Scientists have found that the body pH is closely related to numerous diseases.
To function optimally, the body needs to be in a slightly alkaline state, but our bodies are predominantly acidic, due to the numerous processed foods, excessive sugar intake, and the exposure to various chemicals on a daily basis.
When acidic, the body must borrow minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, and sodium from vital organs and bones, in order to neutralize the acid and get rid of it. This is the initial stage of arthritis and osteoporosis.
The findings of a seven-year study conducted at the University of California, which involved 9,000 women, showed that people with chronic acidosis are at an increased risk of bone loss.
According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a lot of the hip fractures among middle-aged women are caused by high body acidity, due to a diet high in animal foods and low in vegetables.
Moreover, Dr. William Lee Cowden explains:
“Immune cells that are too acid or too alkaline do not produce antibodies or cytokines (chemical messengers to regulate other immune cells), and they have impaired phagocytosis (the ability to engulf and destroy microbes). As a result, the affected individual becomes susceptible to viral, bacterial, fungal and other infectious microbes as well as cancer.”
Alkalizing the body is essential for a strong immune system, the regeneration of bone health, and overall well-being.
