What is an Alkaline pH Level?

What is an Alkaline pH?

What is Alkalizing? Well it's the opposite of Acidic. Most of us probably have an acidic pH level in our body. Remember those litmus papers from high school lab? Well we can use those to test our urine or saliva to see what our pH level is. We ideally want to score at least in the 6-7 range.

What causes an acidic level:

  • coffee
  • meat
  • dairy
  • beer
  • aspartame
  • chocolate
  • vinegar
  • soda

What creates an alkaline level?

  • leafy greens
  • lemons (tricky because before entering your body they are acidic)
  • olive oil
  • most fruits and vegetables
  • herbal teas
  • fish

It is now known that a more alkaline pH level is most desirable in order to lose weight and keep it off and ward off disease. Obesity is actually linked to an acidic pH level. This is because acid is a waste product of our body after it uses energy and then it needs to get out of our body by either sweating, urinating, etc. If we are fueling our body with acidic foods and liquids the acid/alkaline balance is out of whack and the acid builds up as fat.

Some other undesirable effects of acid buildup are:

  • weak immune system
  • chronic fatique
  • speeds up aging process
  • higher likeliness of cancerous mutations
  • digestion/elimination problems
  • diabeties

Some desirable effects of alkalizing your body are:

  • thin body that keeps the weight off
  • disease free body
  • youthful appearance slows down the aging process
  • promotes healthy cell growth (non mutated)
  • feel energized
  • digest and eliminate properly

I just felt I urgently had to write about this topic and like to give small changes that aren't too overwhelming so until my next post here are things you can start changing today!

What you can start doing:

  • add fresh squeezed lemons to your water
  • cut back on coffee

This is a primer post about what is an alkaline pH level and how to become more alkaline.

Apparently disease cannot exist in an alkaline environment that's a pretty cool thing to know
