In some other articles that I published on this website I told you about the pre-conception diet that is recommended to the women aiming for a male offspring: a diet that is rich in salty and high-potassium food items, while being poor in high-calcium (e.g., dairy) and high-magnesium products. Regarding the diets for conceiving a boy, there is another essential aspect that a future mother needs to take into account: the pH of her vagina – more precisely, the alkalizing (i.e., alkaline producing or alkaline forming) foods should be preferred.
Which are the Best Alkaline Foods to Conceive a Boy ?
When choosing the food stuff that you intend to include in your pre-conception diet, you should pay attention not only to the acid/alkaline effect of the food on your body, but also to the other two aspects that increase the likelihood of having a male offspring (about these two aspects I told you a lot in other articles posted on this website):
- diet should be high in sodium and potassium;
- diet should be low in calcium and magnesium.
Therefore, the food items that are ideal when trying to conceive a boy ought to have these three qualities, i.e. they should be:
- “alkaline forming” (alkalizing, alkaline producing, i.e., have an alkaline effect on the body)
- high in sodium and/or potassium
- low in calcium and/or magnesium.
In this article, I selected the five most healthy alkaline foods that follow all the three conditions mentioned above and which, consequently, boost the chances of getting pregnant with a male descendant. Anyway, you must be aware of the fact that, in addition to these five products, there are many other famous alkalizing fruits and vegetables, some of which are high-magnesium (such as bananas, which are also high-potassium) or high-calcium (like broccoli), facts that make them unsuitable when aiming for a boy – this does not mean that you should not consume them, just make sure that your intake of sodium and potassium exceeds your intake of calcium and magnesium, while the foods that you eat are alkaline-forming and not acidifying (i.e., acid-forming).
