(NaturalNews) An alkaline diet maximizes people's vitality, since the tissues become supple and inflammation is lessened. There are many people who suffer from inflammations these days because of a non-alkaline diet. These inflammations cause diseases such as arthritis, cancer, irritable bowel disorders and fibromyalgia. When the body is alkaline, the bones become stronger, preventing osteoporosis.

There are a variety of alkaline foods that should be consumed regularly:


Spinach

Spinach is very alkaline just like all green foods. It is packed with chlorophyll, which builds the blood and provides alkalinity. It has the vitamins A, C, B2, E and K and the nutrients calcium, dietary fiber, folate, iron magnesium, manganese and potassium.


Kale

Kale fights cancer, lowers cholesterol and contains a lot of antioxidants. It is rich in vitamins A, C and K and chlorophyll. It has glucosinolates that prevent cancer, because they become cancer-fighting compounds once inside the body.

Cucumber

Cucumber is 95% water and is highly alkaline. It has a lot of antioxidants, such as the lignans secoisolariciresinol, pinoresinol and lariciresinol, which, according to research, can lower the risk of some cancers and cardiovascular diseases. Cucumber can ward off breast, ovarian, prostate and uterine cancers. It also contains vitamins A, B, C and K and alkaline minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc.

Broccoli

Broccoli is another food that can inhibit cancer and enhance the body's cardiovascular system, digestive system and detoxification processes. Because it is an anti-inflammatory and provides sufficient antioxidants, it protects the immune system, metabolism and the skin. It should be consumed raw or steamed four times in seven days because of its substantial alkalinity.

Avocado

It was believed before that avocado can cause weight gain, because 85 percent of its calories are from fats. It should be remembered though that these are good fats that do not cause weight gain. Avocados have a large quantity of oleic acid, which reduces total cholesterol levels. It also increases high-density lipoproteins and decreases low-density lipoproteins, which are known as the "bad" cholesterol. Oleic acid slows down the occurrence of cardiovascular disease and enhancess the creation of antioxidants. The omega oils in avocado increase metabolism, encouraging weight loss. It also has a lot of other nutrients that prevent inflammation, cancer and diabetes and promote a good heart. It has major antioxidants like alpha-carotene, selenium, beta-carotene and lutein too.

Celery

Celery is another highly alkaline food. It is rich with vitamin C and the nutrients called "phthalides" and "coumarins." The former reduces cholesterol, while the other one inhibits several types of cancer. Celery also has a lot of sodium and potassium, which help eradicate excess fluids from the body.

Bell pepper

Bell pepper is also an alkaline food, because it is loaded with a lot of antioxidants. According to research, this vegetable reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, inflammation, macular degeneration and other health concerns. It also has vitamins A, C and E.
In order to reduce inflammation and remove toxins from the body, it is important to eat mostly alkaline food and stay away from acidic food. Regular consumption of the alkaline foods mentioned in this article will help people have a healthy alkaline diet.
