The Benefits of an Alkaline Food Diet
The benefits of an alkaline diet range from weight loss to improved body functions to the prevention and cure of such chronic diseases as arthritis. These benefits can be traced to alkaline foods balancing the body’s blood pH level so that nutrients are used to repair and grow new cells and fat is burned for energy. According to the website Energize for Life, an alkaline food diet should consist of 70 to 80 percent alkaline foods and a maximum of 20 to 30 percent acid-forming foods.
