Acidic and Alkaline Foods Quick Reference Guide

Acidic and Alkaline Foods Quick Reference Guide

Acidic and Alkaline Foods Quick Reference Guide

The following chart is a good and useful guide to the pH of many common foods. Use it to ensure that you are not exposing your body to the harmful acidic compounds commonly associated with poor health, exhaustion and susceptibility to disease. Studies indicate that reducing your consumption of acidic foods not only improves bone density but also helps to alleviate both chronic pain and acid reflux. It is perhaps telling that the vast majority of acidic foods fall into the 'ultra-processed' category which, according to a 2018 study, increase one's risk of cancer.

General Notes:

Salads, fresh vegetables and healthy nuts and oils are great everyday food. If possible eat lots of raw foods and drink at least 2-3 litres of purified alkaline antioxidant water daily.

General Notes:

Avoid fatty meats, dairy, cheese, sweets, chocolates, alcohol and tobacco as they are all acidifying on the body. Processed and packaged foods often contain many hidden offenders. Over-cooked food removes all of the nutrition from the food.

If you're keen to maintain a properly balanced pH, Green Food Supplements such as Green Vibrance and pHresh Greens certainly help. 

The main thing, of course, is to focus on one's diet: quality supplements will never be able to compensate for an over-reliance on acid-forming foods. Is the above list a little too much to take in? Our article charting the Top 10 Alkaline Foods to Eat Frequently for Great Health is a terrific resource. You will not fail to note the benefits after switching to a largely alkaline diet!
