A is for Alkaline
Reduce Acid's Effects
Stress is a fact of life. It literally pressurizes you, increasing the body’s acidity. Diet can either help or hurt the situation. Coffee and sugar, the staples of the go-go-go lifestyle, increase that pressure by raising acidity - which can make you irritable, provoke acid reflux or heartburn, and in the long term, negatively impact your kidney, liver and gall bladder function. It is also known that most arthritic conditions in the joints are a result of an acidic ph.
Luckily, your diet can effectively reduce the impact of these acids, too, by balancing acids with alkaline foods. So just remember the A’s. Almonds, apples, apricots, avocados, artichokes, and asparagus – all help the body regulate its pH levels, which protects you from deteriorating effects of acid intake. There are plenty of other alkaline foods, too. So, go out and get some! By encouraging calm in your digestive system you’ll soon see the world as less caustic and a more amicable place to work and play. And you’ll be able to more fully enjoy the fruits of your labor!
