Our diet today is all about getting by. We fail to realize how our oral intake effects our lives. To be more specific, how it gives rise to diseases. Let me explain.
Our blood has red blood cells, which consist of 3 layers. At the core is the neutron with a neural charge, surrounded by the protons with a positive charge, the layer being the electrons, which has a negative charge. When two cells with the same charge come together, they repel one another. This is the main reason why cells move around freely in our blood.
Acid is simply an oversupply of protons, when these come into contact with electrons in our blood, they steal the cell’s electron. This attack is called oxidative stress, it gives birth to an illness. When two opposite charges come together; they chain together and slug as they flow inside the blood. The environment is said to be oxygen-poor and a breeding ground to micro-organisms. When oxygen goes down, it slows down processes inside the body too, the most important being the rate at which it converts sugar into energy or the metabolism rate.
pH levels are measured from a count of 1-14. 7 is the neutral point, any lower number is acidic; the higher number is alkaline. Our body struggles to maintain it’s natural pH level at 7.36, as any large variation, we would die.
The body works in two ways to deal acid, it either neutralizes the acid or it deposit it to other body parts to deal with it later. To neutralize acid, the body needs more nutrients from our body parts than initial acid intake, say for example if you had soda, your body needs 32 parts alkaline water at pH 10 to neutralize this acid. Alternatively, it could also take an electron from an antioxidant, this molecule is known for it's electron donating features. It is for this reason, high antioxidant and alkaline diet is highly recommended.
