Many people are unaware of the acidic foods and beverages that are consumed on a regular basis. Acidic consumption contributes to a host of physical ailments and ailments, but it also throws our pH Balance out of whack. pH is the abbreviation for potential hydrogen. The pH of any solution is the measure of its hydrogen-ion concentration. The higher the pH reading, the more alkaline and oxygen rich the fluid is. The lower the pH reading, the more acidic and oxygen deprived the fluid is. The pH range is from 0 to 14, with 7.0 being neutral. Anything above 7.0 is alkaline, anything below 7.0 is considered acidic.
An imbalance in the body’s pH may lead to serious health concerns, including:
- Hormone concerns
- Cardiovascular weakness
- Weight gain/loss
- Bladder and kidney concerns
- Immune deficiency
- Acceleration of free radical damage
- Structural system weakness, including brittle bones, hip fractures and joint discomfort
- Stressed liver function
- Low energy
- Slow digestion and elimination

The body has to have a balanced pH like most living things on earth or it does not function correctly. The alkaline level is very important because research has already proven that disease cannot survive in an alkaline state and yet they thrive in an acidic environment.
