Restoring pH Balance in Your Body

Balancing the pH levels in your body, providing a more alkaline environment, is thought to lower the risk of sickness, cancer and chronic diseases while slowing down the aging process. It may even help you to control your weight.

The acid/alkaline balance can be easily maintained through food and drink.

However, constant exposure to chemicals in medications, as well as the environment, stress, pesticides and acidic foods is thought to make acid/alkaline balance more difficult.

Use the 80 (alkaline) / 20 (acidic) rule to find the right balance for good health.

Monitoring what goes into your body will help you to find the right balance, but eating the right foods will get you even further.  Here are some foods you that will help find better pH balance:

Alternatively, foods that challenge pH balance, and that should be eaten in small quantities, include:

There are different alkaline/acid foods lists available, but we believe that when it comes to eating healthy, simplicity is key.  If you eat a whole-food diet with few ingredients (and whose names you recognize), you will keep your body in pH harmony.
