In my health consulting practice I’m finding that many people would benefit greatly from a high alkaline diet. Alkalizing foods are those that have a negative Potential Renal Acid Load (PRAL) value. This is a calculation that is based upon the quantities of nutrients and minerals that foods contain. Negative values indicate alkaline foods while a positive value means a food has an acidifying effect. The goal of this diet is not to only eat alkaline foods, this could lead to adverse consequences. But typically our diets these days are too far on the acid side of the spectrum, so adding more alkaline foods is going to be good for us.
If you are trying to follow an alkaline diet then it would be useful to have a juicer machine. This can help you increase the amount of alkaline foods you consume in your diet. When you discover that alkaline foods are simply fruits and vegetables, it is hard to argue against it. We have been told since childhood that fruits and vegetables are good for us. This diet simply attempts to put a scientific spin on why this is.
Since consuming more fruits and vegetables is good for us in so many ways, the more that we can consume each day, the healthier we will be. But trying to eat large quantities of fruits and vegetables can be time consuming and there is obviously a limit to the amount we are able to eat. This is why juicing for health really can work wonders. It is very easy to make orange juice or an apple and carrot drink that contains up to five servings of fresh produce. Imagine having a couple of these drinks each day. This would give you so much fruit and vegetable nutrition it would most certainly have an alkalizing effect in your body and very soon start to make you feel full of energy each and every day.
