Reduce Metabolic Acidosis in Your Body Naturally!

Metabolic acidosis in your body is a precursor to disease and poor health! Most common illnesses thrive in an acidic environment.

What is acidosis? How can you prevent or reverse it? Metabolic acidosis is a result of the blood and the fluids in your body becoming too acidic.

We measure the acidity/alkalinity in the body using the PH (Potential Hydrogen) scale. The scale goes from 0 to 14. Any reading below 7 means your body is acidic. A reading of 7 is neutral and anything above 7 means your body is alkaline. Human blood should be slightly above 7 (7.35-7.45) on the PH scale. An acidic reading of just 6.9 can lead to a coma or death!

Acidity in the body can be a result of eating acidic foods, stress, toxins or lack of oxygen in the cells.

An example of acidic foods are meat, eggs and diary products. Fresh vegetables are considered alkaline.

The result of acidity in the body is a lack of energy, a decline in the body's ability to absorb nutrients, detoxify itself and repair damaged tissues.

The body goes to great lengths to maintain the proper PH balance. It will even take calcium from our bones to maintain a proper balance.

The good news is acidosis can be corrected by eating more alkalizing foods and by taking alkalizing supplements. It is recommended that your diet consist of 60% alkaline and 40% acidic foods.
