What is your body pH value?
In chemistry, solutions with a pH lower than 7 are considered as acidic while solutions with pH over 7 are considered as basic or alkaline. The purest water has pH of 7. Because the human body is consisted of 50-75% of water, it is logically that there is a relation between body pH and ailments. The people who are keeping their pH value normal or the alkaline value, will have good overall health.
Question: How can we achieve alkaline pH value?
Answer: By consuming raw and balanced diet we can achieve alkaline pH value. By consuming processed food, our body will easily become acidic.
You will affect your pH value seriously if you drink soft drinks which pH value is 2.5. Remember that it is far easier to make your body acidic than alkaline. Anyway, there are some methods proved as successful in enhancing the process of becoming alkaline.
Strangely, the fruits that are acidic (lemon, lime, orange, tangerine and grapefruit), pineapple, cranberry, kiwi, kumquat, pomegranate, strawberry and tomato are having alkalizing effect on our organisms. Keep in mind that initially acidity of food isnt connected to its alkalizing effect. Some of the most acidic fruits are having mineral structure that makes the human become more alkaline once they are metabolized. Thus, it is the minerals that are important, not the foods initial acidity.
