The body’s pH level is a measure of all of its fluids and tissues, which will give some specific information on its acid-alkaline balance. On a scale from 0 to 14, a 7 is the ideal ph level. The further the body strays from this level in either direction, the more likely it is to have health issues. A poor diet is the biggest single contributing factor to throwing off your ph balance, as well as depression, stress, inactivity, environmental toxin exposure, and poor sleep. A poor ph balance can lead to gut dysbiosis, cancer, osteoporosis, and arthritis.
- Having a balanced body pH is key to good health, and is thought to prevent many diseases.
- Diet is the easiest way to adjust, control, and maintain body pH levels.
- Sugary and processed foods, alcohol, and antibiotics and raise body acidity to unhealthy levels.
“According to many experts, disease cannot thrive in a body with the correct acid/alkaline balance – and diet plays a huge role in maintaining optimum pH.”
