Does alkalinity and acidity play an important role in the healthy state of our body?

Understanding pH
pH (potential of hydrogen) is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution
. It is measured on a scale of 0-14 (see image above). The lower the pH the more acid the solution is and the higher the pH the more alkaline (or base) the solution is. When a solution is neither acid or alkaline, it has a pH 7 which is neutral

pH in relation to our body
Water is the most abundant compound in the human body comprising of 70% of the body. The body has an acid-alkaline (or acid-base) ratio called the pH which a balance between positively charged ions (acid-forming) and negatively charged ions (alkaline-forming). The body continually strives to maintain a balanced pH. When the balance is compromised health issues arise.

It is also important to understand that we are not talking about stomach acid or the pH of the stomach which is always acidic since it uses acid for proper digestion. Food in the stomach is acidic while food in the intestines is alkaline. We are talking about the pH of the body's fluids and tissues which are entirely different matters. The human body has adapted to two types of digestion:
  • alkaline for starches
  • acid for proteins

Keeping the right pH balance for good health
The body is able to assimilate minerals and nutrients properly only when its pH is balanced. It is therefore possible for a person to be consuming nutrients and yet unable to absorb or use them. If you are not achieving expected results from a nutritional (including herbal) program, it is possible that there is acid alkaline imbalance. No nutritional program would work if the body's pH is out of balance amongst other issues. This acid alkaline state might in turn affect the microbiota (friendly bacteria) of the digestive system.

It is important to know that true health lives in an alkaline state.
