Escapes from acidification
About 80 percent of Europeans will suffer from acidification of the body, i.e. disturbed acid-base balance. It is the state of our body that makes us weakened, susceptibility to infection, drowsiness, skin and hair problems, constipation or diarrhea problems can occur. Why does acidification occur?
Different reactions occur in the body at the cellular level. They need ideal conditions, including, among other things, an appropriate pH. Naturally, it is just over 7.3 and will therefore be slightly alkaline. When we eat the wrong meals, the acidic components will start to predominate there, which will make it difficult for our body to function. Of course, at the beginning the body fights with this alone, but at some point it does not have such strength.
Causes of body acidification
As far as the causes of acidification are concerned, among others, lack of physical activity, stress, fast pace of life. But one of the most important reasons will be our food. The release of the ingredients during the transformation of the food determines whether the food is acidifying or alkalizing.
Among the acidifying ones one can mention:
carbonated sweet drinks,
coffee, black tea, alcohol.
On the other hand, deacidifying agents include:
buckwheat groats and lamb,
raw milk and cream,
vegetables (especially courgette, spinach, aubergine, radish, beetroot, broccoli, carrot, celery, tomato),
Most fruits (especially: kiwi, watermelons, bananas, peaches, citrushes, strawberries, raspberries),
It is clear that taste will not be a good indicator here, but it is worth knowing how to avoid acidification. The basic principle in this respect will be simple, namely that acidifying ingredients should be eliminated as far as possible. It is believed that the ideal ratio that can be obtained is 80% of alkaline ingredients and only 20% of acidic ones, and then we should take good care of our health.
What happens to excess acids?
Excess acids will be stored in the connective tissue, but it has its limitations and there comes a moment when this problem starts to intensify. Replacement of nutrient fluids, removal of harmful substances, the filtering function is weakened. Acidification, which will persist, makes these harmful compounds so many that the body is not able to cope with them and this leads to weakening and the appearance of signs of the first diseases.
