The balance in life is essential, and this is also true about the diet you consume, and the pH levels in your body.
Namely, in order to maintain health and prevent numerous ailments, the body needs to have balanced ph levels. After the consumption of acid-forming foods, the body releases alkaline-high minerals, like magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus, in the attempt to balance the pH level of the blood.
Therefore, if our diet is poor in these important, alkaline-forming foods, the body will need t use the minerals in our organs, teeth, and bones, and thus lead to exhaustion, and a weakened immune system, making us more susceptible to diseases.
Acid-forming foods are meats, fish, most grains, fast foods, beans, dairy products, and processed foods. Hence, a balanced diet when it comes to Ph consists of 20-40% acid-forming foods and 60-80% alkaline-forming foods.
Here below we reveal some of the best alkaline-forming foods, and you should consider incorporating them into your daily diet in order to strengthen your system and avoid numerous health issues.
The consumption of unripe bananas may lead to acidity in the stomach, constipation, and poor nutrient absorption. On the other hand, ripe bananas with brown spots will provide numerous minerals, vitamins, and will alkalize the body.
Being one of the most potent alkaline-forming foods, with a pH of 8.5, asparagus is also loaded with minerals, vitamins, water, fiber, and antioxidants.
Despite their delicious taste, their pH level is 8.0, so they effectively neutralize acidic foods. They can be added to your salad, guacamole, sandwiches, and much more!
It is a highly alkalizing food, high in important nutrients and fiber, and it will maintain the alkalinity of your body, and will keep you full longer.
Spice your food up and neutralize acidic foods, like eggs, cheese, meat, and fish. In this way, you will also consume numerous nutrients and fiber.
Almonds and almond milk are also one of the best alkaline foods, and they will enhance the function of the brain, help digestion, reduce cholesterol levels and promote a healthy balance in the body.
Even though lemons have an acidic taste, they are powerful alkalizing substances. You can squeeze some lemon juice or add a few slices in your bottle of water and drink it all day long.
With a pH of 9.0, watermelon is also deservedly on this list. It is loaded with minerals, vitamins, and water, which support the balance of electrolytes. Moreover, watermelons are high in fiber, so they are great for detoxification of the body.
Papayas promote a healthy digestion, and they are rich in minerals, water, vitamins, and fiber, so they enhance the overall health. They are also a powerful alkaline-forming food.
Despite its numerous health benefits, it is a potent alkaline-forming ingredient, with a pH of 8.5. Moreover, it lowers blood pressure, detoxifies the body, improves brain function, and stimulates circulation.

I love pomegranate, it’s a wonderful fruit to incorporate into your diet because it can help reduce brain inflammation and protect against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
So did I, until I discovered their potential to help keep you healthy and happy.
During the late nineties scientists discovered the health benefits from the discarded part of this extremely beneficial fruit.
Chief amongst these discoveries were the substantial benefits you can derive from using pomegranate peels, especially in your digestive system.
Pomegranate peels are loaded with antioxidants. As their name might imply, antioxidants are extremely effective at eliminating oxidation from LDL cholesterol.
If your LDL cholesterol accumulates too much oxidization, it will eventually wreak havoc in your cardiovascular system, leaving you vulnerable to most heart diseases.
When it comes to antioxidants, I’ve felt that you can never get enough, especially if they come from a completely natural source.
Vitamin C is an integral part of a healthy holistic diet. Its health benefits cover a lot of areas in your health, ranging from improving your immune system, your cardiovascular system, preventing prenatal health complications, avoiding wrinkles, and reducing your chances of developing ocular diseases.
Pomegranate peels carry enough vitamin c to render vitamin pills or tablets obsolete. This is perfect because we’re trying to base our diet’s needs on completely natural sources.
Remember the plentiful antioxidants that could help your heart? Well, here’s where they shine again. Pomegranate peels pack enough antioxidants to make them the perfect natural detox you can get your hands on.
If you ever feel the need to detox, be it to keep it in shape or if you feel like you want to spoil yourself, pomegranate peels make the perfect detox tea.
Below this you’ll find my recipe for making pomegranate peel tea. This tea’s key strength is its ability to destroy the pathogenic cells that can wreak havoc within your gastrointestinal tract.
This makes it the perfect natural treatment for with multiple digestive diseases and their respective symptoms. They can range from diarrhea, salmonella, bile ulcers, and multiple forms of colitis.
So without further ado, here’s pomegranate peel tea recipe that’s the perfect addition to your healthy diet.
All you’ll really need is one part dried pomegranate peels to twenty parts water. For the purposes of keeping it simple think 10 to 12 grams of dried pomegranate peels paired with 200 milliliters of water.
I’d recommend keeping it covered while you’re sipping it.

A new study published in the journal Atherosclerosis confirms that pomegranate extract may prevent and/or reverse the primary pathology associated with cardiac mortality: the progressive thickening of the coronary arteries caused by the accumulation of fatty materials known as atherosclerosis.
Mice with a genetic susceptibility towards spontaneous coronary artery blockages were given pomegranate extract via their drinking water for two weeks, beginning at three weeks of age. Despite the fact that pomegranate treatment actually increased cholesterol levels associated with very low density lipoprotein-sized particles, the treatment both reduced the size of the atherosclerotic plaques in the aortic sinus (the dilated opening above the aortic valve) and reduced the proportion of coronary arteries with occlusive atherosclerotic plaques.
Remarkably, the researchers also found that pomegranate extract treatment resulted in the following beneficial effects:
How can something as benign and commonplace as a fruit extract reverse so many aspects of coronary artery disease, simultaneously, as evidenced by the study above? The answer may lie in the fact that our ancestors co-evolved with certain foods (fruits in particular) for so long that a lack of adequate quantities of these foods may directly result in deteriorating organ function. Indeed, two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling argued that vitamin C deficiency is a fundamental cause of cardiovascular disease, owing to the fact that our hominid primate ancestors once had year-round access to fruits, and as a result lost the ability to synthesize it. [see Linus Pauling vitamin C lecture on GreenMedTV]
This study adds to the already extant body of clinical research indicating that pomegranate can help unclog your arteries. For instance, back in 2004, the journal Clinical Nutrition published the results of a three year clinical trial in an Israeli population, finding that the daily consumption of pomegranate juice reversed carotid artery stenosis by up to 29% within 1 year. Remarkably, the blockages in the control group increased 9%, indicating that pomegranate’s artery unblocking effects were even greater than at first apparent.
Pomegranate’s value in cardiovascular disease is quite broad, as evidenced by the following experimentally confirmed properties:
