In some of articles I’ve published before 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 foods, 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 Give Birth to 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 get pregnant with 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).
Carrot – Maybe the Best Alkaline Food for Conceiving a Boy Baby
The carrot is not only ideal when trying to get pregnant with a baby boy (because it is alkalinizing, high-sodium, high-potassium, low-calcium and low-magnesium), but also excellent for the overall health, being one of the most valuable vegetables. The carrots are very good for: skin, eyes, liver, blood (they purify and build it, being highly recommended when suffering from anemia), bones, teeth, heart, colon, etc. This precious vegetable also reduces the risk of cancer. However, be aware that some persons are allergic to carrots. Avoid drinking too much carrot juice, as it is very rich in Vitamin A (which causes important health problems if its intake is too high) and potassium (whose intake must be limited when suffering from kidney problems).
