3.Go green

The most alkaline foods are foods that are high in vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.

4.Hydrate

Getting enough amount of water is of great importance. Many health problems arise from chronic dehydration. But, a lot of people still do not get enough water each day. 8 glasses of water per day are recommended. You can help yourself by setting goals, using the alarm on phones, leaving notes also can make it easy to remember. But, having a glass of water nearby is the best idea.

A glass of warm lemon water is recommended for starting your day. It provides an alkaline effect and also promotes proper hydration. Also, what you need to do is to replace your coffee or black tea with herbal tea.

5.Get oiled

But, that does not help hit the target. 2-3 tbs of omega-3 are recommended to your diet. It accelerates recovery from exercise, boosts energy, skin rejuvenation and a lot of other.
