It's a well-established fact that there is a direct correlation between your body's pH levels and cancer. Simply put, cancer can only grow in an acidic environment. When a body's pH is alkaline, cancer loses its ability to thrive. Unfortunately, the most popular foods and drinks in available today's society are acidic. Included on this list, is easily one of widely consumed beverages on the planet: coffee. Whether you enjoy brewed medium roasted coffee or coffee pods, there's no need to fret as the following article will show you a very simple, cheap, and effective way to turn your coffee alkaline.
The magic ingredient isn't some fancy pill or special concoction that you need to purchase. It's probably already sitting in your refrigerator. In order to turn your coffee alkaline just using baking soda which is also known as sodium bi-carbonate. While generic baking soda will work, we recommend using aluminum-free baking soda.
Personally, I'm the type that appreciates visual confirmations. If you're like me, first purchase some pH test strips (even beyond this coffee alkaline test, it's good to have them as they can help you stay in tune with your body.) Make your morning cup of coffee and briefly dip your test strip into it. Compare the color to the chart that came with your pH test kit and you'll immediately see that your coffee is acidic.
Now drop a small pinch of baking soda and thoroughly stir it into your coffee. Remember, only a pinch is needed. If you're using a teaspoon to measure it out, then you're already using WAY too much baking soda. Retest the coffee's pH with a new strip and you'll see that your coffee is now alkaline! With this simple tip, your coffee's chemical composition has completely changed for the better.
One might naturally ask, “What happens if I add cream to my coffee.” Milk is slightly acidic. While it's not as acidic as coffee itself, it does increase the overall acidity. But even if you add generous amounts of cream to your coffee, you'll find that a small pinch of baking soda is more than enough to keep your coffee on the alkaline side of your pH test strip.
Often times the best solutions are the simplest ones. Using baking soda to turn your coffee alkaline is no exception. What's great about using this tip is that in addition to normalizing the pH of your body, you don't have to compromise the flavor of your coffee. In fact, you won't even notice a difference in the taste.
Using baking soda in coffee has become a normal part of my coffee experience. Many coffee drinkers will even take a dash of baking soda with them to turn their coffee alkaline when they're on the go.
Another way to keep your body alkaline while drinking coffee is to buy herbal coffee that's naturally non acidic. These types of coffee can be extremely helpful in getting your body into an alkaline state. I personally recommend Teeccino as an excellent coffee alternative. In addition to being non acidic, Teeccino herbal coffee also gives you a natural energy boost via nutrients rather than through the stimulant we all know as caffeine. One of the most important qualities of Teeccino herbal coffee is that it also tastes like real coffee. Their flavors are rich, vibrant, and deep enough to fulfill your coffee fix and then some.
With the above tips, acidic coffee is a thing of the past. Happy drinking!
