Many nutritionists and personal trainers talk about the benefits of eating alkaline foods to balance the acidity of most foods we eat in a typical Western diet.
I was thinking, to counter this, along with eating your greens etc, could you drink sodium bicarbonate and get any long term changes to blood pH?
I had a quick search on PubMed, but didn't look for that long. Anyway, what I saw related mostly to acute changes in blood pH prior to exercise.
Anyone got any thoughts, or know of any research to support this?
Also, what are the benefits of eating alkaline foods?
