The Ultimate Secret to Anti Aging
Posted On: 01 Apr 2014 View All Articles | Post New Article

Balancing the pH is a major step toward well-being and greater health. We tend to get older because we do not remove the toxins and wastes from out body. We burn nutrients to allow our body to function in the right way. Proteins, fats and carbohydrates are the main substances or foods that we usually eat. When these are oxidized in your cells, they become organic acids – fatty acids, uric acids, carbonic acids, lactic acids and ammonia. In fact, fats are already acidic before the process of oxidation. The lifestyle and environment that people live prevents them from removing waste products that our body generates. Acidic waste products accumulate in your body. This is how you get old.

The situation becomes even worse when organic acids combine with inorganic minerals as sulfur, chlorine and phosphor. These acid minerals get into your body from acidic foods – root crops, meats and grains. The main secret to anti aging and remain energetic is to eat more alkaline foods. We should eat more foods that contain magnesium, sodium, calcium and potassium. They are called alkaline minerals. Any kind of food can generate waste products. The food is called good or bad depending on the amount of wastes it produces. The waste products that accumulate in your body must be removed as soon as possible. Your body tries to get rid of acid wastes through perspiration and urine. But the body is unable to dispose of all waste products it generates. Most of the food we prefer to eat is acidic. Meats and grains are acidic whereas vegetables and fruits are alkaline. Alkaline foods and water helps your body dissolve and remove acid wastes. If you manage to remove acid waste products from your body, you will be able to slow down the aging process. Acids in your body may cause some serious health problems – diabetes, asthma, arthritis, allergies, high blood pressure, etc. In some cases, acids can start damaging healthy cells. Healthy cells are alkaline, but cancer cells are acidic. Acid wastes cause the aging process. Removing these waste products is called the anti-aging process.

An acidic balance will:  decrease the body's ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells, decrease it's ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it's ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness.

To maintain health, the diet should consist of 60% alkaline forming foods & 40% acid forming foods.

To restore health, the diet should consist of 80% alkaline forming foods & 20% acid forming foods.
