The body pH scale goes from 0-14 and indicates the acidity or alkalinity of our body. If the environment is below 7 it is considered acidic, and a pH value of over 7 is considered alkaline. An acidic environment in our body is definitely not a good thing considering that diseases thrive in it, which is why experts recommend alkalizing your body in order to keep yourself safe.
In general, to alkalize your body you’ll need to put yourself on a healthy diet rich in alkaline foods. However, the usual western diet nowadays includes too much processed and junk food which can easily throw your pH levels out of balance and make your body highly acidic. If left untreated for a longer period, you will become more susceptible to serious diseases such as cancer.
The citrus family of fruits are acidic in taste, but alkaline in nature. Orange, lemon, kiwi, grapefruit, pomegranate, tomatoes and strawberries can all alkalize your body quickly and turn your pH environment in the body to alkaline. These fruits contain minerals which become alkaline when metabolized, so it’s the minerals that matter, not the food’s acidic taste. Today we’re going to show you how to prepare a pineapple-lemon beverage which will alkalize your body in no time.
Lemons and pineapples can restore your body’s alkaline state easily but will do so even quicker when combined. Lemons are rich in minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus and also contain a high amount of vitamin C. They have been known to fight cancer as well as numerous digestive and cardiovascular problems. On the other hand, pineapple contains manganese, beta-carotene, magnesium, calcium, vitamin C and folic acid which can further increase the alkalinity of your body. The pineapple-lemon lemonade can boost your immune system during the winter and prevent numerous infections such as colds and the flu. The lemonade will quickly alkalize your body and make the environment hostile for any pathogens to live in. It will also oxygenate your blood and boost the energy inside your cells, improving your overall health.

16 oz. of filtered water
Squeeze the lemons into a bowl, then juice the pineapple and pour everything into a pitcher. Mix well, then drink the mixture throughout the day. Repeat the process every day and you will alkalize your body and protect it from diseases soon.
