92 Alkaline Foods That Fight Cancer, Inflammation, Diabetes and Heart Disease – GTM

Appropriate pH levels in the body are key to maintaining good health. In order to function at its optimum level, our body needs a pH of about 7.4, which is a slightly alkaline range.

Unfortunately, the increased industrialization has led to an elevated CO2 deposition, which in turn lowered the ocean`s pH from 8.2 to 8.1, leading to a negative effect on the marine life. In addition to this, the pH of the soil also affects the mineral profile of the food we consume.

In brief, an alkaline diet is a diet which is based on the nutrients obtained from vegetables and natural foods. This type of diet is beneficial for everyone and this is the reason why this article presents a list of alkaline foods which can be incorporated in your diet.
