Alkaline Acid Truth - What If Your Blood Gets Too Acidic? - Articles Surfing
Do you know the pH of a healthy body? Our blood has a pH level around 7.35 to 7.45, which is slightly alkaline. pH measures how acid or alkaline a medium is. From 1 to 7, pH level is considered to be acidic while from 7 to 14, it is considered being alkaline. 7 by itself is a neutral state. Why do you need to know this? Our energy level is heavily dependent on our pH level. And having a diet that would restore our pH would boost our energy level.
It all starts in the bloodstream. Think of the bloodstream as a superhighway with stops all over the body. Red blood cells are the commuting traffic riding along the bloodstream in a hurry to get to work. These red blood cells each have a negative charge on them, and this keeps them from getting into fender benders and collisions in the bloodstream. When the negative charge is stripped away from the red blood cells, they cluster together and can cause gridlock and bottlenecks in the bloodstream. In short, the traffic in the bloodstream isn't flowing as smoothly and it causes everything to slow down. If you've ever been stuck in freeway traffic you know how frustrating this is.
This stress on the body causes a domino effect, which eventually saps the energy away and makes you tired and sluggish. Acid is the culprit in the bloodstream traffic jam. When acid is introduced into the bloodstream it eats away at the negative charge that surrounds each red blood cell and causes all sorts of problems. How can you avoid this? The answer is quite simple and it starts with what you put in your stomach. Red blood cells are created by the food that you eat. When the stomach works on digesting food, it leaves behind natural acidic waste. Your body eliminates this waste through your urine and sweat, but there comes a point when the waste build up is too great to eliminate.
What happens when your body is not able to eliminate these wastes? These wastes would store in your body and block your bloodstream up. The alkaline cells in our body would starts to react with the acid cells in our body. The cells would then neutralize each other and a lot of energy is wasted in expelling this waste. Most of the damage would be done on the body and the fight would carry on for very long. Eventually, when these wastes are piled in our body, most of the energy would be depleted and leave our body open to disease and waste.
What can you do to save this situation? You would need a higher energy level to fend off the diseases and allows us to have strong cellular regeneration. The first thing we should do is to change our diet by reversing this breakdown of our body. Whatever we eat would determine how much acidic waste gets stored in our body. The more alkaline food we choose, the lesser the waste would be accumulated in our body which would ensure us of a good health.
The old adage 'you are what you eat' is absolutely true. By controlling the amounts of alkaline food you ingest you are giving your body a fighting chance. Find books and lists that outline which foods are alkaline and which ones are acidic. By limiting your intake of acidic foods and increasing your intake of alkaline food with the pH miracle diet you can increase your stamina, endurance, and the overall performance of your body machine.
