Do you know what acidosis is?

It affects many people who follow wrong rhythms, both of life and food. When you overdo it, the pH becomes too acidic and the body doesn't react as it should. Too many proteins, too little fruit, combined with little rest can lead to acidosis, which can lead to symptoms such as: migraine, water retention, heartburn, chronic fatigue.

Acidity is not something to be underestimated therefore, if it is not kept under control, it expands to all organs.

For example, when the body becomes too acidic, in order to maintain a slightly alkaline pH of the blood it absorbs calcium from wherever it can take it, primarily from the bones, favoring the onset of osteoporosis.

The same thing occurs when the body decides to expel acidity through the skin: here then appear acne, eczema, boils, irritation and so on.

The reference is in particular to the pH of the blood. The physiological pH of the blood is between 7.35 and 7.45. The expression acid-base balance, in biology, indicates the set of physiological processes that the organism puts in place to maintain a level of acidity compatible with the carrying out of the main metabolic functions.

Among the possible causes of acidosis, in addition to poor nutrition, even periods of stress, fatigue, drug abuse.

There are 5 simple tips to reduce acidosis :

1) Eat more alkalizing foods, such as dark green leafy vegetables, and reduce your intake of acidifying foods such as refined sugar, refined flours, and animal derivatives.

2) Choose organic food

3) When consuming acidifying foods alternate also eating alkalizing foods.

4) Despite its acidic taste, lemon has an alkalizing effect. It is useful to drink water and lemon in the morning on an empty stomach to rebalance the body and intestinal functions.

5) Take dietary supplements that contain alkaline minerals such as magnesium, sodium and calcium
