Can we really change our blood Ph with Alkaline Water?
What changes blood pH with diet has been researched for a very long time. Skeptics claim that stomach acid neutralizes the effect of high alkaline food and drink when introduced to the stomach and do not effect the PH of the body. This is simply not the case.
The term alkaline tide is used to define this increase in blood pH after a alkaline meal. There are two mechanisms that are triggered by the introduction of alkaline food and drink to the stomach.
1. The alkalinity of food is determined by the level of calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. These minerals are not effected by the stomach acid and are in part absorbed into the blood stream.
2. The pH of stomach acid is regulated between 2 - 4 pH. When Alkaline food and drink is consumed. the stomach must produce more acid in order to maintain its natural pH. This results in an increase in a sodium bicarbonate buffer in the blood leading to a relitive alkaline of the blood
Alka-Pure Alkaline Water promotes your body`s natural alkaline reserve. How does your body become Alkaline?
Numerous reports make bold statements that clearly document the your body`s chemistry change with food and drink.
