Health is a matter of balance, and the foods that we choose have a great impact on our health. When we consume a diet high in fat, processed foods, sugar, and protein—also known as the standard American diet (SAD) — our bodies become more acidic, and less resilient. When we enjoy a diet rich in greens, plants, fruits, vegetables, minerals, and antioxidants, our cells become more alkaline, and more resistant to everyday stress. Just a slight shift in either direction can have a dramatic impact on our health—for better or worse.

Download the “Food Effects” Chart here as a guide to which foods are “acid-forming,” and which are “alkaline-forming.” This chart was created using a proprietary formula based on each food’s nutritional composition.
