Complete Alkaline Acid Food List
The 80/20 Alkaline Food Rule
The ‘alkaline acid food chart’ indicates which foods have an alkalising effect on your body and which foods have an acidifying effect on the body. It is simple to use, you merely look up a food and it will indicate whether it is ‘acid-forming’ or ‘alkaline-forming’ within the body. For good health, try to eat 80% of your food from the alkalising list and 20% from the acidifying list.
The key is to not become too obsessed (stress is acidic), the average person can be safe on an 80% alkaline to 20% acid proportion. However, if you are unwell you may want to consider 100% alkaline foods until your health improves.
It is especially important to eat plenty of alkaline forming foods when you have eaten a larger portion of acid-formers, such as; meat, cheese, milk and grains. It’s not about avoiding these acid-forming foods altogether, it’s about moderation so they yield the greatest good to your body. For instance, if you are having pasta or pizza (which is acid-forming), balance it out with a green salad which is highly alkalising.
A number of highly alkalising foods that you can easily add to your diet are: Ra See Salt, Saka Water, Alkaline Superfoods and natural Sodium Bicarb (organic food grade only).
Why is an alkaline diet important?
An alkaline diet diminishes acidity of the urine by neutralizing and absorbing normal body acids. It also forms a reserve of bicarbonates, which help to maintain neutrality. In effect, you are aiding your body to overcome the bad effects of any acid-forming foods you do eat. Just think of your body like a swimming pool, we all understand that bacteria can’t survive in an alkaline environment in a swimming pool – our body is the same, a highly alkaline diet will naturally have you in much greater health.
Plan your meals to follow our simple, up-to-date acid-alkaline chart, the most complete of its kind! Even if you do eat an all-acid meal, make your next two or three fully alkaline. And, lastly, good health is much more than what you eat – so, make sure you relax and enjoy a restful sleep each day as they are both alkaline builders, along with walking, fresh air, sunshine, pleasure, laughter, conversation, enjoyment and even love.
