A balance in food is always of great aid to your PH, natural greens and veggies are alkaline. When trying to balance your PH your water intake also has an effect. The normal intake of natural water is between 8 glasses a day more could affect your PH and health.

Our bodies help to control our acid-base balance primarily through our respiratory and urinary systems. However, it’s also helpful to monitor and control the acidic and alkaline composition of our bodies through the foods we eat.

Foods either produce an acid or alkaline product after they’re digested and broken down. The actual pH of the food doesn’t impact whether a food is acidic or alkaline-forming in the body. For example, lemon is very acidic but is alkaline-forming in the body after consuming. In general, meat, eggs, dairy, and refined carbohydrates are acid-forming, and most fruits and vegetables are alkaline-forming. Cooked foods are generally more acidic than raw foods.
