Every food we eat leaves a metabolic waste in our body. The metabolic wastes can either be acidic in nature which increases the acidic level in your blood. Or it can be neutral (technically “alkaline”). Based on scientific experiments acidity makes you susceptible to illness and diseases. By consuming foods rich in alkalinity, you strengthen and protect your body.

Acidity or alkalinity is determined by pH. A pH of 7 in our blood means neutrality. If it goes below 7 it produces an acidic effect and above 7 produces an alkalinity effect.

Acidic foods

Meat, poultry, fish, eggs, alcohol, etc.

Alkaline foods

Fruits, vegetables, nuts, pulses etc.

When the blood pH level turns more acidic, it can be fatal. So consume alkaline foods to balance out the acidity in your blood.
