Food can be classified into two groups namely the acidic food group and the alkaline food group. These food are categorized as such because they affect the urine pH level when they are consumed. Our body’s acid-alkaline balance, also known as pH, can affect our overall well-being.
Whatever food we consume, once it enters into our body, it will undergo processing and becomes acidic. Too much acid consumption can deplete the minerals in our body, thus growing the risk of heart disease, kidney problems, and osteoporosis. That is why we need alkaline food as well, to help balance out the acidity in our body.
