Acidity & Alkalinity Explained – For Human Health

Acidity & Alkalinity Can Determine the Condition of the Human Body

Acidity and alkalinity must be balanced for proper health - acid rain harms forests, and excesss body acidity harms health

Acid rain is bad for the planet; excessive acidity is most harmful to the body.

The human body depends on a proper biochemical balance for health. Key to our health is a balance between body acidity and alkalinity. Acidity and alkalinity has a profound impact on physical health. Many different kinds of acids influence the body, being produced as waste and existing as essential nutrients and digestive juices.

A vast range of chemical compounds can be measured in terms of their relative acidity or alkalinity. Acidity and alkalinity are measured on the PH (percent hydrogen) scale. The higher the concentration of hydrogen ions, the more acidic a given compound becomes. A PH of seven is neutral, while lower numbers are acid and higher numbers are alkaline.
