Keeping your hydrogen regulated with acidity and alkalinity can help keep a healthy balance within your body.
The pH scale ranges from one to 14, with a seven as a neutral. If your pH is below a seven, you have more acidity in your body. This can cause kidney and lung complications, osteoporosis, muscle loss, high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes.
If you have a pH higher than seven, you have too much alkaline, which can cause your body to stop metabolizing essential nutrients, dehydration, and result in your blood not carrying enough oxygen. Keeping a healthy pH balance can be extremely difficult, but it can be done through healthy eating and lifestyle habits.
What are some foods that are high in alkaline and help boost your pH?
- Green tea
- Meat: beef, pork, chicken, turkey
