Dietary supplements such as basaltabs and base powders are said to help keep the acid-base balance in addition to basic foods. Basentabs and base powders ensure that the acids in the body are neutralized again. This reduces excess acid in the body and strengthens the immune system. In general, the Basentabs and base powders are a mixture of different mineral salts and sucrose or lactose.
Basentabs and base powder
Since you can easily take too few bases in an unbalanced diet, basaltabs and base powders should provide support. As a side effect when taking Basentabs or base powder diarrhea may occur at the beginning, since the ingestion of the base powder particularly stimulates organs such as the small intestine.
Examples of alkaline supplements are the Basentabs pH balance PASCOE®, the Naturafit® Basentabs or the tri.balance® base powder.
Base cure for purifying
Who wants to purify his body around, can perform a base cure. By drinking basic tea, it is first ensured that the contaminants stored in the connective tissue are dissolved. Basic tea consists of herbal mixtures that can contain up to 50 different herbs. Simply pour one to two teaspoons of the herb mixture with 0.5 liters of water and leave to soak. However, you should not consume more than 0.5 liters of basic tea daily.
Subsequently, the dissolved substances are neutralized. The thus increased demand for basic minerals is covered by base tablets or base powder. Consequently, the pollutants can be excreted. In order not to overload the kidneys too much should be drunk at this stage. In addition, baths with basic bath salts can be taken. On alkaline bath not only ensures that the body is detoxified, but also help us to a soft skin.
Basenfasten: diet by alkaline foods
If the effect of the base cure is not enough, you can also do base fasting. This is not fasting in the classical sense, but a purely based on basic foods diet. The period of basking should be between one and six weeks.
Basen fasting detoxifies the body and relieves the metabolism. In addition, alkaline-rich minerals are replenished by a base-rich diet. Basen fasting is basically suitable for everyone, but especially for people with obesity, diabetes, hypertension or rheumatism.
Criticism of the concept of basic nutrition
Basic nutrition is a concept of alternative medicine. In scientific medicine there is so far no scientific evidence for the concept. Here, chronic hyperacidity is only known in certain diseases, in healthy people, however, it comes only to acute acidosis or alkalosis.
Therefore, it is doubtful that a diet that does not correspond to the ratio 25:75 actually leads to chronic hyperacidity and really leads to diseases such as osteoporosis. It is believed that we already have one balanced nutrition sufficiently protects against hyperacidity.
It is also controversial whether the basic diet is suitable as a permanent diet. However, a base-rich diet could be useful for the elderly or patients with kidney disease or diabetes, as they suffer in part from strong fluctuations in the acid-base balance and frequent hyperacidity. However, in such cases, use should be made of base-rich foods rather than base tablets or base powders.
