The western lifestyle has prioritized convenience over quality in many aspect of everyday life. This is what’s led countless of Americans towards processed meals that are quick and easy to make. But these meals lack nutritional value, especially key alkaline minerals used by your body to neutralize acid.
This is actually an alarming trend because the body thrives when it’s slightly more alkaline and factors like poor diet, stress, illness and inactivity can quickly make it alarmingly acidic. This is why alkalizing foods is great for your diet.
Why Acidic Blood Is Bad
Acidosis, or high acidity, is one of the main causes of diseases like multiple sclerosis, cholesterol, arrhythmia, immunodeficiency disorders, joint pain, lethargy, heart disease, diabetes and cancer (1,2).
To get your body back into balance without harming yourself, add alkaline and mineral-rich foods to your daily diet and cut out inflammatory acidic foods like sugar, wheat and dairy.
