Our body needs to maintain a healthy pH balance in order to function normally, but modern diets are full of excessively acidic foods and drinks which distort this balance and lead to numerous health issues.
As soon as our body turns overly acidic, it becomes prone to inflammation, toxic accumulation, and the immune system weakens.
Therefore, we should consume both, alkaline and acidic foods, in order to regulate the pH balance in the system, and prevent diseases and health issues.
This is a list of the most beneficial alkaline and acidic foods you should consume:
Cucumbers have powerful diuretic properties, so they hydrate the body and cleanse it from the accumulated waste and toxins. Cucumber juice eliminates excess uric acid and thus prevents uric acid crystallization.
This citrus fruit is high in beneficial properties and is low in sugar. It boosts metabolism, alkalizes the body, and prevents fat accumulation in the body.
Cabbage is high in magnesium and folate, which strengthen the immune system, alkalize the body on a cellular level, and help digestion. Moreover, it is high in fibers which prevent cancer and help weight loss.
They are loaded with vitamins E, C, and A, which treat various skin conditions. They also promote weight loss, treat bladder issues, lower the cancer risk, especially bladder cancer, and prevent UTIs.
