Balancing your Body’s pH

When you are exercising, the fluids in the body shift more towards the acidic state.  Also, there is evidence that shows that as we age our blood, along with other fluids in the body that seem to become acidic as well.  Because of the aging and exercise effect of lowering the pH balance of the body, something has to be done.

You may not be able to do anything about the age, but exercise you can do something about the nitrogen and calcium loss.  This body tries to take care of this by releasing a variety of minerals into the blood and other things like other body fluids that will counteract the acidity.  Calcium that comes from the bones and nitrogen that would come from muscles will meet this type of need.

In order to neutralize any of the acid, you will give up resources that are valuable for the body.  This basically means that you are peeling off parts of bone and muscle the longer the acidity in your blood stays high.

This can be an expensive way to solve the problem by cannibalizing any tissue from the body.  Then the body fluids may chemically do the balancing, it can really affect the body and the health of the muscles and bones.  Research shows that fruits and vegetables are the only foods that can really help the net alkaline enhancing effects.

Alkali-Forming Foods:  Soy Beans, Apricots, Figs, Spinach, Almonds, Raisins, Turnips and Carrots.

Acid – Forming Foods:  Oysters, Cheese, Fish, Blackberries, Walnuts and Cranberries.

Eat well!
