The body regulates the pH of blood in a steady range of 7.35 – 7.45, if blood pH gets too low, the body has three ways to raise it:
Research suggests that bone density may be compromised by a ratio of high protein (acid forming) consumption to low vegetable (alkaline forming) consumption (Sellmeyer, D. E.)
Metabolic syndrome has been described as a “constellation of physiological screw-ups” which include:
Research performed at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center links the symptoms of metabolic syndrome (above) to an excessively acidic urine pH. The study shows that the lower your urine pH is, the more symptoms of metabolic syndrome you are likely to have. (Maalouf N. et. al)
Calcium and Magnesium deficiencies are related to arrhythmia, osteoporosis, migraine, and fatal myocardial infarction. A study on acid base status called Acid-Base Status Affects Renal Magnesium Losses in Healthy, Elderly Persons suggests that acidity in the body (referred to as net endogenous acid production) could be a factor in calcium and magnesium deficiencies. The list above is a partial list of problems that may be linked to acidity in the body. Research on the subject of acidity in the body is ongoing. (Rylander, R. and et al))
Everybody's body is different, and acidity in the body is just one factor that can contribute to health issues. You should speak with your doctor if you are concerned about acidity in your body.
