Alkaline & Acidic Foods: Alkalizing Through Nutrition
Healthy eating involves increasing the amount of fresh organic vegetables and fruits in your diet, eating raw whenever possible. Vegetables and fruits are the most alkaline of foods. Include more high-alkaline foods in your diet to balance your intake of any acid-forming foods such as meat, fish, dairy, nuts, and grains. A high-alkaline foods diet is important for those using High pH Therapy.

The words "alkaline or alkalizing" and "acidic or acidifying" represent the food's effect on the body and not the actual value of the food itself. Different value systems have been designed to quantify this effect. The charts below are provided as a general guide for those trying to improve their heath through diet change.

ALKALINE FOOD CHART
PRAL is a measurement of the Potential Renal Acid Load of a food based on a 100 gram (3.5 oz.) serving.

"Positive (+) numbers indicate the potential acidity being contributed by an acid-forming food. Negative (-) numbers are good numbers and indicate the potential alkalinity being contributed by a base-forming food. The goal is to balance your intake of acid-forming foods by increasing the amount of alkaline-forming foods in your diet."

NUTRITION HANDBOOK
"When foods are eaten they are oxidized in the body which results in the formation of residue or ash. In this residue, if the minerals sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium predominate over sulfur, phosphorus, chlorine and uncombusted organic acid radicals, they are designated as alkaline ash foods. The converse of this is true for foods designated as acid ash."

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ALKALINE / ACIDIC FOODS

Essense-of-Life.com encourages personal research and a balanced view of health and nutrition topics. The information links below are intended to provide a broad overview of various research findings and hypothesis on the role of nutrition in health. This information is not intended to promote any particular product.
Unless noted, the articles below may NOT include any scientific references or sources.

01.
Alkaline / Acidic Food Chart
These charts are a basic guideline for those trying to adjust their diet by eating fewer acidic foods and more alkaline foods.

02.
New Biology: How We Become Acidic (pdf file) The Cause of Degenerative Diseases: beginning on page 29 of the document is an extensive discussion of latent acidosis and it's connection to chronic degenerative diseases.

03.
New Biology: Understanding Saliva and Urine pH Test Results (pdf file) The pH Test: pages 46-49 of the document provide an extensive discussion of pH, when to test saliva and urine pH, and how to understand the results.

04.
Understanding pH pH is actually an exponential scale. Every unit change in pH equals a 10-fold increase or decrease in acidity (or basicity). Thus, dropping from pH 7 to 6 is a 10-fold increase in acidity. However, dropping further to pH 5 is another 10-fold increase, or a 100-fold increase (10 x 10 = 100) in acidity from pH 7. For this reason, even minor deviations in pH around the more extreme values constitute much greater changes in acidity (or basicity) than seemingly major changes around the neutral mark. For example, merely dropping from pH 3.1 to 3.0 equals an increase in acidity more than 238 times greater than dropping from pH 7 to 6.

05.
The pH Problem Explains some differences in blood, urine and saliva pH measurements.

06. Acid and Alkaline in the Diet When nutritionists talk about acid- or alkaline-forming foods, they are referring to the condition of the food after ingestion. There are many food substances which are acidic in their natural form that become alkaline when broken down within the body. Excellent article.

07. Acid/Alkaline: Clearing Up The Confusion The purpose of this article is to clearly and simply explain the meaning of acid and alkaline and to explain why a study of the acid-alkaline balance, or pH balance, is important in the study of health and healthful living. Excellent article.

08. Acid-Base Balance Many of the enzymes that facilitate metabolic reactions operate optimally only in solutions of specific alkalinity. When there is a deviation from this level of alkalinity, whether higher (referred to as alkalosis), or lower (referred to as acidosis), severe malfunctions can occur. These malfunctions are manifested by slower enzymatic reactions, and thus a decrease in synthesis of specialized molecules, such as vitamins, proteins, etc. There is also an impairment of the production of ATP molecules that are needed for energy and are made from glucose.

