dioxide and water. Despite this, inorganic alkaline and acid ions are released. Free alkaline ions neutralize the acid ions. If this process doesn’t happen, acid ions make neutralization of the alkaline reserves in our body. This is why we need to eat foods which make alkalinity in the body.
80/20 Rule diet – The gold rule
Our body doesn’t have endless sources of alkaline ions which can eliminate the waste acids. Alkaline reserves protect the organism from the toxic acids waste. But if we eat more foods which make acidity, the alkaline reserves will fade out. So our body will become weaker. For fast normalizing of the acid-alkaline balance, we must fill back the alkaline reserves. For this goal most beneficial is 80/20 rule diet.
Have you ever hear about 80/20 rule diet?
Eighty percent of consumed food must be alkaline while the rest twenty percent should be food products which make acidity in the body. Do you know which food make alkalinity in the body and on the opposite which food make the acidity? Read below…
Acid/ alkaline foods examples
Vegetables which create alkaline: parsley, chard, broccoli, squash, zucchini, red onion, cabbage, lettuce, mushrooms, spinach, carrots, and tomatoes.
Legumes which make alkaline: bean and soy products such as soy milk, soy cheese, and tofu.
Fruits which create alkalinity: lemon, watermelon, melon, papaya, kiwi, dried dates, dried figs, and pineapples. This group includes banana, grapes, orange, and apple.
From all nuts only almonds are alkaline. Peanuts, Brazil nuts, Indian nuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, and walnuts make acidity.
Vegetable oils such as avocado oil, coconut oil, olive oil, soy oil, sesame oil, and sunflower oil make alkalinity.
Acidity group: all kinds of meat, sugar, artificial sweeteners, blueberries, cranberry, plums, dried plum and refined grains. All meals prepared with white flour like pancakes, cakes, and pasta belongs in this group.
Now, when you found out which food make acidity and which make alkalinity, make the proper combination and stick to the 80/20 rule diet for healthy living. And one more extra tip: during the day drink one cup of green tea, it will make strong alkalinity in your body.
