Understanding The Importance of a healthy Ph Level

What does 'body pH' mean?

The pH, which is an abbreviation for 'power of hydrogen', is a
measuring unit of acidity and alkalinity of a solution. It is
numerically equal to 7 for neutral solutions, increasing with
increasing alkalinity and decreasing with increasing acidity . Your
urine, blood, saliva, digestive juices and all the other fluids inside
and outside the body's cells each have an optimum pH level, whereby
blood pH is the most telling of all.

When at rest, the normal blood pH of a human being is slightly
alkaline, with a pH around 7.2 on the pH scale. Anything above that
value is considered alkaline; anything below is what is described as
acidic. Both, when in their extremes, are life-threatening for the
human body. If the pH value drops below 6.8 or increases above 7.8,
the cells of the body cannot function properly anymore and the human
will die.

A diet, which consists of a proper acid alkaline balance of foods,
will help to transform the body's pH balance from dangerously acidic
to be at a healthy alkaline level. Also, you should add plenty of
alkaline water to your daily diet.

A proper alkaline diet suggests taking in at least 80% of alkaline
foods, like green vegetables or grasses, and never taking in more than
20% of neutral and acidic foods. Eating green foods, vegetables and
alkaline foods will help our internal fluids to achieve its natural pH
balance as the acidic environment inside the body will be eliminated.
That means by eating vegetables all day long, or taking sprouted
greens dietary supplements, and avoiding and acidic foods, the body's
pH level will gradually be balanced. When pH balance is achieved, your
body will then start to restore its overall health.
