Building block 3:

activating metabolism by exercise and an acid-base-diet

For the Basica® Energy Diet to be successful, it should really pep the metabolism up. The right amount of exercise is essential. A brisk walk, cycling or hiking are ideal for stimulating the metabolism. Working up a sweat every now and then is good for the circulation.

You can gain more enjoyment from exercise with an acid-base diet. This not only helps with reaching the ideal weight for sporting activities, but also activates the metabolism. Not only is the calorie supply reduced during an acid-base –diet, but also alkaline mineral compounds are supplied. The body especially needs such compounds during a base diet, since more acid develops (so-called keto acids) during the degradation of fat. Too much acid can decrease the degradation of fat and body weight is not reduced at all or only very slowly. Many alkaline mineral compounds and micronutrients are supplied in the acid-base diet. You can support your acid-base diet with the intake of Basica® and thus also increase the proportion of alkaline mineral compounds ingested.


It is sensible to drink a lot during an acid-base diet. Two litres of mineral water, unsweetened sparkling fruit juice or, for a change, a cup of fruity or herbal tea every day. A high supply of liquids is necessary so that excess acid can be excreted more easily via the kidneys.
