Processed food makes the blood more acidic. The lower the pH, the more acidic the blood is and the less oxygen it contains, and the faster a person ages and their cells degenerate. Human blood pH must be in the range of 7.3 – 7.45 – anything outside of that range and we’re dead. The difference between pH 7.3 and pH 7.45 is about 70% less oxygen in the blood and, as we’ve learnt, less oxygen is a very bad thing.
Acidic foods, as you might be able to guess by now, include meat, sugar, alcohol, dairy, white bread and other processed foods. Even emotional stress can raise the acidity in your body. If the body is too acidic it will try to naturally balance itself out, and if their aren’t enough minerals available in your food for it to do so, it will take the essential minerals from its own cells. This leaves the cells weak and vulnerable.
So, it’s important to try and keep our pH level as close to 7.45 as possible and we can do this by ensuring we eat plenty of alkaline foods. These are live, raw foods, especially green vegetables. Even a lemon which is very acidic outside your body becomes alkaline when fully metabolised in your body. You should also drink alkalised water to keep your pH levels balanced.
