Alkaline Food List: the MOST EFFECTIVE alkalizing foods to reset alkaline balance and prevent cancer

The human diet must consist of a variety of different foods in order to have a balanced vitamin-to-mineral status.

Due to the fast-pace of modern life, and the fact that today’s fruits and vegetables are not grown the same way as they were 40 years ago, many of us tend to use dietary supplements.



If you are supplementing with vitamins and minerals, it is important to know that it is best to take vitamins in the morning because they give you an energy boost (specifically vitamin B12), and minerals throughout the day in order to ensure you have a good sleep.

However, if you decide that you don’t want to get your vitamins and minerals through supplements, here are the top five best alkalized foods :

Buckwheat

This is a good healthy alternative for wheat. It contains rutin, which will provide you with lots of energy. It is also effective for treating and preventing strokes that are caused by broken blood vessels. It is also good for people who have hemorrhoids or varicose veins.

Cabbage



Cabbages are a staple food in the average household due to it’s price and various uses, but it is also one of the healthiest foods out there.

Cabbages have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-carcinogenic properties. Instead of throwing away the water you used to boil cabbage, keep it to make sauces out of, or just drink it.

Melon

Melons are an excellent source of nutrients. These include vitamin A, B6, dietary fibre, potassium and folic acid. This combination of nutrients gives us the energy we need to sustain us throughout the day. Melon is an excellent anticoagulant that thins the blood and reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Flax seed and flax seed oil



Flax is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. They are rich in lignans, which help to prevent breast, prostate and colon cancer as well as improving kidney function. Their high content of essential omega-3 fatty acids just adds to their incredible health benefits. They can cause a reduction in cholesterol levels and can also regulate blood pressure. Flax seeds can be eaten directly, blended in smoothies or taken in oil-form.

Olive oil

Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids. It contains antioxidants such as vitamin E, which not only prevents diseases that cause heart attacks and chest pain, but also helps in lessening hot flashes in menopausal women.

Acidic Foods

The nutrition in many developed Western countries involves people eating foods that create acidity in the body. Some of the most acidic foods include refined junk food products such as sugar-loaded cereals, caffeine, alcohol, and artificial sweeteners.
