Alkaline For Life Diet Plan— Better Bones
August 13, 2019 | by Dr. Susan E. Brown
When it comes to improving bone health, very little you do matters more than improving your acid-alkaline balance with an alkaline eating plan. Even if you exercise and limit toxins, if your acid-alkaline balance is off-kilter, you’ll still have unnecessary bone loss in the long run. An alkaline diet is an essential part of natural bone health.
What is the Alkaline for Life® Diet?
The Alkaline for Life® Diet refers to an eating plan that supports bone and whole-body health by creating an ideal pH balance within the body. The alkalizing precursors it contains allow the bones to fulfill their metabolic functions without depleting themselves. In reality, the Alkaline for Life® Diet is the same eating pattern that supports prevention of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, and degenerative diseases. It is a diet rich in alkalizing minerals and health-supporting plant compounds.
Alkaline for Life® eating focuses on the consumption of the following food groups, along with adequate protein and essential fats. The diet is centered on:
Nuts and seeds
Spices and pulses (turmeric, ginger, mustard seed, cloves, etc.)
