When striving to have a healthy nutritional lifestyle one one of the recommendations is eat foods that are alkaline in nature and minimize foods/beverages that are acidic. Although your body is both alkaline & acidic, it is best to be more alkaline. There are some tests to find out where you’re at so that you can see where you land on the scale. Being too acidic can lead to being tired, digestive problems, and some research suggests that it creates an environment that when left unchecked can lead to disease and possibly cancer (this is debated).
However, its best to focus on consuming more alkaline based foods consistently to improve overall health. Here is a list:
Grasses (alfalfa, kamut, straw, shave, wheatgrass, etc.)
Sprouts (alfalfa, bean, pea, soy, etc.)
Make a conscious effort to add these into your current diet and your body will thank you for it!
