Does My Body Need Acid or Alkaline to Digest Food?

There seems to be a bit of confusion when it comes to understanding how the Alkaline Diet works. I am often getting questions from people as to what is needed for any food to digest and if it depends on what you eat.

Aug. 17, 2009 - PRLog -- There seems to be a bit of confusion when it comes to understanding how the Alkaline Diet works.

I am often getting questions from people as to what is needed for any food to digest and if it depends on what you eat.

The answer to this is no. Digesting food in your stomach is not dependant on what you eat, although some foods are easier to digest than others. The stomach’s function is to produce acid to digest the food that you eat before it gets moved to the intestines – this acid should not be confused with the acid that is referred to in the Alkaline Diet.

When there is a reference to acid or alkaline in the PH Miracle Diet, what is meant by this is the ash that is left by the food that we eat. Some foods produce an acidic ash residue, some produce an alkaline ash residue. It is these ash residues that is being referred to when we talk about acid versus alkaline.

It is these ash residues that cause our body pH to be either acidid or alkaline. When our bodies are too acidic due to some of the foods that we eat like high content sugary foods, processed foods, fried foods etc, that it can lead to us being very susceptible to diseases.

It follows then that one should strive for a better balance in the food that we eat in order for our bodies to be healthy which means that we have to eat more foods that leave an alkaline ash residue in order for our cells and immune system to be healthy. These alkaline foods can range from very alkaline i.e. lemons and limes, to neutral which are grains.

There are many alkaline food charts available on the Internet to help you understand which foods are acidic and which foods are alkaline.

I hope this explanation has helped you understand the difference between acid and alkaline when following a healthy diet.
