Teaching the Fundamentals of Maintaining an Alkaline Diet.

Alkaline Diet Supplements
Eating right is great for maintaining a proper alkaline balance in your diet. In order to increase the effectiveness of the Acid-Alkaline Diet you are going to need some help. There is a wide range of things your body needs to expel the acids that have built up over the years. They are as follows:
  • Mineral Supplements
  • Green Foods
  • Enzyme Supplements
  • Antioxidants
  • Prebiotics and Probiotics
  • Mineral Supplements

The alkaline diet needs the following supplements to be most effective:

  • Calcium (Ca) - it makes up the skeletal system - you need that.
  • Potassium (k) - helps with cellular exchanges - low levels mean low energy.
  • Magnesium (Mg) - calms the nerves and boosts the immune system.
  • Iron (Fe) - carries oxygen in the blood.
  • Manganese (Mn) - catalyst in biochemical reactions.

Look for supplements that contain all 5 of these minerals. These supplements may also be paired with other minerals such as sodium (Na) and silica. Each of these has their benefits but if you already have high blood pressure you will want to avoid the supplements containing sodium.

Green Foods
Green Foods are usually found in the form of a powder that can be added to different beverages or a capsule. They are not usually what we eat but are highly nutritious greens made of the young sprouts of cereal grains and forage plants. The four major kinds are:

Wheat Sprouts - contains more alkaline minerals than any other sprout or green vegetable and is also higher in iron than spinach. Also contains more chlorophyl than any other plant source which has tremendous benefits.
Alfalfa - high levels of protein and minerals (calcium, iron, zinc, copper, and selenium)
Barley Grass - recognized by researchers as the most nutritious plant in existence.
Kamut - very nutritious - higher content of certain minerals
Look for commercially prepared green products to contain these varieties. Look for the powdered form of the juice which is more potent. When reading the ingredients look for the word juice for as many ingredients as possible. Continue Reading >>
