The ideal pH value in the human body is considered to be about 7.30. This means that there is a balance between the alkalinity and acidity in the human body so that it can optimally function.
When this value is under 7.30, it means that the body is acidic, and when this happens our body becomes the perfect environment for bacteria, yeast, and illnesses. They require this type of environment because they can easily spread in it. Our body will also take the minerals from our bones and vital organs, in order to try and neutralize the acidic environment. As a result of that, the reserves of essential minerals like sodium, calcium, magnesium, and potassium can drop to a dangerously low level, which can, in turn, lead to damage that can go undetected for years, up until the point it reaches unhealthy levels and ultimately, leads to acidosis.
In a study that was conducted by a team of researchers at the University of California, which included 9000 participants, it was concluded that people with chronic acidosis have a much higher risk of bone loss when compared with people that have normal pH levels.
If you want to recover and restore the pH balance in your body, you will need to prepare this drink that will help you do just that.
- Purified water
- Two lemons
- Two teaspoons of raw honey
How to prepare it:
You will need to squeeze the lemon juice into a glass and then pour the purified water and the honey. Stir the mixture well and then sip the lemonade during the rest of the day.
It is also very important to remember that citrus fruits are alkaline-forming. You will need about 8 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables in order to keep your body alkaline.
Grains, meat, and dairy products, on the other hand, will make your body acidic. According to many experts, it is recommended that an average diet should consist of 75% alkaline foods.
