According to newest research, the pH of the body has to do a lot with specific illnesses. Namely, in order for the body to be healthy, it needs to have a balanced pH, that is, an alkaline state. Unfortunately, this is impeded and the acidic levels dominate due to our frequent consumption of processed foods and too much refined sugar on a daily basis and our constant exposure to different types of chemicals.
THE STATE OF ACIDOSIS
When the body is overly acidic, it enters a state of acidosis and it begins to take minerals like potassium, magnesium, sodium, and calcium from the bones and organs. This is done with the purpose to neutralize the surplus acid. However, this will lead to other health complications like arthritis and osteoporosis.
ACIDOSIS AND LOSS OF BONES
One 7-year study with 9000 women and done by the University of California indicates that people with an acidic pH have a higher chance of bone loss. What’s more, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition points out that hip fractures in middle-aged women are usually a consequence of high levels of acidity because of diets rich in animal foods and low on veggies.
MAKING THE BODY MORE ALKALINE
When the body is more alkaline, the immunity is stronger, the bones are regenerated, and your overall health is excellent. This being said, you will now read a recipe for homemade lemonade that has the capacity to restore the alkaline pH.
