Bodily fluids such as saliva, urine and blood play a vital role in how our body functions. However, too much acid buildup in these fluids can cause severe illnesses and health issues. Find out below how to fix these problems and get on the road to better health.
What is “Acidity”?
Acidity or acidosis refers to the amount of acid build up in our body. For our bodily fluids to do their job, we must maintain a healthy pH of 7.0 or above. Anything below that number is considered acidic.
You may have an excess of acid in your body if you are experiencing one or more of these ailments:
- Struggle to Lose Weight
- Muscle Aches
- Fragile Bones/Osteoporosis
- Dental Issues
- Tiredness or Insomnia
- An Increase in Mucus
- Dermatological Problems
Our bodies become more acidic for many reasons. The kinds of food we eat and beverage choices all affect the build up acid in our bodies. Alcohol, caffeine, processed foods and sugar all increase the body’s acidity levels. The air we breathe and environmental factors can also have an impact on acidosis forming.
How to Fix It
While you may feel the damage is already done, it can easily be fixed. Follow these tips to help rid your body of acid build up:
Stay Hydrated – One of the easiest ways to neutralize acid in your body is by consuming alkaline water. Alkaline water offers the premium hydration your body needs. By staying hydrated, your body will naturally eliminate the excess acid through the digestive tract.
Remove the Junk – Processed foods, sugary drinks, caffeine and alcohol all affect our body’s acid levels. They strip the calcium and magnesium from our muscles and bones leaving us susceptible to developing osteoporosis and other illnesses.
Change your Diet – Eating right goes hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle but it’s what you eat that helps neutralize acid in your body. Green, leafy vegetables such as kale, broccoli, arugula and celery have alkalizing properties that can combat the acid. Dried fruit and seafood (salmon and mackerel) provide the calcium and magnesium your body loses due to acidosis.
