Eating a well-balanced diet and exercising on a regular basis is essential to good health. Including more alkaline foods in your diet increase the alkaline content in the blood, which decreases the acid content. A more alkaline blood pH helps protect healthy cells and balance essential mineral levels. Alkaline diets protect bone density and muscle mass, lowering the risk of chronic pain and inflammation and improving immune function. Many high-alkaline foods are a delicious contribution to a healthy body.

1. Cucumbers

2. Seeded Watermelon

3. Avocado

4. Cayenne Peppers

5. Bell Peppers

6. Spinach

7. Kale

8. Bananas

9. Broccoli

10. Celery

NOTE: Not only is celery alkaline, but it also has extremely high water content and lots of vitamin C, which helps support the immune system, reduce inflammation, and improve cardiovascular health. Potassium and sodium also help rid the body of excess fluids. Celery is also very high in fiber, which can reduce constipation and aid weight loss.

Lemons - believe it or not, are very alkaline too. They are high in vitamin C, and they possess antiviral and antibacterial properties.