09. Introduction: Acid-Alkali Food Tables with Potential Renal Acid Load (PRAL) Values The effect of food on the body is nothing to do with the pH of the food itself. The important measurement is how the food changes the pH of your body after it has been digested. Often sour foods like lemon juice will actually raise pH after digestion, making the body more alkaline. Alkalizing the body with food does not mean that you must stop eating lots of different foods. The opposite is true. You must eat a wide variety of food, choosing acidifying foods as well as alkalizing ones, which, in total, have an overall alkalizing effect. The tables that I present here focus solely on the acid / alkali affect of food after it has been digested.

10.
The pH / Digestion / Elimination Axis Enzymes function optimally at a specific pH and become inactive if this deviates beyond narrow limits. Enzymes are vital substances. Without them, the chemical reactions necessary for life could not take place. All of the best and most nutritious food in the world and the most expensive vitamin pills and supplements won't get digested and assimilated right if your body pH is off balance.

11. Essential Details on Acid and Alkaline-Forming Effects of Food and How Your Body Maintains a Healthy pH Most carbonated soft drinks (sodas) have a pH of about 3, making them about ten thousand times more acidic than pure water (pH of about 7). When you ingest foods and liquids, the end products of digestion and assimilation of nutrients often results in an acid or alkaline-forming effect. Highly processed foods (like white flour products and white sugar) have an acid-forming effect on your system. In addition, a number of different acids are formed and released into your body which are generated by your everyday metabolic activities. Your body has three major mechanisms (buffering systems) to prevent these dietary and metabolic acids from shifting the pH of your blood (plasma) outside of the 7.35 to 7.45 pH range needed for your cells to function properly. If you spend years eating a diet that is mainly acid-forming, you will overwork some of the buffering systems to a point where you could create undesirable changes in your health. It is in your best interest to follow a diet that does not create unnecessary work for your buffering systems.

12. Introduction to pH pH is the acronym for potential hydrogen. It is a measure of the degree of saturation of the hydrogen ion in a substance or solution. H3O (hydronium ion+) is the acid element and OH- (hydroxyl ion-) is the base or alkaline element. When the H3O and OH- are out of balance, a pH meter will detect this and the reading will move above or below 7 (neutral). If one goes up the other goes down and vice versa. In the human body, a pH balancing act is continuously going on to maintain homeostasis.

13. pH Range In general, you want pH of urine to be below 6.5 and saliva to be above 6.5. High urine pH is not good. It should always be able to get down into the 5 range - this shows metabolic acids can and are being removed from the system.

14.
Diet: You Are What You Eat Everything we eat affects the health and well-being of our body. Most calls to "change your diet" to improve your health include these recommendations: eat whole, unprocessed foods (raw fruits, raw vegetables, whole grains); drink plenty of clean water (not tap or filtered); and reduce or eliminate intake of refined sugar and flour products, coffee, soft drinks, margarine, commercial cooking oils, dairy and other animal products. In processed foods, heat destroys some of the nutrient value, including destroying enzymes and reducing vitamin and antioxidant content.

15. pH of Living Systems on Wikipedia pH is a measure of the acidity or basicity of a solution. The pH of different cellular compartments, body fluids, and organs is usually tightly regulated in a process called acid-base homeostasis. The pH of blood is usually slightly basic with a value of pH 7.4. This value is often referred to as physiological pH in biology and medicine. Enzymes and other proteins have an optimum pH range and can become inactivated or denatured outside this range. The most common disorder in acid-base homeostasis is acidosis, which means an acid overload in the body, generally defined by pH falling below 7.35.

16. Dietary Potential Renal Acid Load and Renal Net Acid Excretion in Healthy, Free-Living Children and Adolescents PRAL (mEq/d) = 0.49 x protein (g/d) + 0.037 x phosphorus (mg/d) – 0.021 x potassium (mg/d) – 0.026 x magnesium (mg/d) – 0.013 x calcium (mg/d)
