The pH level of a substance is the measure of potential hydrogen on a scale of 0 to 14. On this scale, a measurement of less than 7.0 is called acidic and greater than 7.0 is alkaline. In this way pH is used to measure acidity versus alkalinity in everything from the soil in your garden, and the water in your swimming pool, to the blood cells in your body.
Why is it so important to keep your blood pH on the alkaline side? Basically because extensive research has shown that an alkaline Ph increases the amount of oxygen in your blood. This is a good thing since the lack of oxygen in your blood cells causes disease.
When our blood becomes too acidic we enter a state of acidosis. Even a slight deviance from the ideal pH of 7.4 can cause problems, starting with loss of energy and concentration…
