Do you know

what alkalinity is?

 

When we say alkalinity in the context of your body, we're talking about the pH of your blood, urine and internal fluids. (Gross) Why is alkalinity important to you? pH scale is from 0-14, with 0 being the most acidic and 14 the most alkaline. Recommended range in your blood should be between 7.35 - 7.45...dont' freak yourself out trying to diet or restricting yourself. There are simple ways to boost your alkalinity below. Why?

#1  Diseases and illnesses live in acidic environments, not alkaline ones. The more neutral (and slightly alkaline) your internal ecosystem, the more disease-resistant you are!

#2  An alkaline internal ecosystem improves digestion and increases absorption of nutrients.

#3  Good digestion and absorption of nutrients means higher resting calorie burn (calorie burned when you're not working out) and a higher metabolism.

As you can see, alkalinity is just good all around. Wondering HOW? There are a few foods and beverages that push our pH into the acidic zone.  Over time, consuming these "no-no's" in large quantities, can lead to a significantly lower pH (more acidic) and, in turn, a higher likelihood of illness. Also, our bodies naturally want to maintain a natural pH, so when our blood streams are overloaded with acids, the body stashes away the extra acidic toxins in....YOUR FAT CELLS.  This causes them to expand and swell. So keep a watchful eye on these:

5 ALKALINITY NO-NO'S:  Lose :( 

Sugar

Coffee

Meat (in large quantities)

Refined Wheat

Artificial Sweeteners

5 ALKALINITY BOOSTERS:  (Win!)

Apple Cider Vinegar

Coconut Oil

Green Leafy Veggies

Water

Lemons, Limes and Grapefruit

As mentioned earlier, look at these above lists with balance and practicality in-mind.  For example, know that if you drink a pitcher of coffee and wash it down with donuts, you might want to balance out a later with some greens, an unsweetened lemonade and plenty of water. Once you know the power of what you eat, balancing (and not worrying) becomes second nature!!

Education and acceptance is so important in this journey called life. You have to be that old dog that WILL learn new tricks or the healthier you might not evolve.
