Lately people are talking about the alkalizing diet or alkaline diet but how obvious and logical it benefits our health?
What is the blood Ph?
The pH is the measure of acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The acronym stands for potential hydrogen. PH values ranging from 0 to a maximum, which is 14.
A neutral pH, which is the one with the water has a value of 7. The blood pH is between 7.38 and 7.42 exactly, which means that their approach to water is extraordinary. Foods whose Ph is less than 7 are considered acidic foods and those whose Ph is higher, are alkaline foods.
Importance of the quality of the blood
Our quality of blood is essential to occur in the right way all the physiological functions of the body.
The cells feed on blood, and if the blood is too acidic or there is a significant amount of toxins, the processes discussed above are destabilized, making your potential and health status be undermined.
Your diet is key to this process, as poor diet produces many toxic and toxins that impair the quality of your blood.
Acid Alkaline Imbalance
Understand in a practical way as a destructive cycle that ultimately produces our blood poisoning occurs.
Earlier we spoke of the cells, but the cells which need to feed?. However, need amino acids, vitamins, minerals, oxygen and glucose. We will pay attention to the last two, to understand this process.
If you eat the right amount of glucose with food, there is a good balance between bacteria and fungi that help you get your internal processes, producing a correct communication between neurons in your brain.
Because eating habits that we have today, an extra amount of glucose that your body needs to produce your vital energy is consumed. This excess glucose, leads to a decrease in blood oxygen increase of pathogenic bacteria therein.
These organisms expel the bloodstream many toxins and toxic, causing poisoning your blood. The liver must process the alcohol produced by these bacteria, consuming glucose, leading to the creation of an acidic environment.
In this acidic environment are much easier to live pathogens and proliferate in more quantity. There begins the importance of feeding a tendency to have an alkaline, alkalizing diet to control this acidification and this increase of toxins. Need your internal flora is beneficial to your health and not the opposite.
This poisoning effect
Some of the negative effects that occur when your blood is too acidic.
- Mental confusion.
- Reduction of energy.
- Fatigue (lactic acid).
- Eliminating histamine (allergies).
- Free radicals are released.
- Lowering your immune system.
- Creating carcinogenic processes.
- Increase (toxic and purines) uric acid.
To eliminate this poisoning, it is advisable for a certain time, at least about three to four weeks to do a cleansing and detox diet.
You can choose the best you can perform and with which you feel more comfortable. The most important thing is that you reduce to a minimum these days, foods that are acidic. If you see the spirit of determination, make a meal plan based on alkaline foods.
From the moment you finish debugging this, I recommend you pay attention and you incorporate a higher percentage of alkaline foods in your diet. An alkalizing diet is not a diet for a few days. Rely on these foods as a primary objective in your health and wellness plan.
