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:
Breath –Excess acidity can be exhaled in the form of carbon dioxide
Urine –Acidic wastes are filtered by the kidneys
Bone – The body takes calcium from the bones to neutralize acidity
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 and Acidity in the Body
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)
