Getting More Alkaline into Your Diet
Getting More Alkaline into Your Diet “The PH miracle diet has revolutionized the perspective on eating.” (“PH Miracle Diet – Alkalize Your Body”) The diet aspires to achieve ph. levels of 20% acid and 80% alkaline in food intake. This aims at equaling the ph. levels of the bloodstream, which bends towards the alkaline. (“pH Miracle Diet – Getting Adequate Alkali Supplements!”)
This can be challenging for quite a few people, as the food they usually tend to indulge in is considered mostly acidic. It thus becomes important to recognize sources of alkaline content, construct a list of such foods and add them to your PH miracle diet. (“Top Weight and Fat Loss Guide Reviews”)
Alkalizing foods neutralize the acidity present in the bloodstream, thereby giving the body a sensation of rejuvenation. They regenerate and restore cells in the system and refresh the body, thus acting as a “breath of fresh air.”
Repeated intake of food high in acid content causes premature break down of the body. These “acid bombs” are carried throughout the system by the bloodstream, causing harm and posing a threat and danger to the body.
We can optimize the PH level in our blood by identifying what foods have an alkalizing property and integrating it in our diet in higher amounts. Levels 7 and greater are considered alkaline, the levels of human blood being between 7.35-7.45.
The simplest way to get alkaline into the system is by eating fruits and vegetables. Some alkalizing vegetables are: barley grass, alfalfa, beet greens, beets, carrots, cabbage, broccoli, chard greens, cauliflower, celery, collard greens, dandelions, cucumber, green beans, garlic, eggplant, green peas, kohlrabi, kale, lettuce, mustard greens, onions, nightshade veggies, peppers, peas, parsnip, radishes, pumpkin, rutabaga, spinach, sea veggies, sweet potato, sprouts, watercress, tomato, wild greens and what grass.
Some alkalizing fruits are avocados, apricots, apples, berries, bananas, blackberries, cherries, cantaloupe, coconut, cherries, currants, figs, dates, grapes, honeydew, grapefruit, limes, lemons, muskmelons, oranges, nectarines, peaches, pineapple, pears, raspberries, raisins, strawberries, rhubarb, tangerines, strawberries, tropical fruits, tomatoes, and watermelon.
In the process of addition of more alkaline in one’s diet, protein can pose a problem. All animal derived protein is acidic. But there are proteins that are alkalizing. “Some are almonds, millet, chestnuts, tofu, whey protein powder and tempeh.” (“Best Diet And Weight Loss Tips: PH Miracle Diet – Alkalize …”)
What is food without those herbs, spices, and sweeteners, which add to its character? These alkalizing embellishments can be added to your culinary endeavors to balance out the PH levels. Condiments which have an alkalizing effect are curry, cinnamon, ginger, chili pepper, mustard, sea salt, miso, stevia, tamari, and all herbs.

Minerals are also essential for health. Proper blood PH balance can be maintained by identifying which minerals are alkalizing. Some are: potassium, cesium, sodium, magnesium, and calcium.
In addition to these, there are some ingredients that make the addition of alkaline to the diet even easier. “These may be listed as: vinegar, apple cider, alkaline antioxidant water, lecithin granules, bee pollen, probiotic cultures, molasses, green juices, soured dairy products, fresh fruit juices, veggie juices, and mineral water.” (“Best Diet and Weight Loss Tips: PH Miracle Diet – Alkalize …”)
Knowledge of which foods and which supplements add alkaline to the PH levels is just the first step. Implementation, which takes commitment and planning is the next. The best way to evaluate the body’s PH level, once these foods have been added to the diet, is the saliva strip test. These tests are available in most of the health food stores. A PH between 7 and 8 boasts of good health.
“One should not forget that the aim of the PH miracle diet is to ensure that acidic intake is less than the alkaline intake.” (“Best Diet and Weight Loss Tips: PH Miracle Diet – Alkalize …”) This does not necessarily mean that one cannot consume foods that are more acidic. The balance of one’s diet should merely be geared towards alkaline foods. Maintaining an appropriate PH balance, one can ensure that the body performs at an optimum level.
