Foods That Lower Ph Levels

Sirah Dubois is currently a PhD student in food science after having completed her master's degree in nutrition at the University of Alberta. She has worked in private practice as a dietitian in Edmonton, Canada and her nutrition-related articles have appeared in The Edmonton Journal newspaper.

Your blood, for example, is strictly maintained as an alkaline fluid because oxygen, nutrient and waste exchange occurs most efficiently in a basic environment. Alkalinity also deters pathogenic microorganisms. Many foods and beverages in the standard American diet are acidic, meaning they lower your bodys pH levels and may contribute to poor health. Consult with a nutritionist if you are concerned about balancing your pH levels. The pH scale is a standardized method of measuring acidity based on the number of hydrogen ions formed when a substance is mixed with water, according to ScienceBuddies.org. An acidic solution contains lots of hydrogen ions and is assigned a number l Continue reading >>

    Hello,
    New to Keto. I want to do keto and increase weight. I figure if I keep my calorie count high enough I can do it but have found that harder than I thought when working 14-18 hour days. I was 145 pounds when I started and after two weeks found myself at 138! Oops! I used an app, carb manager, and it said in order to gain 1/2 pound a week to eat about 2,500 calories a day. I had some long days at work where I missed my 2,500 calorie goal and it looks like I paid for it swiftly.
    For someone who is 5’7" and (now) 138 pounds, what is a good strategy for me to climb my way up to something around 155 or 160 pounds? Should I not worry about doing strict keto and take in a few carbs or is there another method? Anybody know of any calorie shakes that are keto friendly? That may help.
    Oh, and I have a history of struggling to gain weight and maintain it. I went from 115 pounds to 151 pounds once before after many months with a personal trainer and consuming about 5,000 - 6,000 calories a day. Unfortunately, it came with a small layer of fat since I wasn’t worried about “eating clean.”

    What do you think is the best approach for me to gain a few pounds?

How To Decrease Body Acidity

Written by Andrea Cespedes; Updated August 16, 2017 Many natural health proponents and celebrities claim that your blood needs to be of an alkaline pH level to keep you healthy and energized. Processed foods and commonly consumed items, such as red meat, wheat and sugar, cause your blood levels to become too acidic, which induces inflammation and compromises your health. While the idea of balancing your blood pH has largely been debunked, an alkaline diet plan does offer health benefits. Choosing the right foods might negligibly affect your blood's acidity, but this isn't the real benefit of cleaning up your diet plan. Your blood pH is normally between 7.35 and 7.45. Your body systems are responsible for maintaining this slightly alkaline level, but it can be modestly affected by what you eat. Too many refined grains and sugar as well as processed foods can raise inflammation and cause your systems to go into overdrive to maintain your slightly alkaline status. What you eat isn't going to make you more acidic, but it may make your body have to work harder to maintain a healthy pH level. To make your body less acidic, alkaline diet promoters claim you should eat mostly fresh vegeta Continue reading >>

    i thought about 2 scenarios:

    if i told people about keto and were an example how a weak willed person can drop weight and keep it off, most of them still wouldn't do it: "fat is bad for you", "oh but cholesterol", "it won't work for me", "but whole grains are good for you!", "milk contains calcium", "fruit are full of vitamins", etc.

    on the other hand, if i sold some seriously overpriced capsules that have nothing to do with weight loss (think $100 psyllium husk/lite salt) and included "what you need to do for them to work" manual (which would be keto), i would make a fortune and people wouldn't be nearly as opposed.
    it's a mentality thing.

Neutralize Your Body Ph With The Right Foods

Home > Articles > Neutralize Your Body pH With the Right Foods Neutralize Your Body pH With the Right Foods The regulation of acid-alkaline balance is one of the most important factors in homeostasis, or dynamic equilibrium in the body. Recent studies show that when the bodys pH is too acidic , its difficult for enzymes to function properly, which can lead to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and other inflammatory diseases. The acronym pH stands for potential for hydrogen, and measures the hydrogen ions in bodily fluids such as blood, saliva, or urine. Dissolved acid produces hydrogen ions, so the more hydrogen ions in a solution (higher concentration), the more acidic the solution is, and the lower the number on the pH scale. The pH scale runs from 0 (pure acid) to 14 (most alkaline), with 7 being neutral. The human body functions optimally at a pH of around 7.4, which is just on the alkaline side of neutral. Most people exhibiting symptoms of disease from heart disease and cancer, to osteoporosis, diabetes, and beyond, have a body pH that is chronically acidic. As the body tries to neutralize the pH to keep it close to 7.4, it will take necessary minerals from the Continue reading >>

    This will be a huge field in coming years, I was a bit "meh" when I first heard about them - kinda like the idea of the whole raspberry ketone scam - however having seen more information there actually seems like there's a fair bit of promise in them.
    I'm still a bit wary of the idea, keto-adaptation takes a fair while to properly take, I'm not 100% convinced flooding the body with ketones is ideal considering even a regular low-carber still spills a bunch of ketones in urine and breath. I'll need to see some data on actual utilisation vs waste.

    KETOFORCE - KETOSIS SUPPLEMENT FOR THOSE NOT IN KETOSIS
    US$79 bucks for something you can get by eating steak and bacon and eggs, or even MCT/coconut oil if you must, hmm.

    Keto Force contains the endogenous ketone body beta-hydroxybutrate (BHB) in sodium and potassium salt form. Ingestion of Keto Force will raise the levels of blood ketones (BHB and AcAc) for 2.5-3.0 hours after ingestion. When taken an hour before exercise this product has been shown to decrease the amount of oxygen consumed at a given power output.

    It is suggested that this product be consumed during the initial stages of a ketogenic diet (three times a day for first 2-3 days) to accelerate ketosis and ease metabolic transition. The product may also be consumed prior to high intensity aerobic exercise to enhance performance.
    *This product has an alkaline pH 10-11 so it is best mixed with an acidic beverage (i.e. diet lemonade, grapefruit juice, etc) prior to ingestion.
    Contains 480mL.

    Acidosis is a biochemical condition, caused by acid-alkaline imbalance in the body's pH levels, where the acidity of the body fluid is very high. The kidneys and lungs maintain the balance of chemicals (acids and bases) in the body. All foods are digested in the body leaving ash as the result of the digestion. This food ash can be neutral, acid or alkaline, depending largely on the mineral composition of the foods. Some foods leave an acid residu ...
