Start your day with a Millet Breakfast. Many foods can be distinguished as having a basic or acidic effect. As the name suggests, acidic foods lead to acidification in the body. This means that toxins build up in the body and organs and they cannot eliminate entirely naturally. This can have dire consequences: Over-acidic bodies are the ideal breeding ground for bacteria, germs, and fungi. Besides, over-acidification leads to a bad mood, irritability, and sometimes severe mood swings.
Grains such as wheat and barley, in particular, promote acidification in the body and therefore have a negative impact on health. The taste of food has nothing to do with its classification. Food either has an acidic or alkaline effect, but this process only becomes apparent when metabolized. Like the pseudo-grain quinoa, Millet has an alkaline effect and contributes to a healthy balance in the acid-base balance.
