Alkaline acid balance

Alkaline/Acid Balance

What is acid, what is alkaline and how are they measured?
A little science is necessary to explain the importance of alkaline/acid balance to overall wellness. Acid is anything in the body that can give off hydrogen ions when dissolved in water. Acids are corrosive. Alkalinity is a measure of the ability to neutralise acids, having a pH value greater than 7. The pH scale runs from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral, anything below acid, and anything above 7 alkaline.

pH scale balance

Our bodies are designed to perform at their peak with a blood pH of 7.35-7.45. Too much acid in your blood is like trying to run your car with dirty old oil in your engine. It becomes sluggish, and if not fixed can break down completely.

Alkaline/acid balance is the measure of good health.

In 1988 the US Surgeon General’s Report on Health and Nutrition pointed out “one personal choice seems to influence long-term health more than any other – What We Eat”.  Most of us now look for ways to measure the effects of what we eat; cholesterol counts, calorie counters, blood pressure, and sugar levels. An overwhelming body of scientific reports today point to the single most important measure to indicate our health is the pH of our blood and tissues – how acid or alkaline we are.

In the same way our body operates in a very narrow temperature range, the smallest increases in acidity can have dramatic negative effects. Our body’s natural defence systems are overwhelmed by a build up of toxins and acidity. By helping our bodies eliminate toxins and increase alkalinity on a regular basis, we take enormous strain off our organs and immune systems and allow them to do what they do best; concentrate on building health, strength and vitality.

It’s time to give your body a chance with a prevention strategy, it’s much more effective than trying to treat the downward spiral of premature aging.

Achieve natural wellness by choosing alkalizing foods. 

One major influence on alkaline/acid balance of your body is what you eat. Most processed foods are acid producing, while there are a range of fresh fruits and vegetables that are alkaline-forming. The best choices aren’t always obvious, for instance asparagus is an alkaline super-food, while soybeans are extremely acid forming.

Work smarter with our qualified naturopaths and nutritionists to find out what your body needs to function at its best. Discover the secrets of alkaline/acid balance through food choice, one of the keys to overall wellness and beauty from within.
