In order to create wellness, the human body must maintain a slightly alkaline pH balance, which ensures that there is adequate oxygen in the blood for cells to function normally.

By consuming too many acidic foods, such as meats, dairy, vegetable oils, and even certain grains and legumes – without properly balancing them with alkaline foods – you could be increasing your potential for disease.

Some of the symptoms of an overly acidic body include inflammation, digestive issues, Candida, irritability, low energy, and immune deficiency.

Eating plenty of alkaline foods, and staying well hydrated, will not only prevent these health complications down the road, it will actually help you feel more energized and improve your mood.
