High acidity levels in the body may play a more important role in long-term health than most realize. Acid is consumed in a number of ways indicative of an unhealthy diet; via salts, fats, sugars, and carbohydrates. Many of our favorite foods are likely a contributor to levels of acid in the bodily system.
To counterbalance these high levels of acidity (such as when overeating junk foods), it’s recommended we maintain a healthy, optimal balance of both acid and alkaline. To lower levels of acid in the body, consume such foods as leafy greens, fruits, herbs, and other vegetables. Be sure to drink plenty of water as well. Thus, by maintaining a healthy level of both acids/alkaline, the body will run more efficiently, without side-effects.
