Is your body too acidic?
To achieve a true sense of wellness, it is important for your body to maintain an alkaline level of pH 7.4. This ensures the vital functioning of all the cells, systems and organs in the body. Having too acidic a pH level can bring about discomfort and lead to health issues. These health issues include cardiovascular damage, weight gain, obesity, diabetes, bladder or kidney disorders, premature aging, low energy and chronic fatigue.
How acidic are you? Find out with this simple urine test.
Use a pH strip for a quick urine pH check. Test yourself an hour before a meal or two hours after a meal. In the morning, the pH level of your urine usually has a reading between 6.0-6.5 and in the evening, it is within the range of 6.5-7.0.
How does the acidity level in your body increase?
Your diet, lifestyle, and environment are the three biggest contributing factors to increasing acidity levels.
- Diet: Different foods are acidic or alkaline in nature, and contain different levels of acidity or alkalinity levels. For example, meat is acidic in nature, while fruits and vegetables are alkaline. A diet rich in meat and low in vegetables will result in an acidic body environment.
- Lifestyle: Stress, lack of sleep, lack of exercise or too much exercise
- Environment: Pollution
Your Diet Affects Your Health!
When you are what you eat, certain foods can cause the acidity levels in your body to increase. The degree of acidity depends on the nutritional components.
Contain calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, and iron
|Meat, eggs, dairy products||Fruits and vegetables|
|Processed food, white flour and sugar||Seeds, seaweeds, legumes|
Meats, eggs and dairy are acid-producers, and so are processed foods like white flour, sugary foods, and soft drinks. Fruits and vegetables are the best choices of alkalizing foods to complement your daily diet. The unbalanced pH conditions our body to normalize the pH with minerals storage – including calcium, potassium, magnesium – from vital organs and bones to buffer the acid. This impedes normal body systems and may leads to illnesses.
Diseases are acidic in nature. An acidic body environment decreases nutrient absorption, lowers energy production, decreases cellular repair and recovery, which increases susceptibility to fatigue and illnesses. A prolonged acidic body condition leads to illnesses and discomfort:
- Low energy and chronic fatigue
- Muscle pain and soreness
- Weight gain, obesity, diabetes
- Lowered immunity level
- Joint pain
- Cardiovascular damage
- Accelerated free radical damage
- Weak skin, hair and nails, and premature aging
- Bladder and kidney disorders
