Acid - Alkaline Food List

Your body pH affects everything

 

Your body pH affects everything...

Balancing the pH is a major step toward well-being and greater health.

 

The pH scale is from   0 - 14

0 1 2  3  4  5  6  7 healthy  8 9 10 11 12 13 14

 

Human blood pH should be slightly alkaline ( 7.35 - 7.45 ).  Below or above this range generally leads to symptoms.   A pH of 7.0 is neutral.  A pH below 7.0 is acidic.  A pH above 7.0 is alkaline. A pH of 6.75 to 7.2 is generally a healthy range for
urine and saliva, but have your doctor test this.

An acidic pH can occur from an acid forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients.  If the diet does not contain enough minerals to compensate, it will pull them from our tissues, and a build up of acids in the cells will occur.

An acidic pH decreases the body's ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decreases the energy production in the cells, it's ability to detoxify heavy metals, repair damaged cells, makes tumor cells thrive, and makes the body more susceptible to fatigue and illness. 

The reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to the typical American diet, which is far too high in acid producing animal foods like meat, eggs, poultry and dairy, and far too low in alkaline producing foods which contain chlorophyll such as fresh vegetables.  Additionally, we eat acid producing processed foods as in white flour and sugar and drink acid producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks.  Drugs are usually acid forming as are artifical chemical sweetners like NutraSweet, Spoonful, Sweet 'N Low and Equal.  One of the best ways we can correct an overly acid body is to detoxify with supplemental support and adjusting what is in our daily diet.

The general recommendation is to eat 80% alkaline forming foods and 20% acid forming foods to restore health and then 60% alkaline foods with 40% acid foods
for maintainance. 

Generally, alkaline forming foods include: fruits low in sugar, green vegetables, peas, beans, lentils, spices, herbs and seasonings, seeds and nuts.

Generally, acid forming foods include: processed foods, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, grains,
and some legumes.

Shifting Your pH Toward Alkaline...

These charts are a general guide to alkalizing and acidifying foods for those desiring to shift their body pH and is not meant to substitute for your doctors advice.  The pH scale is from 0 to 14, with numbers below 7 acidic ( low on oxygen ) and numbers above 7 alkaline.  Balance in what we eat and drink is the key.  

This chart is intended only as a general guide to alkalizing and acidifying foods.

The citric acid that citrus fruit contains is actually alkalinizing to the body.

Note that a food's acid or alkaline forming tendency in the body has nothing to do with the actual pH of the food itself. For example, lemons are very acidic, however the end products they produce after digestion and assimilation are very alkaline so, lemons are alkaline forming in the body. Likewise, meat will test alkaline before digestion, but it leaves very acidic residue in the body so, like nearly all animal products, meat is very acid forming.

4. Stimulating, non-irritating body healer.  Good for endocrine system.
  
5. Purifies kidneys.
  
6. Powerful acid reducer detoxing to produce acid urine temporarily, causing alkalinity for the long term.
  
7. Natural sugars give alkalinity.  Added sugar causes juice to become acid forming.
  
8. Depends on vege's content and sweetness.
  
9. Enzyme rich, superior digestibility.
10. High calcium content.  Cornflour substitute.
11. Elevates acid food 5.0 in alkaline direction.
12. Vegetable content raises alkalinity.
13. Substitute for coca; mineral rich.
14. Winter squash rates 7.5.  Butternut and sweeter squash rates 8.0.
15. Genuine fermented for 11Ž2 years otherwise 6.0.
16. Raw unpasteurized is a digestive aid to increase HCL in the stomach. 1 tablespoon, + honey & water before meals.
17. Soak 12 hours, peel skin to eat.
18. Sundried, tree ripened, otherwise 6.0.
19. Using sea salt and apple cider vinegar.
20. Contains sea minerals.  Dried at low temperatures.
21. Range from 7.0 to 8.0.
22. Sprouted grains are more alkaline.  Grains chewed well become more alkaline.
23. High sodium to aid digestion.
24. High levels of utilizable calcium.  Grind before eating.
25. Alkalinity and digestibility higher.
26. Heating causes fats to harden and become indigestible.
27. High mucus production.
28. Mucus forming and hard to digest.
29. When sprouted dry beans rate 7.0.
30. Contain acid-forming benzoic and quinic acids.
31. Full of iron.
32. Unrefined wheat is more alkaline.
33. High quality red wine, no more than 4 oz. daily to build blood.
34. Good quality, well brewed - up to 5.5.  Fast brewed beers drop to 5.0.
35. Most are white sugars with golden syrup added.
36. Organic, fresh ground-up to 5.5.
37. Cheaper brands drop to 5.0, as does over-indulgence.
38. Leaches minerals.
39. Bleached - has no goodness.
