Top 5 Alkalizing Foods To Lose Weight & Stay Healthy

Our body has different PH levels in different organs. Our blood has an alkaline PH of 7.36 to 7.4. If this PH balance is disrupted, we face inflammation, and we start having issues in different parts of the body, including with our metabolism and nutrient absorption. This causes the body to cling to excess weight. In order to keep this crucial balance, we need to eat at least 60% alkalizing foods. If we are recovering from disease or injury, eating as much as 80% alkaline foods is considered ideal. The following 5 foods will help you maintain a balanced, alkaline PH and achieve rapid healthy weight loss at the same time:
