ALKALINE FOODS FOR VIBRANT HEALTH

ALKALINE FOODS CHART

We Humans are Alkaline organisms in the food chain. Our pH level can easily turn acidic if we do not pay attention to what we eat. When a person ingests foods to burn for fuel, the digestive & metabolic process transforms it into a kind ash which is either acidic or alkaline. The law of modern biochemistry further explains that it is not the organic matter of foods ( the food itself is acidic or alkaline ) , but their inorganic matter like calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, sulfur, phosphorous, that is how they break down in our bodies, that determines either the acidity or alkalinity of this ashy residue.

Our blood being non- alkaline liquid , our body will poorly perform & will have difficulty in resistance power leading to auto-immune medical conditions.
