How Are Alkaline Recipes Beneficial?
That’s a great question and we’re glad you asked! Your blood is slightly alkaline with a pH that needs to be maintained at 7.365. Our typical diet consists of a lot of acidifying foods like refined sugar, coffee, baked goods containing flour, or, worst of all, cola. When we ingest too much food that is acidic, our bodies can start to exhibit signs of imbalance. Some of these symptoms include headaches, unexplained aches and pain, high blood pressure, hormonal imbalances, inflammation, obesity, or osteoporosis. Making the effort to include alkaline foods into our diets can reduce or prevent these symptoms and help your body achieve its optimal state of health.
