Body Alkalinity Benefits

all together. Ever wondered why baking soda relieves acidity or for that matter
chunks of lime are put into lakes to balance out the acidity in them caused be acid
rain. Both these answers are the same. Carbonates and bicarbonates will help
balance out acidity. The human body ideally maintains a pH of 7.4. This is alkaline in
nature and helps in the functioning of the body. By consuming acidic foods we tend to
make the acid level in our body rise. Here is where alkalinity comes in. foods with high
alkalinity will help us balance out this acid and so restore our pH to an alkaline 7.4
again.

In reference to water alkalinity means the measure of the amount of acid that can be
added to it without altering the pH. Water or any food does not need to have a high
pH to have alkalinity. This is the reason why an acidic fruit like lemon which has a high
acid pH also has high alkalinity. Mainly three kinds of chemical affect alkalinity, namely
carbonate, bicarbonate and hydroxide.The sum of three kinds of alkalinity makes the
total alkalinity of a solution. Alkalinity is the ability of water to resist changes in pH.
Now if we have water with high alkalinity it will keep our pH balanced despite the acid
foods we intake. Needless to say that water with high alkalinity will not be able to
fight the acidic affect on the body pH unlimitedly. Yet it does prevent as much as it
can the body pH from altering despite the acidic food that we consume. It is essential
there fore to consume water with high alkalinity so that it helps maintain the body pH
to 7.4.

Alkalinity of a solution is determined by its ability to fight acids and their affects on the
pH. When we consume acidic foods they alter our body pH and tilt them towards an
acidic side thus causing our immune system to weaken and diseases to strike. In take
of water which has high alkalinity will prevent the acids from affecting our body pH
and so help us to lead healthy long lives.

Let us begin by looking into the
definition of alkalinity. Alkalinity is
the measure of the ability of a
solution to neutralize acids to
equivalent carbonates or
bicarbonates. This is not the same
thing as neutralizing acids and also
different from the pH of a
solution. The pH of a solution can
be lowered by exposing it to
carbon dioxide but its alkalinity
shall remain the same. Alkalinity is
measured in mEq/L this is called
milliequivalent per liter.

In reference to an alkaline diet
alkalinity takes on a new meaning
