A healthy body is in balance.
Mineral Balance, Hormonal Balance, Acid-Base Balance...
When talking about Acid-Base Balance (pH Balance) we have to distinguish between Gastric Acid and Systemic Acidity.
We need healthy amounts of acid in our stomach to break down proteins, fats and carbs, to absorb all minerals and to function as a natural barrier for bad bacteria, parasites, and fungi.
Stress and our Standard American Diet (SAD) though, constantly increase levels of acidity in the blood, lymph and tissues – which we do not need.
The body has to compensate by sacrificing its alkaline reservoirs - minerals from bones and muscles - and the two buffering systems of the blood – Bicarbonate and Phosphate Dibasic.
Chronic Stress and SAD will slowly deplete these alkaline reservoirs, causing Osteoporosis or forcing the body to deposit acids in the tissues. Usually in the periphery, like hands and feet and skin.
AlkaPure, when taken between meals, rebalances gastric acid and replenishes the body's buffering systems. Bones and muscles no longer need to sacrifice their supplies.
Reflux, believed to be caused by too much stomach acid, and treated with acid blocking drugs,
can oftentimes be caused by the exact opposite: too little alkalinity.
Why else would the elderly, who have a low gastric acid production, have such trouble with reflux symptoms?
But the acidity issues do not end with just reflux.
Even a slightly acidic body has a higher tendency to create inflammation, usually in peripheral tissues, like:
Tendons: Plantar Fasciitis, Bursitis, Carpal Tunnel, Tennis Elbow,
Skin: Rosacea, Psoriasis, Dermatitis, Eczema, ...
Chronic acidity and inflammation are the starting points for chronic disease:
Reflux (GERD), Osteoporosis, Food Sensitivities, Allergies, Autoimmune Diseases, IBS, Colitis, Arteriosclerosis, Osteoarthritis, Vasculitis...
High systemic acidity inhibits our immune system and favors bacteria and viruses. This predisposes the body to re-occurring infections.
Chronic Sinusitis, Candidiasis, UTI's, Cellulitis, Herpes. Even Lyme Disease?
Combat acidity - Alkaline your body!
Maintaining alkalinity is essential for a healthy life.
