pH balance is the balance of acid and alkaline in all fluids and cells throughout the body and the body must balance the pH levels at a slightly alkaline level of 7.365 in order to survive. This balance is highly dependent on our diet and given the fact that typical American diet involves acid-forming foods like GMO foods, refined grains and processed foods; a majority of the population has acidic pH. Excessively acidic pH can lead to serious health issues, such as diabetes, heartburn, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.
According to Robert O. Young, most health issues occur as a result of being acidic, as parasites, viruses, bad bacteria, and Candida thrives in the acidic environment. On the other hand, an alkaline environment neutralizes bacteria and keeps your body functioning at optimal level.
