Acid/alkaline pH - the balance in the body - is a very important indicator of health.

Most important in the body is the pH of the blood, which ranges from 7.35 to 7.45. As you can see, the fluctuation of blood pH is very small, but even a very small deviation from this norm changes the body's electrochemical processes.

If a person eats healthily - eats natural food and practices a healthy lifestyle - the body easily maintains an optimal pH balance. Unfortunately, the diet of many people today is dominated by refined products: sugar, white bread and white flour products, white rice, unhealthy hydrogenated fats.

All these products greatly acidify the body, and in the long run cause health problems and chronic diseases.

What does our body do that it can no longer remove, because the removal capacity of the kidneys, skin, lungs or intestines is no longer sufficient? It creates temporary depots, terrible pollutant dumps, where it temporarily accumulates waste so that it can later be removed from the body at the right time. Most poisonous substances are in an acidic medium or produce acids themselves until they are destroyed. But where are they stored until they are removed from the body?

In the most important organs (heart, brain, lungs), poisonous substances cannot be accumulated for reasons of self-preservation. However, there are many other places in the body that can take a bigger load when trouble persists. Fat-soluble toxic substances are simply transported to fatty tissues and stored there.

When the acid stores are overflowing, then they move to the joints and manifest as gout attacks - swelling and pain in the finger joints. It is in those places that uric acid crystals are deposited, when the biological storages for this purpose are overflowing.

When there are too many acids in the body, they finally start to accumulate in the muscles. First in the connective tissue, then in the joints and tendons, and then in the muscles or groups of muscles that we use the least. These muscles are affected by acids and become stiff and prone to cramping. the process continues. Acids from the muscles enter the ligaments, which support the mobility of the joints. This is how rheumatism begins.

In addition, the acidic environment damages red blood cells.

The body balances the pH and tries as much as possible to maintain the optimal pH of the body, but we pay dearly for this: in order to neutralize the accumulated acid, the body takes alkaline minerals from the bones and other vital organs: calcium, magnesium, potassium, etc. It is also believed that the body produces cholesterol to protect against excess acid circulating in the body.

This is also one of the reasons why blood vessels narrow. Excess acid in the form of fat is deposited in various organs.

A low pH is believed to stimulate the production of triglycerides (a form of fat in the blood), which then end up on your waistline, thighs, blood vessel walls and other body organs. Fat storage also does a little to neutralize pH, which is why so many people are overweight today. And that makes it very difficult to get rid of that fat. In order to lose weight, one of the first things you need to do is to normalize your pH.

There are many cases where people managed to get rid of extra pounds easily and in a short time by balancing their pH.

Another place where excess acid accumulates is the joints, hence their diseases - arthritis, gout (this is a form of arthritis, as acid crystals, which should normally be removed through the kidneys, collect in the joints, and thus the joints become swollen and painful) and others.

Despite the body's efforts, if a person does nothing over time, the body depletes its alkaline reserves and as a result the intracellular fluid and even the blood become increasingly acidic.

This greatly affects the cellular function of energy production and causes people to feel tired (just look around at how many people today are constantly complaining of fatigue).

Excess acid reduces cell resistance and proper regenerative function and reduces oxygen delivery to cells. A low amount of oxygen in the cells allows viruses and bacteria to breed (a decrease in the amount of oxygen in the body suppresses the immune system, making it no longer able to fight off infections). The acidic and low-oxygen environment of the body is very favorable for cancer cells - all cancer patients have a very low pH, and the body is very "acidified".

Stress acidifies and ages the body.

In order to alkalinize the body, it is first necessary to give up or at least reduce the products that acidify the body: sugar, white bread and white flour products, white rice, unhealthy fats (hydrogenated: margarine, spreads, fats with a predominance of omega 6, soy, sunflower, corn oils) , proteins of animal origin (it should be used in moderation or not at all for a while), meat, dairy products.

The body is strongly acidified by coffee, alcohol, and energy drinks. All these drinks should be abandoned and replaced with water. By the way, if you want to neutralize a glass of coffee or cola (the acid in it), you need at least four glasses of water.

What alkalizes the body?

Fresh fruits and vegetables, various sprouts, fresh juices, green cocktails, eat as many green leafy vegetables as possible, lemon with water, running and other sports, deep breathing - this is the best way to maintain optimal body pH. Use products such as wormwood tea, coconut oil, ginger, mustard, sauerkraut, beetroot. If you eat seeds and nuts, it is better to keep them in water for at least a few hours.

It is also possible to use good quality alkaline minerals: calcium, magnesium, potassium.

MSM (methyl sulfonyl methane), which is part of "ELIXYRO" .

Also, this product contains a whole range of plants, berries, nutritious seaweed, which are dried at a temperature of up to 42 degrees, so the nutritional value is maximally maintained.

It is "ELIXYRAS" that helps to maintain alkalinity (pH) balance in the body. It is recommended to use it for a longer period (2-3 months) every day.

Method of use: mix 1-2 teaspoons (4 g) a day into juices, fruit or vegetable cocktails. You can drink it in the morning, between meals with water. Suitable for sports people.

You can also apply the alkaline detoxifying discharge "7-day super detox nutrition program" together with special products for this purpose: Clean, Elixir, Verminus, which help to restore the pH. The result is amazing: we have more energy, easily dissolve kilograms, which are actually so-called "slags".

Acid is also caused by well-known enemies of health - alcohol, smoking, coffee. It may seem very strange, but the acid and alkaline balance of the body is no less influenced by lifestyle. Stress, constant haste, immobility can also become the cause of an acidifying body.
