92 Alkaline Foods That Fight Cancer, Inflammation, Diabetes and Heart Disease

92 Alkaline Foods That Fight Cancer Inflammation Diabetes and Heart DiseaseWith a new diet popping up what seems like every day, it can be hard to keep track or even figure out which to try.

The alkaline diet may be a little difficult to get into, but the end rewards more than make up for it. If you’re looking for a diet that helps with more than just weight loss, look no further!

What Is the Alkaline Diet?

The alkaline diet (also known as acid alkaline or alkaline ash diet) is at its core based around the idea of replacing acid-forming foods with alkaline foods to improve your health.

As you metabolize foods and extract their energy (calories), they leave an ash as if you were burning them.

Acidic ash makes your body acidic and alkaline ash makes it alkaline, simple enough.

Acid ash is believed to make you more susceptible to diseases and illnesses, whereas alkaline ash protects your body. Neutral acid has no effect.

Acidic ash foods include meat, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs, grains, caffeine and alcohol, and consist of protein, phosphate, and sulfur.

Alkaline foods are typically fruits, nuts, vegetables, soybeans, tofu and seeds, consisting of calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Neutral acids include natural fats, starches, and sugar.

To achieve alkalinity in the body, it is okay to consume a few foods from the acidic food list above, however, these shouldn’t be making up the main part of your diet!

Consider minimizing these foods significantly while dramatically upping your intake of alkaline foods and then see just how your body responds!

Alkaline Foods

The great thing about the alkaline diet is that it can work for vegetarians, vegans (with minimal substitutions) and even gluten intolerant people as well, so the transition can be smooth. Check out this helpful infographic and added list to get you started:

Main Benefits

Heart Disease

An alkaline diet helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol which are the biggest contributing factors to heart problems.

Inflammation

This is the body’s way of dealing with irritation or pain by attempting to remove it. It can often come as a result of infection or injury, so by alkalizing your body you are protecting it.

Diabetes

Alkalization influences and helps weight loss which is good at preventing diabetes and osteoarthritis.

Cancer

This diet can make certain chemotherapy drugs more effective and less toxic. It has yet to be proven if changing acidity can actually prevent cancer, but consuming more fruits and vegetables is known to help.
