This is a draft cheat sheet. It is a work in progress and is not finished yet.

Introd­uction

Research shows that diets consisting of highly alkaline foods — fresh vegeta­bles, fruits and unproc­essed plant-­based sources of protein, for example — result in a more alkaline urine pH level, which helps protect healthy cells and balance essential mineral levels. Alkaline diets (also known as the alkaline ash diets) have been shown to help prevent plaque formation in blood vessels, stop calcium from accumu­lating in urine, prevent kidney stones, build stronger bones, reduce muscle wasting or spasms, and much more.

Adding more of these 25 foods into your diet could help support organ health and trim your body mass.
