We all know what alkaline diet is. Basically, what you eat every day can have an alkaline or acidic effect on you and it can also affect your everyday life and chores too.
If your body contains too many acids you are bound to experience weight gain, tiredness, malfunction of digestion etc.
What is the role of alkalinity in your body?
The pH scale runs from 0-14 (14 is the most alkaline, 0 is the most acidic, and 7 is neutral.The human body needs a slightly alkaline environment of 7.4 to maintain good state.But, certain systems and organs show the difference in pH levels.
In fact, the skin has a pH of 5, and the saliva has a pH of 6.5-7.0.Moreover, the digestive tract’s pH varies from 1.5 to 7.0. It is dependent on many factors especially your diet.
According to a study by Dr. Otto Warburg for which he received a Nobel Prize back in 1931 almost all sorts of cancer are developed in an acidic environment, so cancer cannot spread in a body which represents an alkaline.
Acidosis also knew as over-acidity can further lead to the development of osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases.
You can detect if your body shows signs of being too acidic in a couple of ways:
- Saliva test or symptoms like
- Cramping of your muscles or experiencing pain even after walking for a short while
- Not being able to breathe properly
- Chronic fatigue
- Running out of breath all the time
If your pH level drops, then your body is fighting to create homeostasis and maintain the optimal pH balance by protecting some organs like your liver, kidneys, and lungs. This allows the maintenance of a normal pH value ranging from 7.35 to 7.45.
