"pH of the Human Body - What is the Ideal Body pH?"
by Bryan Dixon


The normal pH of the human body ranges at 7.0 to 7.4. The pH scale ranges zero to 14, with zero being an extremely acidic state and 14, an extremely alkaline state. Maintaining our body's acidity and alkalinity at a balanced ratio will largely depend on our lifestyle and eating habits. In this article, let's discuss how the food we eat can affect our body pH and health.

Recent medical studies show that a balanced diet consists of 75 percent alkaline foods and only 25 percent of acid-containing foods. It is important to know that different foods can either be alkaline or acidic. Added to this, the levels of acidity and alkalinity vary from one food source to another.

For instance, vegetables and fruits like celery, cabbage, asparagus, lettuce, carrots, green beans, cucumber, melon, watermelon, papaya, apples, pears and grapefruit are just a few examples of high alkaline sources. Frequently eating these vegetable and fruit varieties is the key to achieve a well-balanced ph.

On the contrary, if our meals often consist of highly acidic foods such as meats (pork, beef, lamb), meat products (sausages, hot dogs, meatloaf), artificial sweeteners, white bread, canned products, pre-processed meals and instant meals, acid residues or acid wastes will surely build up inside our body.

Over acidity or the condition known as acidosis can damage our cells, tissues, organs and eventually, our body systems. This explains why people who are overweight are often the ones who experience tiredness, weakness, lethargy, stress, muscle pains, joint pains, and other symptoms associated with aging and chronic diseases. Obviously, those who are overweight or obese have higher levels of acid than alkaline in their system.

It is interesting to know that the ph of the human body can be kept at a balanced ratio by switching to a healthier diet and by making some changes in lifestyle. Along with eating proper meals, it is important to stay away from habits that can put our health at risk. Perhaps you will know that these bad habits include smoking, excessive drinking and leading an inactive lifestyle.

Yes, it is possible to keep the pH of the human body at a balance. Visit http://www.acidakalinediet.org today to know how the acid-alkaline diet system can help you stay fit and healthy. The site offers a free Alkaline Diet Chart and newsletter that you can use as a personal guide for good health.
