How to alkalize your body
In order to counteract acidification, it is necessary to actively de-acidify the body. Deacidification can be done in several ways:
Limit acidifying factors:
- It is advisable to avoid foods and activities that strongly acidify the body, such as stress, smoking, drugs, excessive muscle strain and harmful radiation as much as possible.
- Limit consumption of acidic foods and drinks. Foods containing animal proteins, sugars, carbonated drinks, alcohol, coffee, etc. Eat more deacidifying foods such as vegetables, potatoes, nuts, etc. (click here for detailed information on the acid -base diet).
Unfortunately it is almost impossible to minimize or completely avoid all the above factors. Mobile phones, wireless Internet, (recreational) sports, a party with wine, beer , soft drinks and snacks are often too tempting.
Restoring the balance between acidity an alkaline, by neutralizing accumulated acid waste in the body, is active called de-acidification. Active de-acidification can be done in the following ways:
Increase your alkaline buffer!
Sodium bicarbonate is our alkaline buffer which neutralizes excessive acid waste in the blood. By increasing this buffer daily, less acid waste is left behind. The active alkalizing effect can be obtained with Alka Drops®, Alka Tabs® and Alka® Tabs Calcium.
Drink herbal extracts!
For centuries people have been drinking herbal extracts in order to clean their body. Every herb contains several elements which can break down acid salts formed in the body. In order to stimulate the deacidification process, drinking herbal extracts is vital. Alka® Tea is specially formulated from 52 types of herbs that best help the body to deacidify on a daily basis.
Take alkalizing and mineralizing baths!
Acidic waste is mostly expelled through our largest organ, the skin! Acids are usually guided outside via the pores. This is why many people often secrete unpleasant body odor when the skin becomes too strong acidic. The secretion of acidic waste through the skin can lead to various (chronic) skin conditions like eczema, red skin, yeast infections and inflammation. Alkalizing baths stimulate the removal of acid waste from the inside out. In addition, the acidic surface layer is cleaned. Pores are opened to newly formed sebum which protects the skin. Minerals and trace elements that are absorbed through the skin cells nourish the skin. Alka® Bath is a unique alkalizing formula to de-acidify by taking alkalizing and mineralizing baths and showers.
Nourish the body with alkaline nutrients!
Feeding your body with daily nutrients protects you from acidification. These nutrients are essential to compensate for daily inpouring of acidifying foods. Alkalizing nutrients include vegetables, various fruits, grasses (barley grass, wheat grass), algae (chlorella, spirulina). Furthermore, additional fibers, enzymes and probiotics are essential to keep the acid-alkaline balance in check. Good health starts with a good metabolism through the intestines. Alka® Greens is a "superfood" that consists of a wide selection of alkalizing and orthomolecular nutrients that nourish the body, de-acidify and protect against acidification.
Deacidification and "enjoy"
Through daily de-acidification you can enjoy a "piece of meat and a glass of wine or beer", or other acidifying foods without guilt. If you suffer from acidification problems, it is advisable, besides active de-acidification, to reduce the amount of acidifying foods and activities.
