91 Alkaline Foods That Fight Cancer, Diabetes and Heart Disease

With 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.
