In order to maintain the natural body balance of 80% alkalinity / 20% acidity (the ratio of planet Earth) we must consume at least 80% alkaline-ash producing foods.

Foods are listed in diminishing order of their positive effect (green borders) in replacing alkaline reserves based upon a typical serving, i.e. raw spinach at 556 per 4c is approximately 100 times more effective than green peas at 5 per 3/4c. Negative numbers (red borders) denote a depletion effect upon alkaline reserves.
