I need to know the truth....  The guy at the health food store told me that sour things will make me more alkaline, and that sweet things will make me more acid, so he did a muscle test between the gala & granny smith, and said that gs is best for me.

Well, I had been eating read delicious and gala and was doing fine.  However, I've begun to have a lot of digestive issues this week (acid feeling stomach) and I wonder if it's the GS apples.

Any info on this?  I would think that tart and sour things would make me more acid, and the sweet would make me more alkaline, so what he told me was a surprise.

I think the granny smith apples started a detox process.  They are higher in malic acid than most other apples and it works like a solvent on stagnant bile in the liver. Your body is probably trying to flush out the toxins released from eating the apples.  It's ultimately a good thing, just unpleasant until the bad stuff is gone. Make sure you drink plenty of water to help the process along.

This is interesting.  I've not seen specific varieties of apples suggested for blood types.  I guess I never really thought about the alkaline/acid connection since the TYPEbase shows them as neutral for all blood types across the board with the exception of type O nonnies for which they are an avoid.

There is a chart hanging in my grocer's produce department which shows the various apples from sweet to tart.  I always choose apples on the tart end (thinking glucose) of the chart i.e. Pink Lady, Braeburn, Granny Smith, McIntosh.  

I'm curious to hear more opinions on this topic.

I have always preferred the tart apples, I really don't like the "delicious" varieties, according to this: http://drbenkim.com/articles-antioxidants.html red delicious apples are higher in antioxidants than other varieties.

I think that is true of me and coffee, and maybe me and red wine. Both make me feel a little nauseous, but I wonder if it isn't cleansing because they are both beneficials for me. A little puzzling with red wine, since alcohol could be bad for my liver. What ya think?


You guys are great!

Interesting question, Narnia.  Granny smiths upset my stomach and red delicious are distasteful to me.  I'm drawn to the Fuji or Red Gravenstein.  They seem somewhere in the middle.

Sour food making the body alkaline . . . I've always heard this also.  And it does not work for my body at all.  I can handle an occasional squeeze of lemon on fish (maybe a couple times a year), but in general, lemon gives me horrible heartburn, no matter how diluted it is.  Same with grapefruits and fresh pineapple.  All I can manage is diluted pineapple juice.

I like Romes, Pink Ladies, Granny Smiths, and Golden Deliscious. I dislike Red Deliscious.

It is tricky at times to discern whether those types of symptoms are the result of something good or something bad happening.

There are occasions when the liver isn't working efficiently and has a hard time processing caffeine and alcohol.  So red wine wouldn't be beneficial for you in that situation.  You could always try the liver detoxification protocol from the BTD encyclopedia and then see if you do better with both of them.

Also, if you aren't producing enough glucaric acid your liver can have a hard time doing its job.  I think caffeine and alcohol might be processed by glucaric acid so another thing you could try is taking calcium d-glucarate as a supplement.  NAP carries it as Detoxical D.

I know my liver isn't great. Thanks for the suggestion. The reaction comes and goes, so I think when it is happening I'll avoid the coffee and wine. I also need to get familiar with the A type supplements.

I imagine the delicious apples have the most antioxidants due to the  skin....they pretty much have the darkest skin.

I have the same reactions to these foods as you. I can handle a certain amount, but if I eat too much of them, or when I already feel acidic, I get heartburn
