Remember those little strips of paper that were handed to you during high school chem class? The pH strips? Well your body’s acidity is measured the same way. It is calculated in a scale of 0-14, with 7 being neutral/normal. Anything less than 7 is acidic and anything higher than 7 is alkaline.
Strive for being alkalized all the time! Doing so will better your anti-inflammatory system and help your body get rid of the everyday toxins. If your pH is not alkalized and is somewhere in the 0-6, then your enzymes can’t properly function thus reducing your body’s ability to detoxify. Also, the more alkalized you are the less cortisol you produce!
Alkalizing helps protein synthesis making it especially important if you’re a heavy meat eater and/or strength train. So do yourself a favor and Alkalize!
