Let’s talk acidity. The fluids in your body can be used to determine health status based on how acidic they are. This is measured on the pH scale (potential of hydrogen), with acids and alkalis on opposite ends of the biochemical spectrum. The more hydrogen atoms a substance has, the more acidic it is. So the fewer hydrogen atoms, the more alkaline it is.
The pH balance that you’ve heard about is the physiological balancing act of all the acidic and alkaline substances throughout the body. The most critical pH is in the blood. All other fluids and organs will fluctuate in range in order to keep the blood at a slightly alkaline pH of 7.35-7.45. However, lifestyle factors can make us more acidic. We are alkaline by design, but acidic by function.
Diet, stress, lack of rest, and even the use of pharmaceutical drugs contribute to acidity. When the body becomes too acidic and goes uncorrected over time, your unbalanced pH can contribute to disease formation and progression. But corrective measures can be taken, such as eating an alkaline diet, reducing stress, and taking alkalizing mineral supplements.
Browse our selection of alkaline supplements to help balance pH in the body. And best of all, you can bet they’re potent and pure. We don’t use magnesium stearate or junk fillers that interfere with mineral absorption.
