Eating an Alkaline Diet for Bone Health
For several years, there has been discussion
about the influence foods can have on the
acid-alkaline balance (or pH level) of blood in the
body and on health, especially bone health. The
theory is that a diet consisting mostly of food
metabolized to acids—such as protein, processed
foods, and cereals—may increase the acidity of
blood. To counteract this change in pH, alkaline
calcium compounds may leach from bones making them
weak and brittle.
Thus, the dietary advice would be to eat a diet
high in alkaline-producing foods—such as fruits and
vegetables, which are metabolized to alkaline
bicarbonates—to maintain a healthy pH level and
preserve bone mass and density.
To explore the ideas behind the alkaline-acid
balance theory, let’s start by reviewing some
science about bones. To continue

Yoga Boosts Memory and Focus
More Than Exercise
Yoga may improve brain functioning
more than aerobic exercise, at least as measured
immediately after workout. This is the conclusion of
a new study recently published in the Journal
of Physical Activity and Health.
The small study looked at
30 female college students, who didn’t practice yoga
regularly, and compared them on a number of
cognitive tests after they participated in a
20-minute yoga practice and jogged on a treadmill.
The researchers found that cognitive performance on
tests measuring memory and focus was significantly
superior after the yoga practice as compared with
both baseline and aerobic exercise.
Aerobic exercise is generally considered to be
beneficial for brain health, so how to researchers
explain the difference?
