How to Maintain pH Balance

Maintaining the correct pH balance in our body is critical to optimising our overall health and wellbeing. pH balance is our first and best line of defense against sickness and disease and to increase health and vitality.

Unfortunately, most of what we eat and drink these days is highly acidic, so it’s important to ensure we have some high alkaline foods in our diet to increase our body’s pH.

  • A pH of 0 indicates a high level of acidity.
  • A pH of 7 is neutral.
  • A pH of 14 is the most basic, or alkaline.

 

Importance of pH Balance

Our bodies live and die at a cellular level and the cells must maintain alkalinity in order to function and stay alive. An acidic state causes lack of oxygen at a cellular level. A pH of below 7.4 is sub-optimal rpoviding the perfect environment for bacteria, mold and viruses to grow. A low or acidic pH also results in the body storing acid in our fat cells resulting in the production of more fat cells (the last thing we need!). so.... returning your body to the correct pH level we are allowing our body to lose unwanted fat cells.

Acidic foods are considered to have a pH below 4.6 the things we need to avoid including soda, processed foods, fish, sugar, grains and processed meats.

Alkaline foods include those listed below

  • Unsweetened milk or yogurt
  • Fresh vegetables including potatos
  • Forest fruits
  • Beans and lentils
  • Soy products and tofu
  • Avocardo
  • Coconut
  • Herbal Teas

How to Balance your pH

To balance your pH and optimise your health and wellbeing we recommend eating plenty of the foods from the alkaline list and limiting the intake of acidic foods. Another way to stabilise pH is to drink alkaline water. Normal drinking water sits at a pH of 7 - neutral. Products including AquaLove Water have a pH of 9-10 making it easier to maintain neutral pH in the body.
