Keeping your food habits balanced in your daily life can be very challenging!
Curious to learn a few tricks to improve your well-being?
So, let’s dive into the “pH balancing food” world.
WHAT DOES THIS “pH BALANCING FOOD” CONCEPT REALLY MEAN?
This is a really wide topic and there’re lots of (sometimes controversial) information online.
As you can learn more in this article, where you can have a complete list of the most common alkaline and acid foods, the main concepts related to what really pH is and how the features of every food can impact your wellness.
PH is used in so many different fields and it’s a scale that measures acidity and alkalinity.
From 1 (most acid) to 6 are the acid values, 7 means neutrality, and from 8 to 14 you measure the alkalinity.
This topic is very strictly connected to the “alkaline diet” and the final goal is COMPENSATING.
Compensating all the artificial preservatives, salt, sugar and fatty foods you see on shelves.
The “pH balancing foods” is your help for long-term prevention
Honestly, I don’t consider this topic as the “last fancy diet” but a tool to start doing a good prevention.
The long-term prevention it what really makes the difference in the long run. In fact, the main goal is to keep your pH around 7 – 7.4 not more.
So, a neutral- or slightly alkaline pH.
You won’t have your pH higher than that because of both extreme values of the scale cause very serious damage and diseases to your body.
In the last years, I had the chance to attend very interesting seminars about our wellness and how can you have the right intake of antioxidants and minerals every day.
What matters most to me, it’s sharing with you how much are your DAILY choices those who impact the most.
Not the second piece of cake you eat at the B-day party of your best friend!
3 EASY STEPS TO BE PH BALANCED IN YOUR ROUTINE:
First of all, as I’ve underlined in this article, the most important source of hydration is absolutely water.
Not only your organs are less stressed during all the processes they need to do, but also spring water is really great to keep the pH level at 7.
Which is great because it means neutrality.
Water is also great because it’s a solvent.
As a result, it helps to water down the acid substances you eat following the “Western diet”.
Secondly, it may sound obvious but really do an effort to include more ph balancing foods in your food habits.
Great options are alkaline fruits and vegetable in your daily diet.
I don’t think there’s “one fits all solution” while speaking of what to eat/avoid.
Your body is unique and may respond in different ways.
When you choose new healthier options, you may crave some greedy snacks: it’s fine!
Your body needs to readjust a little bit with the lower amount of refined sugar.
Stick to the 80/20 rule.
However, eating ph balancing foods like broccoli, carrots, carob, apricots, asparagus, arugula, dewberry, chestnut, garlic or fresh ginger really help your wellbeing.
See the full list of the most common alkaline foods here.
Try to avoid acid foods like fried foods, fruit juices with sugar, ice cream, green peas, ketchup, mayonnaise, miso, mustard, cheese (from all kinds of milk), oat bran or lard.
Sadly, In the last decades, food has lost SO MANY nutrients due to many problems like pollution.
HOW CAN YOU HAVE ALL THE ANTIOXIDANTS AND MINERALS EVERY DAY IF THE FOOD YOU EAT HAS LOST THEM?
I’ve learned that a supplementation ad hoc is a great remedy associated with correct lifestyle!
Unfortunately, your body doesn’t text you on WhatsApp to tell you what it needs.
You have to provide for it!
But there’s a SOLUTION!
If you are committed and want to know how it’s possible to have 23 functional fruits and veggie combined together by a great scientific advisory board to assure you the proper intake of the antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins that your body does not produce but needs every single day:

WHAT CAN YOU AVOID EATING MORE PH BALANCING FOODS?
I’ve gathered 3 problems you can avoid by eating more pH balancing foods.
1. Vitamin absorption is boosted and minerals deficiency are avoided
Having a minerals deficiency like magnesium, you can experience muscle pain, anxiety or headaches.
Having the right amount of magnesium, it’s also important for the activation of vitamin D, essential for the endocrine and immune system.
2. Bones and muscles are protected
By eating more pH balancing foods, you give more minerals to your body that uses them every level.
When you eat acid foods on a habit, your body “steals” the minerals it needs from your bones. So instead of protecting them, you’re “sabotaging” yourself.
When you eat more alkaline food you’re doing prevention and avoiding to lose more muscle mass during the year.
You can kill two birds with one stone!
3. The risks of hypertension and strokes are lower
Among the anti-aging effects of eating more ph balancing foods (alkaline > acid), you can reduce inflammations and increase the efficiency of your cardiovascular system.
Therefore, you can prevent better cholesterol, memory loss and hypertension too.
How great is that?
I hope you TAKE ACTION immediately and start shifting a bit your habits.
Start with something easy! No need for tons of chef-recipes.
Try more mixed salads, smoothie drinks (get my Smoothie recipe cards) or pasta with vegetables (try it! it’s so delicious and easy!!)
